Hey Art:
I relayed your "floating idea" of adding the T Refs to your setup, and your wife's response, to my wife of 22 years. Her response, "HE SHOULD HAVE THEM"...

Yes, Wayne - the Ones are very satisfactory indeed. I am sure that we would enjoy the Refs a bit more. But, for the time being, I shall be content with my Ones and my lovely and knowing bride.

For we hapless males of long matrimonial status, the process has been to learn to understand the concept of "Points". We earn points and we spend points. Frequently, we expend points without knowing that we are so doing - thus it is always good to boost the supply of points whenever possible.

One other point about "Points" -- regarding earning and expending points, the rate of exchange is never equal.

For you younger guys -- take in these words of wisdom from your elder buddy and go and do likewise.

Art, the Elder (about to turn 76).

I decided to try the GAIAs, knowing I can use them with my 2s now and someday with the TRefs as well. Can’t really a/b test given the act of having to change the feet around (vs. the dealer demos where they could switch between speaker pairs) but golly if I don’t notice a difference. Maybe its placebo effect or wishful tweaking thinking, but I have noticed the removal of some glare at the high end and smear in the middle.

My set up is on tile floor in a new area of the house so well built, however the whole floor is a bit flexible as its over a basement using structural OSB beams and I noticed a lot of vibration around the speakers.

I have gone from the supplied rubber feet (sounded mushy), to MapleShade platforms with heavy brass feet (didn’t help much) to the supplied spikes. Spikes made a decent improvement, and now the GAIA feet seem to have cleaned the sound up further and the vibration around the speakers is pretty much gone entirely. Interested if anyone else tries these kinds of tweaks over time and now I’m dreaming of upgrading source (Naim SuperUniti) and to the TRefs.:) :) :) :)

I'm very happy with my Home Depot Round-head bolt solution. Much less expensive and very stable - also kind to my tile floor and would be equally kind to hardwood. If you're interested, find my thread on using these very inexpensive round-head bolts in place of the spikes.
