Yes it would be like me to over think it! The stands have 3 screw holes in the top for spiking into the bottom of the speaker and another 3 on the bottom. Will spike both ends, fill them with sand and put some granite/paving slabs underneath and call it a day.

Again that’s really helpful Cno given me some good ideas where to start with it.
It needs to be as simple as possible, but as complicated as necessary. *biggrin*

IV found isolation very important probably one of the most important things to do to you hifi and Speaker's. lot's to try I'm using the Atacama Bamboo hifi stand with stillpoints under my kit as I find them to work best very balanced. Under my Speaker's I use soundcare super spikes which can be bought for just £40 for four and sound amazing.i highly recommend these for Speaker's

I had a demo yesteday of IsoAcoustic products underneath Focal Sopra No2 speakers in a quick switch demo A/B Demo.

I am making the video on it now - hopefully its ok for You Tube and not blocked on copyright, heres hoping.

It was a great demo on how these products work and what they can do even to very good speakers.

It will be up soon all being well and could well be an interesting watch for you

Its just gone up - you will need to watch it on a PC it doesnt work on a phone due to copyright of the music which is stupid but not my fault.

The best bit is most normal speakers are under the weight of the smallest in the Gaia range which are £199 a set, you need a set per speaker I think

Wow what a wealth of info this thread has turned into. Thank you all for contributing and I’ll have a proper read through it all later, not even listened to it this week due to being busy with life and a new impulse bought turntable which I’m starting another thread about!

Can’t seem to find that YouTube vid, do you by any chance have a link?
