Your herzan cant move fast enough to remove all vibration - its superficial.Quick....we need to advise all those scientists looking through electron microscopes sitting on Herzan stands....🤣ISOLATION 'OFF'ISOLATION 'ON'

utilises SPZ which dissipates any energy between 4 and 100hz internally at a molecular level, but is completely rigid.Nice story....🤗Unfortunately....a fairytale 🤥Not only will 4Hz go straight through your plinth...but every frequency from 1Hz-10H...

What weight did your granite base come in at?The base weighs 18 lbs (8.1 Kg)......

Thanks for all the Links Chak........Wonderful information (thanks to Google Translate)....almost too much to absorb in one reading 🤔I particularly like his closing paragraph.....A good sound is a purely subjective thing. I never said that my cart...

That Toho stuff is fabulous.....👍I don't believe they are still active....?Thuchan has one of their TONEARM PODS...immensely heavy 💪I think it is made from cast-iron 🤔But I've never seen their turntable bases before....That company realised that w...

The flywheel, platter/plinth, & tonearm tower are on the same platform, while the motor is on a separate platform.Well done @boxer 🤗Would love to know your System....?

I echo Lewm's comments re the Helix TTs.Mark Doehmann's design is innovative and unique. Way cool. I have heard them a number of times and they are exceptional. I have also met Mark twice. He is totally open to sharing his extensive knowledge abou...

Keeping the two parts still relative to each other isn’t easy. Perhaps not.......But certainly not impossible 🤗

By the way, smart guys (Atma-sphere, Richard, and Mark) can differ in opinion, which does not make the persons on the other side of the argument "amateurs".Please don't ask me to explain the difference between 'Professional' and 'Amateur' in relat...

Sorry Halcro, you fail to understand that both can be true.Duuuh.....🤪You surely don't imagine for a second @dover that I could be advocating for an armboard to be 'moving' in relation to the platter....?As you rightly surmise....Dohmann claims to...

The mounting of the platter bearing in the plinth will be thus coupled as rigidly as possible to the mounting of the tonearm. If it is not, any vibration at all can be interpreted by the pickup (arm and cartridge) as a coloration.That's the advice... 
Not much talk about Yamaha turntables.
why didn’t Micro build DD tables of this quality level under their own name?I don't think Micro Seiki were big enough to invest vast sums in the DD Motor technology that Panasonic, Victor, Pioneer, Kenwood or other Japanese 'Giants' could.Bear in ... 
Not much talk about Yamaha turntables.
but I sense a certain discomfort in your words.With good reason @edgewear.....This has all been discussed multiple times over the years but obviously to no-one's benefit.@theophile is frustrated and it's not only this Subject that keeps raising it... 
Soundsmith - Thank you to everyone.
A couple of years ago, I sent my beloved SONY XL-88 MC CARTRIDGEto Peter to see if he could repair my cantilever, bent due to the idiotic design of the Sony stylus guard (no...I'm not accepting blame for this 🤪).After many weeks and unanswered Ema... 
Hear my Cartridges....🎶
I was wondering how you were going with your LDR @bydlo...?It is important though, with the loading down at 15K Ohms....that the Capacitance is raised significantly to approx 430pF.If you only load to 15K without adding Capacitance......the sound ...
