Doc bought something similar from China for his PL71. About £30 for 4, iirc...

I don't have any. Got lots of springs though :dance: some monstrously large :dance:

I think the general idea is to get the resonant frequency down to single figures e.g 3 Hertz - need to know the mass of the suspended object to work out which springs to use. You could try bicycle inner tubes and play around with the inflation pressure to achieve similar results.

If only wheels had been square or rectangular :doh: - it would make them easier to use under our gear :lol:

Seen these for sale before.... Not sure why anyone would want to add suspension to a Rega turntable. Essentially making it then have the same issues as an LP12 😆

Try an inner tube, then remove and try solid cones - neither need be permanent but it gives you an idea of whether you need to couple (cones) or de-couple (inner tube).

My experience with Rega t/t is that it needs a relatively light but rigid support. The Quadraspire stands fit the bill (cheap enough s/h) if you don't fancy the idea of the Rega wall shelf (marginally better ime).

I have a set of Boing on my SL1200. I never asked for them. They were a present.
I am quite happy with them, but as always these things don’t always suit everybody.
