Overview

HIGH PERFORMANCE CORK MAT

Hear your music exactly as the musician intended. Made with A grade cork, the Fluance Cork Turntable Mat is the final touch for your record player to achieve a pure analog audio experience.

IMPROVES SOUND & PERFORMANCE

By allowing the vinyl record to remain isolated from unwanted platter micro-vibrations and noise, this cork mat enhances audio detail and improves mid and low bass performance for high fidelity playback. Especially recommended for metal platters.

LESSENS STATIC ELECTRICITY

The 0.12" (3mm) thick mat reduces static due to the insulating properties of cork material (requires turntable to be grounded).

ELEVATED VINYL EXPERIENCE

This cork mat is the perfect upgrade from a standard felt mat that has a limited ability to dampen, and prevent static and dust build-up on your records (requires turntable to be grounded).

COMPATIBLE WITH ALL TURNTABLES

Not only is this compatible with all Fluance turntables, you can also easily place this 3mm mat on all standard 12” turntable platters. The mat will conform to your turntable's spindle.

PERFECT CONTACT WITH RECESSED CENTER

Included in its design is a 0.5mm record label recess in the center allowing your vinyl records to lay perfectly flat and make full contact with the mat’s surface.

    Sound is nice, slight improvement over felt. The recessed middle for the record labels helps keep records flat. Lost one star because it is a two ply construction and one side the glue isn’t perfect and the two layers have separated a little.

    I didn't realize how fine-grained the cork on this was. It left cork dust all over the platter and of course the records. Unfortunately the product is not just useless but also harmful for the sound quality.

    The pad that came with my turntable kept sticking to the LP, this solved the problem. Well worth considering.

    My less that full-star review may be the result of me not doing my due diligence. I was under the impression that cork mats would be anti-stayic but I still had static cling on my records. The static is reduced but I've found myself cleaning records more than I'd like to due to the static. I bought a humidifier and that that made the biggest difference so, silly me on that one.Fluance makes great products and thus cork mst is easily a preferred replacement for any felt mat that might have come stock with your turntable. I DO recommend it, but don't expect a miracle.

    The felt mat kept coming off my record player when you picked up the records. Static-brush didn’t cure the issue. This may does!The cork platter fits on the spindle well, looks good and no more felt mat problems!

    It doesn't do much to prevent static, but the records don't stick to it like they did with the felt mat that came with my turntable.Definitely recommend.

    Perfectly fine mat. Nothing fancy. Unfortunately it actually *increased* static by quite a large margin over the stock rubber mat. Rather a wasted $20 for my purposes.

    Great mat, pared nicely with my Fluance rt 81, highly recommend.

    If you are listening to your records through headphones, a cork mat is just essential. After replacing the rubber mat with this, I noticed a significant decrease in noise and static. The $20 this costs makes it an absolute steal. The only thing that's better than this is the high density frosted platter, but that's an extra $100 (worth it imo, but maybe not to you). Either way, great upgrade.

    Since using this mat it has cut down on static and popping while playing records and also looks great on my RT83. A good price for a very well made cork mat that I would recommend to anyone.

    I originally purchased this to run on an Audio-Technica AT-LP60 before I upgraded to the Fluance RT83, which this now lives on.

    I found the cork mat to be a good upgrade over the felt one that was included with my AT-LP60. It definitely cut down on static cling and the vinyl sat nice and flat on the platter.

    I've not compared it to with the rubber mat that shipped with my RT83, but the cork mat is great on there as well. Looks handsome to boot.

    I'd recommend this to folks who are looking to extract some slightly different sound from well-listened vinyl, or just to replace an aging mat that's seen better days. Top quality, quick shipping, classic Fluance.
