Listener's Comments

"This product does something special for sound quality and quite frankly we do not totally understand how it works other than improving the sound of every piece of vinyl on every turntable in our inventory. I believe the size, shape and weight distribution is the key, but I leave it to the experts at Star Sound based on the incredible performance of their other products.

Every customer who purchased one loves it!

Another breakthrough product for the Star Sound guys"

Applications:

The Platter Ground™ by Star Sound Technologies, LLC

Turntable weights and clamps address warping and vinyl record movement.

Unlike weights or clamps, this device approaches the improvement of record sonic performance by transferring resonance and airborne energy at high speed from the vinyl record, tonearm, phono cartridge, and platter to the turntable grounding pole, commonly known as the spindle.

Extraneous energy generated by mechanical, electromechanical and, more importantly airborne resonance, directly affect the tonearm, record and cartridge performance. Amplitudes of this resonance cycle through the turntable structure, the release of which is impeded by friction within the contact of materials (per Coulomb's law).

Research of turbulent energy patterns established on the vinyl record itself has opened doors of new mechanical grounding insight never anticipated by Star Sound product developers. It has been discovered that under constant centrifugal momentum, introduction of the Platter Ground™ caused resonant energies in such a structure to become neutralized (become laminar in fashion). As a result, the resultant force vector of detrimental energy (mechanical, electromechanical and airborne resonances) become purely "normal" (perpendicular) to the spindle, opening a direct pathway for unwanted outside energy to flow away from the table. This in effect expedites the mechanical grounding effect, thus removing (not damping) the resonant byproducts.

These are the opinions of SST engineers. We have no research data currently available to confirm our theorems however, the product has yielded highly audible improvement in performance in our blind A/B testing for 100% of the test subject listeners.

These discoveries open new doors for turntable knowledge, design and function for all of audio. The results will improve turntable performance and design principles for years to come improving the sound of vinyl that touches the soul of all listeners.

Additional Benefits:

Answers to Product Operational Concerns: The Platter Ground will not tip over and does not wobble about on the record. It is engineered and balanced for maintaining stability in motion and weighs 0.6 pounds (269 grams). As one can plainly see, this device weighs much less than the average record clamp. We have zero complaints from listeners whereas the Platter Ground has fallen over, damaged any vynal or ruined any motor drives.
