Spikes or rubber feet.
@gphill  I called Aerial and talked to Michael Kelly about this very issue. He recommended that I use the spikes since my floor was not a slab but a floor with joists over a basement. Interesting since it is usually the other way around.  Decoupl... 
What isolation feet under your amp with great result?
Silent Running Audio (SRA) platforms work great under my amps.  You need to have the platforms made (or refurbished) for your specific amplifier(s), i.e., weight, size, and footer location.  With their platforms, you can use your amp's existing fo... 
Network Switches
@rilbr "Here we go again. I just saw 50 to 60 posts from people who have not tried one of the switches in question.This just confuses people who come here to find out results."Seems to me this thread has stayed pretty much on task as it is about N... 
Do Audiophile Cables Matter? Here's PROOF!
Ok, I’ll bite, where is Geoff?I have been off riding my bicycles the past two weeks and am out of the loop.Hopefully just a small misunderstanding with the management and not something more serious? 
Are cables really worth their high price because of their geometry?
Geometry, purity, gauge, network box, direction, coating/dielectric, termination, damping........one pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small, and the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all - it all makes a bit of differenc... 
Do Audiophile Cables Matter? Here's PROOF!
You are absolutely correct.....it made no difference.I expected a bit more from somebody with a globe of the earth in the shape of a square cube.However, I do like their tube connector concept and I like that they use solid core copper wire and co... 
The Best Isolation/ Vibration Footers per component - what's your experience?
@vinylvalet , I suspect the differences between Herbies products and EVP would be less for lower weight components and would also depend on the rack/platform the component sits on.  I use a variety of aftermarket footers from Herbies, edenSound, a... 
The Best Isolation/ Vibration Footers per component - what's your experience?
@vinylvalet , thanks for the EVP recommendation. Surprisingly, I have not heard of them before now and a search of these forums did not give me many responses. Interesting that they use (fiber) glass and rubber, which are typically not considered ... 
Who says cables don't make a difference?
Wow, you folks are really working overtime here so you probably need a break.  This seems like a perfect time to revisit my question about: What do people who don’t worry about cables have in common with the people of Finland?Answer: They are (bo... 
is this the greatest live band of all time?
@yyzsantabarbara I saw The Who in 1975, Rush in 1976, but Santana not until the 1990's - all were great shows! Pearl Jam would have been a sweet show.   
is this the greatest live band of all time?
@dwiphefl1128 I kind of want to hear a band that sounds better live than on their recordsI have seen many bands that fall into that category as I believe most musicians/artists are energized by a live audience.  I heard two of your listed bands du... 
is this the greatest live band of all time?
@twoleftears , I saw the Zombies in 2017 at their N. American tour commemorating the 50th anniversary of Odessey and Oracle.  Colin Blunstone, Rod Argent, Chris White and Hugh Grundy were there and they sounded great - an awesome evening! 
Who says cables don't make a difference?
@geoffkait Nope, not a Mickey Finn - neither the bartender nor the T.Rex drummer.....imagine trying to do a line while wearing one of those stick hats in the pictures @djones51 linked! Get it on, bang a gong, get it on! 
Who says cables don't make a difference?
@djones51 Those Finns are a laugh a minute, becoming one with nature - thanks for sharing.
