Coupling, decoupling, and damping...

can all have positive effects in many cases. I use all 3 in various locations. One manufacturer's explanation for the efficacy of isolation bearings, such as Aurios or Rollerblocks, is that such devices decouple electronics from the supporting surface in the horizontal plane, where most environmental vibration occurs. Vistek (I think that's the name) made isolation bearings for semiconductor manufacturing equipment before they offered products for audio use (Aurios). The intent was to prevent horizontal vibrations from entering the equipment from the environment. I suspect that the brush tweak behaves very much like isolation bearings with some damping thrown in.
