Any US Distributors of Soundeck Vibration Isolation Squares?

It appears they ship direct from the UK. No mention of dealers. Those are pretty small items, shipping shouldn't be very expensive and I don't think there would be any customs charges.

If you want a DIY approach, you can buy Sorbothane sheets of various durometers and thicknesses on Amazon. You can cut pieces to size. The nice thing about Sorbothane is it is not as elastic as other rubbers and absorbs the vibrations and turns them into heat. I have used various pieces in different applications with great results. I even use it in applications like under my bench grinder to isolate vibrations from it from the work bench.

Thank you all. I will go with the Sorbothane.

If you are still looking, I can recommend these products -- good science/physics behind the [isolation] design --

Don't forget these handy items:

I bought an entire box when folks were talking about them. They work pretty well to isolate and reduce vibrations.

Thans for the link. I was looking for isolation feet just yesterday.

Remember that vibration control is a mass-compliance issue. The lower the mass of the part being isolated, the higher the compliance of the absorber must be to lower the resonant frequency. Think of a car suspension where the mass of the car is suspended on springs which are the compliance part and the shock absorbers are the lossy part which converts the motion into heat to prevent repetitive oscillations. For my turntable base, I built an MDF box filled with sand and suspended it on four Sorbothane feet. The resonant frequency of that box with the turntable and the feet is well below the resonant frequency of the arm/cartridge resonance. You can jump on the floor until your feet get sore and the turntable will not skip.
