PREMIUM QUALITY - Riverstone Audio Products are designed to enhance your music listening experience. We believe that audio products should be designed and manufactured to exacting standards using the best available materials and with close attention to detail. Jazz 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).
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 Jazz 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 Jazz 380 record weight not only improves sound quality, it is 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. The "Burnt Orange" color is a classic 70's color; looks great on any turntable- modern or vintage. A foam-lined wooden box is included to protect the record weight when not in use.
LARGE BASE, 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). With a large 80 mm diameter base, and a 1 mm thick EVA pad, the Jazz 380 record weight provides excellent vibration damping. Specifications: Mass 380g, 34.5 mm height, max. diameter (at base) 80 mm, spindle hole 7.25 mm dia. x 20 mm deep. Color: Burnt Orange with a satin finish.

Our Professional Grade record weights are designed and manufactured to exacting specification using the best available materials. The Jazz 380 record weight has a low center of gravity and is precision machined from a solid billet of aerospace grade 7075-T6 aluminum (7075-T6 has a surface hardness approx. 58% higher than commonly used 6061-T6 and other lower-grade aluminum alloys). The Jazz 380 record weight turns true and performs as it should - improving sound quality by keeping an LP in firm contact with the turntable platter to reduce extraneous vibrations that can be picked up by a turntable stylus. The Jazz 380 is compatible with most turntables with non-threaded spindles. With a 380 g mass, this medium-weight record weight is a good choice for turntables that may have lower torque or older motors (high mass record weights are best suited for turntables that have high starting torque motors and robust motor/spindle bearings). The Jazz 380 record weight also looks great on a turntable. Unlike lower cost record weights, which are typically painted, we use surface anodizing to both protect and color the surface of our record weights. The unique surface finish and color of the Jazz 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 result is a visually pleasing satin finish, with a vintage 70's color- "Burnt Orange". 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 your record weight when not in use. Specifications: Mass 380 g, 34.5 mm height, maximum diameter (at base) 80.0 mm, spindle hole size 7.25 mm diameter x 20 mm deep. Color: Burnt Orange - satin finish.
