I would be interested to see the photos. I tend to believe that a proper stand is as much important as the stereo component itself.

Peter,

Four photos of a temporary setup. This optical table is sourced from www.techmfg.com but I bought it from Coherent in USA, without the granite plate. It was heavy anyway. Check with www.coherentinc.com and look around.

Peter & Thomas,

the capture "projects by the fanatics, for the fanatics" truly isn't exagerrated!!! Damn, Thomas, how much did you spend on that table???

Why don't we try to make a frugalphile (tm) approach to vibration control??

edit:/ though my CD player is probably not worth it

Hi Bob,

Around USD 3.000. Money well spent. You ain't heard nothing yet.

Bob,

Pneumatic isolators driven by air support the granite plate on which the transport is placed. A pneumatic isolation system acts as a low frequency air spring supporting an inertial mass. The cd replay system is in part an optical system. If low level micro vibrations are kept away from the reading laser the cd system gets more information and resolution, hence better sound. It is like holding a camera extremely still when taking a photo -- you get high resolution and a sharp image. So stay sharp, people.

Bob et al,

For theory visit www.ealingcatalog.com and choose Preview Catalog. Under Opto Mechanics choose Stands & Isolators and download the .pdf-file.
