RE: Sheesham / Indian Rosewood Platform

I am also a fan of BDR cones and use them in combination with other materials beneath components. I'd like to thank you again for your recent recommendations. I now have two Oyaide Black Mamba V.2 cables feeding my ARC SP16 and VS55. They are a significant improvement over an Empirical Audio and an Alan Maher cable which they replaced.

I also have incorporated the 40 mm carbon fiber discs into my system to good effect. I was wondering, in addition to the usual suspects, have you ever experimented with thin brass sheets? I find that these can provide a unique benefit in the right location. One example, beneath the spikes of my Sonus Faber Cremona floor standers I employ two 40mm carbon fiber discs with non slip feet at the rear (the heavier side) and two ebony cups with a thin sheet of Herbie's material beneath, and under that a thin square of brass next to the oak floor. These brass shims are quite thin. In this application they are just thick enough to be stiff however in other applications I've used the even thinner, foil like, brass material. If the brass is too thick the benefit is lost.
