Ringmat LP Record Support System
Awarded hi-fi+ PRODUCT of the YEAR 2000, the RINGMAT SUPPORT SYSTEM continues in its present successful form. With the addition of the new ANNIVERSARY GOLD SPOT RINGMAT, LP BLUE and STATCAP and the MkII version of the Ringcap, all released since the Award, analogue reproduction now reaches a totally new level of performance.
Ringmat Support Systems are modular by design and they all revolve around the use of a Ringmat, which is the anchor component. Ringmat Support Systems are a more cost-effective way of acquiring all the four modules, and come in a box (rather like a boxed set of LPs) with a full set of instructions. Except where Ringmat Spacers are eventually desired, the extra cost of acquiring the modules individually is not very much more.
The four principal components are:
A Ringmat (there are four models)
Ringmat Base Platter Mat & Ringmat Spacers
An LP Statmat
For those users who already have a Ringmat, it is possible to buy a Support System without a Ringmat, as well as the individual modules.
The Full Version includes a Spacer Mat and a standard set of 8 Ringmat Spacers, a Ringmat of choice, a Ringcap and a choice of the Standard LP Statmat or the LP Blue Statmat and Statcap. It comes with a full set of instructions and, as a complimentary bonus, the booklet ‘How to Set Up and Fine Tune a Turntable’ by John Rogers.
The MRA is a starter/economy version. The only difference from the Full Version is that the MRA Version only has 1 Clear and 1 Slate Spacer instead of the standard set of 8 Spacers. Additional individual Spacers can be purchased separately. Nor does the MRA version include the booklet ‘How to Set Up and Fine Tune a Turntable’ by John Rogers.
