Who has de coupled their Loudspeakers from the floor ? If so how ?


I have been using Townshend Audio Seismic Podiums under my Sound Labs and Thiel CS 6s for a while now and must say how impressed i am with the sound quality improvements, for many years i have always used the supplied Spikes but must confess the Townshend Podiums are a revelation in my system.

I did read many positive reviews but wanted to experience the Podiums myself and i am so glad i did.

The Podiums were well worth the cost in my system, i could not live without them now.

My floor is a suspended wooden floor so maybe this is the reason but also maybe not.

Is anyone still using the supplied Spikes ?

If not are you using Townshend Podiums or any other Speaker Isolation product ?

Thanks everyone for your comments, please all take stay care and stay safe!

@tooblue... I attribute the wooly sound to using the gliders on carpet.  While gliders are good for positioning speakers, I prefer the sound when the stands are coupled to the concrete slab.
@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. Enjoy the music
Herr geoffkait,... coupling?!?
I say, no sex please, we English, eh? 😉

Sure, go for the cheap joke. I knew you would say that anyway. I know what everybody’s going to say. I’m from the future.
Townsend Seismic Podiums under Spendor D9s located on the second floor on carpet. Everything improved.
