IMO, each one will sound different. I decided years ago...

...that the isolation or coupling of equipment was a black art and I wasn't spending many hundred$ on fancy feet. I do believe in isolating amps and other equipment with Herbies' Tenderfoots*, and I have dozens in my system. You might try the Wagner-brand isolation pads discussed here...
I'm now isolating amps from my carpeted floors (over a concrete slab) using these; can't say I hear a difference between that and my much-labored-over newish constrained-layer-damped amppad spiked to the concrete.

* 'Tenderfoot' is Herbies' trademark, and I've never seen him use the term 'Tenderfeet', so Tenderfoots it is.
