We are sending out a lot of the DiDs and have not finished the instruction cards for them, so here is card with the basics.

thanks!

Formatting is a bit off, Lou. Maybe it needs to be a PDF first or something?

Have mine under my mono blocks - natural tonality in spades
I have another set coming to experiment with sources and the pre amp

I have a set under each AtmaSphere amp.  I haven't had a chance to do much critical listening, but so far I like what I'm hearing.  Because I need my amps a little higher, the DIDs are actually on top of some other ball-bearing isolation devices (Isopods) that I'll be reviewing at some point.

They are not for use with speakers. There are different forces at play and they really don't help under a speaker. That being said  I have been working on a design that does work at least with my speakers. So far we are making good progress and should have some prototypes ready in a couple of months.

Lou,  Can you give us some insights on your current thinking of what types of devices work for your speakers?

We are currently working on prototypes for speakers, so far so good  :thumb:
We should have a couple variations available in about two months. 

thanks,
lou


ps I have had one person put the DiD's under their platform that their TT is on and they said it worked out great. I would love to get more feedback on that if others get a chance to try?

Good to hear, Lou. We'll stay tuned for the next progress report.

Got mine today. They look great. Need to decide which piece of equipment goes first - my amp, preamp, or phono preamp?

Try them all out
Are you using tubes?  Generally they are the most sensitive
My guess would be the pre amp

What gear are you using?

Anyone have dimensions on these?

I need some footers for my Lampizator DAC, which has some long native feet installed.

They just might be. I tried some Herbies Tall Tender Feet which are 1.18 inches, and they were just a bit short.

How many would you recommend for a component that its over 20 inches long? Or, is three sufficient for everything?

The amp should go first, maybe. AVA 600R; it's a hybrid with 12AT7s in the front. Then I think the XP-15 phono pre since it's dealing with very small signals. I guess the XP-20 might be last by that logic, but wouldn't doing the preamp first - even if the amp has tubes in it - make more sense?

It really varies for each system which component with DiDs makes the biggest difference.  It seems that for some reason DAC's are first  but I have heard it make a huge difference with some tube power amps.... I would through assumptions out the window and just try each piece.
thanks,
lou

Three should be just fine, we have used three with much larger gear.

Lou has obviously had a vast amount of experience developing, testing and demoing these
Being so system, rack and room dependent definitely try them with each component


trial and error - live with each for a few days
Note the changes with each then send Lou your next check for another order

Don't sell a phono pre short
Particularly if you are mostly analog.
The signal in a phono stage are the most sensitive and have the highest gain
