THE AZTEC BLUE MAT REDUCES NOISE AND LETS THE MUSIC FLOW.
Set the music free with the aztec blue mat.
Instruments spring to life. Vocals are stunningly clear. Background noise is squashed, and the soundstage opens up.
How does this work? The secret is the unique design of the mat. 3 distinct layers of cork work in concert to decouple the record from the platter and isolate it from vibration. The large bottom layer grips the platter, providing a perfect non-resonant base for the upper spoke-style layer that lifts and separates eight isolation platforms. A single cork center that supports the record label and the isolation platforms around the outer edge of the mat decouple and float the record above the platter. Stylus tracking is improved and record wear reduced.

Cork is the perfect material.
It sucks up unwanted vibrations and releases the life and energy of the music. It’s naturally non-static and non-adhesive, making the mat perfectly safe for use on all platters, and it won’t harm your records. Cork grips the record better than felt, reducing record slippage keeping the music pitch perfect. The mat is thin, lightweight, and generally doesn’t require a VTA adjustment.

Music Hall’s Aztec Blue Cork record is an upgrade to their popular Cork mat with enhanced decoupling cork material and improved dual layer design. Aside from looking cool, these cork mats actually improve the sound of your favorite records, as well as lower record wear and improves stylus tracking. How does a slipmat do all this?
The secret is in the unique design. The outer pieces of cork that surround the outside of the mat lift and support the record while floating it above and decoupling it from the platter. This lowers record vibration and reduces acoustic feedback. Stylus tracking is improved and record wear reduced. The mat eliminates the grunge and leaves behind a rich, clear, dynamic sound. In addition, the cork material sucks up unwanted vibrations and is naturally non-static and non-adhesive making it completely safe for all platter types and all records. Cork also grips the record better than the usual felt-type materials so there is less record slippage and fewer timing errors. This thin, lightweight mat is an excellent upgrade for all listening turntable setups (but NOT for DJing or backcueing).
