Register to win an Ortofon 2M Black Phono Cartridge from Music Direct (MSRP $720.00) we are giving away.

From Music Direct:

Music Direct is happy to offer a brand-new Ortofon 2M Black for one lucky subscriber to Michael Fremer’s Analog Planet. The flagship of the 2M line, the Black is absolutely one of the finest Moving Magnet cartridges ever built. The 2M Black has Ortofon’ s best Shibata stylus, which is usually found on much more expensive cartridges.  It’s fast, dynamic, extremely well-detailed, yet supremely musical. A Music Direct best-seller, this $720 cartridge digs deep down into the grooves, playing parts of the groove no other stylus has ever reached. Good luck to all of you.

Raising your kids right requires teaching them good habits at a young age. On their path to adulthood, they learn the importance of routine and instill those good habits that just grazed over their heads in their younger years. It seems John R. Comstock of Loxley, Alabama is doing it right.

Back in July, Analog Planet held our biggest sweepstakes yet. We randomly selected twenty-five individual winners and sent each a carefully packed LP of Rumer’s Boys Don’t Cry. When Mikey reviewed this album, he was, "enthralled from beginning to end.” Did our winners feel the same?

Did you win that Audio-Technica AT95E cartridge in our recent cartridge comparison sweepstakes? Or maybe you won the Grado Prestige Gold 1?

No you didn't. These guys did.

Dennis H. of Allen, Texas (left) has been a fan of AnalogPlanet since its inception, and before that, he read Mikey's MusicAngle. His college-bound sound-loving son recently announced his revelation that vinyl sounds better than CDs. Dennis will give his son the AT95E.

Jeffrey G., affectionately known by the username Glotz, won the Grado cartridge. Here's a picture of the cartridge waiting to be installed on his VPI HW-19. Classic setup!
