Anybody have both Herbie's Cone/Spike Pucks and isoacoustics gaia's


My Spatial Audio X5's sit on pieces of granite which sit on top of carpeting with a concrete floor under all of it. Am very happy with the performance I'm getting now but was thinking of getting some isoacoustic gaia's for my speakers because of all the positive feedback. Never heard of Herbie's audio products before I started in on my research of isoacoustics. I'm wondering if there spike pucks do the same thing as the gaia's do? There pricing is attractive. So I was hoping to hear from someone who may have had both and could give me there feedback.

Thanks, 
Steve

I just purchased the IsoAcoustics Gaia II’s and carpet spikes for my setup.
Got them installed and they are a very nice product and well built. I just couldn’t stand how big they were (I don’t need to see them) plus they raised my speakers 2” higher at their lowest adjustment.
They worked well and seemed keep resonances down a lot. I actually have a couple of songs that I play at a certain level for sampling and once installed they made me want to crank it up about 2-3dB.
While I had those I ordered the Herbie’s spike/sliders (regular size & titanium) which just arrived today so I removed the Gaia’s and put the OEM spikes back in and put the herbie sliders underneath each spike.
Played my normal sample songs and was amazed at how these simple looking little pucks made the music come alive.
I think the IsoAcoustics are nice but they seemed to kill the lively-ness of the room. Some people may like that and may work better but these pucks are staying in my system.

I was skeptical of both products on whether either would help isolate my speakers and stands from a second floor wood subfloor with carpet. They both did but the pucks worked better for me. 
When you see them you think there’s not much to them but once in your head it’s kind of like they’re like little air pockets or shocks. 
They are keepers!
Thanks for this post - exactly my question.  Just ordered the Herbie's as they are 1/3 the cost.  Will post results!
@gdnrbob, point well taken. My apologies. I let my mouth show a disagreement, my apologies. 
Feedback on this, Jerry Ramsey at Audio Magic has been developing novel products from innovative technologies for many years. Whether liquid conductor cables, or products ranging from Audio Fuses to Black Out Paint for circuit boards based on EMI/RFI absorbing materials, these products have been both successful, and to some extent, head-scratchers.

True to form, Jerry's latest creations, called CE Generators ("Clean Energy Generators" - $150 ea. or $399/3) are difficult to understand, but boy do they work.
@nyaudio98 ,
Thanks for posting that.
I hate being the heavy, but do so only when I think a poster will be put off or reluctant to post if they feel they're question isn't 'valid enough'.
I think we are all here to help others and have fun sharing our audio experiences.
