Titanium disc with broad depression allows use with rounded feet as well as conventional cones. Great for heavy turntables, amplifiers and other components. Extra-thick dBNeutralizer pad provides grounding for vibration drainage. Works as a two-way decoupling barrier also, preventing vibrations from permeating into the audio rack or floor and subsequently reverberating back to the component or to other components, and vice-versa.
For use on virtually any kind of shelf, platform, stand, bare or thinly carpeted floor. Fat Grounding Base does not mar or smudge. Suitable for components of virtually any weight.
1.57" wide by .375" tall (40mm x 9.5mm).
Bottom of base to bottom of disc depression: .315" (8mm).

I put the Fat Grounding Base discs under a Mapleshade rack, which was already very solid but wobbled a tiny bit on its rounded feet and the turntable still suffered occasional disturbance from careless footsteps. With the discs, the rack is impermeable to external vibration. You can hear the difference. Thanks, Herbie.
Fat Grounding Base
I recently added these bases to my system rack and I think they do a fine job preventing vibration up the food chain back to my components. I wasn't deeply concerned before I added a new REL sub, but that device adds a lot of pressure and vibration to the room. Actually, I use a few Herbie's products to control vibration, which I think degrades the sound quality that reaches my ears. I'm not really a "it's pretty cheap so try it" person. I'm more of a "does it work" person. I do some research and consider each application; I have cheap solutions and expensive solutions. That said, who doesn't like an affordable improvement? These bases work great.
