    Hello mate! The deck is pretty much finished now I occasionally scan lenco heaven for ideas and new pieces of kit. The lenco isn't quite as detailed as my other decks but it is so much fun and I think I've spun more vinyl on the Lenco than the 1210 over the last two months! I've still a few ideas that I could implement but it would mean a complete rebuild and design paradigm.

    Tonights Update - The Reference Lenco Pt XXXXXVIII - Cork blimey! Or more buggering about with mats........

    My current mat configuration is the "gimp" mat bought from eBay and an original Garrard 301 mat and this combo has seen my through
    for quite some time. I have tried many costly (Tenuto gun metal platter mat and Crystal glass mat) and many cheap options (cork,
    felt) and quite a few others alongside numerous combinations of all of the above. I decided to try 4mm cork and the Garrard mat
    and also a trial of the "gimp" mat and the 4mm cork mat. I have used these in various combinations and I'm happy to say that I have
    found a combination which wins hands down compared to the various combinations and experimentations that I've tried. I've settled
    upon 4mm cork as a base mat and then the Garrard 301 mat sitting on top. I've had a few hours listening and I think that this combo
    is the best to date.

    Listening to Van Halen 1984 with a "gimp" + cork mat combo was a very anaemic affair the soundstage went very lean and the
    guitar of Eddie Van Halen went very lean and etched, no detail. The soundstage seemed to recess and in general whilst it was OK for
    four minutes I can't say that I'd have wanted to continue for much longer. Moving back to the familar Gimp+Garrard combo restored my
    old Lenco soundstage (Phew)! Now trialling Cork+Garrard and things went up another level. Alex Van Halens cymbals had more shimmer
    the bass suddenly became fuller and more tuneful and delivered more harmonic insight. This combination seems to major in bringing
    more detail to the fore of the soundstage. A second experiment listening to the Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner with three different
    mat combo's brought some interesting results, suffice to say that the cork+garrard mat combo again trumped all combos.
    Again detail and a fuller soundstage seemed to be the main benefits of this combo.

    Surface noise appears to be a tad reduced which is always a bonus. I just happen to have a cork mat kicking around in my spares box
    but they can be purchased for <7 from eBay. The Garrard mat can also be purchased from eBay, just do a search for Garrard 301. I
    wonder if the new Garrard mats are made from the same compounds as the original Garrard mats and consequently wonder if they would
    produce the same results so try and buy NOS or an original mat if you can. The cork mat has lifted the Lenco a little higher up the
    sonic ladder and I can honestly say that it's been one of those tweeks that has brought quite a marked improvement for virtually
    peanuts money.

    As always, stay tuned.

    Hi Andy , Recently purchased a reso mat on ebay and really pleased with results so far on my 75 with mayware / decca combo ( have you tried it ?)
    Also do you think 2 mats is generally better than 1 ?. Lastly are you see doing the 5 mile, or was it 10 everyday.best wishes

    Brian, I've had the resomat befor and yes it worked well on my 1210 but it got replaced with a crystal mat. Now, with respects to your questions. I usually stick with one mat as I find VTA problems can sometimes arise which means faffing about with the vertical height of the tonearm. You may also have problems with the two mats not sitting correctly on top of each other, so a record might be needed. It's hard to give honest advice but after messing around with platter mats for quite some time I've come to the conclusions that on my 75 two mats seems to work better than one. But I think it's fun experimenting. Finally, yep the five mile walk is still a daily occurrence.
