Crave giveaway: Audio-Technica AT-LP60 turntable for the vinyl revival
Win a modern take on the old turntable, a compact, fully automatic model that connects directly to your computer or home stereo.
Congrats to Van D. of Los Angeles for winning a $100 gift certificate to online art marketplace Nuvango in last week's giveaway. Back in the olden days, people used to play music using things called vinyl records. Interested in interacting with one of these quaint relics from the MadMen-o-zoic era? Then you'll like this week's prize.
We're giving away an Audio-Technica AT-LP60 fully automatic stereo turntable ideal for those discovering the vinyl revival or getting reacquainted with their LP collection.
The compact T-LP60 is a belt-drive turntable, the same drive system used by the majority of audiophile turntables. It features a built-in phono preamplifier for connecting directly to your computer, home stereo, or other components without a dedicated turntable input, and plays at speeds of 33.3 or 45rpm.
"With its impressive performance, easy operation, and unbeatable price, the Audio-Technica AT-LP60 is the ideal turntable for anyone looking to get into vinyl," writes CNET reviewer Steve Guttenberg, who adds that it plays 7- and 12-inch records "with precision and verve."
Normally, an Audio-Technica AT-LP60 would run you $119.95, but this is your chance to get one for free. So what do you have to do win this modern take on the record player and channel your inner Don Draper? There are a few rules, so please read carefully.
