Q: I bought a 1-year-old P1 which came with the wool mat. This is my first turntable in 30 years. (when I bought all my vinyl I lived with a flatmate who had a Linn deck, so never bothered and then CDs came along...)... so was surprised how 'woolly' the mat is... read lots etc and I know it's ok, understand the softening effects... should I buy a cork/rubber mat, or just stick with it? looking for people experienced with the P1 (It has the RB110 arm with the Carbon cartridge)

so thanks for all the advice... I went for and tried an acrylic mat.... and it's brilliant. dust and static reduced enormously. sound quality is sharper and richer. Also bought a 'weight' which is a ****** to centralise.. but the combination is fantastic. added 10% at least improvement to the sound quality (purely my perception!!!) but then I have tinnitus is one ear :)
