Here is one of the greatest audio upgrades
you will ever find for your LINN!
If you own a Linn turntable, then you really
need to hear what this can do for your sound!
This simple addition to your turntable will radically enhance the quality of your listening experience… it has been scientifically designed and tested for optimal performance, and the results really show in the sonics!
Later in this listing we will show you rigorous scientific measurements for it, but the real proof is in the added pleasure this will bring to your listening experience!
“All I can say is it was awesome, besides the better lower end the sound seemed much more alive. I just don’t know how to explain it, more detail, more lower end & more life – I’m well happy.”
George S.- British Ex-pat in the Philippines
Q: What could be better than a Linn for great sound quality and reproduction?
A: A Linn outfitted with a Vibro-Stop Platter Mat of course!
If you have a Linn turntable and want to get the best sound quality from it, this inexpensive add-on really performs! We confidently claim to have one of the very best platter mats on the market, and if you look at our Science section, we’ll prove it!
Why do we say this? Because VSPM delivers!
♫ – Improves the sound so much, even inexperienced listeners can tell the difference. From a real testimonial:
“My wife doesn’t really know much about audio,
but she readily heard and loved the difference
in quality after installing your platter mat.”
♫ – Unlike most of our competitors we provide scientific measurements to back up our claims…
♫ – It is incredibly easy to use (only seconds and you’re good to go!)
♫ – Saves thousands! …. instead of buying more expensive turntable models costing you £1000’s, you can have the equivalent in sound quality for a fraction of the price. Yes, seriously.
♫ – Works really, really well with almost any model or brand of turntable.
♫ – This glossy black mat radically improves the appearance of most turntables – it is surprising to see how much better most ‘tables look with the VSPM
♫ – Sonically this platter mat improves everything: better lows, tremendous heft, slam and impact, mids and highs, much more dynamic contrast, much deeper wider and holographic imaging, much more retrieval of inner detail. It helps bring nearly any “good mid-fi” turntable to a level that competes strongly with much more expensive Audiophile decks…And it takes many Audiophile tables into the super-deck ranges! Again, yes, seriously!
Vibro-Stop vs. Rega Felt Mat
or Rega Glass Platter
The Vibro-Stop Platter Mat clearly outperforms both the Rega Glass platter, and the Rega supplied Felt mat + Glass Platter. The green Vibro-stop line shows up to 25-30dB improvement over the Rega supplied felt mat, as well as a substantial improvement over the naked glass mat. These measurements clearly show the outstanding resonance suppression properties of the Vibro-Stop Platter Mat.
Results on the Linn range of ‘tables measures similar or better to the Rega.
Here’s why: regardless of the platter material, felt mats measure very poorly and with quite peaky frequency response. It’s true felt mats isolate the LP somewhat from the platter, but that comes at significantly BAD effect on the sonics. LP’s placed on felt mats measure nearly as poorly as an un-supported LP regardless of the platter material! This allows the LP resonances to continue with almost no damping.
With all due respect to those that advocate felt for platter mats, we can only say they are wrong to do so!
In contrast, the Vibro-Stop platter mats not only provide much superior frequency response at the LP surface, they also significantly reduce the inherent bell modes and ringing found in metal platters, especially the two-part types like the Linn. The platter+mat becomes much better behaved in all respects, with huge sonic benefits.
Here are some testimonials from our eBay feedback:
“I cannot over state how great of a deal this was. Thank you! Awesome product!”
“Great product. Does even more than the seller says. A great tweak.”
“Extremely pleased. Improved detail, imaging, bass, and frequency response. A++++”
“Best t.t. I’ve ever had. Great seller, great packing, A+++seller, answered e-mails.”
Simply put, this is a very, very BIG upgrade in sonics and usability for both Audiophiles and DJ’s.
