I am no expert, but intuitively, I don't understand why you would want floating speaker stands. This would only allow the speakers to move in sympathy with, perhaps in opposition to, the drivers, especially bass drivers, in the speakers. To me, it is the vibrations and soundwaves from the speakers that you want to launch as cleanly as possible, with as little movement from the cabinets as possible. Then you want to have your component supports absorb those soundwaves so they do not reach your electonics. For that reason, I use spikes to firmly couple my speakers to the floor, and absorption devices to isolate my electronics from the vibrations produced by my speakers.
