Again very disturbing marketing. Speakers can certainly get floor resonances going and they will do it solidly connected to the floor or not along with resonances in the ceilings, windows, walls and so forth. Just play a bass heavy number and put your hand on the wall and you will feel it resonate. All this resonance alters the frequency response of the system and is best corrected by room control not these feet which are terribly non specific and unpredictable even though they are specified for certain weight ranges. With a good room control system you can see exactly what is happening and correct it exactly. The feet are stone age technology. Yes, they might change the sound but there is no way you can tell if for better or for worse. Get a calibrated measurement microphone and an impulse testing program and you can see exactly what they do which will be not a whole lot. When you see the frequency response of your system in your room you will probably get nauseated.
MC, have you tried the GAIA footers or are you just blowing smoke up our a**? I ask because the GAIA II are being used under my GE Triton Reference speakers and it was well worth the $600.00 for my speakers. Bass tightened up a lot and the bass was already tight and the mid bass is much better. Unless you have actually used those footers, your statement has a lot of holes in it.

Here's what I said, word for word, in full:
If you can afford it, Townshend Podiums are a lot better. See the recent threads where guys went from Gaia to Podiums.
Did you read the threads? Maybe you should. Before spouting off. But then you would have to read people who actually compared said Townshend are a lot better. Which is what I said. Which is based on what they said. Read it and weep.
Now my question to you is, have you compared? Or are YOU just blowing smoke up our a**?
