What isolation devices are you using with your pre/pro?

    I'm posting this in two places because I'm not quite sure where it goes...

    I'm planning on picking up some isolation devices for my Rotel 1066 pre/pro and was kinda curious as to what everyone else is using.

    I have been looking into various spikes/cones/half spheres with Black Diamond Racing's "Pyramid Cones" being of particular interest to me.

    I don't use any. I kinda like the shimmery audio effect vibrations have on the electrical signals inside my pre/pro. Do you find this objectionable?

    None- I don't believe they are neceesary *except* for a device with physically moving parts like a turntable or CD/DVD player.

    BTW, the cheapest way of doing this that I've found, is to get 4 different diameter, but the same height, rubber stoppers. Chemical supply houses have them. Because all 4 have different amounts of material (i.e., mass), absolutely no resonances will be propegated. But, they are quite cheap. [​IMG]
