Foculpods, supports and squash balls

I got talked into buying a pack of foculpod antivibration supports for my Cyrus 6s CD player by my local dealer a few weeks ago.

I think they make a bit of difference. Only problem is if I place them directly below the 6s's built in isolating pads, they don't fit correctly on the 6S, making it physically unstable (there is a small pad on a large pad, which has a curved base). It just doesn't seem right. I also tried placing the supports to the inside of the existing pads, which makes the unit stable, but makes me think that it's not what Cyrus intended.

Do I dig out a hole in the foculpods to encompass the cyrus's own isolation pads or do I remove the Cyrus's pads (it's still in warranty).

Any suggestions?

I don't have this problem on my other components, which are being supported by cut squash balls!

thanks

Pete

Personally I wouldn't be taking a knife to my CD player. Put them to the inside and keep the unit stable. Or don't use them. Or use squash balls. Better still, get someone to do a bit of blind testing, and if you can't tell the difference, put them on eBay ;-)

up the music:How about putting the CD6 on a granite chopping board and placing the Foculpods under the board?

That would be bright

The real problem with these devices is they completely ignore the rotation of the earth. That's why I have my CDP suspended from a pendulum.

The period of swing of a simple gravity pendulum depends on its length, the acceleration of gravity, and to a small extent on the maximum angle that the pendulum swings away from vertical, ?0, called the amplitude.[8] It is independent of the mass of the bob. If the amplitude is limited to small swings, the period T of a simple pendulum, the time taken for a complete cycle, is:[9]

I suppose I've also not considered the directional nature of these pads or whether the sound wlll have changed once I have run them in for a few thousand hours........

I just feel you folks aren't taking this too seriously....

Looks like another £20 down the nick in the name of hifi perfection.....

i previoulsy bought the brigtstar isonodes from the us and thought they made a difference - in both cases when i have used them i removed the original feet - roksan kandy just pulled out and arcam solo movie just pulled off - contact cyrus and ask hw they are removed - it might be smething weird like screwed on to base plate or something or they may just pull off
