Use the maple shade system - perhaps Pierre will send you a reviewers set. Complient footers to my ears do exactly what Pierre says they will-trap the vibes inside the component (mushy sound). Try it and write a review.
Ironically footers and cones and such do little to prevent seismic/structureborne vibrations from getting up into the component in the first place. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. :-)
I've used inner tubes, seismic sinks, complient footers, string suspension and so on. None came close to the Mapleshade system. Another point-if we have an object floating on an pneumatic or other suspension device, will that object still be influenced by Airborne vibrations? Yes it will. So it seems to me an ideal isolation system has to deal with both structural and airborne vibrations. There's a whole lota shaking going on when we play music.
Airborne vibration is easy to deal with by damping. It's the low frequency structureborne stuff, the stuff that excites tonearms, cartridges and laser assemblies around 10 Hz that's the real difficulty. Airborne frequencies don't go that low.
