Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This fixed most of my turntable concerns
The Auralex ISO-Tone turntable isolation platform is specifically engineered to decouple your turntable from the supporting surface it rests on for greater sonic purity and accuracy.
We love it when simple ideas turn out to be effective. And that's what the Auralex ISO-Tone turntable isolation platform is in a nutshell — simple and effective. Just place the ISO-Tone platform under your turntable, and this sound-absorbing sandwich of cloth-wrapped MDF and Auralex's proprietary sound isolation foam will protect it from unwanted vibration coming from the equipment rack, desktop, or DJ case it's resting on.
Why is that important? Because vibration that reaches your turntable diminishes its sound quality, and can even cause unwanted acoustic feedback. The ISO-Tone is specially designed to keep vibration at bay, ensuring you'll enjoy all of the focus, detail, and clarity your turntable is capable of.

This fixed most of my turntable concerns
Great item that does exactly what it says it will do. Looks very cool as well. Best price by far that I have seen on the internet for this item.
Works surprisingly well. The only thing I could find to decouple a turntable from the cabinet it is sitting on. Expensive but you get what you pay for.
The Auralex ISO-Tone does a very good job of reducing room vibrations and decoupling my Pro-Ject Carbon Esprit turntable from the shelf that it rests on. My turntable rests on a bar in a high traffic area of my house, and I have noticed a strong improvement in the reduction of vibration related noise and skipping while listening to my LPs. My only complaint is that it is fairly overpriced for what it is (carpeted board resting on a foam bottom), however it does the job as advertised.
Pros: Helps reduce vibration induced noise and skipping for turntable, good size
Cons: Overpriced for simple design and materials
Pros: Completely got rid of the insane pulse vibrations coming from my subs.
Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! Keep doing what you're doing. I truly thought there was no way you could get rid of the insane vibrations coming from my subs but you've proven me wrong once again.
I have my turntable next to my subwoofer in my set up , the bass was causing needle jump and skip while playing records. The ISO-Tone pad stopped all vibration and skipping even when bass is turned up load. Worked perfect for my needs.
Pros: Stopped all vibration and skipping
wanted to try out product see what the hype is about. tone arm still jumps/skips although not as much as before. fair product but not really worth the cost.
Pros: little improvement.
Although I felt the price was a bit steep when I placed the order, many other options I researched were even more expensive. This is a heavy, quality built pad that lives up to its advertising in eliminating unwanted vibration. No more stylus skating when I bump the stereo cabinet.
Pros: Eliminates vibration as advertised. Prompt product delivery from Crutchfield.
Cons: A bit expensive, but worth the price.
Really helped in an old ,creaky house.It added a professional look to my listening cave also.Highly recommend.
Works very well to prevent vibration.
Product has solved the problem. The tonearm no longer skips as I walk across the floor.
Well I've read probably way to many things one can do to "improve" the sound of the various components that make up a "stereo /music system. Been reading them since the early 70's. Now any change in said system will produce something different, weather one can hear the difference or perceive the difference, is ----. Now if you want to isolate your 'table from what it's sitting on. This will do it. Meaning if you live close to the street and a garbage truck rumbles buy and the earth shakes. more than likely your stylus will not go skipping across your record. Or if you have young children and they go bouncing across the floor, more than likely your stylus won't go bouncing across your record. Are you gonna hear deeper bass, quieter backgrounds, air between instruments, and all that-- I don't know??? Go buy a maple platform lacquered and finished by Amish furniture makers or a dampened hollow carbon platform that you fill with acoustic sand, spend upwards of 500 bucks and find out. The only thing I can attest to is it's better to have your table on an isolation platform of some kind than not. This works does the job and is cool looking. So you go from there.
Pros: It works and it looks cool
Cons: Not really
This product took away the skips due to walking on the floor around my new turntable. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to reduce vibration due to movement or unstable surfaces.
Pros: Sturdy, well made, just what I needed
It seems to stable the turntable effectively, which has improved the sound.
Pros: Reasonable cost Helps sound
Cons: Still having issues with skipping when I walk across the room.
Although I didn't experience any noticeable sound improvement, I think it makes sense that it will reduce the chance for feedback or rumble during higher volume listening.
Pros: looks good, simple
Cons: price is a little high
As an audiophile, I have learned that adding a few little extra's to ensure good sound quality never disappoints. This little unit "does the job" it was designed to do. I am pleased with the purchase/addition for my vinyl listening pleasure!!
Pros: Simple design with good construction - works as advertised.
Hello I got this platform to improve the sound quality in my 30 year old table
Cons: Material should be made of fabrice that is smooth
Does exactly what it says it will do. I highly recommend this for any Vinyl lover!
You can do Army barrack jumping jacks holding 25 pound weights in each one of your hands in front of this thing and your record will not skip a beat. Bravo!
Pros: All good
Cons: I wish I had more turntables

My turntable is on a glass shelf in a wall unit. The shelf is very stable, but the entire wall unit vibrates a bit at high volumes. I'm hoping this will help isolate the turntable from the vibrations. [ Daniel Jan 25, 2017 ]

Turntable vibration/resonance [ joseph Nov 23, 2016 ]
I bought a very nice, and expensive, Pro Ject turntable. Decided that if I'm going to spend the money on such a nice piece of equipment I should spend a bit more to be sure it's set up right and performs at it's best. [ SHAWN Jun 08, 2016 ]
To stabilize turntable and to amend skipping [ DAVID May 05, 2016 ]
