Functional and easy to use sound improvement!
Vinyl sound can be significantly improved, when unwanted resonances between record and platter can be reduced, while playback. Therefore surfaces of record and platter should connect tigthly. Standard record pucks, that use weight to achieve this, have two disadvantages:
1) The weight can induce higher levels of rumble, when used with lower cost turntables which have less massive main bearings. This will affect the sound negatively.
2) Instead of the desired closer contact between your vinyl and turntable is often achieved the opposite: Due to the high weight in the middle of the plate arching the record and the edge loses contact with the turntable.
Clamp it is the real solution, an accessory with a clamp mechanism around the center spindle, that will not add weight, which would induce rumble. You can fine-adjust pressure according condition of your warped records. Fitting of Clamp it is easily done within seconds. This accessory will not only please your ears, its beautifully machined diamond-cut edges will also look extremely cool on any turntable!

Intriguing change in sound
• Applying the Clamp-it offers an intriguing change in sound.
• The clamp imposes a sense of discipline on certain areas of the sound.
• The brass sounded more focused – and provided a greater amount of detail.
•The drum tracks had a leaner and sharper punch.
“The improvement in performance is considerable“
• I’ve never used a Debut with any form of clamp up to now, but a few minutes listening to the Carbon Evo with it fitted is enough to convince me that this is something that should be on any owner’s to-do list.
• With it fitted, there is an appreciable and immediate improvement in fine detail and clarity. Even on a perfectly flat record, the Clamp IT demonstrates an immediate and tangible benefit.
• Even with the standard metal platter it has a beneficial effect, but combining it with the acrylic upgrade unit and clamp is more effective still.
• The way the upgraded turntable handles music is more spacious, detailed and effortless than the stock deck is able to manage.[pdf]
