A couple of questions: 1. Does putting an amp on a stand make any difference, sound-wise? My hi-fi speakers are "spiked" to isolate them from the floor and that does make a clear difference. however, other than making the controls easier to access, would a stand be worthwhile? 2. Are there any proprietary amp stands available (in the UK) or is a sturdy chair / side-table / crate good enough? This is partly about ergonomics as there's a small "lip" on the top of my amp and the control dials and labels are mostly hidden if the amp is on the floor.
