Achromat is the natural progression from the original acrylic interface invented by Arthur Khoubesserian back in 1979. Refining the theory he subsequently launched Achromat in 2005. Ongoing refinements in composition and application means that Achromat is now more universal and better than ever.

In 2009 Achromat came top in a mat comparison in HiFi Choice and then went on to win the Gold Award for Accessory.

How it Works

The stylus accelerates at up to 20,000g. This means your groove wall is not so much caressed but more akin to being pummelled by a road hammer creating travelling shock waves.

When there is a material change, like the record sitting on a felt mat, say, these waves bounce back from the bottom of the record (a mere 2mm thick) and are sensed by the stylus.

We hear this as colouration.

Achromat is the ideal material to absorb energy from the record.

Try hard as you may, but physics tells there is no better material.

It is only 3mm thick, and this is where the science kicks in. 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.

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 bass intelligibility to be appreciated.

It has become the goto mat of choice for LP12, all Rega, and Technics turntables. With our money back guarantee what are you waiting for?

Available in black, green, yellow, blue, and red.

A“Customer Experience”

…”These two will make four mats and a platter from you! I am selling my last Mystic Mat on Ebay right now! I never thought that I would do that, but your Achromats are just so brilliant! They cost far less, too! I think that people that do not own one are missing out on something very special. Thank you for making the best Rega upgrades on the market. I have been able to push the Planar 3 to unthinkable levels of performance, thanks to you. As always, I appreciate your time and talents! Take Care!”
