Yes, I tried some small sorbothane discs under the motor, they were better than the standard feet but I liked the points better. It may well depend on the turntable stand, I use a Star Sound rack and everything is designed to transfer any vibrations out of the system as quickly as possible. I also use a TNT stand with a maple cutting board sitting on it resting on either cones or FIM rollers. My thoughts on this run this way, using the points transfers the motor vibrations to the stand, either of which is quite rigid and massive, where they should have little effect. Putting a soft object under the motor prevents its vibrations from reaching the base but keeps them in the motor where they are transferred by the belt to the platter,where they are more likely to interfere with playback. I prefer the former but , as they say, milage may differ.
