Thoughts on placing amps on stone/tile base


Dear all,
It appears that all the equipment in my component rack is generating a lot of heat to the point where I am concerned about fire and/or component damage. I need to move my amp out of the rack to get an immediate improvement and wanted to check with you folks on whether there are any pros/cons on placing the amp on a large spare tile that I have available. I have seen some platforms made by Butcher Block Acoustics and Mapleshade but didn't want to jump in and spend money prior to understanding whether there was any benefit other than aesthetics. The amp is going to be hidden behind my speakers anyway so visually there's no possibility of seeing the platform or the tile.

Amp stand, piece of glass, wood block, or surface table all work fine.

Vibration control is a concern and yes everything sounds different. Glass, tile and stone all can be used but they ring and will impart hardness and glare. Wood is better and the sound you get will depend on the type of wood, thickness, and construction (laminated, slab, etc).  

There's no reason not to put them directly on the floor. But if you do want something that works really good without spending much Nobsound springs are only about $30 a set of four and are phenomenal value. Way more improvement than you would expect for so little money. 

Much better, but also much more expensive, Townshend Pods are springs that are much more carefully engineered than Nobsound and deliver a whole lot better sound. Much more extended, dynamic, and true to tone and timber of the instruments. 
+1 on the nobsoud springs MC. They outperformed a set of isoacoustic pucks under my coincident pre head units. After that I just reflexively put them under all my equipment. You can remove springs to adjust for weight.
