Yes I did. I actually ordered it today. Do not have tracking yet to find out when I will receive it. I’ll let you know when I get it. The rep said that it helps a lot with static and that it sounded good; I was not expecting any other response really but since you said it helped I’ll try it. I hate static and my apartment is fairly dry. Anything to reduce it. I would like to figure out a way to ground the Traveler platter as well. That is actually on my to do list.
I’ll let you guys know what I think of it.. Incidentally they only had 3 left in stock when I ordered mine.

I had this problem before in my TNT 2.5 and my TNT 6 w/c I upgraded to a Classic Aliuminum platter..It had so much static that there was a tendency to drop a record when there's a static discharge. This happened to both this turntable and the solution was to attach a ground wire from the bearing housing connecting it to the ground terminal of your phono preamp. This completely elimated the static problem. No need for a mat.There is a threaded hole at the bottom end of the shaft and its self explanatory how you will attach the ground wire either using an eye or spade connector. I don't like using mats in my vpi turntable.I had the HW19jr,the Mark 4 version, the TNT 2.5 and the TNT6. I've never use a mat.I'm wondering why the dealer or VPI did not suggest this solution.
