I have used the ISONOE isolators and I have started to use them in the consoles I build instead of the rubber straps I used in the past, I have found them extremely good at isolating turntables. I did some rough tests using a twin 18" bass bin (check Special.K's review at the bottom of the linked page).

http://www.48records.com/turntables/...ing_system.htm

Please note, I am the Australian distributor for ISONOE but I am not a corporate puppet this is my personal opinion.

Isolation feet

I use these at fabric on all the turntables along with the sorbathane pads and have to say these are PHAT.Wherever i work i do spec these to know the decks are properly isolated releases a lot of pressure off me during the night.(If u have heard fabric`s system you will know what i mean). I have had alot of comments and interests from DJ`s from around the world, as far as a few have said they have bought them for their studios.
I highly recommend these for any place that uses turntables as far as i actually carry 2 sets around with me when i work elsewhere.
Try them you will love them.Peace

If you want Isonoes I think that one of the Sound Investment principles is the US source... (you may also be able to get in contact through Todd at www.oomllc.com -- I think he knows the US distributer personally IIRC)

Yeah I know they are for thew same purpose. I was just too lazy to get in to why I want the isonoe's specfically.

Basically 2 of my 3 tt's are in a coffin, and the third sits behind the mixer, the only thing that would work for me is the Isonoe's because they REPLACE the standard feet on the tt's and are exactly the same size..... the otheres that were recomended sit UNDER the original feet and I don't think they will fit in the coffin and if they do fit you would'nt be able to close the lid. Thats not going to work.

these isolators do not work if in a case/cabinet that mechanically shorts feedback energy into the plinth of the turntable.
they are feet and designed for either the bottom of the cabinet or on a free standing deck.
hope this clarifies.

we had vibration problems with one deck on sat and had i have heard that this method works well...does it matter which type of elastic used? wide or thin? many or only a few?

try to get elastics that are about 1/4'' wide and use an equal amount on each roll of tape i find rolls of packing tape and duct tape are good(full rolls for stability) 16 elastics on each roll evenly spaced should do it ive used this system in many setups when travelling and it worked great for feedback supression

I'm using Isonoes on my listening deck(s), and they work great. And the sexy look is a nice bonus

However, all the rubber bands on one of my sets (I've got two slighly different sets of Isonoes) has developed cracks, and now two of the bands have snapped! Strange thing is that the oldest set (it has red bands and a matte finish) is 100% fine. The newer black bands, OTOH...

Virak,

Being based in the UK, I've taken the liberty of PM-ing you some info that should be of use. Check your PMs.

theres also the rla method of suspending turntables using a platform and hooks with elastics this works the best imo

I like big-celled bubble wrap. I just put a couple layers of that under all equipment.

I always travel with eight (8) squash ball halves. Just put them under the turntables' feet and hum & rumbling in most cases disappear. Its also very light and compact. All 8 pieces easily fit into any record bag.

Fred is right. The elastic bands work the best. On my portable consoles I was able to build a lock system that would lock the suspenion up durring transport. I use to take the bolt out of the turntable foot then bolt the turntables right to the suspention table. The only problem was if you dropped the console holding sideways the tee nut could pull out of the turntable then you were replaceing the arms due to damage. HAHAHA!. Happened plenty of times with me. Always had 6 to 12 arms in stock. Anyway this worked great and was a good design. Just had to carry the console upright. I have built booths on top of stages with subs built in them there was so much presure when you brought up the subs, it felt like it was lifting you off the ground, but the turntables never fed back. I don't know about Richards idea, but the way I came up with it was back in the 70s when I hung a console from bungees. What a trip HaHa, but it worked. It's a simple design but affective.
Just my thoughts,

animal
