Anyone here use air bearing tonearms?

Reason I ask in this forum is Im looking to get an air bearing tonearm for my turntable. I've read some suggestions on building a resevoir tank near the turntable and leaving the air pump in another room. The reason is to isolate the sound generated by the airpump and the smooth out the airstream to the air bearing tonearm.

I've heard some suggestions of building tanks using PVC pipes and brass fittings found at Home Depot. But there are no details.

Anyone with Air Tangent or Eminent Technologies tonearm with experience building an air reservoir?
