Stack Audio Auva Isolator


I just ordered a set of these. They are supposed to be better than the Iso-Acoustics or even the Townshend podiums for speakers.

Anyone try these yet?

Definitely need to update my system page 😊

Major component upgrades to include one of a kind top shelf builders; Radu Tarta 4P1L DHT Tube Pre-Amp and Ken’s outstanding 300b PP 20 Watts Mono Blocks Amps from Otoman Labs, Japan.

painter24,

I also have the Stack Auva EQ underneath my Lumin X1. They replaced a Critical Mass CM 2M 1.5" footers. They seem to be just as good if not better.

So, I moved the Critical Mass footers to another component. Two upgrades for the price of one!

nwres,

Did you get the Stack Audio footers? Anyone else?

I still am very impressed with them. Consider that the component footers (Stack Auva EQ) for a set of 4 costs way less than one Critical Mass footer!

Yes, the AUVA 100's arrived Monday. So far I have compared several tracks I know well and that I felt could sound better. Along with tracks that reviewers used to describe the AUVA sound. The AUVA's are besting the Podiums in clarity. Not night and day, but instruments and vocals are more clear. And tracks that sounded a little boomy before now have better low end articulation with no boom. One of the reviewer's test tracks, No Time To Die by Billie Eilish (not on my radar before, but I get it now) sounded fine with the Podiums. And with the AUVA's her voice/lyrics, which was not that easy to understand before, was cleaner and the vibrato was easily distinguishable and her voice is now floating in space better. The orchestral section was a little cloudy before, and now clean. Soundstage width is about the same, but depth is slightly improved. For me, complex music is the most improved, where smaller simpler music less so, or not significant. I took notes on my test tracks with the Podiums and then with the AUVA's. Have not switched back to the Podiums yet. 125 pound speakers and carpet spikes on the AUVA's is a chore to swap. All digital so far, Qobuz and SACD. No vinyl yet, but I will get to it.

Has anyone tried the lowly AUVA 50s? For the "bargain" price, are they in the neighborhood of their bigger brothers?
