I found "footers" for sale at Audio Advisor which are designed to hold the point of the spike and protect hardwood floors. They came with an adhesive on the bottom covered by thin paper, which will come off if you try to slide heavy equipment, the result being they will stick to the floor. This may be sonically better, but inconvenient. I bought some teflon furniture sliders at Home Depot in the appropriate size, which also have an adhesive side, and stuck them to the bottom of the footers. I have them under my speakers (ML SL-3) and equipment rack, and have not noticed any significant deterioration (or improvement, for that matter) in the sound as compared to the footers without the teflon, but they slide quite satisfactorily. If I glued them to the floor, it might sound better, but I have not been willing to do that.
