From Websters: "air mass isolation device" (noun) - chunk of wood with metal spikes on the bottom. Sometimes stained so it doesnt look just like a chunk of wood with spikes on the bottom, but an EXPENSIVE chunk of wood with spikes on the bottom.


Alright, maybe thats not exactly right, but im still at work and cranky =)

Works for me twop...provided your quoting from Webster's unabridged version. What about a painted (versus stained) inexpensive chunk of wood with expensive spikes on the bottom?

Cheers.

If I recall correctly he opted for the cheap, stained piece of wood with a tire innertube. I find it VERY hard to believe that will make a cd sound better, but at least he didn't pay hundreds of dollars to find out.

Yes, its a peice of 3/4 inch birch plywood with "retainer" peices on the outer edges with an innertube in the middle. No, i dont believe it makes much of a difference. I have done listening tests and i coulndt really detect any differences. It certainly didnt sound any worse with it. But it looks cool and it DOES keep vibratings from the floor getting to the cdp. for instance once i set it on top of my sub and played music and you can feel the vibrations on the sub but not on the platform. Now i know ya'll want me to make you one too. sorry im booked till 2007.

My isolation platform how to.

Very nice two-channel system indeed, Brandon!

And you are possibly the first person I know who did bi-wiring with the RadioShack wires. Umm, I like the attitude! HAHAHA...
