In the 1980s, rubber, silicone, and cork all had proponents claiming to be the best at "damping", but how could they all be right? Obviously, no one had a clue.
Then Arthur Khoubesserian arrived. Forwarding a theory matching disc/platter impedance, he released the Pink Triangle with its naked acrylic platter. His (now logical) suggestion to sit a record directly on "hard" acrylic was nothing short of heresy, but the idea worked!
Today, survival of the fittest means acrylic platters are "de rigueur" in all high end turntables. Unfortunately for today's competition, and despite the benefits, acrylic's own limitations, as well as further innovations, have caught up with it. Its mechanic-acoustic impedance doesn't precisely match that of the record.
Now, The Funk Firm introduces the next stage in vinyl evolution: Achromat. Achromat's new material matches records 100 percent. It doesn't stop there. Achromat is further optimized by the introduction of bubbles, which gradually increase internal damping and reduce weight. The results you'll hear: more space and air, inky black backgrounds, layered timbral color, better midband resolution, and a more sonorous, deep bass.
