Has anyone directly compared Symposium roller blocks vs stillpoints under a component? I would be interested in your findings. I use the series 2 rollerblocks but have been curious about the stillpoints.

Which model of Stillpoints? I like the Roller Balls over the original Stillpoints cones, but the latest generation Stillpoints are excellent. As with any isolation footer, performance will be based on the specific situation.

I've used the Rollerblocks series 2 with steel and tungsten balls. These are really good but can be unstable with certain components (where weight is not evenly distributed) or heavy power cables.

The Stillpoints Ultra SS are slightly better than the Rollerblocks because they're stable and height adjustable. I continue to use the Symposium shelves and some Stillpoints.

However, most of my footers are from AmCan. In my system, the large Amcan copper footers are slightly better than the Ultra SS (lower noise). The bonus is that the AmCan they're less expensive (very well-made) and come with 100% money-back guarantee.

Which particular Stillpoints model you have in mind as the price and performance gain is very large between each model.

Watch out for fake Stillpoints products out there if you are buying used.
