RE: Looking for Ideas and Advice on DIY Component Suspension

Hi Jim,

I had a long conversation the other day about this type of vibration control concept. The notion of a suspended component including the ultimate suspension idea of using magnets in order to suspend a device in the air. While this method isolates the device from a rack shelf, the device is still vulnerable to airborne and self-generated resonances/vibrations. The other aspect of a suspended component by a strap attacked to the ceiling is the component is now coupled to the ceiling with its own vibration control issues,some which can be much more vs. a rack shelf. This aspect also provides no option to custom tune a component while affected by gravity and natural sounding resonances rather than letting a device resonate freely within the air with perhaps a harsh or dull sonic coloration as a result, among other things.

Does your system involve the very thick maple boards and massive brass footers shown in the image?

Cheers, Duster
