I recently bought an MRX demo rack, and have the M3X2 on the top two shelves. I had previously had my AMG Giro turntable on a very solid MapleShade oak rack. Moving to the HRS provided noticeable improvement in SQ but not earth shattering. I have my Phono preamp on the next shelf with same platform. I even bought the nimbus footers and their damping plates for it as well. Adding those accessories to the preamp had minimal improvement over the M3X2 platform alone. I have older S series platforms on bottom two racks. I really can’t say if you will hear a noticeable improvement moving to the M3X2 platform from your E series. The E series look well made and I think any difference in sound depends on your current turntable. Some respond to this vibration control better than others. If you do decide to upgrade, I got a very good discount on the platforms from JS Audio in Bethesda, MD. They have them shipped directly from HRS or they may have a demo in house.
