    Thanks John, I agree that's a great tip!
    I had a local slate/worktop company cut 2 bits of granite from a worktop offcut
    and that's what sits on my monitors. I got some thin foam liner from a fabric
    store to go underneath & protect the speakers. Then they're on iso stands which
    are each on a concrete breeze block on my desk. I wrapped the blocks in funky
    paper to keep the environment vibing. 🙂
    The iso stands came with the speakers as a deal, then I did the granite, then
    the blocks. Each stage was a notable improvement in definition and stereo placement.
