The ultimate mat for any turntable
Blue Horizon Record Mat
*Adapts to different record thickness,
*No need to adjust VTA
*The Blue Horizon Record Mat has had a stunning first UK review by Paul Rigby in the August 2010 issue of Hifi World
This high-performance record mat is made from a unique composite of India rubber, cork and leather. Its fine, granular composition keeps firm hold of every record played, whilst suppressing the resonance generated during playback.The mat’s dual-layer design makes it easy to adapt to different record thicknesses without needing to alter tonearm height (VTA) – use the first layer for audiophile-grade vinyl (180g), add the second for standard records (120g).The result is the perfect coupling between record and platter – an utterly silent foundation, ensuring every drop of musical detail within the groove is delivered with unfettered clarity.
"The Blue Horizon mat brought order to the sonic chaos. Bass not only had structure for the first time but also a measure of breadth and depth... Vocals were far more engaging... Midrange duties revealed a greater sense of detail and less flustered quality."

Clearly audible the diference to the stock felt mat. The bass is more defined and controlled, midrange and highs are sweet and clear.Thanks Analogue Seduction for the excellent service!

Had been looking to improve on the 1.5mm felt mat which came with my substantial 5 point suspended TT with heavy brass platter.Blue Horizon gave broad improvement in all areas - using the single layer as I have VTA adjustments. Whilst personally would rather have had a black or dark grey mat the sound won the day over the other 5 mats tried all highly regarded three of which provided a more forward and coloured midrange and to a lesser degree more coloured but lighter bass. Blue Horizon provided a sweet and enjoyable listening experience compared with the felt mat and without the compromises of the other aftermarket mats.
The Blue Horizon Pro Mat performs as described. This mat brings out more background to any music and it's two piece design makes it easy to adjust from thinner to thicker vinyl. It's not inexpensive but then good designs and well made products never are. I would recommend the Blue Horizon turntable mat to anyone.
