    MoFi Electronics proudly announces the addition of the Super HeavyWeight record weight to their product lineup. Best described as a “super noise killer”, it is intended for use with all makes of turntables - not just MoFi Electronics models.

    The Super HeavyWeight was conceived with the assistance of MoFi Electronics’ good friend, Mike Latvis, of Harmonic Resolution Systems (HRS). The device uses a proprietary HRS polymer material, reknowned for its exceptional noise absorption characteristics and an internal decoupled mass damping system all enclosed a non magnetic aluminum housing. In addition to coupling the record to the platter, the Super HeavyWeight significantly reduces noise – specifically, record groove noise, platter, and bearing noise. Listeners will hear more music due to resultant blacker backgrounds, increased inner detail, improved clarity, enhanced microdynamics, and greater bass impact.

    Super HeavyWeight technical highlights:

    - Dimensions: 3.0” diameter and 1.355” height.
    - Weight: 367 grams, excellent for a wide range of turntable models.
    - Outer shell: Comprised of billet-machined 6061 aluminum for an easy grip.
    - Underside: Made from a proprietary HRS polymer that ensures excellent
    performance and damage-free operation with LPs.

    Created by music lovers for music lovers, and born from a desire to get the most music out of vinyl LPs, the MoFi Electronics Super HeavyWeight is a real “ear opener” that offers exceptional value - especially for budget-minded vinylphile. While no turntable is perfect, adding a Super HeavyWeight guarantees a big leap in sonic performance.

    The MoFi Electronics Super HeavyWeight is available now with an MSRP of $199.00

      Interesting, more than just a weight - I like the construction. I wouldn't call 13 oz. super heavy, though. I think one of mine is 3 lbs, or so.

        This looks like a re-branding of the original HRS Light Wt which didn’t have that designation until Mike made a heavy weight which weighed maybe 2 lbs? I used both for a while. Very good before I began using the TW Mat at which time I stopped using any weight.

          Oh, I thought it was going to be about a new premium vinyl series- you know, "everybody does 180 grams, some do 200 grams, we are now upping the ante- 340 gram records."
          You'll have a hard time lifting these onto the platter, will have to adjust your VTA, SRA, etc. and reset your suspension if you use such a turntable. But, boy is it worth it! Every record sounds like Black Sabbath at 16 rpm. Heavy Vinyl*

          *Didn't MCA do a series called "Heavy Vinyl"-- I think the Dave Mason solo album is on it.
          PS: I like the HRS products, so I'm not being completely snarky.

          Myles, are you planning to do a test drive and report back?

              We hear the noise floor drop, even before the first note, and no, it doesn't deaden or dull the sound.

              Thanks! That was my hope...

            I saw the item myself and would be most appreciative if someone tried the device and provided feedback on here. I use the record weight that comes with my VPI Classic 4, but I expect its performance could easily be surpassed.
