    Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    I am interested in the EVP and would like to use them under my REL.

    Could you please share with us how did you use it with the REL?
    Did you place them under the REL cabinet around the down firing woofer without removing the REL's feet?
    Are they higher than the REL feet?
    Did you place them directly between the floor and the REL?
    What is your floor? wood, laminate, tile...etc

    ....Sanbobo...i place the EVPs beneath the feet on the REL 212s..i contacted REL about possibly removing the feet and the process was not going to be as easy as thought so i went with them beneath the feet.My room is carpeted but this /that does not affect the way they perform.I have a friend nearby who ordered them after me and who has REL Gibralter subs and also placed them under the feet with great improvements. He has wood floors..He also placed them under his Monoblock amps with great results..hope this helps..dave

    Did you try to place them under the cabinet directly? (Not under feet)

    I did many exterminations with feet and platforms under my REL.
    Non so far managed to reduce the cabinet inherent vibrations.
    When I touch the REL's cabinet I feel the same level of vibrations no matter what is under the REL.
    I am hopping that the EVP will dissipate the vibrations and convert it to heat as they claim.

    Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    sanbobo..the EVPs are not as tall as the REL 212 feet are so in order for me to place them under the sub itself i would have to take the feet off which is not easily possible..dave

    Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    Tremendous products, tremendous value. I now use them under all components and speakers. In addition, I've worked with a metal worker to design custom equipment racks with butcher block shelves, each shelf isolated with four 2" EVPs. The racks have 4" x 4" feet (plates) so the whole rack system can sit on four 4" EVPs.

At their price, roughly $45 / unit at this size, they are not expensive. I have been a tweak junky most of my audio life.I don't change any of the major equipment that i have but isolators and the like i enjoy seeing if i can improve what i9 hear at a reasonable price, which these certainly are. I started out putting 4 of them under the Lumin A1, and immediately heard a significant improvement in imaging, depth of field, tightness of plucked strings and vocal naturalness...I took 1 of them out and went to a triangle placement, with on in the back and 2 in the front without loosing anything and possibly improving things even more. I have ordered2 more, which should be hear this week and will place those under my Luminary's PSU. I also will be replacing the Symposium platforms under my REL 212 SE subs with the 4" HDR devices.Jim Smith,who also has the REL 212 SE subs, says the change was just an amazing improvement in bass response..stay tunes..Mr. Varney...of AV RoomService,is a very nice gentleman also.
    $45 dollars? That sounds expensive!

    These 2" x 2"x 7/8" isolators are for sale at Amazon for less than $10 for a package of four. I wonder how much different they are. By the way, I use the 4" x 4" under my turntable and they do damp the vibration from the equipment rack.

    Retail for the 2" models is $39 each and the 4" models $105 each unless there has been a very recent price increase I'm not aware of.

    Are these any different than the $1.53 each (for the 2"x 2") or the $3.61 each (for the 4" x 4") sold by Amazon?

    The construction and materials are very different. As to the sound, I have not tried the Amazon product.

    Reading from the specs both sites, I can't tell that they are different. Can you elaborate?
    BTW, the Amazon product works.
