  1. Good to know thanks, I will definitely have a read, because I just did the math and to isolate all my equipment with ISOacoustics (Gaia and Orea) will be around £2k. Yikes!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Apologies, I see that you did mention Oreas, I missed that Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. And here is the donor Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yes that would be the next step. I have the same solution for all my components, i.e granite slabs resting on foculpod sarbothane feet. The amps are on offcut solid wood cherry that was leftover after I built my rack, which is also placed on the same sarbothane feet. But before I go overboard on isolation, I’d like to replace the stereo volume pot on my pre with mono stepped attenuators. The Gaias for the speakers are the first priority though. PS. Why do you recommend different isolation for the amps as opposed to e.g Oreas out of interest? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Just looked on Amazon, hell’s bells it’s £700!! For some reason I always thought they’re between 4-500 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’d be very interested in giving those a try! The speaker is 38kg and the stand about 10kg for a combined weight of 48kg. So it looks like I might need the Gaia II unfortunately Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’d be very interested in your findings as you progress on this journey. I’m contemplating getting a set of Gaias to screw in place of the spikes on my Something Solid stands. The stands are currently on granite slabs, which in turn rest on sarbothane feet on the floor I am hoping that this will help clear up the bass slightly and improve imaging and soundstaging. The bass on my 40.1’s can be little overbearing in my room at times Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Can we see pictures with your new Enterprise arm please [emoji7] I think it will help your sale to show that you’re man of exquisite taste! Other than selling these great amps of course.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Very nice! If you are looking for more, by all accounts the DAC 2.1x Signature is the sweet spot in the range. Just putting it out there…
  11. I can second this, I have Something Solid stands for my M40.1’s. They were purpose designed for Harbeths, work well and are cost effective. Maybe not the world’s sexiest stands, but it’s a function over form and minimalist design, which I like Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Nooooo! Sacrilege!! [emoji85] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Wouldn’t they be more grandchildren friendly if you used the valve cages? Icon amps must be some of the best VFM in audio. GLWS! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. That is a combo that I will pay good money to hear! Even more to own!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Is it only me who finds it slightly ironic that someone who is retiring from hifi is selling Audio Addicted speakers? Very interesting kit you have there John. GLWS and hope to see you back soon if you cannot shake the addiction! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
