Only black is truly uncolored. Silver has glare.

"It's like, how much more black could this be? and the answer is none. None more black."

Can someone tell me if I go balanced in, can I get a signal out of the tape loop rca output, or will it only come out the xlr loop out?

Because I use my MacMini as a music server to my headphone gear, I decided to put it on the middle shelf of my audio rack between my BHSE's amp section and PSU.

With both units of the BHSE having spiked feet, I had a small stand made to rest my MacMini on and had spiked feet made similar to the ones on the BHSE.

I had some spare isolation cones so used them with that stand.

 

I got the stand from the same place that did my audio racks, and the spiked feet [ which are made of stainless steel ] I got from the same engineer that did the brackets for my 009's and LCD-XC's headbands I did.

 

 

Here are some photos of that mini stand with my MacMini and one on my audio rack.

Nice craftsmanship David

That for sure is the most high end custom base a mini Mac has ever rested on :beerchug:.

 

A suggestion though :

In general the concept of the feet is to drain mechanical vibration out of the equipment and protect it from picking up outside vibration. When the spikes are isolated from the platform below, they might not do their job in this respect. Have you tried to use the spiked feet without the cones? Of course the surface below will get scratches if the equipment is pushed without lifting it but just to experiment if there's a sonic difference, I would give it a try. Especially with the BHSE itself.

 

If there was any difference, your set up should be able to reveal it.

 I would never put the spikes on the wooden shelves of my audio rack icebear, but regarding the isolation cone, the hole where the spike fits in has rubber inside , so there should be no unwanted vibration.

I got some little black metal disks for my BHSE and PSU to sit upon (wooden shelf).  It appears that audioadvisor does not carry them any more though. I have not been convinced to spend megabucks on anything other than pretty spike feet myself.  Most of my gear I put sorbothane type disks/feet under.

looks amazing - all your gear looks immaculate. I read that you sold your GSX to a lucky headfier - hope the sale went well. Anything on the horizon for you in the near future?
