  • TechDas Acrylic Platter Cover

    Acrylic platter cover
    Platter Top
    Platter Top
    Acrylic platter cover that protects turntable and record from dirt and dust
    If you put a record board on the platter with dust, dust may stick to the back side of the record board, it may cure and cause noise and sound skipping. Maintaining and cleaning the turntable and records is necessary to prevent the sound quality of the record from being impaired or to prevent the catastrophic failure of music playback.

    TechDAS acrylic platter cover is a protective cover that you can use to protect platter when not using turntable. Just thinking about protecting the platter surface, simple design does not damage the appearance of the turntable itself.

    Price: ~$230.

      I use the plastic protective sheet that came with my Herbie's Way Excellent Two platter mat but if someone wanted to gift me the TechDAS cover, I'd happily take it.

        I knew some other companies made something similar. Actually good idea for exactly reasons given.

        When I'm not using my turntable, an Oracle Delphi I place a cleaned LP that I would not play on the matt which can attract dust that adheres to the sticky surface. I store this LP in a clean inner sleeve. The table has a lid that is easily removed and replaced after use.

          Very simple and elegant looking. I think the price shows the issues with the retail chain of markups and the lack of economy of scale in manufacturing. I was thinking about the "best turntables" article posted somewhere, where the best buy was a Jensen USB TT with arm and cartridge (and maybe built in phono pre) for $50. So you could buy 4 or more of those for the price of this cover. Nothing against TechDas, but it brings some of the issues of why hi end equipment costs so much, and that most probably TechDas is not going to make a big (or even little) fortune on this device.

            Could you use a junk record to cover the platter when not in use?

              Yes, but it wouldn't look as nice. I was thinking about one of my picture records. I have the Linda Ronstadt, where she's putting on her roller skates!

            I was going to ask, "what am I missing here?" My Kuzma XL really doesn't accommodate a dust cover, and for years, I have used an old dead record to cover the platter. It happens to be a translucent green record that was one of those horrible sounding re-do's of the Bowie catalog by Ryko that issued some years ago. Thing was unlistenable anyway. The one side is blank and has no label copy. At least it serves a purpose. Click image for larger version

              Since they want $2000 for a headshell, I think the platter cover is a bargain. Seriously.

                  Felt mats can be bad news in the winter time if you have low humidity in your house. They build up static like crazy.

                    No issues here.....I just use them to keep dust off the platter plus there ain't much felt on these, ha ha

                          Brilliant and so obvious. That's the ticket Larry ! Not sure why I didn't think about an old record. Now I'm using some old Mercury's that didn't make the condition cut for playback on my system.
