I'm quite sure I'm adding no new information to the chorus that supports the Neuance shelves, but given that I just got mine yesterday, trust me: they do make you look sideways at your system and think, "Whoa! What's this?????" They're much superior to any of the feet (thank God, no more feet....except the two I own, and whatever ones belong in the category of fetishes) on the market. Given that they're cheaper than the Pulsar Points, Walker Audio devices, or anything else, and given that, even with any of those under the component, I had to straaaaaaaaain to hear any significant improvements (they changed the sound, but I can't say it was a "Eureka!" moment), the Neuances, (which Ken told me last night would take a couple of weeks to break in), show an immediate -- and obvious improvement -- on the source. How do I know? Well, they show obvious improvements in the upper midrange, lower midrange and the bass, without dulling the highs. Along with that the transient respones, 3-D effect of individual instruments, and finally, the ambience retrieval are so much more apparent (along with the low level details). If something was masking or faking it, perhaps one of these frequencies would improve, but not all. Rarely does the upper midrange, the lower midrange and the bass improve if a component is frequency specific, or playing the Lone Ranger (that mask[ing] thing, you know).
I put mine under my First Sound Presence Deluxe Mk. II, which, poor thing, has been suffering with all my attempts at isolation. If it could talk, it would no doubt have immediately diagnosed its owner as compulsive-obsessive, so frequently did the supports under it change as the days (not months) passed. But, I'm not an OCD personality. I am flat out lazy: does it work? Good. Ready for my Lays Potato Chips. Wait, it DOESN'T WORK??? Where's the lithium?
So, Thank God for the Neuances: they bring Life to your components, or else they simply bring them TO whatever Life is contained within that metal casing, along with the wiring, tubes (or transistors), knobs and the like.
Of course, there are other suports on the market, but these platforms absolutely deliver, and you won't even remotely find yourself saying, "...but such and such has thismuchmore bass..." or anything like that. Even if some other support has 10% more than the Neuance, the Neuance has 80% more than most other components (many of which cost double and triple the cost of the "Neus" as I call them, in any case, so they're waaaay worth their el-cheapo cost). You'll just ve enjoying the musical presentation. I've joined the Neuance chorus! Hallelujah!
And they get BETTER(!?!?) over the next 2 weeks? Be Still, My Heart!!!
