Vinyl sound can be significantly improved when unwanted resonances between the record and platter can be reduced during playback. Accordingly, the surfaces of the record and platter should mate solidly. Standard record pucks use weight to achieve this, but have two disadvantages:
1) The added weight can actually induce higher levels of main bearing rumble on lower-cost turntables that typically have less massive bearings,
2) Instead of tightening the records surface to the platter, heavy weight record pucks can cause the opposite: Vinyl will get shaped like a bowl with no contact of the outer edges of the record to the platter.
Both scenarios will negatively affect playback. The Clamp It provide a real solution to the above problems by clamping around the center spindle without adding excessive weight.
You can also fine-tune clamping pressure depending on the condition of your warped records and can be installed within seconds. This accessory will not only please your ears, it will please your eyes as well – it is beautifully machined and will look great on any turntable!
