Message: I have a Kenwood KD-5070. I measured 3.7 mm thick, but about 290 mmm diameter on the existing mat and 6.35 mm diameter of the spindle hole. I don't see those dimensions in your specs. Can recommend a size for me?
Thanks much!

Webmaster's reply: You can order any Way Excellent II-3.7mm Turntable Mat and mention in the "comments" section of the order form that you want 290mm diameter. The standard spindle hole is appropriate.

Message: I own a Denon DP-1000 turntable which has a platter with a raised area near the spindle. In other words, I cannot use a flat mat on this turntable, as most of the record will sit off of the mat. Do you have a mat that would have the proper inset on the back side to fit this type of Denon platter? (I have pictures if you need them.)

Webmaster's reply: Just order a Way Excellent II-3.7mm or 4mm Turntable Mat with custom center hole the same diameter or slightly larger than the raised area near the spindle.

Message: Which mat thickness and diameter would work best on my Sony PS- LX 350H with a grado Z+ Cartridge also I've been using a Mitchell clamp. Do I need to couple or decouple considering the aluminum platter I have.

Webmaster's reply: A 285mm-diameter Way Excellent II-4mm Turntable Mat. Decoupling/isolating the vinyl from the platter is best with aluminum platters which tend to be prone to resonances and ringing. You shouldn't need to use a Michell Record Clamp but can use it if you like.

Message: My Herbie's mat on my AR-XA feels dirty,
like it has picked up small dirt from
records over the months of use...How do I clean it?

Webmaster's reply: Here's a copy/paste from the information sheet that comes with every Herbie's mat: "To clean the mat, just dab the surface gently from time to time with a piece of masking tape to pick up any lint or dust. The mat can also be wiped gently with a paper towel or cloth lightly moistened with water or window cleaner."

Message: What would be best for a Thorens TD 115 and a Thorens TD 160? Also, which is the overall better turntable? Thanks!
Herbie's reply: Way Excellent II-4mm Turntable Mat works very well for both. It's not for us to judge which is the better turntable, but the TD 160 has been much more popular and highly regarded over the years.

Message: 1. How is SuperSonic Record Stabilizer better then any other stablizer around 150 gram? Does it work better or maybe it just works the same, being 3 times cheaper... :)
I see it is definitely broader then others (like Denon vintage stablizers).

2. What is fluorocarbon - is it some kind of plastic? I checked web, yet there was no definite anwser for how does it work. Does it seem to feel more coal or plastic like?

Please respond. BR, Maciek, Poland

Webmaster's reply: SuperSonic Record Stabilizer is formulated specifically to complement the Way Excellent II Turntable Mat on suspended-platter turntables, where it will almost always do a better job sonically than virtually any other kind of stabilizer, weight, or clamp. On other kinds of mats and/or tables, comparative results between SuperSonic Stabilizer and other kinds of stabilizers will vary from one system to another.

Fluorocarbons are polymers of which the Teflon© family of plastics is a member. SuperSonic Stabilizer is a blend of several kinds of materials and feels neither plastic-like nor like coal or metal. It has a unique feel to it, somewhat undescribable but maybe sort of like a hard metallic clay.
