Why should I be using Sorbothane feet?
We recommend you use these on any “spinning disk device”. This includes CD, DVD, Vinyl, and even something with a hard drive like a video recorder. The spinning motion of these devices can cause some mild vibrations and shuddering, which can cause jumping or skipping in your sound. As well as this, it helps prevent any skipping from outside vibration sources, such as a heavy footed person walking past the system, as the feet act as suspension for the unit.
My unit already has feet, why should I use these over them?
The feet most units come with tend to be cheap nowadays so that the company spends the least while earning the most, while other feet don’t have any suspension properties and are there just to prevent scratches or marks to both the bottom of the unit and the top of whatever you place it on.
