Curious what others are using, if anything, between stand mount speakers and the stands?

I've used Herbies fat dots with some success, but am looking for other options. My stands are not equipped the spikes on the top plate.

I've used "Atacama Speaker Stand Gel Pads" - a relatively cheap option - they certainly didn't do any harm. As a bonus they are much less likely to damage the finish of your speaker.

I always use Blu-Tack. As long as you don't use too much, I've found it to be completely safe on a wide range of speakers including those with veneers.

Recycled rubber matting from work. Comes in about 1 meter square and about 1/8" thickness. Cut into 2" square pieces and use one per corner. No glue required as it is not slippery like felt. Works for me.

+1 Blue Tak or similar works well. I picked up this tip years ago from UHF magazine and found that it works very well.

Nothing special, but I float both speakers and stands on roller bearing platforms. There's a few of us here crazy enough to figure it out and do it.
