Boy, Oh Boy! Towshend!

OK, I have elevated my belief in isolation.  For the first time I feel I have entered the Hi Fidelity zone.  About 3 weeks ago I purchased the Townshend Speaker Bars.  My muddy bass cleaned up, I have better imaging, clarity, precision, speed and focus.  My buddy who is not not into HiFi but has followed my adventures, was blown away.  He said, "OK, now I get why you do this."  Best money spent! 

Denon DL160 (re-tipped by Soundsmith) > Thorens TD150 > McIntosh 8900 > ALK Extreme Slope in Klipsch Belles.  Just another step in the long journey, but a Giant Step for my enjoyment.  My system took a large enough step forward that I am drawn into listening to all of my 2K plus albums again just to enjoy them in a new way. Great people to deal with too, even with Brexit messing things up.  Highly recommended!
I am not associated with them in any way, just want to pass it on.

That's good to hear, I'm looking forward to receiving my Podiums (waiting on shipment from UK).

size 4?  The beauty of the Townshend that it makes every one of your upgrades better. From a fuse to a power supply. The Podiums really should be the first upgrade people make. Unfortunately for me it was my most recent. But if I would have ever known the difference it would have been the Podiums before any dac, preamp etc.  The Podiums allow you to really listen to every piece in the chain   Would have been perfect to audition equipment with them in place 

you will have a big smile shortly after install. Money well spent. Not sure of the cost of your speakers but if the Podiums where 10% of their  cost you are getting a hell of a return on your dollar. 

Yes, getting the size 4 podiums, the SCM100 towers come in at 68kg and have a fairly large footprint.
Have increased anticipation with all the strong endorsements.

Hi all,

 I am very interested in the Podiums and I am about to order them.
My only hesitation is the size. The base of the size 4 is matching exactly the depth of my speakers and is a bit wider ( so adding the pods area it looks like a good match) whereas the size 5 will give me more room under the speakers.
in terms of weight both are ok ( my speakers are 320 lbs each…).
 I am more inclined to order the size 4 but what would be recommended ?
Reach out to the pros at Townshend. They will guide you. The footprint of the Podium is pretty large so you may want to go with the 4’s if in fact they will fit your speaker.
