Put a cork on it for better sound
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.
