RE: Something Solid dissipating feet

I am not aware of that specific product, but balsa wood combined with "solid" supports should be very effective. Because the balsa wood will not store energy very efficiently. I use some industrial packing material, made to support very heavy yet fragile objects during shipping. Thus it's quite hard and solid yet amazing light in weight and thus unable to store energy, like styrofoam only much less susceptible to compression. It seems to work very very well under heavy components, like my turntables with slate plinths and preamplifiers or CDPs with added mass on the top cover. For one example, my preamp was incurably microphonic until I put some of this stuff underneath (and I did a few other things to the chassis itself).
