Thanks for the Adobe lead.
Yes, that cabinet does make the brain light up.
There are three primary sources for vibrations:
The Major source is as I've described earlier with regards to why I went with
my Seismatable. It is critical that if one were accidentally bump the table on which the TT is typlically sitting on, chances are, the stylus will jump the track and possibly scratch the record.
The middle source of vibration is vinyl resonance frequency. IF you were to tap the vinyl and record it, with that chart, you might be able to determine the resonant frequency of the record, and perhaps all records of a given speed - 33-1/3, 45, 78 rpms would each have a different and thus their own resonant frequencies. Mind you this is NOT recorded material on the disc. Think of the record as though it were the soundboard to a classical guitar. The luthier taps the soundboard tonewood top to determine it's resonant frequency. When that is known, you can build a cabinet that would isolate those frequencies in order to produce the cleanest sound, possible.
Last but not least are the sounds which are audio-mechanically transferred to and from the tonearm and thus, the cartridge.
Anyway, just my two cents. It's free and worth every cent.
