When machine was placed on the concrete floor the RMS went up to 20mm/s
Can you clear your mailbox.
Standard platform still available for free trial.
When I was at Garrard the only way to get a reliable measure for rumble on non-suspended decks was to use a huge crude version of this sort of device. Without the rumble measurement picked up traffic driving by 4 floors down across the carpark, as well as everybody walking in the lab.
I am not surprised the isolation removed a lot of warmth since this is a characteristic of no isolation, the lack of mechanical isolation results in the re-pickup of environmental sounds and vibration as a sort of added lower frequency reverberation, which can sound nice, and be great for bass lovers but is not on the record.
If there is a clearly audible difference which does not show up in your measurements, you are measuring the wrong parameters.

chris( very nice chap ) sent me one of these very nice looking plinths today for a home loan , which was nice as all other dealers i spoke to about isolation platforms want your credit card before they send you anything to try out Very nicely built and looks nice , standard wood plinth version oak finish matches my rack floor & speakers exactly
tried with my Dcs cd & Marantz bluray , both sounded better seems to work even when placed right next to my speakers on the floor & cranked up very loud with some deep techno
noticed increase in low level detal , with better separation & will try it tomorrow under my TT & Pre amp and maybe some of the heavier units with double plinths for my mono blocks , wonder what there higher spec units SE & REF & acyrlic versions sound like , will be a keeper i think this one
just to add to this thread
Kris very kindly delivered a PAB rack to my house
so far i'm very impressed with the build and sturdy nature of it and it definitely makes a statement visually
price compares very very favourably to other similar large footprints racks from the likes of Finite Elemente and SRA
rack looks great great rich very nice set up
could i ask a question , tron seven always wanted to know how they sounded also shilabe MC worried about record damage at 3gms tracking
look like a match made in heaven , Nb rugs ties the room up nicely
Standard PAB Platform review in July/August HiFi+ Magazine with some new interesting facts!
you have pm chris. Ta
I was so impressed with the rack that Kris took the demo one I bought back and I ordered 2 custom built racks to my chosen specification. They look great, sound great, very well built and unlike 95% of racks out there, they are perfect for large footprint equipment.
No affiliation, no trade links, no hidden agendas .... just a happy customer and a great person to deal with.
