Buyer's review :

  1) Model HD1.5 , 2.0 (Standard) :

         -. "I have just purchased another headshell damper and a wooden DL-103 body.
             The damper really improved the sound of my AT33PTG on a Nagaoka headshell substantially
             (more body, warmer sound). Please send both the body and the damper (2mm) in Panga Panga wood.
             Best regards, G.W from Austria. Nov-27-12"

         -. "Yes, of course feel free to quote my message concerning the headshell damper.
              I did not expect this tiny thing to improve the sound, I just got it to achieve the correct VTA without
              adding too much weight.  What a surprise!   Kind regards,  G.W  from Austria. Nov-28-12"

         -.I have bought these dampers in the past and they are essential because I get a truer sound
             from the cartridge when I use a damper. A wonderful product !  , coplxxxxx UK "
             (This buyer have bought 'SME type, Mpingo' and 'standard type, Mpingo'.)

         -. "Dear K. S. Song
             I would like to give a short feedback about my experience with your products.
             I ordered a few weeks ago a record stabilizer large, disk block footers for under my loudspeakers,
             a headshell damper and a set of cones.
             When i received the Items, i was impressed, how beautiful they are made.  
             A shiny surface, and the items are all very beautiful crafted.
             I did the implication in my Hifi-system one by one.  I startet with the Disk Clamp.
             It changed the sound of my turntable in a positive way.
             I have a Nottingham Spacedeck with some improvements like graphite mat, carbone waffle base,
and a power supply.

            The sound with the clamp improved clearly.
            The base is a bit tighter and more organic and the whole presentation of the music is more natural.
            The sound is also more focused.  I had a certain fuzziness before  which some would call airiness.  
             I like the more focused and centered sound, it feels more natural and live-like.
            The musicians are standing now right in front of me. What a joy!

            The footers under my loudspeakers weren't the same big improvement, because i had already wooden
            footers instead of the standard metal footers,  and my monitors,  the wonderful Harbeth 30.1 are on stands
            which will not give the same effect compared two floor standers.  
            But I had still a audible experience with it. The sound was more natural and organic than before.

            I was impressed by the headshell damper.
            I used the cartridge isolator from MusicMaker  before, which i liked a lot.  But your damper is better.
           The transient speed is clearly better. It really improves the sound.
           I have a darker background and a more natural feel to the music without any negative aspects.

           I like all the tested products very much.
           They are all integrated in my Hifi system since many weeks and they all will be staying there for sure.  
           Thanks for your good products.  The music is now more authentic and joyful at my home.
            I can highly recommend your products to everyone.
            Sincerely,  J.E.Z. from Switzerland, 2015.1.17."
            (This buyer bought Mpingo LP stabilizer large, Headshell damper standard, Disk block MD-02 (2sets,8ea)
             & 03(1set,4ea)

    2) Model Denon-Mpingo, Panga panga :          
          -. I received the Denon headshell dampers and want to thank you for including two.
             I have been listening to the 1.5T and it has made a definite and obvious improvement

             in the sound--less background noise and hence more detail, as well as richer and tighter bass.

             I will try the other damper sometime soon and let you know the result." (From eBay buyer, Jan.28.2011)

          -. "Very quick ship, nice improvement in Denon sound. Excellent, thank you!" (From eBay buyer, Feb.02.2011)

          -. "Thank you very much! I love this wood spacer. Used the first one on an Ortofon Quintet MC Mono
               on a Sumiko metal headshell. Very nice sound improvement!
               This one I will use on a Denon 103R on Yamamoto Sound Craft Carbon Fibre headshell.
               I'm sure it will improve this cartridge sound also." (June.22,2015. D.T. Australia)

     3) Model SME-Mpingo, Panga panga : 
           -. "I have bought these dampers in the past and they are essential because I get a truer sound
               from the cartridge when I use a damper. A wonderful product !  coplxxxxx UK"
               (This buyer have bought 'SME type, Mpingo' and 'standard type, Mpingo'.)

                            Do not loose your chance to enjoy more improved sound!
