I enjoy the sound of my RPM5 when music's on. The rumble can get on one's nerve, but I can live with it until I upgrade to another table. Don't think there's a definitive and simple solution to overpass this problem.
Maybe you are right, but, IMO, why don't try to solve/reduce the problem, if possible?
I think that the Garven's idea about completely isolating the motor from the plinth is the real and final solution, adopted in RPM 9.1, 9.2 and 10.1.
According to your thinking, I'm satisfied of my solution (I don't listen 45 rpm records) and I can live togheter with my "almost 0 rumble" Pro-Ject 1 Xpression.
