I just removed the cone feet from my Aries 1, and the threaded rubber isolators than screw onto them (thereafter hidden within the plinth of the Aries) look to be the same as those on the Prime. Does the Symposium Acoustics replacement isolator fit the Aries 1 as well?

I would give Symposium a call but I do know that they fit the Aries 3 (I did this swap out for a friend).

As I said, there were no question asked! I didn't ask and neither did he. Sorry!

Thanks Brf, I'll do that. It had occurred to me, but I thought "Naw, Peter can't know the design of the foot on every single VPI model". Perhaps he does! I'll let ya'll know what he says. I'm also looking into both the GAIA III and Townshend Audio Seismic Pods as possible replacement feet.

When you call Peter, have the dimensions of your current bumper, that way if he is unfamiliar with the Aries 1, he can cross reference the dimensions with that of the Classic and Prime inserts. I have no experience with the Townshend when used as a TT footers, but the GIAA work well with VPI tables.

Here's what Peter told me: He believes someone had installed the Classic/Prime Footer Damping Kit on an Aries 1. I told him the stock isolator screwed into my Aries 1 plinth and cone feet is 1" in diameter and 3/4" tall, and he said he thought his isolator was 1" x 1". There is a slight difference between the Classic and Prime versions, and I think the Classic version is more appropriate for the Aries. The two are priced at $249 and $225 (I don't recall which is which) for a set of four. The GAIA III (for loads up to 70lbs.) is available for $199 for a set of four, and may or may not provide better isolation than the Symposium Acoustics Damping Kit. Then there is the Townshend Audio Seismic Pods. Choices, choices!
