So there's no issue apart from the issue of heat!
Hi,Rainer Fink - Senior Acoustics Engineer Europe (Marantz):
“The influence of mechanical engineering on sound quality is really underrated, and sometimes called Voodoo”
No he was talking about Hi Fi components…Hi,
If he was talking about speaker driver design, then i can see what he is saying.
Microphony is only an issue for valves. Maybe poorly manufactured equipment where dry joints etc., are an issue. Else, equipment being sensitive to vibration is another subjective foo myth, which adds to the paranoia of audiophiles getting them to worry about stuff, rather than enjoy the music.
Hi,No he was talking about Hi Fi components…
Microphony affects not only valves but all electrical components, particularly where low level audio signals are concerned. Just because you don't want to accept it does not make it ‘foo’. 🙂
Well show me the technical article that states microphony ONLY applies to valves. And not for example….ceramic capacitors……..?Hi,
No problem accepting that it occurs in solid state equipment..... if you have the link to the technical article with a report that demonstrates it exists.
Thanks and regards,

Well I would suggest the onus is on you to support your statement….in contradiction with professional audio engineers!Hi,
You cannot prove a negative, if the positive has not been proven.
The onus is upon you to provide the evidence to back up your statement.
They are not ‘designed for it’….🙄
Microphony in electronic components has been known about for decades and is well documented, (Even Wikipedia has a page on it as it’s that common) however it is very small in solid state and can be virtually eliminated by correct design, (There is a reason Hi-End amps have a heavy solid case with damping feet) so you are not going to be able to hear it as it is dwarfed by everything else in the audio chain. (If you are paranoid just stick a rubber car mat under your components and the job is done)And no ‘proof ‘ for this statement either…so stop hiding behind semantics. 🙂
