Springs under turntable
My turntable and monoblocs are on springs. When I added them to the phono-preamp, I lost bass response. Frequency response tilted up in the mids. No resonant drone or rumble. Replaced with metal cones and all returned to normal.

I use carriage bolts too. See my virtual system. 
why a 75 dollar blue ray smokes all 2k CD players and any turntable???
I'll never forget a 1987 demo of a cheap CD player with an Oxford Acoustics table with Air Tangent arm and Koetsu Rosewood, a Radford tube amp (IIRC) with $60 Wharfedale Diamonds. Night and day. The relatively expensive turntable made the speakers...
