"Sound Quality is Enhanced"
Get better overall sound from your turntable with the Leather-It upgrade turntable mat from Pro-Ject.
"The sound quality is enhanced, giving a noticeably better-controlled sound overall and great imaging," notes and April 2013 review in England's Hi-Fi Choice magazine.
Mat Materials Matter
The kind of turntable mat that you use can have a big influence on how your turntable sounds. A good phono cartridge is sensitive to the interaction between a vinyl record and the surface of your turntable platter.
Common felt mats provide a smooth contact between record and platter, but they have the disadvantage of holding static electricity, which attracts dust that can end up on our record and causes audible clicks and pops when you play your music. Their damping ability is very limited, which can cause a problem with resonant metal platters.
Thick rubber turntable mats actually over-damp the record. They can have an excessive isolation effect, which leaves the static on the record, again leading to clicks and pops.
The Leather-It Solution
Pro-Ject's Leather-It leather turntable mat upgrades the sound quality of your turntable. The leather material damps resonance more effectively than felt. Leather also helps keep dust away and it has enough contact with the record to suppress static electricity.
Leather-it is compatible with all turntables. You will definitely hear the improvement with Leather-It!
Choose black or gray leather.
