Yamaha GT-5000 Turntable Winner Announced

Valued at $12,999 the Yamaha GT-5000 is the best prize ever offered on StereoNET for a competition, and we're pleased to now announce the winner.

A world-class turntable, it's little surprise we received thousands of entries. Entry was simple, all you had to do was tell us in 25 words or less - “If you could play only one album on the GT-5000, what would it be and why?” - and while there were many wonderful submissions (and some unusual and even weird), the mammoth task of judging the entries is now complete.

Without further ado, congratulations to Bartholomew Santamaria of Victoria, who said:

Radiohead Kid A because I want to hear the speakers disappear while playing 'How to Disappear' completely.

Yamaha Australia has now contacted the fortunate winner who as you would expect, couldn't believe he'd won!

Shaun McMahon, Assistant Marketing Manager at Yamaha Music Australia, told StereoNET:

We're excited to be launching Yamaha's new flagship GT-5000 in Australia. The fantastic response we've had at the StereoNET Melbourne Hi-Fi Show and to the competition is a testament to the enduring appeal of Hi-Fi.

We'd like to thank our readers and all those that entered, and genuinely appreciate the support of Yamaha Australia for their very generous prize.
