Oyaide BR-12 Turntable Mat (includes a Strobo disc and overhang gauge)

At its sensational appearance in 2010, Oyaide “MJ-12” aluminum turntable sheet attracted audiophile’s attention by its beautiful figure. Then they have started to produce its option item which enhances the performance of MJ-12, that was the butyl rubber 1mm thin turntable sheet, BR-ONE.
Now Oyaide had done many butyl rubber compound test and they found , to enhance BR-ONE's vibration suppresion, tungsten is the material that can improve sound quality. They also found that MJ-12's tapered shape and tuning hole layout pattern on it is also effective with rubber material.
With these findings taken into design, Oyaide has developed new turntable sheet , BR-12.


BR-12 is a vibration-damping butyl rubber sheet that takes its tapered shape and tuning hole layout after MJ-12, Pyaide's aluminum turntable sheet. With high-friction butyl rubber it has great grip and great contact to vynl disc to avoid slip even when its used with high pressure stylus.
From centre to perimeter, it has a taper of 1.0 degree elevated angle. It will correct a vinyll disc's warpage by the rubber sheet tightly sticking to it. Then stylus movement will get stable to trace the groove. The tapered sheet has 18 tuning holes, it contributes more to improve sound quality. The holes work also as finger rest when removing 10inch or EP discs. Its diameter has been made 294mm to make it easy to remove LP disc(300mm). Thickness is 5mm 
It also comes with a really rather nice Strobo disc and overhang gauge.

great turntable mat

I've replaced the original mat on my Technics SL-1200 GR. It makes a hell of a difference (in a positive way). Better ease, better bass and more detail. I've just the Oyaide BR-one as a kund of sub-mat.

Maybe it's an upgrade for the Technics turntable, but, for my analog system, Nottingham and Origin Live, it works very well, much better than other mat.

Very well made mat

The Oyiade exudes real quality manufacturing - in a way that the stock mat on my Technics SL1200G did'n't - and I bought it to get an extra couple of mm up at the headshell end, to help with setting VTA in a 17mm high cartridge.

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.

Oyaide BR-12 Turntable Mat
Tuesday, 9 September 2014  | 

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.
