you should try cross posting this over at the tube forum. Those guys are level headed, non bias or overly subjective. Most times when I post there I get an answer based in EXPERIENCE that is backed up with an explanation in engineering terms. Those guys ARE the ones designing tube amps!!!!
I know from experience that vibration control is an issue in speaker design. But a properly built cabinet usually fixes that problem. However some people have taken a simple problem and made a mountainous issue (and $$$) out of it. So take that to heart when reading how "any audiophile CAN'T live without this or that".
My two cents is there is a level of vibration in SOME gear, not all!! Don't start going down so many rabbit holes and enjoy your system before buying more stuff.

Actually I do use tube rings. The simple tan brown ones. Honestly in "my" setup I can't tell any difference. But I still use them on preamp tubes.
The way my hearing is going anyway. Tube rings aren't going to be the deal breaker on my stereo.
