Seeing if you could help me. I will be purchasing a pair of Target Audio HR70 monitor stands. Since they'll be going on a hardwood floor, I was also going to purchase Target Audio's 'Floor Protection Discs' to protect the floor. Is there a cheaper alternative -
Like chayro said, the Herbie Gliders are great and allow movement of the speakers with ease, I have not found anything better under my Wilson Sophia's floor spikes. they also have them in three different metals, mine are brass, the cheapest of the three.
I have seen quarters used with great success. I realize they are 25 times as expensive of that of the pennies. But they do hold their value! In seriousness, I think the thicker coin helps, definitely worth the investment to try before you buy the Targets.
go to a local machine shop and get them to cut and dimple some brass round stock cost next to nothing compared to other options and serves the same purpose. pennies and such can leave rings in your floor from the raised edge.
