The purpose of this armboard upgrade is to prevent cartridge and arm resonances from reaching the chassis, and through this, the upgrade reduces the feedback to the cartridge.

The vibrations are stopped by the three different layers and the isolated screws before the chassis is reached, improving sound-rendering and resolution.
The kit is very easy to install, and the PVC washers makes the universal-kit height-adjustable, so that the armboard VTA is proper. Further 3 PVC-washers increases the stability of the acrylic-ring.
The armboard height for the adjustable arms is optimized individually, so that the height of the arm is to be adjusted as little as possible (see the above picture of the SME Armboard).
