Q. Should I have Spike & Discs or Buffers?
A. The spikes and disks are to couple the stands to the floor and rubber buffers help to isolate the stands from the floor so giving slightly different effects on the speakers but it is very subjective and well opinionated in the forums. Some think spikes and disks others favour buffers.
Either will be fine on a wood floor as long as you use the spike shoes supplied with the spikes.

Q. What role do Isolation Plinths have?
A. Plinths offer isolation for your audio equipment, providing accurate and noiseless sound, enhancing performance and decreasing noise transmission. Our isolation plinth is ideal for isolating individual speakers from unwanted vibration and resonance.
