This is a cool bit of kit. It’s very tactile, put it like that. The Stabilizer is a series of 8 weights located around a centre weight with the Thorens logo upon it. Simply sit on the spindle of your record and the results are there to hear. Reduces resonance, helps clamp the record to the platter and therefore reduces warps and generally makes an easier time for the stylus. Adds mass. Weight is 0.55kg.
Here’s what Thorens say:- The Stabilizer works with all Thorens and many other turntables.
The Stabilizer features a precision balanced and resonance dampened set of polished weights which not only hold the record firmer to the platter, but also help to reduce minor warps and absorb vibration and resonances in the vinyl.
Works with felt and rubber mats alike, guaranteed to improve the sound of any turntable. Includes a stylish wood box for elegant storage.
The Thorens Stabilizer ensures optimum contact between record and platter mat. Available in chrome or Blue.
