Message: Hi Steve-
I have some Spectron Musician III Ref 2 amplifiers that weigh 50 lbs each. Right now, I am fighting some upper midrange/lower treble aggression and congestion, which leads to a mild-to-moderate harshness and sibilance in this range, depending on the recording.
I am looking for footers to replace the stock footers and was wondering what you would suggest to use to address the harshness/sibilance, or simply to avoid adding to that problem, while clearing up the sound and providing improved clarity, detail, musicality and three dimensionality?
Webmaster's reply: Four Extra-Firm Tenderfoot isolation feet under each monoblock will isolate the amps superbly, bringing out more of their true inherent potential. Tenderfoot isolation feet have potential to improve or remedy each of the problems you've been fighting with.
Your audio system and all sonic qualities are not controlled solely by the amplifier, but is the sum total of all its parts, the vibrational environment, acoustic factors, and source electricity working together in synchrony. Addressing the amplifiers alone may or may not remedy the problems you've mentioned. You might need to isolate/decouple the speakers, isolate source components and preamp. Perhaps a mis-matched cable or interconnect is a culprit. Start with four Tenderfoot isolation feet under each amp, adjust the positioning and orientation of the footers for optimal result, and go from there. Might just be all you need to achieve a satisfactory level of listening pleasure.

Message: I received my Super Black Hole CD Mat yesterday, and I approached the evaluation basically the same way I approached the evaluation of SS-9 12AX7 dampers - expecting an incremental but not overwhelming improvement. I was wrong AGAIN ! This little donut is magic.On my CAL Delta transport it works miracles. I wont go into detail, but there is a stunning "naturalness" that was not ther ebefore. Each instrument has a life of its own now and have that live, you are there immediacy and detail. Halfway through my first test CD, I just went into right brain mode and fell into the music. No need to ask myself if it was better or just different. My music is so much more tuneful, melodic, whatever you want to use to describe it. I have spent maybe $60 on these products and EASILY gotten hundreds wort h of improvememnt. It;'s like getting new components every time. Miracles do happen and they cost about $30 each !!

Message: Hi Herbie,
Received my SS-9 12AX7 dampers yesterday. I promptly installed them on my Golden Dragons in my CAL Alpha DAC expecting an incremental improvement-boy was I wrong ! The change is nothing short of stunning. My jaw dropped. I have never heard such detail (in this system at least) and air, such precise location, the bass tightened up dramatically. I have a small room with Martin Logan Source speakers, but the depth and width of the sound stage are amazing. On several recordings I can literally "hear" the space between a capella voices, or the individual instruments in a string pizzicato. These little things are nothing short of a revelation. THANK YOU !!

Message: Tenderfeet is a great product. In addition to the sonic advantages, I use them to create better airflow around my components.

Message: Have used several of the Herbie isolation products on my mainly analog system and it does wonders at a price that should make other suppliers in this field blush from overcharging. specially the turntable isolation cups and balls add a lot of definition in all parts of especially already good records. I have now ordered my second shipment of products to isolate speakers and an Isotek equipment.

Message: My friend, Hernani Braga, is your fan and made me buy the grungebuster mat. Look forward to testing it on my system. He made me buy the Rega P9 too, and I'm very happy so far...
