    Looking nice.. But you could do with a rug on that wooden floor... You will have frequencies bouncing all over the place... quite a good upgrade IMO.

    I agree about a rug to dampen the acoustic. I am in the process of finishing my lounge refurb, and have despite good floorboards decided to spend on carpet for that reason.

    Currently, empty and unpadded it is very live on spoken voice.

    I found Soundcare's 'SuperSpikes' cured a lot of issues with suspended floors and tightened up bass very nicely. In fact added a lot of clarity overall.

    How are those Soundcare spikes any different to a normal spike + shoe? Just been looking at them and at first glance I assumed the black base was some kind of rubber/squishy material which would compress with weight. However, looks like that black part is just plastic and the spike shoe inside still touches the surface it is placed upon. Just looks like a normal spike + shoe but with a case built around it.

    They look nice (better than standard spikes) but not sure it would make a improvement for me as I have spikes with shoes and I've blu-tacked them down underneath.

    Perhaps it is the mild steel insert that the spike sits on? I really don't know. They were suggested to me so I tried them as not too expensive I got a full set. For the reason you mention I also was suspicious but needed to protect my floor from the standard M8 spikes I had and found the improvements I mentioned.

    I knew this would work well for you Alex. They don't look great admittedly, but to do an excellent job in this area doesn't require huge outlay.

    My Auralex Subdude XL platforms are brilliant (terrible name aside) and perhaps a touch more discreet-looking for home use.



    Improvements are always heard, whatever the speaker, when using them.

    Edit: apologies for massive picture!

    Congrats looks like a nice space.

    Any chance of being able to pull those speakers forwards a bit? Your room looks very similar to mine. Some good clearance from the fireplace is worth trying.

    Has anyone tried Audio serenity AS level2 isolation platforms? Can't seem to do a link I'm afraid basically they're granite slabs made to order,around £50?
