Anybody tried the Record Doctor clamp?

I'm not sure my system(or even my ears) would benefit from a clamp but at $30 it's worth a shot I guess.

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Hmmm; that clamp has an amazing resemblance to my Clearaudio clamp but at less than 1/3 the price. Seems like a no brainer to me and yes clamps do make a difference

    Very similar looks wise. Was going to offer this one at half price retail, but, $30 seems like a great price...if it works as it's supposed to it's a steal. I say go for it and let us know.

    I have one. I find it makes a noticeable difference on some albums, but not all. The one thing I do not like about it is I can not lower my dust cover when using it.

    Skip, never seen one that looks like that....interesting. My niece has asked me what I want for Christmas so I think I'll let Santa bring me the RD item. I didn't want something with a lot of weight(direct drive tt).

    Interesting comment about playing records with the cover down. I've never done that with the thinking any possible rumble or other noise would be magnified.

    I keep the cover down because for whatever reason there is a ton of dust always floating around my room. I wipe a substantial amount of dust off of my speakers, receivers, desk, and other things every day. Otherwise, I'd keep it off, but I think that the rumble caused by the cover is better than the sheer amount of dust that would land on the rekkids. :)

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Between the cat and the kids, cover down to avoid catastrophe at the risk of worse sound. Of course critical listening when the family is out and I make sure the cat is napping
