Verdier Turntable
« on: 8 Sep 2016, 11:21 pm »
I'm helping a friend install a new cartridge in his Verdier/Morch turntable/tonearm. This turntable was originally on an air suspension table so we used solid footers to couple the table to that platform. He has moved the turntable to a more rigid platform system, Naim Fraim. Which of the Herbie products would be best suited between the turntable and this new platform? The Verdier turntable has a thick granite plinth with the platter magnetically levitated. Thank you.

A search of the archives indicates that four big tall extra firm Tenderfeet might be the best solution.

The metal armboard pilar is rigidly coupled to the granite base. Perhaps a .8mm Grungebuster sheet between the two surfaces may result in additional improvements. Any thoughts on all this?

Four Big Tall Extra-Firm Tenderfoot isolation feet should be ideal under the turntable. Between the armboard pillar and plinth, grungebuster material makes an excellent and beneficial isolation/decoupling interface, whether 0.8mm or 1.6mm-thick, either sheet material or Dots.
