Hi everyone

This question is aimed at Steve Williams or anyone else who may know the answer.

I’m a big fan of the Center Stage 2 footers. My dealer told me that they were not really designed to be used under speakers or turntables. I also understand Joe came out with the LS versions specifically designed for speakers. Are any of the Center Stage footers designed to go under a turntable? Thank you.

Best regards
Scot

I’m only seeing this . Yes the LS series is for under speakers. However to date there is not a center stage footer designed for under turntables. I do know Joe talked about it with me several months so never say never

Hi Dr. Joe & Mr. Steve, I'm a big fan of Center Stage 2 footers.
Currently I'm setting up my new audio rack and going to fit all of my equipments with CS2M.
So could you please help me to give your advice about the following questions:
* Question 1: Can I use CS2M 1.5 with these equipments and which is the size will give the best effect result?
- L10 preamp (20kg)
- L10 power supply (23kg)
- MSB Select 2 DAC unit (11kg)
- MSB Monobase unit (20kg)
* Question 2 for Mr. @Steve Williams : Could you share your experience about where is the best position to place CS2M 1.5 under Taiko Extreme?
Thank you very much for your help.

I would use at the very least CS2M size 1.0 under all mentioned products however I have to tell you that more and more users have gone to size 1.5" under units of this weight with extraordinary great results. I would not use 0.8's under your mentioned gear

As for placement under the Extreme I use CS2M size 1.5 just inside all four stock feet and moved as far forward in the front and as far backward in the rear so that the feet are just under the edge of the bottom

there are 3 sizes of CS2M
0.8"
1.0
1.5

The size refers to the height of the footer

Thank you for your advice.
One more question sir, what is the priority between the main unit and the power supplier to place the CS2M 1st?

I did power supplies last in my system

I usually recommend that the user start at the the source and work outwards to the amps and then finally the power supplies
