The Waynes and VPI rings use different centering techniques. The VPI ring uses the platter's side wall to center itself on the record, whereas the Wayne's ring uses a centering tool that positions the ring over the record with so that the ring hangs off the record's edge.

Exactly what I thought. So is the point that there's not enough spindle for the centering tool to work properly with a thicker mat (similar to the point I made about reflex clamps and thick mats)? If that's NOT the issue, then I still fail to see how a thick mat would have any adverse effect on using a ring clamp.


The Wayne's mat would not be affected by a record mat, whereas, if a thick mat was used with a VPI ring, it may not be able to reach the platter's side wall. It has nothing to do with the center spindle or a record center weight.

Great! So it sounds like I should have no issue using this Wayne's ring with my Boston Audio Mat2, which is 5mm thick, but I would likely have an issue using the VPI ring. Correct?

I’ve seen these rings and was interested but will they work on a Scout with an acrylic platter?

The Wayne’s ring will work with any platter whether it be a 11.5 or 12 inch, it doesn’t matter.

I also have the Boston Audio Mat2, and I can use the VPI ring in combination with it without issue. I'm using the acrylic platter but I would imagine the specs for the "platter shoulder" would be the same as the aluminum unit.

FWIW, USAUDIOMART has a listing of these rings for $599 direct from Waynes. I have no involvement:
