    Yup, the Entreq Vibbeater . This is the Jumbo , they come in varying sizes and weight . Particularly effective here due to the recessed nature of the Troy's top surface . I think LL21 uses a weight as well on top his Troy . Provides better focus and clarity . I find the HRS brick below to help in providing a better floor interface to the Stillpoint stand .

    Thank you Mike. I have been putting my Tripoints spike through the carpet. I think I will first order some granite slabs to put the Tripoints on with brass discs and see how it goes from there.

    I am allergic to pollens. So I will take a path that has coffee shop along the way to stop and smell the coffee here and there instead . You can wait for me at the destination.

    Kind regards,
    Tang

    Tang,

    when you get those granite slabs, make sure you have some 'tall enough-sharp' spikes beneath them to ground them through the carpet to the subfloor. then stand on the slab to lock it down. likely that's already your plan, but just say'n. that will give you a stable surface to then properly compare floor interface choices.

    too bad about the pollen, but enjoy the coffee. funny; I live in Seattle and don't drink coffee, you live in the tropics, and avoid flowers.

    best regards,

    Mike

    Tang, did you receive the Tripoint Elite? If so, any experiences to share with the WBF members?

    Yes, I have in fact been experimenting here so will be very interested to go thru the posts here, and also see how Tang does with his experiment. Here is where i am at the moment:

    1. On the same shelf (4" birch ply on top of 1.5" slate), we have Zanden PSU and Burmester 948 Power Conditioner, and Tripoint Troy)
    2. For both Zanden and Burmester...I have found using a combination of HRS Nimbus Couplers (aluminum + elastomer-like rubber) with Stillpoints Ultra 6s is great.
    3. HOWEVER, I only just discovered that putting the Nimbus Couplers UNDER the Ultra 6s is far better than ON TOP (ie, directly under each component). In my non-techie mind, it is both the improved contact between the Ultra 6s 'pockets' and the unit...but also the fact that the Nimbus Couplers are actually being put to better use by absorbing vibration COMING UP FROM THE FLOOR. There is a residual hardness/thinness that i get in my system without this configuration.

    4. As a result, my current Tripoint is ONLY mass dampened (not enough footers!)...Artesania damping plate plus Ultra 5s on top with some weight.

    5. I am now trying to figure out how to isolate the Tripoint with not only Ultra 5s but ALSO Nimbus Couplers to see if that is more successful than my brief trial with ONLY Ultra 5s.

    They are running late. Hopefully I will receive the Elite next month.
