I’m pretty new to all of this - tweaking at least. What are isolators isolating, vibrations from the floor or air? Or both? A new to me PSA P5 just arrived, and of course I am thinking of power cords from the P5 to my amp, etc. Then I read about putting isolators under them. On it goes.
I have not been too concerned about vibrations, at least from the floor, because my system sits in a “nook” in the wall next to a brick chimney with the front edge of the shelf in the nook supported by brick tied into the chimney brick that sits on the concrete foundation one floor below. The P5 will sit in the “wood box” cupboard under the nook, not on the same brick, so I plan to put isolators under it.
However, I am wondering about my turntable. It is not a heavyweight. As stated, what it sits on is a shelf on the chimney brick. But, I just got new to me Ohm Walsh 4 speakers that I certainly feel through more than my feet.
The question is this - will isolators help the turntable with the vibration from music that I can feel in my chest, stomach, and eyeballs? Corollary question - dust cover up or down?
Damn those speakers anyway. (Love ‘em. Was playing a Soul Jazz New Orleans Funk album loud one night and a bat started flapping against the window like a moth.)
thanks in advance for your thoughtful replies.
