    Stillpoints vs IsoAcoustic Orea?

    Since downsizing all my separates I have quite a few IsoAcoustic Orea Bronze discs sitting around my house. When I first got my Uniti Atom for my office, I tried 3 of these under the box but did not notice much of a difference.

    However yesterday I experimented with 4 of these under the Uniti Nova in my main system and there was an immediate tightening and focus to the sound. It's definitely improved definition and imaging but I almost wonder if it has made the overall character of the Nova a little too lean.

    I'm curious if anyone has ever done direct comparisons between Stillpoints and Oreas? I was happy with the Oreas on my tube separates but I'm wondering if the big jump in price is worth any refinement in performance?

    I would suggest giving some EVPs from A/V Roomservice a try as well. They are quite a bit less expensive than Stillpoints.

    And they work very well to attenuate vibration as shown here in this graph I plotted in JMP.

    The EVPs are the blue trace measured as Power, RMS imparted to my audio rack shelf and measure on top of my Schiit Gumby DAC.
