Riverstone Audio's newest line of record weights - our Rock & Roll 380 Series Record Reights. What can we say, we like music, we love Rock & Roll and couldn't settle for a boring record weight. We want record weights that perform as well as they look. These record weights are definitely not your average record weight - engineered and manufactured to perfection. The Rock & Roll 380 record weight is precision CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum (a premium aerospace grade aluminum with a hardness approximately 58% higher than commonly used 6061-T6). The unique surface finish and rich colors of the R&R 380 is obtained by a multi-step hand polishing and glass-beading procedure, followed by an anodizing treatment. After anodizing and inspection, the surface is manually buffed and waxed to obtain the desired finish. The top surface of the weight is then finely engraved with a vibrant laser image of Yin Yang Dragons -- part of Riverstone Audio's selected Rock & Roll Theme record weights. The attention to detail does not stop there - to protect your LP record labels and provide additional damping, a 1 mm thick EVA pad is affixed to the base of the record weight. A foam-lined wooden box (pine) is also included to protect the weight when not in use.Specifications: Mass 380 g, Dimensions: 34.5 mm height, maximum diameter (at base) 80.0 mm, Spindle hole 7.25 mm diameter x 20 mm deep. Laser engraving: "Yin Yang Dragon" on top surface.  Color: Moody Blue.  

  • A RECORD WEIGHT WITH STYLE- Riverstone Audio's Rock & Roll 380 Record Weights- Yin Yang Dragon Series. Music isn't boring, so why should a record weight be? These weights have it all, superb craftsmanship, good looks and, above all, the ability to enhance sound quality. The top surface of the record weight has a finely-detailed laser engraving of Yin Yang Dragons - instantly dress up your turntable with artistic style and personality.
  • BETTER SOUND - Improves contact between a record and platter to reduce the transfer of unwanted vibrations to a stylus. The reduction of extraneous vibrations reduces distortion - provides better detail, tighter bass and overall improvement of sound quality. Also helpful to temporarily improve flatness of LP's; a warped or bowed record changes the contact angle between the stylus tip and record groove - leading to audio distortion and additional lateral loading of a stylus.
  • LESS STRESS ON MOTORS - The medium mass (380 g) of the R&R 380 makes it well suited for use on most turntables, including vintage turntables. The medium mass requires a lower starting torque and the low profile/precision machining reduce wobble which lowers axial and radial loading of motor/spindle bearings during record playback.
 
  • LOOKS GREAT ON ANY TURNTABLE – The R&R 380 record weights not only improve sound quality, they are a work of art, and ergonomically designed for easy gripping. The exquisite surface finish was obtained by a process that involves multi-step glass beading, hand polishing and anodizing for surface protection and color. Looks great on and off a turntable.
  • LOW PROFILE - Fits under most dust covers; however, best to measure before ordering (requires approx. 36 mm from record surface to underside of dust cover). foam-lined wooden box is included to protect the record weight when not in use. Spec's: Mass 380g, 34.5 mm height, max. diameter (at base) 80 mm, spindle hole 7.25 mm dia. x 20 mm deep. Laser engraving: "Yin Yang Dragon" on top surface. Color: Moody Blue.
