Cork Turntable Mats


What do you recon to cork turntable mats? Is it worth getting the Project mat for my Project Debut SB 2 – will there be an improvement from the felt mat?

Thanks

Re: Cork Turntable Mats

I prefer mats from Dundee myself.

Seriously though, I think cork instead of felt on that level of tt will make little, if any difference. In my view you'd be better of making an improvement on the vinyl/platter connection/synergy by adding a reasonably cheap Michell record clamp and sticking with the felt mat the Pro-ject designers considered and approved.

... which cross the Tay Road Bridge. I think I may have got my countries mixed up. :~ Oh well, I did fail my Geography GCE but at least I know that Europe isn't a country, as most Americans believe.

Re: Cork Turntable Mats

Interesting - would an acrylic platter make much difference with my Xpression1?

No. What difference could it make? Think about it, it's just a support.

I found the Ringmat made a slight difference for the better on my P3. £50. Yes, you can stop laughing now thanks...

Re: Cork Turntable Mats

When I made my own mat I also made one for a friend at work with a much more serious system than my own as he was curious, and he was pretty impressed (Think it took him by surprise), he has not done a back to back against his ringmat yet as it entails altering arm height but I will let you know if he is still impressed after.
