Platter matter

UK Turntable specialist Origin Live has launched its new Strata platter mat.

Billed as a universal upgrade for any turntables, the Strata is composed of three distinct materials joined together using a specialised flexible bonding technique, to dissipate vibration.

While, says the company, single material designs only operate within specific bands of vibration, multi-layer designs can operate across a wider spectrum. The Strata’s materials are based on trickle-down tech that was first developed for the company’s flagship Voyager turntable’s Multi-Layer Platter.

Available in black finish with a 4.5mm thickness and £295 price tag, find out more at Origin Live.
