The Linn felt mat.
Make sure you use the best sounding side.

Personally I use:

Never found any one who demonstrated to me that the Linn Matt was "sided" but then again I do have cloth ears.

Another HoL mat here. Modest improvement over my Linn mat, and yes, I did try a brand new Linn mat as well.

Purely for chat no dig intended.
Did you try both sides and what's more did anyone try both sides of the HOL mat or do you just put it on the way they say maybe pre sided before you buy to suit your ears. 8) :smt023

No, I've always used it blue triangle up.

I have used both sides of a new(ish) LINN mat before getting the HoL. HoL wins
