The STB-MS is the original Oyaide vinyl stabilizer, made from a detachable 10 parts with its weight changeable by the number of the weights for your best timbre tuning - a beautiful and effective vinyl weight. Use with any turntable with an exposed centre spindle (that's most of the turntables available but we mention this for those that may use any obscure model where the centre spindle is covered for playback, as is the case when using some parallel tracking arms).
Why use a vinyl weight? Ever noticed how some vinyl doesn't lay perfectly flat? Many vinyl LPs are very slightly warped or bowed - sometimes only as much as a mm or two, but enough that the sound performance from your hi-fi phono cartridge can be greatly improved by making sure the vinyl is flat. Even if you're using an effective (higher friction) turntable mat, a weight will also help prevent slight slippage of your LP as it turns and maintaining better speed stability.
The 10 component parts of STB-MS can be assemble/disassemble to adjust the sound (second picture above).
