The Cloud 9S™ vibration control platform (model code 9S) was designed specifically for the popular VPI Scout/Scoutmaster turntable. The shape of the platform base follows the contour of the Scout/Scoutmaster plinth. It also features a separate plate for the motor to isolate motor noise from the plinth. The placement of the dimples allows many combinations of ball positions to accommodate weights ranging from the Scout to the Scoutmaster with Super Platter.
In all three models of the Cloud 9 series, the balls support the bottom side of the plinth for a lower profile. The silver cone feet will go through the four corner holes and be lifted off the shelf, further isolating the plinth from shelf vibration. For high performance and safety, the base has the same double thickness as the Cloud 11™, which prevents the balls from rolling off the dimples.
