I didn't mean to imply the advice was bad. I just thought a one year gap between question and answer was funny.

I agree.

I also had a bit of acoustic feedback on the SSM that the Cloud 12S eliminated completely.

When I was installing discos in the 70's and 80's we had two choices, mass was one and the other was a tuned suspension. Mass was the easiest, just fill a well constructed box with sand and a heavy steel top. But some times that didn't work. Especially when the DJ booth was on a suspended balcony or hung off a wall. Then the only choice was to tune the mounting platform and select a cartridge, tone arm combination that wasn't effected by the resonant frequency of the mounting. There were a few companies that made platforms for disco TT to sit on that you could tune by adjusting the feet. Some worked most didn't. There was one company that had three different platforms with different frequency tuning. They worked well but I don't know if they are in business any more. A nice heavy piece of steel with a choice of springs worked for me on a few occasions, when using QRK tables Why QRK, because the owners wanted instant acceleration and be able to slip Q, too. Sl 1200 were a great feedback solution TT but they couldn't come up or hold speed like a puck driven TT. And you needed the mass to reduce the TT table rumble. We used external pre-amps with 30 HZ filters to calm down down the QRK imperfections with Stanton cartridges.

Default Stillpoints under VPI Classic

I need the help of our resident analog masters. I want to isolate the TT in the best way possible. I have been making stands for each of my components...so far, I've been using 1.5" thick solid walnut stands with brass cones placed on my rack (see pics below.)

Would a similar approach be beneficial on the top shelf of the rack for a VPI Classic? Would it be more beneficial to use a walnut stand placed on isolation blocks and not use the cones for this application? Or, should I bypass the extra stand all-together?

Thoughts?
I know several Classic owners that have replaced the OEM feet with Stillpoints Ultra SS and are very pleased with the improvements.

John do you have the screws to fit the VPI's? It would be fun to try the Ultra SS's with my Scout 1.1.

I really like my Symposium Segue ISO platform with the springs on the bottom. I could hear an improvement as soon as I placed it under my Classic 3. Replacing the footer inserts with Symposium inserts also improved the sound quality for me. I don't have my TT on an expensive stand though.

Hey Guys...I am having an issue with Low Frequency rumble. I own a VPI classic signature. Just purchased some platforms from Symposium Acoustics. The rumble didn't appear until after getting the platforms. I use one for my MC452 and C2600 as well.

Placing the TT directly on my wood console is fine.

Thoughts?
