What is the purpose of this record puck? (also known as a record weight)
Q: We might just as well ask the question; what is the point of any record weight?*
A: to dampen vibrations running through the record as it is being played.
Q: why lead shot chambers?
A: Very much like a sand box, the individual lead shot vibrate against one another when stimulated by an external source of vibration. This implies that the individual shot act as a conduit through which vibrations travel. However, because the individual shot are in intimate contact with a large mass of shot, there is not enough energy coming from the source stimulant to force the vibrations to pass completely through the chamber. Ergo vibrations go in, they are dissipated and die within the shot chamber. When this theory is executed properly within a record puck, the end effect is that the reduction in record vibrations result in a cleaner sounding playback. This should also result in a measurable improvement in the s/n ratio.
*(Record weights are often nick-named a 'puck'. because the size and shape often resembles a hockey puck)
