Audiophiles deal with this issue at various levels. Even if @phaelax
finds a way to prevent the stylus from skipping as he/she walks around, it does not imply that the stylus will track properly in the record groves. Improper tracking could result in damage to the record grooves or the stylus itself.
Assuming that phaelax can solve the skipping problem AND get decent stylus tracking, then the next level is reducing feedback. The sound vibrations from the speakers in the room can get to the stylus and interfere with the playback. This happens at audio frequencies, not walking person frequencies. A good record player design isolates the stylus from those vibrations with tuned springs, rubber mounts, belts, etc.
Here are the points that I am trying to make:
* Even if the stylus isn't skipping any more, it may still track poorly as you walk around the room, resulting in record damage and a higher potential for stylus damage and wear. Over time, your records may accumulate more than a reasonable amount of pops, clicks, distortion, and other noise.
* The vibration damping that is designed into today's record players is for reducing feedback at audio frequencies, not to stabilize the stylus from skipping as people walk around the room.
I am not trying to turn phaelax into an audiophile. "Dance party vibration damping" (my term) is obviously the first step to solving the stylus skipping problem. My point is that stylus tracking is more than that, and ignoring basic stylus tracking issues may result in increased wear and/or long term damage to phaelax' records (and stylus).
