The Platter Ground™ is unlike other record weights or clamps as this product improves sonic by mechanical grounding and transferring resonance from the surfaces of vinyl records, tonearms, phono cartridges, and platters to the vertical grounding plane of the turntable, commonly known as the spindle.
Research of turbulent energy patterns established on the vinyl record surface has opened doors to new mechanical grounding insight. It has been discovered that under constant centrifugal momentum, introduction of the Platter Ground caused resonant energies in such a structure to become neutralized (become laminar in fashion). As a result, the resultant force vector of detrimental energy (mechanical, electromechanical and airborne resonances) become purely “normal” (perpendicular) to the spindle, opening a direct pathway for unwanted outside energy to flow away from the table. This in effect expedites the mechanical grounding effect, thus removing (not damping) the resonant byproducts.
