Good for you, mate! You might want to consider using 3 Stillpoints per component rather than 4 - you might be surprised at what you hear....

I have found that for speakers they work better screwed into the speakers' threaded holes and Stillpoints cap down, but you have to be very careful to try to have the weight distributed as evenly as possible between the 4 Stillpoints (it won't happen automatically as it would with only 3). For components, though, it's not so clear; so far I have preferred cap ("pointy-head") up for those.
Stillpoints recommends that the techonolgy pocket be oriented closest to the component which in the case of the ULTRA SS's, is with the narrow end up. However this is not always possible such as when using ULTRA 5's screwed direcly into a speaker. Also the top cap should be loosened a quarter of a turn.
With the 'hats' up against the component, you get maximum resolution...reverse them and you get a warmer sound...I aim for maximum resolution under my CAT pre and a combo for my amps(1 down and 2 up).
Use of bamboo cutting boards as platforms compliment the Stillpoints(SS Ultra and SS mini) perfectly.
