Stillpoints is a company that makes feet for components, stands, and racks, all of which are designed to uncouple the component from the shelf or floor on which it is sitting.

The first photo is the Stillpoints Component Stand. It has either three or four legs (your choice), and will hold up to 300 pounds. The hub in the center is also vibration damping. You can slide the contacts between the component and the legs to fit the component. Price, $799.

The Stillpoints ESS (Equipment Suspension System) is shown below. Each shelf can support 75 pounds, with the total capacity being 400 pounds. Although it is arguable as to whether solid state components can benefit from uncoupling from the floor, tubes really do benefit because they can act like microphones when they are subjected to vibration. That is why a tube preamp is shown on the ESS here. The ESS as shown (you can add shelves) retails for a little over $3,000.
