Hi Duster. Any initial impressions of the indian rosewood as platforms...:) Btw...I am thinking of something of similar hardness as speaker platforms. Your thoughts? Thanks.
I like the Sheesham / Indian Rosewood platform after adhering a set of 40mm x 10mm Carbon Fiber Discs with anti-skid pads under it. Prior to that, the stock rubber gripper pads made the effect sound dull, not lively. The sonic signature of the wood is on the warm side of neutral, which is a good thing for use with a solid state preamplifier, IME.
Hi Duster. Appreciate your update. I recall that you recently tried walnut tonewood as platforms too. If I may, how do they compare to the Sheesham? From the mids on down to bass, which has more density and heft? Thanks again.
If you are seeking a loudspeaker plinth, that's a different animal than a component platform. If you seek more density and heft from the use of a loudspeaker plinth, granite would likely be a better option than a wooden plinth.
