If you get a bunch of 1" superballs, try this:
Cut three of them in half. Put three of the half-balls on your shelf, put a sheet of plywood or MDF on top of the half-balls, and then put the other three half-balls on top of the sheet with your component on top of this.
It makes a very secure platform that eliminates a lot of vibration. This works great under my tube amps.
Geoff, Unless, as Rcreations suggested, you just want to go to the hardward store, which is fun in itself, remember that most everything has a resonance at one hz or another. When you change from one isolation devise to another, for the most part all you are doing is changing the frequency at which the resonance occurs. Best to have a problem which you need to solve in the first place, otherwise it will just be a fun adventure. But who knows you might actually luck into solving a problem you didn't know you had.
Actually Sean, the vibrations do drop to the point that I can't detect them anymore.
I never said I buy wine for the corks---although, as I re-read my post, I can't help but be grateful that you didn't pick-up on the fact that I lay my 4' high speakers on their sides---commenting that they might start to look more familiar, normal that is, as the evening progresses........
Hi,Geoffgarcia. I still use my sillcock handle tweak in my main 2-channel system. It has worked very well for me. So well in fact I have stopped trying to find something better to replace them. With that said, I can understand why some are less than convinced. I have added an "end-cut" maple cutting board 1-1\2 inch thick. I place 3 solid rubber official(used) NHL hockey pucks $1.00 dollar per puck. From top to bottom it goes... CD player - Sillcock handle tweak - 1-1\2 "End-Cut maple cutting board - 3 rubber hockey pucks which sit on your rack shelf. This works very well on EVERTHING in my system. I at first had the sillcock handle under the maple cutting boards as well as under the componet in my system. It sounded a little bright on some cd's. When I replaced the sillcock handle under the cutting boards with the rubber hockey pucks there was a rightness to the music. The hockey pucks work great with the 1-1\2 maple cutting boards. As a whole everything sounds very good. BTW I have also created my own version of the Shatki Hallograph that sounds great. I found this "Strolling down the lumber aisle"
