turntable skipping with footsteps


Amongst all the expensive turntables around which are likely to skip with footsteps on a house with wood flooring..
Once own a basis table and was skip free even with jumping on hardwood floor
How do you fixed it other than a wall shelf...

I settled my LP12 down with Aurios and I added a brace under the floor. ut the Aurios seemed to do the most.
Seems you already know the solution!
I have had several turntables, and I have found that floor and rack made more difference than anything. I would say to go with a piece of equiptment that sounds as good as possible and then get a rack which is as stable as possible. Some floors just will never be stable at all. I had a SOTA which you could jump next to, and now I have an LP!2 which is quite sensative. Personally, the arm and cartridge I have (benz ace/rega) I am sticking with the Linn because I simply spent the requisite money on a great rack. It is still effected, but is much better. I am happier with the sound overall, so it is a trade off.
I had a spring-suspended and could not cure the problem. It was only resolved when I went to a non-suspended table.
Hello Umaasa, you may want to read Halcro's excellent post on turntable feedback. Could you narrow down or give more info on where you're at or looking for?
i could not walk across the floor without the skipping problem on my lp-12 then i put up a target wall shelf and not only did the problem stop completely. i mean i can jump up and down on the floor now and nothing happens, but the sound got so much better also
I had same experience as Wwshull. The target wall mount shelf solves the problem with the lp-12. I don't think you can use an lp-12 on a wood floor, unless the floor is heavily braced and the turntable "stand" is directly on a support pillar.
Yet another reason to not buy a Linn turntable.
I solved my footstep problem in my listening area w/a Ginko isolation platform. Now I can dance!
Consider applying a couple of 4x4 planks upright beneath the floor (in the basement/room underneath the room with teh turntable). If these are measured correctly so that they barely fit (you have to kick them into place), they can solve a lot of the footfall issues.

I opted for a wall mount and found it easier to set up than I expected and I've no issues.
Do wall-mounted shelves work that well in those wooden houses in the US? I'd imagine the vibrations would get into it either way. 
Even 11 years after this thread was kaput, yes, a wall shelf (e.g., Target) does work decently well even in "wooden houses".  The trick is to select a weight-bearing wall for mounting.  Most wooden houses built in the last 40-50 years in the US have steel I-beams internally that stabilize the main structural elements.
I have a Sound Anchors equipment stand that I had built for my preamp and turntable, both on an anti-vibration platform.

But that did not stop problems with foot falls on a hardwood floor (although it did help the sound otherwise- better bass and smoother sound at high volumes). Foot falls were solved by installing a set of Aurios Pro bearings beneath the equipment stand. Aurios is gone now, but there are other bearing systems that would do the job nicely.
