The Music Mat from Cartridge Man is the result of many countless weeks of development; made from a pitted soft polymer, it's designed to stick to your platter and offer a substantial upgrade in vinyl playback performance. The mat has a very low surface tension which gives the underside a sticky feel, allowing it to weld itself to the surface, making a bond of great integrity and an inert base for the record to lie on. The topside has been treated to prevent the same level of adhesion to the record, without compromising the compliance or inherent quality of the design.
The mat provides isolation from the mechanics of the turntable whilst giving the record soft but stable support. The only thing you need to do before playing a record is to re-set the VTA of your tonearm (as the mat is 6mm thick), then sit back and enjoy the music.
We've tried the Music Mat at the Audio Affair showroom on a few turntables and the results are sonically stunning. Due to its damping properties and ability to isolate the record from platter, music is played with a lower noise floor, greater dynamics and more accurate sound staging. Give one a try and hear the benefits for yourself.
