View attachment 22375 Does the isolation stands make a significant sound difference from just using the provided spikes for decoupling?

Yes they helped create a much deeper and wider sound stage IMHO. Made the speakers Less Boomy in the Bass Section also. If that makes sense. Not to mention much easier to slide around and adjust speaker positioning in the room for setup. I basically can put heavy duty furniture movers under the Podiums and they slide very easily on the carpet. Before the ML spikes would just puncture right through the moving pads and I had to use metal in between which was a pain.
