    Haven't had a chance myself (also not in love with the chrome - hoping there will be a black option like the nimbus).
    I will qualify any discussion on footers with YMMV

    I also have not done any critical listening of M400s in my system yet and won't for a few more days. I do have more experience with Nimbus vs vortex on the MXR. I have about 9 sets of Nimbus and 3 sets of Vortex. I have found Nimbus to work best on assembled cases like the Ayre 5 series and Audio Research products. The Vortex works best on solid casings such as the Ayre R products. Since the M400s also have solid casing I am going with Vortex to start. Agree with you on the black but just like the Ultra 5s. You don't get an option

    Did you try the Vortex with your DCS stack?

    The HRS guys said that the Vortex was better for solid chasis components like the Ayre -R series. When I said that's fine and if I bought them I'd continue to use nimbus with my EMM Labs TX2 and DA2, they started selling a little too hard that the Vortex was better for everything "solidly built".

    I have not. My DCS stack sits on individual bamboo shelves so I use Nimbus with them. I also use the larger Nimbus for the S250 amp powering the surrounds as it also sits on a bamboo shelf. I may consider adding one more pair of Vortex for the KXR as it sits on a M3X base but for now I use Nimbus there as well. My suggestion is if you have the time and willingness to experiment....bring some home to test...if not worth it to you than stick with the Nimbus and enjoy your system

    I seem to do some of these tweeksi in cycles but go long periods just not worrying about cable upgrades or footer changes

    Thanks. I'll check it out at a later point as there's not much point playing around with tweaks when I've already got an excellent set of isolation components and the system is yet to be moved to its longterm home.
