Record weights


  Just wondering what you folks consider acceptable poundage for these things. In my shopping Ive seen weights vary between 7 oz up to 3 lbs! I just want enough weight to be effective without killing my TT ( Clearaudio Concept wood)  Thanks for your thoughts.

If you want to go lite, try a Starsound Platter Ground(200gm).  It's not so much a record weight as (in theory) a means to redirect spurious vibrational energy out of the LP.  I also have a Stillpoints LPI(around 1.5lbs) that works well.  I plan to compare the two across several tonearm and cartridge combos and post results. 
The Starsound Platter Ground is $200.
