One thing I think I expressed at the beginning is that isolation feet (a la Stillpoints) for the TT itself may be in order, but my untrained opinion is that expensive feet for the plinth (and Herbie's is within reasonable IMO) would not be worth it as I'm looking to have something kind of cool looking at low cost, and to do something with this remnant vs. a tweak or improvement to the sound. Of course, going backwards sound-wise would be a deal killer.

Got the music box mechanism today, and while I didn't really have any time, I did try it on a neoprene desktop blotter and it was appreciably louder vs. unattached. More to experiment with and to learn...
The feet that come stock on your Rega are the best ones...my recommendation is: DO NOT mess with the feet for the turntable itself, ‘cause if you think you know more about what are the best components to be used for your Rega P8, you don’t know more than Roy Gandy. I had a three-hour long Zoom call with Roy and his team discussing turntable design when I wrote the P10 review. It would also take me about three hours to tell you about the incredible lengths that they go to to be sure that every single part on that turntable is exactly the right one for the job.
