    New Everest, Omega XC and Block Audio C-Lock

    Just received my new Everest and Omega XC PC to replace my Denali and Sigma PC. It was worth the upgrade to me. At Mike's suggestion I also replaced my Furutech outlet cover with the Block Audio C-Lock cover. I never have to worry about a sagging connection anymore. This connection holds the heavy Omega in place without any movement. I even purchased a few more grounding wires to connect to my Altaira. I tried the Everest on a piece of granite but I preferred it on a Symposium Ultra shelf. Everything sounded great before but these purchases has brought it to the next level.
    Thanks Mike for all your help and having to deal with me.

    Congrats on your Everest & Omega XC PC. In my experience, they are true "game-changers" to use an over-used phrase.

    Not surprised that your Everest also sounds better on the Symposium than the piece of granite; it likely sounds better because the Symposium provides better damping and isolation from vibration.

    A lot of folks may not realize this, but hard materials e.g. granite or concrete quite literally ring like a bell at a specific "excitation" frequency. All you have to do is place a small music box mech up to piece of granite or concrete and turn the little crank, and you can hear the ringing firsthand; it's surprisingly loud.

    Anti-vibration "pads" comprised of composite materials, e.g. the A/V Roomservice EVPs, and I would guess, your Symposium platform as well, almost completely eliminate this audible "ringing" resonance component. So, I'm not at all surprised you found the Symposium platform to sound better. 👍
