DiscTraker--a revolutionary tonearm damper from Discwasher
Disctracker is a precision damping device that improves the performance of tonearm/cartridge systems by adding a protective cushion between the record and the tracking stylus.
-reduces low frequency resonance that colors the sound of even the best tonearm/cartridge systems on all records.
-reduces record-warp resonance-as witnessed by a dramatic reduction of woofer flutter.
- permits accurate tracking of even badly warped records.
- reduces record wear and stylus damage from warps.
- reduces distortion caused by high velocity groove overload, mistracking and intermodulation.
- adaptable to most tonearms.
Figure 1 shows the amplitude of low frequency resonance in a typical tonearm/cartridge system using a "flat" record.
Figure 2 shows the identical conditions with the Disctraker damping system on the tonearm.
