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.
Great quality and improved sound, although it is slightly thicker than 3mm. I haven't reset my vta as thinner vinyl sounds better with this mat and I switch back to the original mat for 180g vinyl.

This mat decreased the noise floor in the grooves, but at the same time it increased the music in the grooves! A good product and a worthwhile purchased.
As described. Thanks
There was a time when everything made sense and happened for a reason, not just for marketing hype. While acoustically the combination is good (cork and rubber), there are 2 drawbacks:1. The diameter, which should be smaller, to fit just under the playing area (aprox 287-290 would've been fine) and also compensate for the warps which are mostly situated on the outside region.2. The label recess could have been deeper, as vinyl with more prominent labels get lifted because of the small depth of the recess, and also unregulated. I started to smooth it down and regulate with some sandpaper, 180 granulation, and it ends up with a nice finish and also getting the depth right. But for this money, this shouldn't happen!Acoustically, i prefer it over other materials, as the cork brings improvements to the bass and the rubber to the mid and highs.
I find it surprising that turntable manufacturers continue to use flimsy felt mats. This cork and rubber mat significantly reduces static and background noise. Bass is subtly enhanced and vocals sound that little bit more present. The only reason I’ve not awarded five stars is that Analogue Studio’s similarly priced leather mat is - on my Rega 3 and with the majority of my LPs - just that little bit smoother, with less static still and more beguiling looks.
Works well, sounds great , would buy again, excellent in all respects.
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.
