    Turntable Isolation platform DIY

    I use an Auralex Gramma Amp platform $89 from Store dj with my Wilson benesch, I’ve tried various DIY and bamboo blocks & none have worked as well, they also make one for turntables at double the price but it seems to be made the same with the same materials, isolates extremely well

Built about 7 years ago by a friend who passed them onto me. Shame I've had more interest in those than the Whise, killer sound , $1500 they're yours, bring a small van and get set for divorce
