Long time listener, first time poster.
After inheriting 200+ LPs from a mate who is sadly departed, I decided to invest a little and purchase some equipment to listen to them. I have a Rega RP1 TT, a vintage Pioneer amplifier (circa 1975 - although am currently saving to upgrade to a Rega Mira amp) and a Pioneer tuner. The amp powers 2 Krix floorstanding speakers (about 15kg each). These components are set up on sturdy wooden shelving (3 shelves high, with a flat base), located fairly close to one of the speakers.
I am keen on using some of your products to dampen any vibration / isolate my components. I have a very old house with bouncy floorboards which carry bass throughout the whole place (even into the backyard!). Ive been scrolling through your circle & looking at your products on your site. I am new to the audiophile world (but loving it), so I have a few questions about the products I figure will help to isolate my components and give me better sound. If you have any better suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it (as a student, I'm on a reasonably tight budget)
For the turntable, I am thinking Isoballs: Do I need to remove the Rega feet?, and would I need 3 or 4 of them? (the TT has only 3 feet).
For the shelf / rack and speakers, I am thinking Fat Dots: Will these lessen the impact of vibration into the rack from footsteps / bass etc? Also is there any other way I can reduce vibration within the rack itself (eg grungebuster dots etc)? - as its located close to one of my speakers.
Finally for the Amp & Tuner, I am thinking Tenderfeet: again, is 3 or 4 preferable?
I know this is a lot of questions, but I really need to reduce the hum and the impact of bass on my listening enjoyment. Your products are very highly rated, and I want to purchase the right gear first off.
