I am currently also talking to Dan at Edensounds myself about possibly fitting a set on my Avenger. Have you guys had a chance to form an opinion yet?

Hello Jmcox, just started listening with Terrastones. I have a pretty good system and I have been doing tweaks as we all do. My last tweak was #4 silk thread instead of rubber belts and there DEFINITELY was a noticeable improvement in blacker background and detail. I think this can be attributed to less motor noise (and AC wall vibration noise) being transmitted to table. Now with the Terrastones I have even more of what I noticed with the silk thread. I believe I am getting even less noise that would have come from traveling through normal Prime feet. I have even more air around voice and instruments. Soundstage is deeper(not to be confused with wider). My table is mounted on my wall and being in Texas AC is always running and of course vibrations travel across the wall. I have a maple block and Symposium Seque ISO to minimize these type of effects but with the addition of tweaks like silk thread and the Terrastones I believe I am further mitigating and noise that might silll make its way to the table. I actually noticed improvements before Preamp warmed up. Just my $0.02, for what it is worth.

Best,

Mike in Austin

Hello Jim:

Yes, that is it but Dan helped me get the exact one. I do not know how to populate all the pull downs. Just give him a call he is very helpful.

Best,

Mike
