    I am very impressed with the additional information I am hearing with the mat, are you looking to sell it?

    My experiences with the AR Legend tt:

    (1) The now elderly Audioquest sorbothane mat completely eliminated platter ringing, but quashed dynamics a little. nevertheless it was an improvement on the original felt mat.

    (2) the Herbies "Way Excellent II" (great name) mat resulted in a sensational improvement and I thoroughly recommend it.

    I've been using some of David Brooks pressure points for a few weeks and I like them a lot. The instructions suggested using 8 around the circumference of the platter, but I found then I got a little bounce when the needle was lifted at the end of the record. So I've moved them to 5 around the circumference and 3 in the middle. Since I purchased mine I see they are now sold as part of a mat on the MCRU site, and I note that they are arranged in two concentric circles.
