    Heck yeah they are! I ordered an extra set at that price, I know they aren't one piece solid machined brass super discs, but, they do what they are supposed to do. Which for me is protecting my wood floors.

    mine point right into the floor like eagle's talons..actually, my floor has 18" tile squares..so it's too uneven to use the saucers. the points work well and amazingly don't leave any marks when i move the spkrs
