Whereas the standard LP Statmat is a
single layer of our patented conductive
film, the LP Blue comprises two Statmat
films, one each side of a polyester
substrate, and in addition there is a
third Statmat film called a Statcap.
These three antistatic films work
together at 90º to each other. The
configuration is very much more powerful
that way, eliminating all those “clicks”
and “pops” caused by static and
preventing the record mat from being
“stuck” to the underside of the disc
when it is lifted at the end of play.
There is also a further benefit in using
the latest LP Statmat configuration in
that unwanted electronic fields arising
from playing LP records, which cause
phase distortions to the signal, are
largely eliminated. The full extent of
this problem is not appreciated without
doing A/B comparisons with and without
the Statmat devices.
