Nothing to add other that has already been said.Yannis S. 5
Static is eliminated a lot. There are some believers on Audioholics that claim that the whole acrylic platter is a joke. Too sad to hear so poor statements.
I’m very happy with the acrylic platter, I don’t know though if I need to readjust the cartridge.
I bought an RT84 about two months ago. It sounded great, but I noticed a lot of static, both from some excess clicks and pops and pretty substantial cling when removing records from the platter. About a quarter of the time, the rubber mat would come off with the record.Ben K. 5
The acrylic platter eliminates the static almost completely. It also improves the overall soundstage quite a bit, especially the character and clarity of the bass.
If I had to do it again, I'd buy an RT85 off the bat. But if you have an RT84 or below, spring for this when you can. It's well worth it.
Upgraded an Rt83 with this platter. Sound quality improved. It appears 'cleaner'.Hedley D 5
I exclusively listen to records through headphones because I don't have space for speakers right now. This killed a lot of the small sounds and fuzziness encountered during playback so things sound way better and clearer. I barely even have to use my brushes anymore.Kenneth 5
Is bass better? Sure, but stereo imaging greatly improves, as does the reduction of noise. It doesn't hurt that the platter looks simply amazing on the walnut table. Easy install....maybe 5 min. Without reading instructions....Don't wait. Buy it!Jason, A 5
I bought this as an upgrade to my Fluance RT 83 turntable. It did not disappoint! I was expecting better bass, and more detail, however, I noticed greater stereo imaging.Kenneth 5
I love the look of this very simple upgrade. The acrylic platter adds an extra touch of class Plus the sonic benefit is is the perfect compliment to my RT82 turntableMark D. 5
This is a very easy upgrade and does absolutely make a positive audible difference compared to the standard aluminum platter and mat. Unlike the aluminum set-up, with the new acrylic platter there is almost zero transmission of sound when you set the dust cover down gently or lightly contact the plinth. I used to get a soft "thump" through the speakers but no more! Static clicks and pops are essentially eliminated with the acrylic as well - can't do anything about the scratches of course... The acrylic is great as no mat is needed and the record stays in direct contact with the platter and the added weight just makes the whole system seem more stable. I would say this is a very worthwhile upgrade after the cartridge and stylus which are probably the best bang for the buck. I would like to see the acrylic platter a bit less expensive (and more available to upgrade - i waited 6 months to get one) but the quality is top notch and well worth the wait.Greg 5
Easy installation. Immediately noticed both a visual and sonic improvement. Buy it if you can get one...David 5
