    It's where I'd like to go but financially it's impossible lol.

    The Townshend Seismic Pods retail at 99 each, but AoS members can expect a decent discount. A Seismic Platform costs rather more, of course, but since you have a motor unit bolted firmly to a nice heavy plinth, you don't need a complete platform to isolate the deck from vibrations passing up from the structure of your house - a set of Pods will do that job comprehensively. Remove those structure-borne vibrations and something rather magical happens to the music - after all a pickup cartridge is designed to be a sensitive vibration measurement transducer, so if you can leave it to track solely what's going on in the groove, better music will result. The Pods won't work with a floppy suspended deck, but they will with yours.

    How difficult can it be to design and make an isolating foot?

    It wouldn't be beyond me.

    Mind you, some turntables benefit from being coupled to what they sit on rather than isolated from it.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    They sound promising, I might try some once I have funds again. I have Isonoe feet on just now but feel I need something better.

    I could be tempted with a 75% discount

    Seriously. Can't do it at the minute but its something I'll get to in the future.

    It sou n like a similar theory to the cheaper Funk Bo!ng. I also believe that AK is developing a "Kinetic" cradle for turntables. The BO!ng feet will be worth trying on home loan.

    Thanks Cagey, I'll look into them.
