Default Symposium Ultra Platforms

Just received my new Symposium Ultra Platforms that I am using as amp stands under my McIntosh MC601s. I think they look and sound fantastic coupled with my Stillpoints Ultra SS's.

Where do you have the Stillpoints? Under the amp or the stands?

The Stillpoints are screwed into the amps in lieu of the plastic footers. The platforms are directly on the floor.

Paul - the platforms look great! I just placed an order (finally) for a Symposium Segue ISO for my VPI Classic Signature a few days ago! Can't wait to get it setup. I've read nothing but good things about the Symposium products.

Buck, I also have a Symposium Segue ISO for my VPI TT. It also made a noticeable improvement when playing vinyl. The Symposium footer inserts also make an improvement over what is inside the VPI footers. I would have gone with Stillpoints under the VPI also but the newer tables have the power plug under the table instead of in the rear so you need more height in order to clear especially with a larger upgraded power cord and 90 degree adaptor.

Paul.......What size are the Symposium Ultra Platforms? They look like they might be the 19" x 21".
