RENOWNED turntable maker Vertere Acoustics has come out with its first record platter mat. The Techno Mat has a “randomly fibrous designed top layer that provides the record with an almost air cushion like support.”
According to the company, the air cushion “keeps the inherent properties and characteristics of the vinyl record itself unchanged”, while the bonded cork/polymer compound layer “provides the required interface and connection to the platter in an inert manner.”
“The two, in combination, create as ‘neutral’ a support for the vinyl record as possible.”
The Techno Mat, which costs £130, comes in two spindle-size versions – 4.5mm for Vertere’s MG-1, SG-1 and RG-1 record players, and 7mm for other turntables. Specify your size when ordering.
