Purchased this as the final step in an audiophile upgrade of a Technics SL1200. Significant improvement to SQ from the cork platter matt I had on previously (which itself was a lot better than a felt Dj slipmat!). BR-12 seems to do a very good job of reducing the 'ringing' resonance of the SL-1200 platter. Tightens up the sound admirably. Very happy.

It really works.
I purchased this mat because I was unhappy with the thin felt mat that was provided with the Rega RP10 deck. I found that it kept sticking to the record every time I removed a record from the platter and I also didn't like the white colour of it. After careful research of possible suitable alternative black mats I was impressed with the write-up on the BR-12 and purchased one. Even on the first play of a record after installing it I was amazed at the improved sound, better bass and better grip of the record. Clearly, a lot of thought has gone into the design as it has a central recess for the record label and the 1 degree slope really helps to give maximum support to the record, especially if it is not completely flat. Not a cheap product but it certainly does what the manufacturer's claim and the improved grip, better sound and a very professional look make it a very worthwhile purchase.
