We firmly believe that Collaro Audio turntable mats are the finest fabric mats available on the market. As well as using the highest quality and consistent materials, we conduct lengthy listening tests to determine how our mats perform in the real world, and which mats suit which turntables best.
The Precision Cloth Mat was developed with Linn and Rega decks in mind, but can be used with a wide range of decks. As a rule of thumb we think that for belt-drive turntables, the Collaro Precision Cloth Mat
should be used, and for idler drive turntables, the Tempest Mat
is more suitable. Exceptions that we have found are as follows, and the list will be amended as we try out more turntables and get more feedback from Mat Users.
Of course we welcome experimentation and reports from our users. We're always delighted to hear from you, and there is a Facebook Group for those keen on Social Media in which you may share your findings. Search for “Collaro Audio Users” or click the link.
