I have the "Puck" version which can't support as much weight as the "Oreo". I placed four between my speaker stand and my Joseph Audio Pulsar speakers.

I can detect no audible anomalies with the "Puck" in place. They seems to do their intended job of isolating the speaker from any vibrations and for a total outlay of $240, I consider them quite the bargain.

Probably too inexpensive for some members on this forum to seriously consider :cool: but I would highly recommend you try. Can buy on Amazon or Music Direct with money back guarantee.

Curious how you can ensure there are no audible anomalies?

Thank you for posting about your experience with them.

Did you ever have the Simms Navcom Silencers? If so, how do these IsoAcoustic “pucks” compare to earlier Navcom version?

I agree. Great product imo. They reduce the amount of resonance my home produces at moderate to high SPLs quite a bit, such as window frames, light fixtures, etc... They also make the bass and mids sound clearer.

I have 2 subwoofer stands under each of my 15" woofer cabinets.

I'm interested in other impressions of Isoacoustic footers. I have the Gaia IIs under my speakers, and their benefits are immense. I got decent improvement from the Bordeauxs under my amp, however, the Indigos or Bronzes haven't been too much of a hit under my DAC - they thin out the sound a little too much. I'm getting another set of Bordeauxs to try under the DAC even though they are made for a higher weight class.

Adamaley, I originally really liked the Gaias under my Zus, but felt the Arya Audio Revopods did a better job. Under gear, I wish I could offer an opinion.

I tried a set of indigo under my Aqua Dac and thought they smoothed out the sound and slowed the timing so tried the RevOpods. These were initially the lower load type and didn’t improve the sound at all so asked for a swap to the higher load and after some trial, (reversed support), they are successful.
You may have success with the higher load Gaia.

I now need to save up for two more sets for my amps.

Hi Barry,

Not sure whether you had considered it, but the Daiza is well worth auditioning and probably same or cheaper than Revopods.

I have a funny feeling your amps might gel with it very well indeed.

The Daiza was recommended to me by a trusted ear, however, I wasn't able to navigate their site, determine pricing, nor availability in the US sufficiently.

Hi Adamaley,

Emile from Taiko audio is an active member in here and an absolute pleasure to deal with - suggest sending him a PM. He’ll fix you up.

Best.
