Disk Stabiliser – Record Weight
Disk stabiliser as Audio-Technica call it is what we would call a record weight. Whatever the correct name is it is a great way to enhance ones turntable and add an extra dimension of bass solidarity when playing back your favourite tunes.
The stylus vibrates as it tracks your record grooves – this the first step of getting music from a record to your ears. Some of that vibration gets transferred to the record itself . When this happens, the stylus has a harder time accurately “reading” the grooves. Imagine trying to read a book when every word is moving. Coupling the record to the platter reduces this vibration, which results in cleaner playback and less distortion.
