My question is - Where is the marble slab placed ?I am presently placing my TT on a marble slab. Is it right or is there a better material on which I should put my TT? Kindly help.
And you did use a spirit level, right?How is the level...
Yes, and most llikely No, to your two questions. But you can always experiment, and then, trust your own ears, not those of any of the 'experts'. The 160 is a suspended TT, which is less affected by the supporting shelf, so long as it's reasonably firm.I am presently placing my TT on a marble slab. Is it right or is there a better material on which I should put my TT? Kindly help.
Excellent idea Prem. With SRA, they tend to use wood internally or as a beam structure in their products. Stone bases when combined with compliant rubber and wood have a very different behavior as opposed to being used alone. In the SRA world, the designer has already figured out the correct combination and used the materials in a complete vibrational control system.Hi Shaizada
The SRA team recommends use of sandstone or soapstone. In fact on their Craz rack they use soapstone. I have tried sandstone in the past and unlike other stones has no ringing and also is pretty neutral
Further a 2 inch thick slab should cost you approx Rs 1000. So not very expensive to give it a shot.
Thanks for the suggestions. I will give Sandstone a shot and place me 401 on this as its currently staged on Glass.Soapstone is not available in Mumbai. It's equivalent is sandstone. Either of the stones are fine
Sandstone is available in Santacruz near the airport on the Western Express Highway.
