Was quite active here for a period after acquiring my WTA nearly 9 years back. Platter mats were a major thread with the Auditorium A23 rising to the top of the heap fairly quickly. Then discussion and agreement on “textured side down” sounding best.
Am now using the WTA with an Ortofon A95 and getting best sound ever. I’m convinced that this TT will never be a “weak link.”
Quick search hasn’t turned up other mats that may possibly work better than the A23. Am curious as to whether anyone has turned up another mat that may be,at least, a contender.
