Fill Alternative

I know there is a lot of talk about sand vs lead vs kitty litter and all other sorts of materials and combinations, but I wanted to point out a different type that is a bit expensive, but has a completely different approach.

    This airy mass improves the audible (and inaudible/i]) sound quality and performance of any equipment rack and/or loudspeaker stand by reducing the detrimental effects caused from vibration.
    Great... now I need to listen for inaudible sound quality improvements?? If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it... Seriously though, I wonder what they mean by that.

    I was interested in a local used rack earlier this year that had this stuff in it. The rack had too many shelves for what I needed it for, so I passed. The guy that owned it said he filled it up around 50% with this stuff, per what was recommended. The rack owner said he was told that lead/sand can make it too dead. I almost posted a thread asking opinions on this stuff. I was interested in Jstas and F1nuts' opinions due to reading previous posts by them in regards to mass loading. I was under the impression that there was no such thing as 'too dead" when it comes to mass loading.
