Hi all! Here's the deal:

I'm sure a lot of us have heard aboutvibrapods. These $6 wonders are made to reduce vibrations in our equipment, giving us better sound.

I am proposing a bulk order of these, possibly saving us a good amount of money on shipping, etc.

This is all preliminary. I don't know if the discount will be worthwhile, etc. I just want a rough idea of how many of us there will be. Nothing's final. This is just a rough thing.

Note: I don't mean to infringe upon the Outlaw buy in any way.

I can't justify the Outlaws or Vibrapods because my source sucks so much, but I have to compliment you guys on the whole group-buy thing. Hopefully someone'll do one after I get a decent source.

Not at all! I encourage more group buys -- I've been having a lot of fun putting the Outlaw buy together, and we're all going to be getting a great deal.

I got an e-mail back from a dealer. Only a $1 discount if we get 100. . .

that would be a $100 discount. Not sure if its worth it, when you factor in shipping to everyone.

If there's a Groupbuy I'll get 8. My Amplifier weighs 80lbs and has spiked feet what model should I get 5?

guys, so far we have about 20 feet. That's not enough. I talked to the owner. We can get down to $4. I need a rough estimate!

How many orders do you need to drop the price to $4?

I just called the guy again. If we get 150 feet, we get them for 4.50.

Guys, 20 feet just doesn't cut it!

In my opinion, the Viprapods are nothing to get too excited about. For the same price you can make some DIY Daruma clones that work much better. Buy some larger tablespoons for the concave surface and some steel bearings and you can put together some pretty nice isolation devices. Do a search at Audio Asylum in the Tweaks section for DIYumas or Darumas.

Sorry guys. 20 is not going to cut it. I think we'll be shutting this down. . .

I'll check those DIY ones out. . .

I like the idea of group buys, but it just seems like it's a lot of effort for little return with the Vibrapods, seeing how relatively little they cost.

I would like to bring to your attention some alternate sorbothane mounts that Edmund Optics carries for $16 for a package of 4. The are not quite the same size as the Vibrapods, and only come in one hardness, but the price is right. I've been thinking about buying them myself...
