    Symposium Ultra platform vs $69 Auralex Isolation platform

    Auralex Acoustics isolation platforms are excellent value for the money. I am using a few of them - a pair of ProPads, three BabyGramma v2s and one SubDude-II. In conjunction with Symposium Rollerblocks they provide better dynamics, lower background noise and generally fuller, richer, more...
