    I am having some space problems in one of my listening rooms. Should I be concerned about keeping my receiver on top of my subwoofer? Are there any products that would isolate the receiver? Thanks. Rob

    I would not keep it on the subwoofer, simply because a magnetic field is never a good thing for any device with any kind of memory.

    Vibrations from the sub cannot be good for any electronic component, thats why they make isolation feet for CD/DVD players. At the very least you could vibrate a connection loose, or at worst, loosen a solder joint or other delicate part inside the receiver. Even with some kind of isolation device, I would not do it.

    These guys are right Rob if the reciever is sitting on the sub it will shake not stir your receiver. what are the limitations of the room and what else is in the room?

    About seven million years ago, when people still used turntables, we used to hang them from the ceiling with cheap hardware-store chains. just put some eye hooks in the ceiling joists (not the drywall!) and eye bolts into a plywood square large enough for urntable, receiver, or what-have-you. Angle the chains outward to avoid swaying.
