    So, how did the sound change?

    Can you give it a rest, Bud? The guy is not a clever wordsmith when in comes to reviews, or perhaps he just doesn't want to offer one up at this time. Cut him a bit of slack, would you please?

    LOL. No, that was a basic question of an audio tweak. It either made a difference, or it didn’t. If it did then how did it change. This is an audio forum, not a furniture forum.

    Did covering up the blue lights on your Pass amps make a difference in sound quality

    Asking for a friend

    It made the listening experience much more pleasant. When I listen at night I only have an 18” fluorescent light on in the kitchen. The lights on the amps are like car headlights coming at me. After covering them the listening experience became much more pleasant. So, the music sounds better. Much better. :)

    I have the SVS soundpath feet. They made the bass much more balanced. It blended the towers with the sub more and with better imaging.

    On the towers, I have the Gaia II feet, but they connect with the carpet spike discs from isoacoustics so they are essentially coupled to the sub floor, but the fee themselves are not a rigid structure. They changed the sound for me also. Better midrange bass and again, more balanced through the lowers octaves.

    I am a believer in these tweaks as they have presented gains in my system. They are not for everyone.

    So, now your speakers rock back and forth. Just what you don't want.
