The Cloud 9A™ was designed for the VPI Aries turntable. The platform base follows the contour of the Aries plinth, with an extended motor plate to accommodate the flywheel motor.
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.
