Yes, just one, the Extreme Phono non felt mat, the old discontinued one.

I experimented with many mats over the years and it was tie in sound quality between plain felt and the Extreme Phono non felt mat.

Actually the felt had a slight edge in sound quality, but the non felt mat was much more convenient...doesn't collect dust or stick to the records. I have been using it exclusively for the last 15 years, after using the felt for 25 years.

Maybe I'll find something I like better in 10 more years. :D
Original 1978 Fluted Afromosia LP12, Ekos 2, Lyra Kleos SL and lots of other stuff from the 70's that still work fine.

The Birds eye maple plinth made by Limm a Canadian company. My photo doesn't show the good looks of the birds eye maple.

Apologies my mistake I thought it was a typo I've never heard of limm the only exotic curly maple plinths I've seen have been Chris Harban ones " though not in the flesh " some of the pictures of the flat front look almost three dimensional beautiful when the light hits it right.
