In this thread I'd like to focus on only the roller type Vibration Isolation Devices (VID). I'm not a big fan of springs, cones, or squishy things, as I now believe them to only be filters, shifting vibration from frequency to frequency with little real attenuation. I can start another thread for that other stuff if anyone is interested… I believe that the roller type devices are qualitatively different, true isolators rather then just filters. I want to share some information I have collected on existing commercial models and DIY designs, so that we can talk about experiences, sourcing, and compare performance. No head in the clouds theorizing here, please, that is for the other (original) thread. There are a number of specialized commercial companies that serve the high mag. microscope, photo lithography, and laser systems, among other fields, with precision vibration isolation devices and systems. One wonders why they don't create products for high end audio uses, unless the audiophile market is too much of a PITA ? Onward...
