I had a free source and collected about 30+Kgs and its never shown any signs of rust ... mine was used stuff. Its damn heavy (used some - maybe 2Kgs - on my Technics SL-7 TT cover in a 500ml Island Creamery ice cream tub.) if you go to those big industrial metal factories where the blast stuff maybe can also get for free :P
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

Hi Wiz, how to you find it's effect on a turntable? That's probably the most vibration sensitive component in the entire hifi chain.

Cheers!

Will the steel shots vibrate again each other and produce some sound?

That depends on how much loose intervening space there is..

I find it pretty stable. The technics sl7 I use it on as some lid issues and thiSseems to help calm it down

That’s why I went for the finest, for fear and to prevent noise. No issues so far, 25kg of fine steel shots sitting on the stacked Seatons. No sound

Really the tweak of the year for me!

Bolted! Now that's serious! The weight on your REL is sufficient enough already.. are you thinking of bolting them too?

I can see the others use spikes as well on their subs, works for me too on wooden floor

No bolting but I might add one more sub somewhere to even out the bass even more. Stack maybe.. let’s see :)
