There is a guy in Germany who sells replica ms cu-180 gun metal copper mats. They are supposed to be excellent.

Hi JBI bought a set of the isolation feet from Kridon. For the $$, they sound really good.Did you not buy the SL 1200 feet with the M6 screws on top - they screw directly into the M6 threads in the plinth.
