I get what you mean about trying to dissipate the energy faster, and i do see the attraction in your concept of expelling it out through a lighter sub-chassis.

Why do you not believe that the platter should act/be designed as a fly-wheel?

I started this turntable thing,by trying to improve my Manticore
Mantra. A kind of Linn clone,it had a glass platter and spotwelded
mild steel subchassis.Used it for years.Hard to beleive now.

Default suspended deck


I read your post about the CD support and suspension.
It seems to be different with vinyl.Every time I reduce the
stiffness of the suspension on my deck,the sonics improve.
Really.Because the stylus is in physical contact with the record,it is
I suppose ,a different situation .The problem is, there is a practical limit to how compliant you can make it.Maybe there is a better
way like your DIY T/T thread ideas.
