Thread: Minus K Isolation Platform BM-8

    Minus K Isolation Platform BM-8

    Minus K Isolation Platform BM-8
    I have just been to a HIFI Show with the Minus K isolation table in action and was impressed in what it will do and would like one for my turntable.Apart from enabling you to listen to your music during an earthquake and the logic of minimizing vibration through your cart I haven't found anyone talking about there experience if the have one.Even the Doehmann Helix 1 with Minus K isolation inside.
    So please leave any positive or negative experiences you have had with the Minus K..
    Cheers Stump

    Minus K has proven success and Fremer actually uses one under his Continuum TT.

    I don't have a Minus K, but I have read that it can be very effective. I think one must be careful to balance the load properly on the platform. What kind of turntable do you have, and have you contacted the manufacturer directly to make sure you order the right model for your turntable?

    Anyone tried Minus-K platforms under a preamp or a DAC ?

    Cost wise, it seems to an attractive proposition compared to active isolation tables like Hertzan and Halcyonics.

    Looks like Vertere has a modified version of their own now. http://www.monoandstereo.com/2016/07...io+Magazine%29

    Check out post 574 on this thread, seems like a very good price to performance option:

    I´m unsure which model they´re refering to, probably this one: http://www.speirsrobertson.co.uk/ele...-platfoms.html

    Thanks for the feedback so far.Peter I run a Clearaudio Innovation so sounds ideal for the Minus k.I spoke with the importer so the Minus K Isolation Platform Minus K BM-8 with 50-100 pound (25-50Kg) it the model for me.Thanks Pcoster will read up on the Vertere .Phil the dohmann-Helix 1 is a great idea and the whole system was one of my favorite rooms.
    Cheers Stump

    Depending on your set up you may want to try their products designed to isolate the entire rack. More bang for the buck but you may et some equipment generated vibration so it may not be a panacea.
