50 years of Hip Hop- How Come?
There’s a lot of music which is not my taste. But that’s all I need to say. I don’t need to deride it as "not music." I’m pretty sure that most people don’t listen to twelve-tone classical music, either, but it was largely made by white guys, so ... 
Under my tower speakers -- Isoacoustics Gaia, other options?
@hchilcoat This concerned dissipated over the next day as the stands and began to settle in. I’ve never heard of stands "settling in." Interesting. Thanks for your narrative. Very detailed and clear. Also, the website for "starsoundtechnologi... 
Made in USA
@westcoastaudiophile Agreed. That's why this topic should be called, "Who wants to thump their chest about 'merica?"  
Made in USA
Not many American made products with nothing but American made parts.

ML is a good company. Much of how a speaker sounds depends on what it's connected to, the room, your tastes.   
what cd player ?
Transport or with a DAC in it?  
Under my tower speakers -- Isoacoustics Gaia, other options?
@audiopoint Thanks for weighing in. I am not sure I followed everything there. If you were to make your main point in a single clear paragraph, I'd be interested to read it. It might help me understand what you wrote, at length. I blame my own lac... 
Experience with Townshend Seismic Podiums on Concrete Floor (they're great)
Thanks mapman. So  Isoacoustics stands+ Auralex Subdude platform. What do those cost, together? Still a fraction of Townshend but these things add up.

@prof  Unfortunately I found they weren't to my taste.  I lost a bit too much "room feel" in the bass and they changed the tonality a bit more than I wanted Good evidence that (a) the room-speaker dyad is a huge factor which cannot be predicte...

@brownsfan  Good point. Type 4 (seismic) is part of type 3, and would be small in comparison. It would be nice to see an interview with a speaker maker that addressed these vibrational issues in these terms.  @benzman  -- I love your description ...

I read the Townsend website write up on their seismic pods and sorry not buying it. ....Speaker interaction with suspended plywood floors is a very common and way more significant acoustic issue. All one has to do is jump up and down in a room a... 
Hello Guys,
a few guys took this as an opportunity to have a discussion among themselves completely ignoring the substance of this post. With a lot of blank space. LOL. Welcome to forum discussions. You got a few good answers, right? Consider yourself unsc...

@surfcat "Makes me wonder if every single system, especially those with floor standers, would automatically benefit." I have to say I agree.  My challenge, as a true blue skeptic, is to keep listening critically. Am I in an infatuation period? I... 
Hello Guys,
I was surprised to hear this:

@ozzy — thanks for the link to your review! @relayer101 — I saw someone on another forum asking about down-firing ports. I can’t remember what they said, so you might need to search the web a bit on that question. It’s a good one. @snilf — I got...
