London Maroon Cartridge and StylusTimer Sweepstakes

Register to win a London Maroon Cartridge (Value $950.00 ea) and a StylusTimer (value $19.95) we are giving away.

According to the company:

"The legendary London (Decca) cartridge is known for its extraordinary and unmatched musicality, delivered by its unique transducer design.


With a StylusTimer (2021 Stereophile Recommended Component) you can track cartridge break in-time, total stylus time, and the time you spend enjoying music, while preserving your system’s sound quality and protecting your records from damage from a worn stylus."

The cartridge looks lovely. I have a couple StylusTimers. They work like a charm unless you get too sleepy and forget to turn it off when you shut down your rig.
