Are these spikes height adjustable? It doesn't say

That’s the base, not spikes. The base is made out of metal and with metal ball bearings to absorb the shocks , absorbs vibration. Can be used as base with spiking system on CD , bluray players, It can also be used on power conditioners, power amplifier...

I have the power amplifiers sitting on these anti shock ball bearing base at the moment

You can actually swap out the footers for spikes type to lift it up, but not much, then have the footers beneath that...

It does improve for me, as my floor is laminated timber wooden material, surface is much more reflective, so the spikes with those ball bearing base helps

If you are on a marble floor, don’t waste time, just go with the normal footers that come with it

Wow just tried this footers, boy oh boy, they work like magic! Quite good , especially for the source Oppo 205, processor Lyngdorf

SOLID stuff from divini ! Highly recommended

The smaller version should be good for subs



We could tell instantly the improvement, we even tried one of these on the hard disk, seriously... it improved ! Can’t believe

Just unboxed mine, going under Oppo 205, kinda unbelievable this footers! Instant impact and improvement

Loaned home some of these to try as well, tempted to move in 3 below the centre speakers behind the AT screens

These are the smaller versions as seen on pics



The bigger ones can go under the subwoofer as footers, trust me, it’s definitely better than the Auralex type footers

I am also using the SP 40 for my Oppo 203 and the DD3 for my old sub. They definitely work.

Power la u, I just found out only , after coming back from NGSK place! Solid !

His set up is TOP notch, anyone needs to check out rythmik F18 should visit him, beautiful sound, clean, fast, accurate , superb transient, good decay and free of resonance, good room I must say.

But still after putting the footers under the Oppo, we still got and heard so much improvement, kudos !

Good stuff! Highly recommended to be used with the source player or processor

For the price of the SP-40, it’s a no brained addition. For the DD3, they are even cheaper and definitely works well for sub. I have it on so much audio stuff in my house like my Sony Soundbar, it’s sub and it’s rear speaker, JBL Link 300, Google Home mini, Bluetooth speaker, StarHub Android TV box, etc. All saw improvement.

The 3 mini ones goes onto my Super tweeter now, testing phase



A single footer goes underneath the hard disk, for playbacks vide the Oppo 205 USB media

Finally the main one goes under Oppo 205



Good to note that the base is on TOP and the rubber stuff at the bottom, this placement, so I’m having the ball bearing steel base beneath it

It works ! Definitely not snake oil, fantastic upgrade for the price, pristine and crystal clear instruments and vocals, love it man!


Good stuff ! Will decouple for my venture speakers when I do up the AT screen, awesome

Anyone tried this footers for subs ? Quite sure it will be good !

How much is the SP-40? 1 piece $150? So 1 box of 3 is $450?

If I remember correctly, SP-40 is $150 for a set of 3

DD3 is $150 for a set of 8

IMHO, These are no brainer footers.

PcKing, what benefits did u notice with these footers ? Improved resonance? Where did you place them and how did u place it ?

We placed it under Oppo 205 and tested

I noticed the vocals were much improved, less smearing, better control for imaging, can hear a clear seperation of all the instruments playback, especially those Chinese type of musical instruments ...

Couldn’t believe it was so good, but this one was very obvious, with and without , instantly we could all tell... can’t believe this SP-40

🤔 still trying to figure out the physics behind...
