Vibration isolation system for turntable?

Recommended Posts

My turntable (AT-LP120) sits atop an IKEA Kallax with records underneath. When I walk anywhere near the thing, vibrations can be heard through my speakers, so obviously it's effecting the sound quality at least a little. Plus it's annoying.

Anyone here have something that will dampen the vibration? Do you own a product that does this (special feet for the turntable/isolation pad) that you'd recommend? Links please!

be carful what you buy .. dont buy a "1 size fits all" product .. it needs to be loaded correctly . my whole setup (turntable table, amps, speakers and cabinet) are all isolated from the floor, i then have the tuntable isolated from the cabinet so i get minimal transfer from the book shelves to the arm ... you know its isolated right when it feels like a big wobbly mess lol ... i had a quick look and for your TT you will need 4 mounts that can take 8lbs per mount ...

 

i use these for my turntable but they are hefty https://www.solid-tech.net/product/discs-silence-4pack/ 

you would be able to find something cheaper .. just make sure the loads are correct
