Heres how that second one turned out. Looks better really in the flesh. Feet/springs of some kind yet to be added.

Hy Fran, looks great!
What kind of springs did you use? You know I got the drive tight on the chassis of the player. Before, I felt some vibrations, after nothing. It feels like a solid block. 20kg of iron and leadbitumen. And to me it felt like it could not be bettered. Special the pinpoint and the placing of the individual instruments in the space.
But as a diyer it never stops, the tweaking! Did you use also the rubber washers? Thanks for your answer, Teake

The springs were just a quick experiment - more work has yet to follow. But FWIW, the springs were about 1" diameter, and about 2-3" tall uncompressed. They compressed by about half when 4 went under the baseplate. The whole thing was pretty "rocky" - like a LP12. But this was just really quick just sat the plate on the 4 springs I had.

I have yet to try things like damping the springs (my own shiga has damped springs) and better placemtent. Also want to try some ceraballs as well.

I don't have photos, but really they were just 4 springs and the CDP sat on top of it.

Yesterday I tried a 12V battery instead of the transformer and as with the laboratory PSU I couldn't hear any difference. Now I think that maybe the 7808 I used has a dominant "signature" that causes its input source to become rather irrelevant. To test if this hypothesis is correct I will use the lab PSU adjusted to 8 V to feed the mechanism directly soon.
