Marantz TT-15 Turntable with Clearaudio Virtuoso Wood MM Cartridge plus MoFi Accessories from Music Direct Sweepstakes

Register to win a Marantz TT-15 Turntable with the amazing Clearaudio Virtuoso Wood moving magnet cartridge from Music Direct (MSRP $2020.00) we are giving away.

According to Music Direct:

This turntable package will also come with a handful of new Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab LPs, a Mobile Fidelity Record Brush and Mobile Fidelity Record Care Fluids. Music Direct will even throw in a custom made dustcover. This special package has an estimated value of over $2,000. Howís that for a holiday give-away?

Marantz really killed the competition with their complete turntable package, the Marantz TT-15. Designed by Marantz and built for them by Clearaudio, the TT-15 is a contoured acrylic table with an outboard motor, a very thick, inert acrylic platter on an inverted bearing, with special anti-resonance isolation feet and a sophisticated tonearm with an anodized Aluminum armwand. To make this analog package an even better value, the TT-15 comes complete with the fantastic Clearaudio Virtuoso Ebony Wood Cartridge; one of the best sounding MM cartridges we sell! We fell in love at first sight...and at first listen, we were even more impressed.'s esteemed Editor-In-Chief Michael Fremer enjoyed his time with this table. In his Stereophile review he wrote about his time with the table. Good luck to all the Analog Planet readers.

If you read the fine print sweapstakes are for U.S resident's only. Pity. International shipping is common these day... I'm sure winners outside the U.S would be happy to pay shipping costs. Maybe this could be made clearer in the main post?

It is a beauty.  I believe it is based on a Clearaudio design (Emotion).  No doubt it sounds as good as it looks.

I will be getting a new TT in 2013, probably my last one.  I have been looking at so many tables lately, that it is hard to believe that if this vinly format were not "dead" that I would have such a huge assortment and any price point I wanted that it would take forever to wade through them all.  OH, wait, it does.  alll one has to do is go to,, MusicDirect,com and see how "un-dead" vinyl is today. It is remarkable.

As I look at all the options I always come back to this Marantz table, even knowing they did not manufacture it, but did a super job in marketing it and with the ClearAudio Cart premounted made it one of the best values in all of TT land. 

To win this one would be sweet, but right now this Marantz TT15  is on my list along with a VPI Traveler, Rega RP-6, a Thorens 309, Sota Satellite with a Rega Arm, Project 2 Xperience, or the new retro Merrill AR remake table with a Rega Arm. All in the same price ballpark wise and none would be a mistake to own. I doubt that I would even be pleased with a Project Debut Carbon with the Ortofon Red and wonder how they can market such a great bargain in 2012. What a great time to be into vinyl, and to never have left. 

SteveG's picture

Missed the traveler would love to win this one

rudirudi's picture

Sold it cheap and gave away my vinyl when cd's arrived. Idiot!  Started all over a couple of years ago so this would be great to have.
