This is such a trial and error area, as results can be kit and situation dependent.

Your best hope is borrowing a selection from your dealer eg cones (wood and metal) or sorbethane pads.

The best I've come across is Black Ravioli, but it is expensive.

You can experiment with platforms made of wood (Maple chopping blocks) and Granite worktop savers. You can even use a partly blown up inner tube to create an isolation platform.....experimentation is the key. Do a lot of Googling under "isolation of hifi components".

IMO Wood as a platform, gives a warmer more organic presentation, with glass and granite being more forward detailed......but of course, I could just be nuts. :shifty:

I had a problem recently with isolation of my TT. . . . 'me being me', I decided £20-£30 quid was lot when I could make something.

I cut 3, 1.25" squares from a 1" plank of mahogany, drilled a 5mm hole in the middle, taped it out to a 6mm thread. Screwed in a 6mm dumpy spike and a lock nut . . . perfect inverted wood spike support, and they are adjustable. My efforts do not look so posh as the Russ Andrews offering, but then they are out of sight.

Don't go mad spending money on this. There is none to little improvement in my opinion. If you're going down the sorbothane route (which theoretically should dampen) there are many cheap ones on eBay you can try. ;)
