RE: Walnut Platform with Carbon Fiber Discs

I find bamboo to indeed impart a leaner and "dryer" sonic signature than the warmer sounding tonewoods, so it's not a one size fits all material. However, the choice of vibration control footers can make a big difference when used with a bamboo platform. My choice of walnut is a new one for me, so I can't comment on it yet, but from what I gather it will be a warmer sounding option for use under a DAC, and hopefully less restrained sounding in terms of dynamics than maple, with perhaps a firmer tonality, with more body than acacia wood which may have a lighter touch than walnut. I'll ask the seller what type of walnut is involved, since that factor does matter.
