You wouldn't want the damper in the middle of the glass as you'd possibly be splitting one glass vibration into two equal smaller ones. You want it at an odd location like 1/3 or 1/5 from the top.

I find it to be a bit different when you have that narrower top section. And every amp is a bit different as is the isolation due to shelving etc. I suspect Ed did some experimenting and decided on that.

Agreed; ultimately, use your ears! I was just pointing out the theory behind not having it in the middle.

Yeah, I think most of using Halos have found that as a good starting point, but experimentation is best. I have some bottle shaped rectifiers and regulators that sound best with the damper in about the middle. Or maybe. The difference is so subtle it may be just imagining.

One difference that is NOT subtle is the positioning of Iso-Cups under the Torii amps. Wow. An inch one way or another really makes an impact, at least in my system (and others on the forum have reported similar results). I didn't really want to believe it at first, but I can't ignore it.

So you're using the Iso-Cups and one of the many balls rather than Tender Feet? Steve Recommended Tender Feet to me rather than the cups, but didn't say why.

I've been using the isocups under my zen on top of a coreaudio amp stand and they are the best isolation device I've ever used (not that I have tons of experience). Currently have two halfway between my rectifiers and the individual OC2 tubes and two under the transformers about 1.5 inches from the back and 2 inches in from the side forming a trapezoid. I also have 4 holding a 3 inch maple stand which my rega p6 sits on.  If I ever have a tube humming or buzzing (rare but does occur) maneuvering the isocup under or around said tube always fixes the problem.

LR, Tenderfeet are great, and not as expensive, but the Iso-Cups outperform them in my opinion, under most components, and they simply SLAY under the Torii.

I was leaning towards the Iso-Cups under the Mystery amp when it shows up. Tenderfeet under my Oppo Universal.
