And yet, if it was a "designer" display shelving system from Harrods or some such we would not know of it nor care a jot.

Personally I would either discard any component that was so susceptible to vibration or, in the case of a turntable, put it in another room.

$31k is quite a lot for any table I would have thought.
Boulé, Chippendale et all.

I would imagine many here have spent much more over the years on hifi they no longer own.

Who is saying the thing eliminates vibration anyway, has anyone tested it, another utterly worthless piece of jewellery.
Mine cost me £15, as I said, cheapskate.

A good point. Do we have an over-arching belief that "hifi must be cheap", and that anything that costs more than £X (choose your figure here), must by default be overpriced or foo?

Contrast:

"You've spend ten grand on the holiday of a lifetime? Wow, I bet you must have had a fabulous time!"

or

"You've spend ten grand on a hifi? Oh, I couldn't tell the difference"

I dunno about you, I'm pretty good on sussing the difference between a fortnight in the Okavango Delta and a week at Butlins in Skegness. I don't find the differences between a pair of S/H Mission 753's and some box fresh Harbeth 40.2's, whilst evident, quite so catastrophically polarising.

According to Saint David Attenborough the rainfall would be about the same.

Really, audio has gone insane - they spouted a lot of guff about 're-tooling costs' with incomprehensible promotional verbiage straight out of Pseud's Corner (there's some blurb in the Stereophile coverage of CES on it).

even though "a mechanical engineer and specialist in aerospace vibrational control and control systems", mass and stiffness alone do not guarantee immunity from vibrations.

So to the point. The isolation will only be as good as the box that sit's on it. I would suggest that the moneys in the feet and the casing of the actual audio box, While I know that rack isolation is SO important, what's good for the goose may not be so great for the Gayndah correct?
