I really do prefer the standard felt Mats of both my Regas and my Linn.
Today I tested an Achromat by Funk on my Linn Axis with Akitoarm and Ortofon MC Vivo Blue, and lets just say it was not a good match. Voices was a little bit more forward ( to some a plus, to others not.) and everyting else was just plain bad.
Maybe I'll try on my Regas, but I don't Think it's worth the bother.
