Vibration Insulation For Hifi Components & Turntable

Hifi component & turntable vibration dampers
Vinyl has made a huge comeback in recent years. Many record companies not only offer albums through various streaming services, but also release them on vinyl. As a result, also many turntables (record players) are sold, from high-end to budget turntables. But when it comes to acoustics, budget turntables can often be improved. How to do that? Read about it in the article below.
Hifi Dampers

Which requirements does a good turntable need to meet?

High-end turntables are made from 'exotic' and heavy materials and easily weigh at least ten kilos. The materials that are being used ensure that resonance has no chance of causing additional noise during the playback of records. This noise may be experienced as banging and rustling, causing the music to sound a bit 'messy', so to speak. After all, the turntable stylus is a sensitive instrument that move at the slightest vibration, which obviously is not supposed to happen.

How can I improve the playback of records?
Below we will describe several tips to (audibly) improve a turntable of a budget brand. The expected result is that the reproduction of music will sound cleaner and less messy.

  • Tip 1
    Improve the furniture (if you do not already have Hi-Fi furniture). An explanation of this can be found on the tips page "Acoustic Improvement for Your Hi-Fi Furniture".

  • Tip 2
    Setting up the turntable vibration-free. Resonance that travels through your furniture to the turntable, for example coming from other audio components like speakers or walking sound can negatively affect the tonearm of your DJ set. By applying Hifi Dampers, resonance is optimally being neutralised. The relatively soft dampers cause a seperation between the furniture and the turntable.

If you don't like the green colour of the Hifi Dampers, you can cover them with PU Finishing Tape. This wafer-thin tape of a few microns thick does not affect the vibration insulation and gives the dampers a, perhaps more attractive, black colour.
