  • Blue Horizon Promat

    High performance record mat

    The Blue Horizon record mat keeps firm hold of every record played, whilst suppressing the resonance generated during playback. It’s dual-layer design makes it easy to adapt to different record thicknesses without needing to alter tonearm height (VTA). The result is the perfect coupling between record and platter – an utterly silent foundation, ensuring every drop of musical detail within the groove is delivered with unfettered clarity.

    The Blue Horizon Record Mat delivers clear audible improvements - the sound gains greater resolution and focus, with enhanced detail and improved bass definition; music sounds more real, more vital.

  • Les Davis Audio 33 1/3D turntable Slip Mat

    Why is it needed

    Simply stated, constrained layer damping (CLD) is a modern technology used to suppress vibrations. CLD involves a viscoelastic material that is sandwiched between two layers of a stiffer material. This approach to vibration control is used in a number of applications, most notably in the aerospace and aviation industry.

    Technology

    In other words, CLD is based on solid scientific research. It is proven to be extremely effective in reducing vibrations in all types of precision applications.

    After researching CLD, Les Davis naturally saw its potential in the high-end audio industry. He developed his own proprietary CLD material and tested it over an extended period of time. This resulted, of course, in Les Davis Audio 3D Constrained Layer Damping devices and now also the turntable 33 1/3 record slipmat.

  • Pro-Ject Acryl-It E

    This is a must-have upgrade for Pro-ject turntables. This unit is designed for the Elemental and Essential models. 

    One of the main criticisms of Pro-Ject turntables is their metal platters, that may be heavy but are also extremely acoustically resonant. Not good, when these resonances can be picked up by the needle and amplified through your system. 

    The Acryl-It E, however, is an Acrylic platter that is highly acoustically dampening. And easy and relatively cost effective upgrade for your Vinyl player.

    It also really updates the look of your turntable. No felt matt needed with these so there's just the sexy transparent acrylic between you and Vinyl Nirvana.
