Pro-Ject Audio Cork It Turntable Mat - Sound tuning through replacement of platter mat!
Turntable mats have been always a big discussion how they influence the sound. The interaction between the record and the surface can be tracked very easily by the super-sensitivity of a good pick up cartridge.
Common felt mats give a smooth contact between record and platter but has the disadvantage with static. Also the damping ability is very limited which can be a problem with metal platters. Thick rubbermats over-dampen the record and have an isolation effect which leaves the static on the record and audible noise clicks are the result.
Leather and Cork are 2 different, but very interesting, options to upgrade the sound quality. Resonances are damped more effectively than felt, they keep dust away and they have also enough connectivity to avoid static.
What is better depends on taste and the actual platter design, and this is a very cost effective way to improve the sound and have less noise by static and dust. You can hear a difference!
