The LPI V2 slips over the spindle of your turntable and rests on the label portion of the LP. This our patented isolation filter absorbs the micro vibrations that are created by the stylus skating in the grooves. If left un-intercepted, the vibrations flow past the spindle and directly back to the cartridge as the record rotates. The LPI V2 dramatically increases the sound stage size and focus. Lowering the noise floor at the source exposes the most minute detail of location and presence greatly adding realism and emotional expression to the listening experience.
