Stumbled across this interview with Roy Gandy from Rega. He claims that suspension in turntables was designed to take the bounce off the stacked records that dropped from a changer. Is this really true? I thought suspension had something to do with isolating vibrations during playback? Quote: "On spring suspensions, he said the design began many decades ago when turntables were included in one-box music centres that comprised an amplifier and radio. These turntables could play a stack of records and each time a new record was played, it would drop with a thud and the spring suspension was designed to absorb the impact, he pointed out."
