What is the best material to use for anti vibration, decoupling feet ?

Recommended Posts

While most equipment can benefit from additional isolation, I find TT’s are the most sensitive to the material used. I think it is often better to isolate under the shelf the TT is sitting on that directly under the TT feet themselves (suspended decks), almost as if the TT likes to have a reactive surface to work from.

Under the turntable feet or the decoupling base (if there is any) or both?

I have thought about a hifi turntable since i the last 2 weeks i have seen new rega and project turntables for sale for a good price

My i'd like to be a technics sl 1210 turntable (reloop 2000mk2) has a hollow plastic plinth where hifi turntables like rega and project has a solid plinth , alone that most  make a sonical difference ?

I cut 4 30sm2 squares from one of these sorbothane sheets to "stick" speakers to the stands (adhesive side fixed to the stand):

The trouble with a generic approach like that is that it's unlikely to have the right type/loading combination to work optimally.

I use these Vibropods under a very heavy piece of compact laminate.

IIRC I’ve used them under my turntable plinth and they sucked the life of music so I passed them on.

If I had intended to filter a particular resonance or two I would have had to have measured the offending frequencies but all I wanted was some stickiness and a bit of absorption/decoupling.

I would rather have used double-sided adhesive tape but this would have damaged the veneer.

Mine was a different problem...

When I use standmount speakers I just use blu tack :).

I think the absorption/decoupling of Sorbothane is fairly broadband rather than particularly tuned but actually I realise I don't recall seeing specific data on this.

Looks like something for a computer or a car
