Hi All

As per subject, I could do with a set of spikes to go under my old Martin Logans. But of course it's a US size - 3/8" x 16 (TPI) - so your average UK M6 or M8 spike won't fit.

Anyone got any ideas, or even any in the back of a cupboard that they want rid of? BigGrin

As I've said earlier, I suspect I may end up with Townshend isolators, but they're a hell of a price so I'd kinda like to try spikes first. Speakers are currently sat on big round adjustable feet (that look like they've come off an office table) on top of carpet and underlay and a concrete screed floor.

Thanks!
Pete

Herbie¨s has another solution for spikes if you choose the adhesive option:

Thank you! But as I wrote in another post, I actually went with the Townshend seismic podiums in the end. A lot more expensive BigGrin But very nice!
