Tube Socket Mounting - rigid or floating
I recently scrapped some old reel to reel tape recorders for parts and found some of the tube sockets were mounted suspended in a floating (vibration resistant?) setup.
Wondering why this was done and does it make sense in the tube amps us geeks are putting together today ?
A 300B power tube in a floating socket ?
What do you think?
Reduces microphonics of course;)
I'm planning to suspend my preamplifierboard as well.. It has also been done in delicate measuring equipment..
I wouldn't use any other method for stage gear, but for home audio, it's a matter of taste, IMO.
