I think when any of us "Armchair Engineers" can do better.....then it is WE who should invest our money, take the risks, and launch a product that sets the Audio Industry on it's proverbial ear.
"Isolators" are not a new concept. There's probably 50 of them in your home already, installed in home appliances, etc. Out in the driveway....your Car has a few! Engine Mounts, Shock Absorbers, etc.
Just try driving around with a V8 mounted on "Tip Toes"!!!
Vibration Isolation has been used in almost countless applications for the better part of 100yeaars,, and IMO....disputing SVS's accessory offering is to tell a Century's worth of engineers (With Peer Review no less) that their "science" was dead wrong. Only in an Audio Forum can such "myths" can be revealed!!!! (while others are propagated as being some sort of "Truth")
Myrtle Wood Pucks for your Amplifiers anyone? Harvested from an Enchanted Forest? I'm sure the Scientific Community is majorly excited about those as being the "New Frontier"
My Subs sound fabulous in my Music System. I bought
the SVS product to perhaps shut my "China Cabinet" up a little bit, and to do so in much the same way as the engine mounts in my Truck help keep my Teeth in their sockets. They (SVS) have earned my Trust, and they DON'T sell snake oil.
If the Isolators aren't your cup of Tea fine. Don't buy them, Simple enough yes? Perhaps a $2500 AC Cord is a better option. LOADS of complimentary "peer review" on those eh?
