I see. Nice setup!

So do you use it with the screw on clamp? Where does the washer go in that case?

I am using a Stillpoints LPI weight. From my past experience with reflex clamps and having the mat to look at, the washer would go on top of the mat.

I'm afraid that any difference I would hear would be potentially psychologically (and $$$) induced.....

What differences do you hear? Inquiring minds want to know!!

Better low level detail retrieval, better definition, unmasking more musical information. I prefer the blue hft with the Synergistic clamp compared to the red one.
