"God gave you this power for good - not jazz!" - Homer Simpson
It has been awhile since I bought some pucks, but I recall buying a butt load used from a resale sporting chain for twenty bucks. I used them to float walls, float the drum riser, and make a bunch of amp isolators for my old studio, and they worked great!
The old Boogie Colosseum cabinets used to have similar rubber bumpers mounted to the bottom for decoupling them, and was a brilliant idea that got lost along the way. If you don't mind a couple of holes on the bottom of your cab, you could deep- countersink a wood screw through the puck for a cheap similar design.
I suspect that even isolating a floor with pucks only served to create a bit of a bass trap in the air pocket between the original floor and the isolated one. My brother installed a floor at his home with ASC rubber isolation mounts made for the purpose of soundproofing, and they are far more easily compressed than a hockey puck.

I have conflicting feelings about having several amps.
For the studio itself, where I do have session players come on occasion, more amps = good.
For my ad work, more amps = occasionally necessary.
For my own work as an artist, however, more amps = time wasted amp-tasting, instead of making a single amp my "voice." There's simply too much temptation to flit from amp to amp (or for that matter, from guitar to guitar) and make it about that choice instead of getting down to business and establishing what I'm about.
For my entire music career spanning the last 22 years, this has been a back-and-forth dilemma.
What I can say, however, is that I've owned some wonderful amps over the years, and that the HX/DA is on par with the very finest. It's a true professional's instrument in every way. I'm very, very happy with it.
I am only familiar with the "H" and "C" amps. I hope I can test those Super Dallas, Blistertone, MDT and HX/DA ones. I can only imagine how good they sound
