Product Description

Collaro Red Turntable Mat

Designed as a direct replacement for the supplied platter mat of many high quality turntables, this mat is the result of many years of research and is a felt and cloth sandwich construction of uniform thickness. It provides a precise support of the record on the platter whilst protecting the groove from damage that can be sustained using a hard surface such as glass or metal.
If replacing a thick rubber or felt mat, the stylus VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle) may need adjustment. If used with a Linn turntable, the process of ‘clocking’ the platter may be beneficial. Please see these articles about Adjusting the VTA and Clocking the Platter on Linn LP 12s by clicking the links.

The mat may be used either side uppermost with identical results.

Each mat comes packaged in a presentation protective sleeve and makes an ideal gift for any vinyl hi-fi enthusiast.

You can be sure that the mat will provide years of enhanced listening pleasure for anyone with a Linn, Rega, Pink Triangle, Funk Firm, Pro-Ject, Clearaudio or Roksan turntable. Or, if you or someone you know owns a classic turntable, perhaps manufactured by Ariston, Walker, Manticore, Systemdek, Lenco, Luxman, Micro or Garrard, then the Collaro Audio Precision Turntable Mat will also provide an enhanced acoustic experience.

Collaro red mat

by Clive Courbet, August 8, 2020

I too got one of these before 'lockdown' and am very pleased with it- better than my original Linn mat and the susequent Roksan one I had.

Collaro Magic!!

I ,before the enforced isolation bought the red ( linn) mat & the Cream “ Transcription mat for use on an ancient but cherised Denon DP30 ( forgive my heresy it’s mainly used for aged Deccas,DGs and 45 s) Both mats are magnificent timing resolution and depth have on both decks improved greatly, the direct drive “ cogging “ effect on the Denon has been diminished to such extent on piano ? music that I would put it up against aBrinkmann.Its that good. The Linn has always been wonderful with Orchestral music and big band Jazz now it’s even better I would twice the price for these mats Unconditionally Recommended
