    What are u doing to dampen the case top of the 511? It rings like a cheap can and was a big turnoff when I had 511's.

    Nothing so far, mine does not ring. Not a bit.

    Maybe your unit had suffered some transport damage?

    I had 2 511's. The tops ringed. Give it a tap with your finger.

    Maybe they added a dampening pad on the underside of later units?

    In any case I felt putting something heavy on the top made a difference. I used vpi bricks

    Try the Pneupods by Pneuance Audio. The real deal, read their white paper.

    Guess there’s no shortage of companies offering, and seldom lack of enthusiastic proponents praising all kinds of footers and dampers .

    Especially when they cost 1K a pop.

    Re: Trying out IsoAcoustics Orea footers

    i have tried the similar isopucks under a number of speakers now . they always improve the sound and use them under my tannoys . in the uk you can get these at 50 pounds for 2 so they are quite good vfm

    I think this is what they sell to put under monitors for musicians. E.g. Thomann sells them.

    Obviously can’t charge audioholic prices .

    Re: Trying out IsoAcoustics Orea footers

    I would suggest playing with the positioning of the Oreas. I recently added two sets of 3 Orea Bordeauxs underneath my preamp and amp. With my amp, I get a fatter sound when the two rear Oreas (back where the heavy transformers are on my LM 508ia) are placed closer together. I inched them farther apart to get the right blend of tautness and separation. The sound was completely unlistenable when I tested with two Oreas in front and one in the back. Experimentation is key.

    This review really prompted me to experiment with placement, and I have since ordered a set of Indigos to see if they are more copacetic for my preamp, which weighs less than my amp.
