Recommended for top load transports, and transports based on the Pioneer Stable Platter or Esoteric VRDS only.
This hand-made CD mat can be used over and over, virtually forever. Reduces grunge, glare, sibilance. Brings bass, tonal qualities and imaging into immaculate focus. Easy to use – just place it on your disc and play – lays flat and stays put without adhesive. Compatible with conventional drawer-loading and top-loading CD/SACD/DVD and Blu-ray players (not recommended for narrow slot-loaders, super-slim tray-loaders, or computer drives). To clean, rinse with tap water or dab gently with masking tape.
The science involved is simple and straightforward. Micro-vibrations in the CD's spin transfer through the player's clamping mechanism and spread to sensitive electronic parts like capacitors and op-amps, where vibration-induced distortions occur. By reducing these vibrations, the grungebuster Black CD Mat allows the player to provide a more realistic rendering of the originally recorded event.
Top Loaders & Stable Platters: For use with top-loaders that have a full-size stabilizing puck – just adhere the mat full-time to the puck. No need to apply a mat to individual discs. Also for stable platter and Rigid Disc (VRDS) mechanisms. Just place the mat full-time on the platter.
Made with unique carbon microfiber-filled elastomer. 4.25" diameter x .021" thick. Weight: 6 grams.
