Hi,
I am thinking about putting my 360s on cones, feet, pads or....
Who has their power amp(s) lifted by one of those and which ones do you recommend?
Thank your for the input!

I use Aurios Pro MIB, one under the middle of the front of the amp and 2 under the rear of each amp

I use isolation platforms. Having said that, some amps benefit from them more than others. Some like my Levinsons made no audible differences whatever I place them on. With my tube amps and hybrids, using different materials from wood, granite and acrylic did make differences.

What amps are you using?

Two I'd look into are the Wave Kinetics footers or the Silent Running stands.

Each of my shelves in my Adona Racks are isolated. Each of my amps is sitting on 4 of the Herbies Audio footers called Iso-Cups with Lampblack Balls and Hi-End bases.

I use the Black Diamond Racing Cones (#3's) and Pucks under all of my electronics save for some custom stainless steel points under my Dodson Audio DAC that seemed to sound better. My BAT VK-6200 then sits on an Solidsteel amp stand (via the BDR's).

Thank you all for your suggestions! The reason for my question is that I am going to put the whole shebang (set :p) into a great-looking sideboard of which I am going to rip out the back panel (to get easy access for the cables (like the Elrod snakes) and of course for the heat). Problem of the sideboard is that shelves are 40 cm deep. This means that the amps cannot rest on their own four feet if I still want to close the front doors of the sideboard. Putting the amp on some nice high-end feet would solve this problem ánd hopefully improve the sound.
Anyone using the Finite Ceraballs/ Cerapucs or Cerabase? They look like the real thing from an engineering aspect.

Hello Nirodha,

I use Ceraballs under my spectral gear.
This is a great improvement for little costs.
The sound becomes faster an cleaner.
