Funk Firm Achromat Turntable Mat 3mm

(1 customer review)

Funk Firm’s Achromat is the ideal material to absorb resonant energy from the record.

No other mat is like it and all it takes is a simple A-B comparison to demonstrate the differences against other supports. Longer-term listening allows subtle nuances as well as greater accuracy in bass to be appreciated.

Millions of tiny bubbles within create complex pathways and that’s where the energy gets lost as heat. In this way, Achromat acts like a considerably thicker mat.


Recommended by our in-house audiophile as their must-have Vinyl Accessory.


  • Made of acrylic containing thousands of randomly sized bubbles that absorb energy and turn it into heat
  • Significantly reduces distortion by attenuating the back reflection from the platter to the stylus
  • Helps to damp the ringing of metal and glass platters as it is designed to be stuck to the platter
  • Results in a more 3D soundstage and better delineation between notes.
  • Anti-static, unlike the felt mats that come with turntables
  • Available in 3mm and 5mm sizes depending on ability to adjust VTA on the turntable

    I just wanted to say thanks to Nguyen Sa for his recommendation. Since I’ve put this mat onto my deck I can actually listen to records again and enjoy them. It’s caused me to clean a lot of my records and play them, which is a good thing! I’ll definitely be back in at some stage with my deck to purchase a new cartridge. Many thanks!
