Lab Overview

  • distortion reducing turntable platter made of a special absorptive polymer; fits on top of your turntable's platter
  • standard 5mm version is designed to work with any turntable with VTA / tonearm height adjustment
  • recommended for Technics SL-1500c models
  • Achromat’s polymer construction contains millions of randomly sized bubbles that absorb energy and turn it into heat
  • helps to damp the ringing of metal and glass platters as it is designed to be stuck to the platter
  • much more effective anti-static design compared to traditional felt slip mats
  • HiFi Choice Gold Award for Accessory
  • imported from the UK

"Achromat is the natural progression from the original acrylic interface invented by Arthur Khoubesserian back in 1979. Ongoing refinements in composition and application means that Achromat is now more universal and better than ever. Achromat is the ideal material to absorb energy from the record. There is no better. But it is only 5mm thick and this is where the science kicks in. Millions of tiny bubbles within create complex pathways and that’s where the energy gets lost as heat." - Funk Firm
