hi
after building my own speaker stands i find myself wondering if there is any difference between the following products
Fisual Round Self Adhesive Isolation Pads For Audio Equipment.
priced at £ 8.49 for a pack of four.
or just plain old rubber feet priced at £ 3.00 for 40

both item of similar size approx 10mm high 30mm dia both made from rubber, any thoughts ?

I use a lot of cheap rubber feet or doorsteps in my set-ups to create air gaps and isolation between and underneath various components.

I've never used the fisual pads. I am guessing that they are softer, so would possibly be a bit more flexible and absorbing?

It depends what you are trying to achieve as to which solution would be appropriate.

I use the Fisual pads under my KEF R Series speakers which are mounted on my cabinet. I get no resonance from the cabinet, which itself is of a very heavy build quality. Wether or not they enhance or protect audio performance in such a position I don't know as they were fitted the day the speakers arrived. It's something I've always done. Looks nicer than blutac.

It always helps if you post links to the product so people know exactly what they are. ;)

I have the Fisual Isolation pads between all my speakers and whatever they are resting on.
The front pair on stands. The centre speaker on my AV stand. My surrounds against the walls. I had used blutack before on the front pair at least. The pads seem are a more elegant solution.
No experience with rubber pads to compare.

The fisual pads are ideal and will suit any audio application. I cant speak for any alternatives. I don't think £9 is a lot of money in the grand scheme of things. I used to work for the company that sells them so used to use them all the time.
