But you are quite probably also misleading a lot of people............confidently, but incorrectly.

Cats what is your opinion on the lead ring and a Technics rubber platter mat and the plinth is to be a huge Aus hardwood plinth, any ideas are appreciated (for my Commonwealth of course).

And does this mean that when HiFi World measure the resonances in tone arms with their B&K accelerometer, they do so in a sound proof room, with air pressure regulation, free of air tremour and so forth? I think not!
The tests I do are straight forward to do, anyone could do them, and give good enough results to be useful. Call it pseudo-science if you like, but it is helping a lot of people, who seem happy. I could not wish for more. And I have talked to and helped some very good people, some of whom make HiFi components which have won awards (whatever that means).
