Rockyboy, even though the platforms work better, the threaded Audiopoints( that's what I have under my Meadowlark Osprey) will give you big improvements in dynamics,coherency, soundstaging, and imaging.You'll also hear a difference under your cdp.But any pointed cone may not work. I am referring only to the actual Audiopoints cone. I would highly recommend that you call Star Sound(Audiopoints parent) and talk to Robert Maicks, the president of the company.Robert is a very knowledgeable and congenial gentleman who would enjoy talking with you to answer all your questions. I think you would be pleasantly surprised with all the suggestions and recommendations you'll receive to help you fine tune your system.Also, if you could list the rest of your system(please list all cables) and the speaker placement in your room, I think you'll get some more helpful advice.Hang in there. Remember, this hobby is supposed to be fun.
