care given to the vibration problems from the internal drive
motor, friction, external difficulties and in particular sound
vibrations picked up from air as well as ground which may cause
For a CD player, it's the same: the level of vibrations
generated by the motors responsible for the rotation of the
disc, the translation of the carriage-locked diode and the
playhead is large enough to disrupt the entire machine through
complex mechanical and electrical effects.
example, the quartz reference clock that manages the digital
information is inherently an element sensitive to vibrations, as
well as ceramic capacitors for decoupling integrated circuits.'
the Neodio NR 22 CD Player for example, the work of collection
and dissipation of vibrations begins with a mechanical DVD-ROM
which is sandwiched between sheets of PMMA, aka: Plexiglas, and
a damping material that looks very much like cork !

of 8 mm thick in three layers."
