I picked up a new Ringmat 330 XLR today from Sevenoaks Hifi in Camberely today (next to the excellent record shop 'The Rock Box'.
They're clearing out loads of old shock and there's literally piles of old cables and stuff around. Tried to buy some Chord speaker cable but they wanted a bit of money..
Anyway they had an Ringmat 330 XLR Mk II (sounds impressive, eh?). Basically looks like 9 1/2 inch piece of rice paper with some cork rings on it. I remember that it's supposed to be good, but has anybody had any success with one? I haven't tried it yet.
Paid £2.00 for it so nothing lost if it's no use. On an Ariston RD80 which normally has a rubber mat.
Here's some pictures (not mine).
