A low cost upgrade for your turntable, Paul Rigby wonders if adding it to the headshells of his turntables will improve sound quality

This little piece of flexible composite material sits in between your headshell and your cartridge.

The idea is that it reduces noise, vibration and acts as a sort of suspension system for your cartridge.


I tested it on two turntables at the extremity of the price point.

The theory being, if it worked well in both of those then everything in between should fall in to place.

See what you think.

    Hello Paul,

    I would have been nice to see you install it and test it on the vid.

    Best regards

      Hi Geoff – yes it would, that’s true. To be honest, right now, I don’t have the time to make videos like that but I hope to in the future. And I’ll be getting to that subject in the next month or two 🙂

    Yes it’s a lot of work for sure. Maybe some poctures in between like the Audiophilliac does?

    Just a suggestion.

    Best regards

      I’d rather do the video clips as well as the photos, Geoff. There are certain products, like this as you say, which would certainly benefit. Seeing me actually install it would be easier than several stills, I reckon. My problem is time. A third of my month is still committed to non-Audiophile Man stuff. This is the thing I need to change.
      Free up more time? Then I can develop more complex vids, more reviews and the rest. As I say, I’m looking to do something about that in the next month or two. More news soon.
