Funk Firm Achroplat Turntable Platter
How does it work?
The most significant thing to realize about analogue is that any information lost is lost forever; you can NEVER get it back. 
Just how easy it is to lose information? Well, the wiggles in the groove are actually smaller than the wavelength of light. Diamond stylii are more sensitive than lasers which are clumsy. It’s that easy. So tracing a groove with a laser, you’ve already lost precious information.

The term “Groove Grinder” is really quite apt. As the stylus traces the groove, it is accelerating at up to 20,000g. Clearly these are massive pressures pummelling into the vinyl. 
Retrieving the signal is a really delicate task. 
The platter is only a couple of millimetres below the stylus and must be considered part of the loop for vibrations travelling away from the record. Its role, therefore is very important. 
With a conventional incorrect platter or mat (alloy, glass, felt and to a lesser lesser degree, acrylic) these pressures remain in the record, bouncing around and muddling up the sound. With a well-designed platter, however, pressure waves are tricked into thinking that they are in a much thicker record and so have further to travel before getting back to the stylus. 

Achroplat does this by being made of the same material as the record. Achroplat’s space age design loses energy by using bubbles. 
Just as a quality sponge bed mattress both supports and damps, so the thin wall bubbles in Achroplat flex, making it easy for energy to dissipate.

New for 2010 is Achroplat II. 
Achroplat II has a higher inertia so that it us a direct platter replacement for Regas and Systemdecks and more. 
Achroplat II is a platter and mat in one and so does not need a mat.
Achroplat’s improvements are instantaneous. 
Bettering all previous platters, even Pink Triangle’s original acrylic, Achroplat’s reputation keeps growing because it really works.
So, now you know.
