I forgot to mention the bass and overall dynamics. All improved. In fact the bass is so dense, tight, extended that my deck sounds like tape save for the occasional pop, tick, crackle between songs.

I can only imagine what they could do for source components like the phono stage, main Pre, amps, tape decks, cd, d/a. The possibilities are endless....only pocket book limited...
just follow pure science. labs used air suspension in the 90's. magnetic levetation was also used. both are passive approaches.
now the most advanced labs use this.
of course; when you do manufacturing multiples for margin retention for $12k pieces that gets expensive quickly.
this would add at least $20k-$30k to the value of the end product....even if they got a break on it.

I found the following:
It is a passive isolation base and cheaper as well by a large margin. I do not mean to imply that this is a better product for the money, but for a system in general if one is looking for "amp stands", etc, compared to the price of an HRS isolation base or 4 Stillpoint Ultra 5s you can get one of these for the same money which I would presume, based on their published stats isolates better than the other two by a significant margin. I was thinking of experimenting with one for my DAC
