Ever heard the expression, “Life is sort of a circle. You come back to a lot of the interests that you had early in life” (Eric Kandel)? I think that is true for many of us. We get nostalgic about many things like candy, TV shows, and especially music. Re-explore the music of your youth by entering this contest for a chance to win a fantastic Audio-Technica turntable and headphones package: the best of old and new technology for your listening pleasure.

Bring on the nostalgia with Audio-Technica turntables

I have a very selective collection of records, mostly of music from the distant past, records I picked up at flea markets, or garage sales, songs that take me back to simpler times. My kids bought me a turntable a few years ago, and since then they continue to add to my collection each father’s day, or birthday, gifting one album that they know I’ll cherish. Iconic Floyd, Radiohead, U2: some of the recent additions I’ve received. I don’t listen to them often: just enough to rekindle great memories, and great feelings.

Vinyl just makes music, and the reasons for listening to it, accessible in a different way. Similarly, the Audio-Technica turntable that we are giving away in this contest allows you to experience music in old and new ways.

Best Buy blogger, Brad Moon, reviewed the turntable we are giving away. He explained how easy it is to set up, and how fast you can get from opening the product to enjoying your tunes. He also discussed one of the cool features of this turntable: bluetooth connectivity!

Bring on the new tech with Audio-Technica BT headphones

Brad discussed how easy it is to pair the turntable with the Audio-Technica BT headphones. We’re including these headphones as part of the prize for this contest so that you too can enjoy your vinyl, as you walk around the house, at any volume, without disturbing others in your home. Of course you can use the Bluetooth feature to send the music from the turntable to your Bluetooth speakers too. Enter now and you may be able to get the party started, and share your vinyl loudly and proudly with family and friends.


Entering is easy but you can only enter once. Usually for these contests I ask you to tell us what you love about the contest prize, but in this case, I think it’s more appropriate to ask about your music preference. In a comment below this post, tell us what song you most want to hear played on this turntable.


After the contest has ended, we will draw one entry from all eligible entries to win the Audio-Technica turntable and headphones that Brad Moon reviewed.

This contest runs from March 28th until April 11th.

Remember you can only enter once. However, there must be a few vinyl loving audiophiles in your life to share this contest with!

Good Luck.

  1. My Dual turntable has died. Looking forward to pulling out an old CSN album and playing “Suite Judy Blue Eyes”

  2. Having a turntable would bring back amazing memories, of listening to the Beatles when their albums first came out. I long for those days….

  3. I would most want to hear Prince’s Purple Rain on this turntable as it would bring out the tonal range of the song, from the subtle beginning of the guitar to the steady rise of the music as the song explodes in a true tribute to the style of Jimmi Hendrix who was an inspiration to the artistry that Prince perfected.

    Only an Audio-Technica turntable can do justice for all that Purple Rain has to offer to qualifying nostalgic ears of the vinyl era.

  4. Sinatra’s “Send in the Clowns.” Just kills me the lyrics and sadness expressed as only he could.

  5. I recently picked up 2 great Smashing Pumpkins albums on vinyl – MCIS and Siamese Dream. I’d love to hear “Mayonaise” on this sweet turntable.

  6. I enjoy all genres of music. I miss the days of listening to vinyl records. The 80s were awesome! I’d love to listen to my “Disney, The Black Hole” record again 😀

  7. I want to sit back, headphones on, eyes closed, hands behind my head, and listen to Fleetwood Mac “Second Hand News”

  8. Im a music producer and DJ and it would be great to be able to play vinyl records and sample them for use in my music 🙂

  9. My music preference is vinyl :-).
    People that see my vinyl collection find it very eclectic with basically almost every genre covered on some level. If i had to say if there is one way I lean more towards would be alternative or classic rock.

    I already have one Audio-Technica turntable in my collection and it has been great paired with a good cartridge (AT-ML440). This one intrigues me with the Bluetooth connection.

  10. I’m a big fan of movie scores, great to listen to as I work. However I dont have any on vinyl. Classic Rock will have to do in it’s absence.
