Turntable mats can make vinyl sound clearer with greater separation and detail. Both cork and rubber are known to dampen and absorb unwanted vibrations and this Tonar composite cork/rubber mat works very well on many turntables, particularly on steel and lightweight turntable platters, due to its highly non-resonant properties.

In order to enhance contact between the record and the mat, the centre area is recessed to accommodate the label.

    Material: Cork and rubber composite
    Thickness: 3mm thick
    Outer Diameter: 295mm
    Inner Diameter: 7mm

Acoustic feedback is one of the big problems when playing records, as is 'ringing' from the turntable platter. There is a very slight time difference between the reproduced sound 'hitting' the record, that is then fed back through the stylus, plus micro-vibration from platter resonances. These both result in a big loss of detail and clarity that can make the sound “muddy” and often thin sounding. Isolating the record from its surroundings as well as from the record player itself does improve sound quality.

Mats matter

During the past 20 years the quality of record players and vinyl records have improved dramatically.
Acoustic feedback is one of the big problems when playing records. The cause is the sound that has just been produced by the speakers which comes back to the record player and cause it to vibrate. The problems 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.
