Our cork and rubber turntable mat will provide across the board sonic improvement. Blacker background, cleaner and sharper imaging, improved dynamic range, tighter bass response. Suitable for most turntables 3.0mm thick.
This mat is a unique combination of cork and rubber granules. This composite layer absorbs resonances and vibrations.
Bought as an upgrade to the felt mat supplied with my Linn Axis. Linn traditionally have used & recommended felt mats for years, but after getting increasingly frustrated with static problems & desiring the audible rewards reviews had promised I took the plunge. I'm really impressed with this mat. It really tightens up the focus of vocals & instruments alike, tighter control of bass & treble, clear transient attack of notes & depth & placement of instruments, quieter backgrounds too. Greatly reduced static too. Great product at a great price.

This is the first thing i've upgraded on a Gemini DJ deck i've been given. It's a solid turntable so I thought i'd try and make it sound better. I replaced the felt slip mat with this and its seems (to my ears) to have tightened up the bottom end. It's a quality product and looks nice on the deck too.
This turntable mat is well made, ordering simple, delivery was speedy and arrives well packaged. Simple to install, just throw the old mat to one side and place it on the platter. No need to adjust VTA and put on well know vinyl and enjoy. Surface noise is reduced, bass notes have better control, treble is more refined, voices are more present and there is more musicality of the tracks.
I do notice a difference in sound quality. Less vibration to my records.
Remarkable little upgrade, it's tamed the highs and the lows from my old floors standing speakers, I didn't think i would find anything, but this mat is brilliant a great upgrade from your basic mat, Oh yeah less static too
Has the feel of a quality product with the advantage of reducing the static the was being induced when using Rega's felt mat. Less pops and much better sound. Recommended
System used:Vintage Yamaha CR-820 receiver, recently overhauled. Vintage Yamaha YP-511 turntable, recently overhauled. Ortofon 2M Red cartridge. Four Klipsch speakers.After several listening sessions of Rise by Herb Alpert using the original rubber mat and the new cork rubber mat, I can't tell the difference in the sound. The whole system performs really well. But that is hardly the point. The old rubber mat looked really tired. The new Analogue Studio cork rubber mat is very well made, performs well and looks great on the turntable. Overall, the Analogue Studio cork rubber turntable mat is an excellent mat at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

Bought as part of an 'audiophile upgrade' for one of my old Technics SL-1200 MKii decks. Amazing how much difference to the sound quality this makes vs an old felt slip-mat. The description and other reviews here say it all.
I tried the mat today at lunch time. I made severals tests and i was so impressed. Bass are punchy, magnified spatial 3D, and clearer and accurate trebles.I highly recommend it.
