I was looking through the forum a few weeks ago and there was a link for a place to buy feet to put on the bottom of you HTPC that matches other AV equipment. Now I can't find the link. Can anyone help me.


Thanks

If all else fails, you can always go to your local electronics repair shop and see if they will sell (or give) you the feet off of a fried receiver. I guess that's what I'm going to do....

check out www.audioadvisor.com 's "Isolation Components" section. They may have something that will work for you. Good luck!

Man, there's some snake oil up there at audioadvisor.com.


"Improve the sound of CD players, CD transports, laser disc players, digital converters, preamps, power amps, tuners, and more with new AudioQuest Big Feet now made of advanced energy absorbing Sorbo Gel. "


They're polyurethane feet. 4 for $69. What a joke. Do they sell green markers too?

Yes, I believe they do sell green markers as well.

Do what I did...cut them off an old stereo receiver. Srcounge the garage sales, pawn shops, flea markets, etc. Find an old receiver for cheap...even broken...and take the feet off that. A lot of them screw in so you may have to drill a hole or two in teh bottom of the HTPC chassis but it will look great.

How about a direct link to the RatShack item. I've just spent 30 minutes trying to find it online...

I too am looking for some feet to use with my new Component Style HTPC Case . I have been considering the vibrapods http://www.vibrapod.com or these Sorbothane IsoPods http://www.value-audio.com/access.htm


The trim kits sgriffin mentioned might work with the Isopods, but the vibrapods are larger than 2" dia.


It is important to isolate the case. Cheap feet on most A/V gear does not really isolate well.


I may just machine some custom covers for the vibrapods.
