    Placing feet under racks

    Anyone placed feet under their racks (rather than spikes) and noticed any difference?

    IsoAcoustics pucks would work great too.

    System plus rack would be too heavy for IsoAcoustic pucks sadly.

    Townshend pods would work, along with Discs of Silence. These are suspension designs.

    Alternatively there are the "bearing" types of designs - Albedo have just launched one for speakers which might work, and are a few others.
