Just been asked what I would like for Xmas by my MUM she wonts to get it all done early with all the things going on with the virus ( bless her )
I have a leather one by Pro-j, but have been thinking of replacing it but don't know what to go for. there are a lot of them out there and made of all different materials, and claiming they do this that and the other. I got this one I have now for It's anti static and claim that It's good for bright sounding carts. It did what I got It for vary well. any thoughts out there ??

I like my 5mm Achromat, although I have not tried too many others. 
I believe the 5mm version is being discontinued soon, so I am almost tempted to buy a spare.

Having used The Origin Live mat on my OL 'table for a few years, I thought I'd give a try to one of the leather Sonic Voice mats that are available through John Cadman. A very worthwhile upgrade at a reasonable price. Maybe try one from their range?

Also consider the Ringmat Anniversary. Been using one for years on slippy acrylic platter
with good results.

Another vote for the Acromat. Although I like to ring the changes - currently on my 301 is the stock rubber mat topped by a thin suede leather one.

I had an Achromat on my SL1210 and was impressed. I sold it on when I got an Oyaide mat. Also had an Origin Live mat which did a really good job IMO.

I was thinking of the Origin Live mat but I will have a look at the other suggest too. It can't be too thick, the one I have now I have had to adjust the lid on my turntable as it was hitting the tonearm weight when closed, I know it's a small thing but it's nice to have every thing covered up when not in use.
By the way my platter is acrylic.
