Music Hall Mat

Overview

Our take on the Music Hall Mat

If you're using the standard felt or rubber platter mat that comes supplied with many turntables, try the Music Hall Mat instead. This thin, lightweight cork mat works with any turntable to deliver cleaner sound with less background noise than conventional mats, for greater detail and dimensionality. Its 12 isolation discs and single larger center disc help lift and support your records, decoupling them from the platter and reducing unwanted vibration. And unlike felt, cork provides more grip to reduce record slippage, and it fights dust-attracting static, so your records stay cleaner.

Music hall Cork Mat - The Final Solution

Written by: Bald Paul Audiophile from Norwalk, CT on June 30, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've been upgrading, tweaking and surgically working on my Turntable to sound perfect! Equipment = Music Hall 5.1se, Mojo Cartridge, Denon AVR-X5200W, Parasound 2125 x2 bridged, Bower & Wilkins CM10, Rels sub x3 + ( 11.2 satellite Atmos) Digital force gauge, protractor, Record cleaners, tried every setting recommended. Things sounded great right up until I punched it and BAM,distortion, rumble and loss of clarity. Movies are awesome, Flac files amazing. Analog yuk. I decided it must be the pre-amp. Purchased NAD pp2e & project Tube s shootout. The denon Built in was better than both for my taste. The NAD brought out vocals and project warmed things up but neither seemed to improve enough over the Denon or solve my problem. Expensive turntable, expensive cartridge, Bean bags isolated? what do I need to do?. I called Music hall and the president answered the phone like I had the bat line, I explained the situation and he said buy the Cork. That will do it. More money? Really? Yes Really!! I put on Pink Floyd, Cranked it up and I was in Analog Bliss. No tweaking, No need for EQ, Just sit back and get lost in the sound. I Crank it up and it sounded like I spent another couple thousand. Thank you Mr. President. Who knew Cork could improve the sound so much and solve every Problem. BUY IT. Even if you think it already sounds good. It Will Sound WAY Better! Maybe the other reviewers here aren't listening to Rock with 400 watts per. Thats where the cork shines

Pros: Total Sonic Solution, Better Tone, Wider-Warmer sound, More Punch, Higher Volumes. Total final tweak solution

Cons: Best Kept Secret,

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this to replace the stock mat on my Denon DP-300F. The main benefit I have noticed is an elimination of static charge on my vinyl. To me it is worth having for this alone.

Pros:

Cons: seems thin and fragile, a little pricey for what you get. Since I bought this one I have found different ones on the market that look to be more beefy, and I will probably go with something different if I ever need another

could not tell a lot of difference, but for the money, a good move to improve the sound coming thru my Denon player

Pros: good buy

Cons: none

Much Ado About Nothing.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's a turntable mat, nothing more and nothing less. it holds the record from slipping and it is Slightly less susceptible to collecting static charges than the factory rubber mat, but not by much. Way too expensive for what it delivers.

Pros: It's a good mat if you need a replacement mat.

Cons: Far too expensive for what you get in return for your money.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a good mat that definitely improved the low end. Unfortunately I don't believe it's worth the money.

Pros: Quality material. Improves low end of music. Thin mat that doesn't affect the height adjustment of the tonearm.

Cons: Overpriced.
