With most DACs, no; Tenderfoot isolation feet will have the advantage.SteveHerbie's Audio Lab
Been there with sorbothane, BDR products and others...no of them are as musically satisfying as Herbies! I hope Steve is making a decent living out of this as he certainly deserves to.
Hi, Greg. Four Tenderfoot isolation feet underneath and damping instruments on the tubes would surely be beneficial, though getting a microphonic reaction by tapping on the circuit board or any part of the component is not necessarily indicative of any extraordinary problem or anything. Tubes, capacitors, and other sensitive electronics will naturally have a tendency to react to tapping, which on a micro-level is like whacking them with a sledge hammer. The preamp certainly is affected by micro-vibrations though, both from the environment and self-generated; better isolation of the component and tubes will bring out more of the preamp's best musical potential.SteveHerbie's Audio Lab
