What People Say About our LP Mats...

                                - Michael Fremer
     Stereophile Magazine (October 2009)

"...I prefer the more neutral - yet still rich and visceral - sound with the Mat 1."
                           - SoundStage!
"...the Mat 1 is the best and most efficacious audio accessory I have ever found."
                           - Positive Feedback
"It should be clear that we're quite blown away by Austin Jackson's deceptively simple device..."
"Yumpin' yimminie this thing works! It was exactly what I felt was needed. Everything came into precise focus; the overall harmonics were smoother and more cohesive too!"
                           - Steven R. Rochlin
 Clearaudio Ambient Turntable Review

"It took only seconds to realize something special had happened... the Mat 1 was instantly superior."
                           - Enjoy The Music

" owe it to yourself to audition the Mat 1. Be prepared, however ó you may find that you canít listen without it."

What People Say About TuneBlocks...

"...the tonal richness of the music eclipsed the previous standard set by the combination of Stillpoints on a Symposium Acoustics Svelte Shelf."

"I highly recommend you give them a try."
                          - Positive Feedback

"They were audibly superior to the previous feet, adding a general clarity and better soundstaging that made the Sony player [$299] - when playing an identical multichannel SACD to one in the $2200 more expensive Integra player - sound nearly identical."
                          - Audiophile Audition
                            Read the Review

"...I decided to try the Tuneblocks under the Oracle. Since the Oracle is a spring-suspended design I didn't expect a big difference in sound quality. Holy Moly!!! The single biggest improvement to any piece of gear I've ever heard in over 46 years of audio experience.
                             - John Zermani

"I can't tell you how many different devices and methods of isolation and/or coupling I've experimented with over the years...but the TuneBlocks are the most effective tweak I've tried. They extend the performance enhancements provided by the Mat 1 to other components and to my ear expand on the benefits."
                             - Ray Shepeherd
