Wow - VPI, SVS and Nordost - all great names, and great products from what I've heard of them at shows and dealers. I can just imagine how good they will sound together. Fortunately, I never got rid of my vinyl collection (started collecting in 70s) and they're in good shape so I don't have to buy reissues. I don't have the Disney offerings so would love to have those, too.

Thanks for offering this sweepstakes. Good luck to all entrants,
