Re: filmscanners: My replacement 8000 is banding like the first one :-(
I don't know how heavy the ED 8000 is, but these days most electronics
have minimal heft to them and aren't very solid.
I have found that as a result, using a solid platform for devices like
film scanners might help them to be less likely to create sympathetic
vibration in the shelf or table they are on, which might just cause a
feedback vibration situation.
I have certainly found that film scanners when placed on hollow metal
platforms resonate making the beast sound even more noisy then they tend
to on their own, and I could literally feel the vibration they created
