I use Auralex subdude platforms under my floorstanders when used on upper level suspended plywood floors. Not needed at finished foundation level.

With my Vandersteen 2CE Sig I's, I have never used the spikes that came with the anchor bases, (which I filled with sand), as I have a wood floor. When I first got them, I went out and found furniture glide feet, with nylon bottoms, from Home Depot that fit and work great for both adjusting the tilt easily, and also moving them around for placement. But, wanting to decouple those nylon feet from the wood floor, I actually picked-up some washing machine absorber 'pads' on eBay, which my furniture glide feet fit perfectly onto/into; Like they were meant to be used together. So, for a fairly small amount spent, I have an easy way to adjust, move, and absorb/decouple my Vandy's from the floor system.
Another vote for the Herbies Gliders, they come in three different metal composites each with their own attributes. I use the largest brass gliders on my Wilson Sophias, initially just to facilitate easy movement, then spiked to hardwood floors over concrete slab. After removing the Herbies noticed a loss of detail and tightening of the bottom end suffered. Please note, I am not one of those people gifted with overly keen hearing. Enjoy the music
I started a discussion here. My final sandwich material between the two slabs of granite is high density sorbathane. Here is the link.
@pdreher , fair enough. I am a fan of the Sound Anchor products after positive results with B&W 802N and 804 Matrix speakers while using them, so am sure they certainly don't hurt. With that said I was very surprised of the positive results with the Herbies Gliders on a floating hardwood floor over concrete after sampling the results of direct spike to said hardwood.
