Tweaks and Gimcracks
DIY isolation platforms for the OPPO Blu-Ray player and the Pro-Ject Turntable. The platforms are 18"x18" concrete pavers sitting atop Penn Elcom rubber Isolation feet.
In the case of the OPPO it did nothing positive or negative to the sound or picture. The turntable it did help the sound in the respect that the sound is more defined at higher volumes. There seems to be less smear and the sound is more "focused" for the lack of a better description.
DIY Isolation Platforms for LCR speakers and the Definitive Technology PF-15 Subs.
18"x18" Concrete Pavers resting on Penn Elcom Rubber Isolation Feet.
Tactile Transducer Shaker Platform for first row of seating.
Double ¾ Inch MDF Glued and Screwed together. Resting on Penn Elcom Rubber Isolation Feet (18)
SVS SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation system on the Rhythmik F18's Subs
DIY’ed Cable elevators.... not for any expected improvement in the sound, but to display my speaker cables :-)
I added a turntable clamp/weight and replaced the supplied felt mat with a nice new cork mat.
Each one of these turntable tweaks made an incremental improvement (at least perceived improvement) in the sound I was getting from the turntable.
