i seen setup that lift cable above floor, above table with Accessories Cable Elevators, isolation bases, cone.

in fact, you can do a simple test. ask your niece,nephew, son, daughter to shake the cable (not the connector but the cable)while you are playing your favourite song. Likelihood that you wont hear any difference!

i have tried shaking my amplifier, interconnect, speaker cable. the music still flows effortlessly thru the speaker

save the money.. in my opinion..

I use isolators to keep the cables out of the carpet. My isolators are scrap hardwood and didn't cost me a cent. If they work, fabulous, if not, I'm not out a cent. My kind of tweak!

Surely the carpet is the isolator, keeping the cable off the floor ?

btw, does anybody who owns a inFinite element rack, T@AC isolation rack / plinth, ginko.. etc feel the vibration on the equipment when playing music.

try play a song that has plenty of bass, then put your hand and feel it...

You can't really isolate the equipment from air borne vibrations when in the same room as the speakers. Racks can provide an escape route for the vibrations but only after it has impinged on the equipment. Racks can isolate equipment from the floor vibrations.
