It was explained to me that no matter what moves and shakes, your tables will never skip...crazy concept to me, but suposedly it work
    I have a target rifle that works on a similar principal, the barrel floats in the stock and the world moves around it. Works great! As long as the I-Beam is stiff enough to not resonate to the beat.

    Here in SF, most DJs are spinning CDs or Traktor these days. I guess also that the ground isn't the most stable thing you could possibly attach your decks to in this wonderful earthquake zone 8-)

    Cool

    Club Scorpio simply makes a pile of cinder blocks on the stage any time a DJ sets up. We're talking a 4x4x8 ft stack of cinder blocks! But it's got so much mass, it never moves no matter how loud it gets. Cheap, low-tech solution, but it works. (I was amazed the first time I saw it. Those turntable needles tracked perfectly!)

    We have to do that here at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland. They have so many bass bins under the stage, cinder blocks are the only thing that will cut it. (flying the DJ table would normally work, but the Crystal is a historical building so it has very limited rigging points)

    A whole other story is what I have to go through to put two 12' projection screens in the place.
