3 PONUD BRASS LOW PROFILE LOCK DOWN RECORD CLAMP
THE AMAZING SOUND IN A LOCK DOWN CLAMP .
THE LOW PROFILE LOCK DOWN RECORD CLAMP CAN MAKE DYNAMIC CHANGES.
WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT A LOW PROFILE LOCK DOWN CLAMP COULD CHANGE THE SOUND SO MUCH.
THIS IS NOT A SIT ON MY RECORD WEIGHT.
THIS IS A PRECISION LOW PROFILE LOCK DOWN RECORD CLAMP.
EXPRESSIMOAUDIO LOCKED DOWN RECORD CLAMP LEAVES NO GAP IN THE MUSIC
BECAUSE THE VINYL BECOMES ONE WITH THE PLATTER.
VTA IS MORE ACCURATE THROUGHOUT THE VINYL BECAUSE VINYL IS PUSHED FLAT TO THE PLATTER.
LOW PROFILE MASS BECAUSE YOU DO NOT WANT A TOP HEAVY CENTER WEIGHT.
SCREWED TIGHT FOR PRECISION LOCK DOWN.
MADE FROM BRASS , DELRIN AND A BRASS LOCKER.
YOU KNOW IN THE AUDIO WORLD IT IS ABOUT THE SOUND.
EXPRESSIMOAUDIO HAS LOOKED AT AND TRIED OTHER CLAMP DESIGNS AND SAID
WHY WOULD YOU MAKE A HIGH MASS WEIGHT 2" AND 3" ABOVE THE RECORD TO WOBBLE AROUND.
MOST OF WHAT EXPRESSIMO FOUND WAS SLOPPY MACHINING.
WHAT YOU DO NOT WANT IS A SIT ON ME RECORD CLAMP.
WHAT YOU DO NOT WANT IS A HIGH MASS RECORD CLAMP.
WHAT YOU DO NOT WANT IS ANOTHER COMPANY COPYING ANOTHER BAD IDEA.
WE ALL KNOW THAT RECORD LABELS ARE DIFFERENT THICKNESSES.
SO PLATTERS THAT ARE RELIEVED IN THE CENTER FOR THICK LABELS WOULD NOT BE GOOD FOR A
THIN LABEL. AND A SIT ON ME, HIGH MASS, WEIGHTED CLAMP WOULD BE BENDING THE RECORD OFF THE PLATTER LEAVING A GAP AT THE OUTSIDE OF THE RECORD.
YOUR VTA IS LOST.
IT WILL NEVER SOUND GOOD AND RIGHT.
AND THOSE OUTER RING CLAMPS ARE JUNK. REALLY BAD IDEA.
JUST TRY IT WITH YOUR CLAMP. TAKE A THIN LABELED RECORD PUT YOUR CLAMP ON IT AND TAP ON THE OUTSIDE SEE IF YOU FIND IT NOT SITTING FLAT.
BINGO, JUST ANOTHER COPY CAT WITH THE SAME OLD SCHOOL DESIGN.
WE HAVE TAKEN THE TIME TO REALLY STUDY THE PROBLEM.
BY USING INDICATORS ( CMM MACHINE ) TO CHECK TRUE FLATNESS OF RECORDS.
IF YOUR PLATTER IS RELIEVED .015 AND YOUR LABEL IS .010 AT THE CENTER
THINK ABOUT HOW MUCH THAT IS OFF AT THE OUTER GROOVES.
THOUSANDS OF AND INCH.
YOU UNDERSTANDING NOW THAT A SIT ON ME RECORD CLAMP IS JUNK.
OLD SCHOOL THINKING AND BAD DESIGNS.

Brian this new Collet works GREAT for VPI Turntables
Collet works like a champ-no damage to threads. As you know, I’m using no platter mat. In my system with the Titan or any of the Avengers, there’s really no need. The shim is in place, the outer ring is sitting correctly on the platter for another 10lbs of mass. The clamp does an excellent job of pressing the record down and most importantly, keeping it level. The outer ring would be needed for a dished record or a badly warped record, and I don’t have too many of those.
There’s no doubt that there is an improvement in performance. Bass is improved and so is top level extension, meaning there is more air around all of the instruments. And, separation is also improved. Now, the Titan uses a massive platter, and the clamp makes an improvement there. So, on a table that uses a less massive platter, I would imagine the results would be more substantial.
Additionally, the clamp is AMAZING on the new Technics SL-1200G, as well as the great Direct Drives of the 70’s and early 80’s. I mean the Technics SP-10 series, Luxman PD-444 and 441’s, Kenwood KD-990, 750, 770, 500, 550, 600, 650 series, Denon DP-57,59,60,61,62,72, 80 series, Sony PS-8750, PSX-70, PSE-4000, TTS-6000 & 8000 series, Yamaha GT-2000 series and any Exclusive (Pioneer Japan series) tables. I used it on the Sony PS8750, Luxman PD-444 and Technics Sl-1200G, and the results are significant with the clamp and the Brass Half Moon Counter Weight. Again, black backgrounds, better imaging, more detail and separation of instruments and vocals. The Sony PUA-1600 tone arm, already a killer, was made better by the Half Moon counterweight.
The VTA Gauge Block set was quite useful in providing an excellent reference from which to achieve proper VTA. Admittedly, I ultimately tune by ear to some extent, but I’m a big believer in first establishing the correct foundation from which to adjust from.
Overall I’m very happy with the product and I’m looking forward to receiving feedback from clients when they analyze it on their own systems.
I have been listening to my vinyl with your new record clamp for a few days now and I am very pleased with the sonic improvement it has provided. First let me say that the build quality, materials and design of the clamp is nothing short of world class. Compared to other record clamps and weights that I own, the sound improvement gained with your clamp is very dramatic. The bass response is greatly improved with your clamp. It is deeper and more defined but not bloated or distorted. Tight and clean but with more punch is the best way I can describe it. The singers voice is clearer and more life like. Every inflection of the singers voice is more accurately produced. Mid range sound is very rich and warm. Highs are sharp and smooth with extended decay. The air around the instruments is increased which gives a better separation of the instruments in a given recording. Sound stage is wider and deeper but also at the same time it pulls the listener in closer to the musicians giving a "you are there on stage" feel to the recording. Overall the music sounds more natural and alive. The effects this record clamp has on vinyl is not subtle. I think your clamp allows for the best performance of a listener's turntable, tonearm and cartridge. I personally experienced a significant increase in performance with my analog system. I would highly recommend other audiophiles to try this record clamp. I think that you will be pleasantly surprised at the sonic improvements this product can make to your system. Brian, great product !
