    Clay Appreciate putting 3 PSU's into the one unit wouldn't be as good as 1 x 3 PSU's, but as I was only looking to use them for my modem, switch and NAS (which happen to be sitting under the same desk) was hoping you still did the triple unit as it would certainly do a better job at powering them than the usual wallmart rubbish they come with. You're the expert mate and appreciate your feedback.

    Yep, I partly got the name of his developer, I think his first name was Noah, but didn't get a chance to speak to him as he had to hurry off and catch a boat somewhere (something about the weather turning bad) 🤪

    Mike can retro fit them to existing speakers or to new speakers, but as your question was related to costing specifically just for the footers that's where I can't help. Assume Mike will be along sometime with more info, but give him a shout and he'll be more than happy to help you. Regarding this thread, believe Daz started it not just for a sales thread, but also input for technical info (except for the Townshend he has on his ML5's I don't know any other similar footers out there).

    Mark I had these fitted as just one part of a large upgrade of my ML3's to ML5's. Would love to give you an answer, but the overall cost I had for the upgrade included Crossovers, Copper Faceplates, Driver connection rewiring, Spring (Isolation) Footers, etc., etc. Cheers John

    Boohoo I didn't want to have another 3 boxes under my desk in the study. I suppose no use asking why the 3 output unit was dropped? I'll be playing music via my Antipodes CX, which will have 2Tb SSD installed, but my other music streamed from NAS in the study (all via Roon), therefore don't have option of connecting directly (don't want to put NAS in my lounge room). Will need to wait for Clay to advise what he thinks my best options are (he's the expert so appreciate his advice, along with others here on SNA).

    @Gieseler Audio Clay Long time no speak. Do you still do your triple PSU? I've got a NAS, Netgear Switch & Telstra Modem in my study all feeding into my network, so wondering if adding your PSU would help the SQ (get ride of some of the crud these input into my network). FYI gear is: Synology DS916+ Netgear GS116 Telstra Frontier Modem (Technicolor DJN2130) Could give you a call, but thought asking here on SNA would be best if others thinking of doing the same. Not really sure what V & A each uses, and can find out if you think it's a good idea to use your PSU, and if you still do the triple PSU. Cheers John

    Roon

    Raff I've been looking at getting a Digione for outside (connect to my Denon AVR) & a Boss Player for my son's room (he can connect it to his CD player via RCA). I was even thinking of grabbing a MiniBoss so I can attach to the radio in my bedroom, but am I being silly here (or scatter cash). Devialet Expert Pro's will in the future be upgraded to RAAT so this means I could have multiple endpoints throughout the house (and outside) all playing the same music (nice wee bonus when having people round, etc.). Only one question (and sorry it's side tracking from Roon, but only looking at Allo because I have Roon), which would be more useful a Digione or Usbridge Be good to hear your thoughts when you get the Digione. Cheers John

    Ok guys and gals enough of the elocution lessons (how a Scotsman can do that is a contradiction) Getting back to the land of the sane (relatively) for myself it's probably hard to know what singularly the isolation footers make to the overall sound as my ML5's were a BIG upgrade. What I can physically see of them, and what it looks like they add (or actually subtract) I think they should be a given for anyone looking at an upgrade to their current ML3's or ML5's (don't think Mike has 2 foot springs available for an ML1 or ML2 upgrade 🤪). I wasn't sure how my good lady would take to them (looks wise) as she's not really into high end audio (she thinks listening to music via an iPad is great 😳), but out of the 2 things she liked about the ML5's over the ML3's is the Copper Tweeter Faceplate & the Spring Footers (these are the only 2 externally visible updates from ML3 to ML5 and both she likes). Appreciate looks isn't a deciding factor with anyone looking at the new footers, but just thought worth mentioning that even though they look 'chunky' it actually gives the speakers a more solid looking base, and if some need that wee bit of WAF doesn't do any harm. Do I think they would be a worthwhile upgrade (if each to their own can afford) then 110% recommendation from myself. Cheers John

    How much 'Wobble' does your Townshend give. With Mike's you don't need to touch it much for it to move, but not loose enough I have any worry about them falling over. My understanding it's for 3Hz isolation, that's bloody low frequency. I assume that means it isolates the speaker from transmitting any resonance to floor from 3Hz and above (no chance of that). Mike will have to pop in and explain (that's the best cattle class explanation I can do). Would also add their easy to slide about on a wooden floor. Not finger touch easy, but certainly not difficult for a 70Kg speaker (not 100% sure of their actual weight). PS Glad you brought the old Avatar back 👍
