Designed as a direct replacement for the supplied platter mat of many high quality turntables, this mat is the result of many years of research and is a felt and cloth sandwich construction of uniform thickness. It provides a precise support of the record on the platter whilst protecting the groove from damage that can be sustained using a hard surface such as glass or metal. If replacing a thick rubber or felt mat, the stylus VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle) may need adjustment. If used with a Linn turntable, the process of ‘clocking’ the platter may be beneficial. The mat may be used either side uppermost with identical results. Each mat comes packaged in a presentation protective sleeve and makes an ideal gift for any vinyl hi-fi enthusiast. You can be sure that the mat will provide years of enhanced listening pleasure for anyone with a Linn, Rega, Pink Triangle, Funk Firm, Pro-Ject, Clearaudio or Roksan turntable. Or, if you or someone you know owns a classic turntable, perhaps manufactured by Ariston, Walker, Manticore, Systemdek, Lenco, Luxman, Micro or Garrard, then the Collaro Audio Precision Turntable Mat will also provide an enhanced acoustic experience.
