Mobile Fidelity Super HeavyWeight

Crutchfield customer from Woodbury, CT on 12/10/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks great, and makes a noticeable difference in slight warps. May not be necessary on higher end turntables that are already well dampened or quiet, but does help a significant amount on more modest decks. If you are already happy with a preamp and stylus, this is a logical next step, but get those other things right first.

Pros: Appearance, build quality

Cons: Price

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good product to dampen & hold vinyl more securely. weight is not a problem for potential cause of excessive wear on motor/belt.

Pros: Very good to hold vinyl to platter & dampen unwanted vibrations. Weight not seen as a motor & belt wear issue.

Cons: Pricey

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My music hall 5.3 came with a screw on record weight. Although I am a skeptic with regards to such accessories, upon a friend's recommendation (insistence) , I ordered the MoFi. The difference was not the least subtle. The bass was cleaner and fuller, treble less shrill, the overall sound fuller or more complete. To draw an analogy, before the MoFi the sound was like a circle lightly and incompletely filled in; with the MoFi, the circle was completely filled in with more saturation. I am not sure why or how this works, but suspect it has to do not only with the weight per se perhaps "flattening" the record but also the "gel" contained within the weight dampening any vibrations. Just to make sure I did not experience purchase bias, I had a friend visit allegedly to listen to a new album. Unknown to him, I played the lp with the music hall and then the MoFi weight-- he didn't know what I had done -- he immediately asked me what had improve the sound, commenting that whatever it was, it certainly was not a subtle difference. He wants one now. Besides the sound, it is a true pleasure not to have to screw down the weight (as was the case with the music hall supplied weight).

Pros: truly improves the sound its "slip on" mechanism beats screw down weights

Cons: none so far (although in a way, the price is high for a low tech device).

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Mofi Super Heavy Weight not only feels well built, but fits snugly on the spindle. I previously was using a cheap weight and I was skeptical that a far more expensive weight would make a difference,but boy was I wrong! Bass is tighter and more articulate and there is more shimmer on the highs and it looks great to boot.

Pros: Definitely performs as Mofi advertised!

Cons: None

Features

Super HeavyWeight: The Super HeavyWeight was designed with the assistance of MoFi Electronics' good friend, Mike Latvis, of Harmonic Resolution Systems (HRS). The device uses Latvis' proprietary polymer material, renowned for its exceptional noise-absorption characteristics. In addition to coupling the record to the platter, Super HeavyWeight significantly reduces noise - specifically, record groove, motor, and bearing noise. Listeners will hear more music due to resultant blacker backgrounds, increased inner detail, improved clarity, enhanced micro-dynamics, and greater bass impact.

  • Construction: The outer-shell is comprised of billet-machined 6061 aluminum for an easy grip. The underside is made from a soft polymer that ensure damage-free operation with LPs.
  • Weight: The Super HeavyWeight weighs in at 364 grams. This is the optimum weight with respect to applying no strain or stress to a turntable's motor, bearing, or suspension.
  • Dimensions: MoFi's Super HeavyWeight measures 3.0625" (diameter) x 1.375" (height).
