    Isoacoustic Gaia's or Orea's for Magneplanar 3.7i?

    For aesthetic reasons (WAF) I have to keep the oval bases on my 3.7i's and can't replace them with Mye Stands or Magna Risers. As an alternative way of achieving greater isolation and clarity I was wondering if Isoacoustic Gaia's or Orea's might be beneficial. Has anyone tried these with Maggies? what about other footer devices?

    As a further alternative, has anyone found an attractive and sonically beneficial replacement for the oval base, that doesn't involve the long, ski-like footers?

    I'm using Isoaccoustics. Can't tell you much at this point as I'm really fresh with them. Giai are the better quality of the two. It goes strictly by weight as to which model to choose from. The cost for these compared to the others is quite substantial. Are the others better I don't know but are they 4 times better.The people Iso are quite helpful. You may want to reach out to them to get an education to make the right decision.
