RE: Tube Preamp Vibration Control Suggestions?

This might be more pertinent if you still had your Premier 17LS, but, in addition to staying with the stock tube dampers in mine, I've tried Sorbothane footers (which softened the presentation too much), a 2"-thick maple block (effected some improvement in image focus and bass definition), and Aurios (improved focus at the cost of over-brightening the presentation), but found the best--and unfortunately costliest--solution in my setup to be four Stillpoints Ultra Mini footers. Detail, focus, soundstage, and bottom end definition all improved without adding the glariness I heard with the Aurios.

Don't know if the same would apply to the RP-5, so treat this as a for-what-it's-worth.
