I also added the gingko cloud 11 ( I think it is the 11) and that platform seriously made my system sound so much better. The bass is deeper and more defined, it's such a crazy idea that something like a platform could drastically improve my system, but it really has.
I'm not surprised. The Ginko is something I've got my eye on for future upgrades. The VPI external motors, despite the physical separation, are prone to transmit much more noise than we'd like to admit. When new, my Aries 3 was a bit of a shock when I started with it. It's quietened down a lot since, partly because I keep the motor on a Sorbothane mat. The idea of the Ginko, SDS & single-motor flywheel is very appealing, purely as a strategy towards killing off any residual noises still present. The Cloud 12A has separate isolation platforms for the Aries and its motor so they know something is going on there.
