    Isoacoustics Gaia Speaker Isolation

    Does anyone use these or similar devices? I have padded carpet over concrete and have always found spikes that penetrate the carpet and padding are definitely better than flat feet. But I have never tried any product like this. My speakers are Quad ESL-2805s.

    Re: Isoacoustics Gaia Speaker Isolation

    I just re-shoe my sopra with them in about a month or so

    Another good stuff for your bucks i would say, image more focus , mid bass lush and tighter compare to the original spike.

    I don't have carpet underneath, just a ceramic concrete tiles. Yet have a chance to try other brands too though

    Hope it helps

    Thanks Jesse. Were the spikes resting on cups before?

    Re: Isoacoustics Gaia Speaker Isolation

    I tried a set of Isoacoustics for my 4367's. The spikes are a bit short and I have thick carpet over concrete, and, at the time I thought raising the speakers up a bit could be good.

    People raved about these things. I absolutely could not stand the effect, I found no good from them. To me the music became gutless and I can only describe the sound as similar to speakers being very apparently out of phase. I honestly didn't want to listen to my system when the stands were used.

    In case it could make a difference the bottom of my speaker where you screw in the spikes is not flush with the cabinet, so a square piece of wood was custom made with a hole, once the wood fit over the part not flush, it became a flush area for the Iso's rubber cup to meet the speaker cabinet. Without the piece to make a flush area the stands couldn't be used. I really can't see how this would make any difference, but, who knows.

    Re: Isoacoustics Gaia Speaker Isolation

    Hello
    I have a pair of Gaias 3 Under my audiophysics virgo 25
    When I had them , I was surprised that it was some sorbothane like material Under the metal enclosure
    However , I can only vouch for them
    My speakers do not sound the same , better may be , but it's a question of taste
    4 weeks have gone , since installation , and I am keeping them
    Have a demo at home .. may be it can suit
    Cheers
