Unlike weights or clamps, this device approaches the improvement of record sonic performance by transferring resonance and airborne energy at high speed from the vinyl record, tonearm, phono cartridge, and platter to the turntable grounding pole, commonly known as the spindle.
Problem: Extraneous energy generated by mechanical, electromechanical and, more importantly airborne resonance, directly affect the tonearm, record and cartridge performance. Amplitudes of this resonance cycle through the turntable structure, the release of which is impeded by friction within the contact of materials (per Coulomb's law).
Solution: Research of turbulent energy patterns established on the vinyl record itself has opened doors of new mechanical grounding insight never anticipated by Star Sound product developers. It has been discovered that under constant centrifugal momentum, introduction of the Platter Ground™ caused resonant energies in such a structure to become neutralized (become laminar in fashion). As a result, the resultant force vector of detrimental energy (mechanical, electromechanical and airborne resonances) become purely "normal" (perpendicular) to the spindle, opening a direct pathway for unwanted outside energy to flow away from the table. This in effect expedites the mechanical grounding effect, thus removing (not damping) the resonant byproducts.
Recently reviewed by Norm Luttbeg: Star Sound Technologies Platter Ground:
"Star Sound Technologies continues their innovations. This one surprised me. It is to be put on your records in the center. It is what they call a platter ground. Not a record weight as it weighs little. Not a record clamp as it doesn’t clamp. It also is not in contact with the spindle. So how, you might ask, does it work?
This unit offers immediate illumination of the recording venue. I thought I was in the recording studio once I upped the volume to real levels for this big band.”http://www.stereotimes.com/post/star-sound-technologies-platter-ground/
