BTW, Mar, I see that Isoacoustics is making their own maple board with IsoAcoustics footers now...its called the Delos:

Hey PC, I did consider the Delos, but they didn't have the size I wanted, I was impatient; and it would have raised my TT to where the dust cover wouldn't fit. I am looking to purchase another set as well for my pre-amp. Interested in hearing your feedback if you do decide to get them.

Gaia IIIs and carpet spikes purchased on Monday. Just waiting for the spikes to arrive before trying them out, away this coming weekend so I will have to be patient.
Might even do the bearing and oil service on the Gyrodec and install the Orbs spindle upgrade first.

I’m interested here as well......I was thinking of trying the Oreas under the DCS Rossini. Any feedback would be great!

I have the ISO Orea's on just about every component in my system. Best bang for the buck ever. Just make sure you load them properly with the correct Orea. Each Orea has a specific weight limitation. Keep within it at you will be delighted.

Default IsoAcoustics GAIA

I’m using the Indigo’s under my Yggy along with two HRS damping plates on top. To be honest, I’m not sure how much of a difference I can hear. I went with the ISO’s because the price point is very reasonable and the Yggy’s stock feet are very lacking. Overall I’m very impressed with the ISO’s quality and feel they have isolated my Yggy very well. I may not hear a noticeable difference, but I believe in the benefits they offer. No regrets.

Jacob

Side note, I have hearing loss and tinnitus, so...

They finally arrived and I installed them on Christmas Eve. The Gaia are easy to install, but the carpet spikes are a real PITA and necessary if you have carpet and underlay.
Sound improvement ... wider, deeper, higher(?) soundstage. Quite background, greater image separation, and so on.
They also look very nice under the Sonus Faber stands.

I just placed the Orea Blue Indigo's under two of my subs this week and again they prove to be amazing. It places the bassist in your listening room, bass is tighter, has more impact, smoother and the realism is stunning. I didn't think it could get any better, I'm a big fan of these.
