AudioPrism Ground ControlPrice: $149.99 per pair

Website: www.audioprism.com

Doug said: There are many positive comments out there about AudioPrism’s Ground Controls, from reviewers and others who have already experienced them. My system, however, didn’t benefit from them, nor did a very different system. The Ground Controls indeed altered the sounds of both systems, but nothing I heard could be called a worthwhile improvement.

Read the Ultra Audio review.

The gist: Pass on this one.

The gist: ". . . didn’t work for me."

Uday said: Its freedom from the AC grid allowed it to provide the purest music signal, elevating my enjoyment of what truly matters: the music. Couple its performance with headphones to its qualities as a standalone preamplifier-DAC and you begin to see its value.

The gist: Batteries to charge-up your headphone listening.

201010_shiitPrice: $249

Website: www.schiit.com

Vade said: I’m impressed that Schiit Audio can produce a headphone amplifier for $249 that sounds and looks as if it costs $1000. And you don’t have to order it from some unknown Chinese company on eBay and pray you’ll actually see something for your money. If you need a good headphone amplifier at a price that seems silly cheap, I suggest you rush your order directly to Schiit via their website, before they come to their senses and raise the price.

The gist: Great price for a neat little headphone amp.

201007_sra_400w_300wPrice: $300 to $785, depending on size and complexity

Howard said: . . . the VR fp isoBASEs brought to my system increased transparency, resolution, and focus. Indeed, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that these products are fairly priced. Had you told me that someone had designed a custom-based isolation platform for one of my components and was willing to ship it to me in a beefy, custom-made wooden crate for as little as $300, I’d have said you were crazy as a soup sandwich.

The gist: Custom component isolation that doesn't break the bank.

stillpointsrack_300wPrice: $10,275

Website: www.stillpoints.us

Norm said: I suspected from the first listening session with my components on the Stillpoints rack that it was something special. You can’t see it working, but you sure can hear it.

Read the Ultra Audio review.

The gist: Stylish vibration control, but comes at a considerable cost.
