Playbase + UST Projector - Too much vibration?

I'm thinking of getting an Optoma GT5500+ ultra short throw projector and am wondering whether having it sit on a Playbase would be OK? Would there be too much vibration?

I'm also considering a Playbar or Beam, but in terms of how much space I have on my TV unit, the Playbase would be a better-looking option. Anyone have any insight to share or experience with a UST projector sitting on a Playbase?

Thanks!

I would think there would certainly be vibration... how much vibration would likely be dependent on the sound of what you're watching (lower bass would likely cause more noticeable vibration)... whether it would be noticeable or not would probably depend on the projector. Since it's an ultra-short throw, there isn't much magnification over distance like a regular projector, so it may not be as noticeable as a regular projector would be.
