    Sorry to hear that Boyse, I'd be lost without mine.

    I pushed the boat out as far as I could financially but the seismic feet are just out of reach. In time, maybe I can but not yet.

    I am looking forward to seeing how you get on with the Denon. It should be fabulous.

    Iím really pleased the mat has made a difference.

    My advice remains the same... option 1 is still the Welsh Blue Slate base.... ( cheapest option).

    Second is the Magnetic Levitation feet... third is the Townshend Seismic Pods ( most expensive).

    Do what you can when funds permit!!!

    I am changing my TT from the Rock 7 to the Denon DP80 for a reason,,,, as I have never had any other TT than the Townshend for the last 50 Years........ and need to try something different.

    If it works..... fab,,,, if not , I know that time has not been wasted.

    I appreciate your endeavours with the SP10...... as it is a very fine deck indeed!,,

    Only time will tell???? I know what good sounds like...... however many will disagree

    Peter

    Looks good Oliver hope it sounds amazing. The issues you had with the feet as mentioned will not be helped by the plywood. I had a play around and used a thick piece of Oak and I get nothing at all back through the turntable. I dont know it the 1210s rubber base helps the cause on mine.
    The feet suit your turntable though

    Possibly. I'll be looking at less expensive options than seismic feet but the mat has helped. I'll play more tomorrow.

    Update:

    Initial listening has convinced me that the mat is making a significant difference. Lower noise floor, tightness and much better decay. So im convinced there is little resonance now. So to be sure I've doubled up slightly.

    Ugly but effective. And free!!!!

    My AT1010 is stock but also came from Phonomac (in a round about way), though it has a collar for the counterweight that allows it to take SPU-weight cartridges.

    I run it on my Garrard and it's lovely. I think some of the early reviews that are kicking around misunderstood it and used it with cartridges that were too compliant .. it's really a proper medium mass arm, so wouldn't have been ideal with many of the new-fangled high compliance ones that were becoming popular when it was released. It's much more in its element these days and a better partner to newer cartridges that it would have been back in its hey day.

    There were plans to hear a stock version of the arm yesterday but unfortunately it never happened. I am exceeding pleased with my Phonomac version. I thought it really outperformed any other arm I have personally heard. So I bought one. Stunning arm.

    Yes I got one off ebay as well. Great for breeding out noise in an idler like the TD124.
