The AT618 is a useful accessory for music listeners, audio enthusiasts and DJs who require higher fidelity sound quality from their records. The AT618 stabiliser fits over the turntable spindle, sits on top of the record and applies 600 grams of weight, holding the record firmly in place while stabilising the record and improving overall sound quality. This is especially useful when playing records where bass vibration or resonance is an issue, when playing a slightly warped record or when recording your vinyl into your computer and you need a cleaner sound. The AT618 is recommended for use with high-torque turntables with firm platter suspension. It will not work well with turntables that have soft suspension and weak drive systems.
