The Tonar Pure Cork Turntable Mat is an ideal upgrade or replacement for a standard turntable mat, and can offer sonic improvements. Cork mats offer reduced static when compared to felt mats, and can also offer small improvements to resolution and dynamics.
Acoustic feedback can be a big problem when playing records - the sound projected by the speakers comes back to the record player and causes it to vibrate. The problem is that there is a very slight time difference between the reproduced sound and the sound that is fed back onto the record player. This results in a big loss of detail and clarity and makes the sound “muddy”. So every effort has to be done to isolate the record player from its surroundings as well as to isolate the record from the record player.
In order to reduce acoustic feedback from the surroundings back to the record and the cartridge a lot of effort has gone into developing turntable mats that make the reproduced sound crystal clear with great separation and detail. This has been done by experimenting with various materials which absorb unwanted vibrations which were not present in the original recording. Now many people are trying to combine these different materials as a sandwich at the same time in order to reach better results. Now Tonar offers you this opportunity to experiment yourself but at modest pricing.
In order to enhance the better contact between the record and the mat, the center part – with the dimensions of the label have been recessed to accommodate the thicker label part.
