Wood base isolation platforms or stands will give your SA14 a warmer tonal character then it's current performance. As well, solid steel stands will be more stable than wood, but tonal color will be sharper, less colored. A good stand/platform is a main key to the sound of your setup because SA14 is your source. I currently have my SACD1000 on Solid Rosewood Cones sitting on a solid maple stand. Lot warmer than when it was sitting on my carpet. MOre accurate top when it was sitting on my Lovan metal rack but, total performance is better with wood. Rock-base stand/isolations will give a colder/sharper sound but should sound the most accurate on top and the bass would get tighter and more solid.
