dh cones on Neuance platforms

I bought a Marantz SA-14 to replace my old Krell. I loved the full exciting sound of the SA-14, but it lacked the resolution of the inner detail that the Krell provided.

I then got the Neuance platform and the inner detail came forth in spades.
Ken, of Neuance said some people also use the dh cones with his platforms.

Has anyone tried this combination, and what was the outcome?
I recommend DH Cones with my platforms to customers; the DH Cones apparently improve the effectiveness of whatever they support. The DH Cones seem to be more efficient than other similar feet at allowing "residual vibration" in the system to exit rapidly. The extreme hardness of the DH Cones material, NASA grade ceramic (next hardest substance to diamond), probably has something to do with it. In addition, DH Squares (graphite composite) squeeze a little more out of the system when placed under the DH Cones. Is there no end to all this?
DH Cones were one of Ken Lyon's suggestions as possible candidates for supports to be used under my Neuance platforms. They are probably very effective. But, it seemed to me that the footer material used under the platforms were only important if coupling was made to whatever was underneath. Then, sonic signatures of materials will apply and testing is necessary to reveal a preference. In my mind, I felt that to allow the Neuance platforms to perform optimally would require isolation measures. If you can believe that unwanted vibrational energy moves away from the component toward the center of the Neuance to be dissipated, then isolating this event from the environment is needed. This train of thought renders the shelf structure irrelevent to getting the most out of your components. My solution was to put the Neuance on top of Aurios MIBs on top of upturned BDR cones resting on my shelf. It All dissappears and leaves nothing to think about, except enjoying the music.

Just my thoughts. I am sure Ken Lyon can provide you with more sophisticated reasoning behind a successful set up.

He had suggested that I might possible use them under my SACD player resting on top of the Neuance plaform.

He provided the spikes to be used under his platform. He said it may or may not improve the sound.(but would probably me the unit less stable.)

Richard, I am sure that Ken's suggestions are directly in response to your specific requirements. Proper component coupling to the platform will provide the pathway that the Neuance relies upon to perform effectively. I think that is why what is under the platform isn't as critical. Basically, the positive effects have already taken place. For my situation, I needed to try decoupling everything from my shelf.
The previous Neuances were voiced to sit atop upturned cones or better-yet "spikes" fastened to/through your shelving. Ken generally recommends using the component's stock feet ABOVE the Neuance to avoid a spectral shift, unless wanted. Now his thicker Neuances are voiced to NOT require the bottom-spiked isolation, for greater convenience. he claims they're even quieter. I might try one, as I've been VERY happy with the Alpha and Betas I use under my CDP, pre and next my flimsy-cabineted MD100 tuner. Where I couldn't risk tapping small upturned screws into inner shelves, such as the finished TOP of my furniture rack, I use short, upturned cones, so the newer stand-alone version may be in order.
