What are all of the brass looking weights and what are they for that sit on top of most of your equipment?

When did you decide to place them there? and why?

love the Mapleshade isolation components. Are those their brass footers and weights I see? I've been a Mapleshade fan/customer for years. Nice to see a fellow Maple head.

"What are all of the brass looking weights and what are they for that sit on top of most of your equipment?

The brass objects are called heavyhat vibration controllers. These along with the maple platforms, vibrapod isolators and cones, and mapleshade isoblocks help keep down any enclosure vibrations from the a/v components that could possibly affect the audio especially at high volume. I listen to movies very loud and being in an enclosed 12 x 14 room everything is subject to vibration. As you see I'm using (2) 200/wpc amps for surround and 250/wpc x (3) for the front L R C speakers.

Believe me when I tell you I can turn up the volume to 80 db and the sound is perfectly clean with no extraneous noise or clipping!

This inquiry is for both you Andrew, and i30krab,

I have received some of the MapleShade catalogs. And was impressed with how they make their cds, recording techniques, etc. I have yet to purchase any of the music. Can you guys speak of the quality of their cd recordings, equipment and accessories, and why it seems many do not know the name "MapleShade?"
