Vibraplane question


I just got a used 2210 passive version from an auction here on Audiogon. No manual came with it. Can anyone tell me if I am supposed to pump it up first and then sit the tt on top?

How do you know when you have put enough air in it? Is there a relief valve to guard against over pressurizing?


You can pump it up first or the other doesn't matter. Really important is:
NEVER move the VP when the feet are filled. You will damage the hoses and a feet can loose air.
You can pump it up until you feel the resistance in your pump, then it is done. It depends a bit on the overall loading weight, but it is pretty simple.
The last time I filled mine is 3 moths ago, one move with the pump, that's it normally.
place your tt on it , then pump it up (use a bubble-level to make sure the platform is level if weight is skewed towards one side or another).

top of platform should be just slightly less than fully extended.
don't worry abt over pressurizing.
If you send me your email I'd be glad to email you a copy of the manual. The correct height once pumped up and your component sitting on the VP is 33/4 inches.

Thanks for the offer. I will shoot you an email at Sounds of Silence. I was just about to order from you when this never used Vibraplane came up on auction. I couldn't pass up since funds are somewhat an issue and it was a great deal.

Enjoy your Vibraplane, glad you got one at a nice price. I'm actually surprised we don't see more on the used market with now over 6500 sold!
Happy listening,

With the Vibraplane loaded, the top should be 3 3/4" above the table top as Steve mentions. I cut a wooden block that is 3 3/4" high and I just use that to guage the proper height. Performance will improve if your total load is close to the 275 lb maximum design load for the unit. Congratulations. These are excellent products.
