Boost the sound of your Elemental or Essential with the Acryl It E!
The Acryl It E is made from acrylic and features a satin finished surface. It's super easy to upgrade - Just exchange your pre-existing platter for the Acryl It E. Unlike many platters, where you will need to place a felt met between record and platter to damp resonance, you can put your record directly on the acrylic surface, with nothing in-between. Any unwanted vibrations in your record are transferred to the platter where they dissipate. Very smart!
The ProJect Acryl-It platter reduces dust and static to an absolute minimum. By nature acrylic is lighter and has properties similar to vinyl. The acrylic platter uses no mat so the vinyl will couple directly to the platter.Placing the lp on the platter without a mat will not scratch or do harm and you can leave the platter spinning while changing lps.
There are sonic qualities to the Acryl-It platter. The noise floor is dramatically lower and bass articulation is greatly improved. You can follow individual bass notes much more easily than before, and the music comes from an almost silent background.The acrylic platter is a worthwhile addition to a already good deck and you'll hear more into the music. There are non-sonic improvements, as well. No more static pops from lifting the record off that lousy felt mat.
To get an even better improvement out off the acrylic platter you can use a ProJect Clamp-It record clamp. This will sandwich the record to the platter.
