Compared to most record player mats available, we find this mat gives by far the best results. The decoupling of the vinyl from the record player is very good. More quietness, more dynamics and more detail in the soundstage is the result. Available in 3mm. and 5 mm. thickness.

In the groove, the stylus accelerates at more than 20,000g – and this pile-drives vibrations into the disc. At a boundary change (from vinyl to felt/rubber/metal) these vibrations reflect, back and the stylus simply adds these new error signals to your music.

While you might think the record mat has only a “supporting” role, it is actually the ONLY tool we have to help us prevent these reflections, because it is the only other thing touching the disc near the stylus. Only the mat can absorb this unwanted reflected energy and keep it from the stylus. The mat’s role has just been elevated from “just a mat” to being critical.

It can only have the desired effect if correctly designed…if it mimics the disc’s characteristics. Static-free, Achromat has millions of tiny internal bubbles, whose walls flex, dissipating energy. Clever stuff. Compare it to Felt, Rubber, Metal, Glass, Carbon…. All are guilty of colouration – You can’t dodge physics!

    what a difference a Headshell makes, niet te geloven opoenheid ruimte definitie, ik ken mij platen niet meer. Samen met de achromat Fantastisch.

    Nog strakkere bas en meer details dan met mijn kurk/rubberen mat.

    Clear website, easy purchase and fast shipping. Funk Firm Anchromat make my Kef speakers sound even more direct. Satisfaction is all here.

    I have a Rega P3 with a Sumiko MC cartridge. With the FunkFirm Achromat the music becomes more fluid, details are more audible. You are pulled into the music. The differences with the original mat are subtle, but a nice step-up.

    Really nice mat. Thickness is ideal for my Thorens turntable.

    De levering nam veel tijd in beslag, Audio Creative Shop was daar niet de oorzaak van, zij hebben altijd goed gecommuniceerd. dus zou zeker vaker wat bij hen bestellen.

    Mijn schamele score zat in de FunkFirm Achromat Mat zelf. Op mijn Raga rp8 doet hij het niet goed, het standaard filten matje werkt veel beter. een groot verschil in geluid, maar het mid en met name het hoog krijgt te veel push wat ten koste gaan van natuurlijkheid en muzikaliteit. Het zal hem in de combi liggen met mijn RP8 maar ik zou de mat niet direct aanraden, zonder te kunnen luisteren hoe het in de specifieke set-up klinkt
