Vibrapod Vibration-Control Feet
One of Music Direct's All-Time Best Selling Budget Tweaks
Vibrapods are the most affordable vibration foot to come along in many moons. These very effective dampers have been highly recommended by The Absolute Sound and Stereophile, among other publications. What appears to be a simple rubber foot is actually a very sophisticated design specifically engineered to efficiently dissipate vibrational energy. Vibrapods act like mini shock-absorbers, isolating components from acoustic and mechanical motion in both the horizontal and vertical planes. Use Vibrapods under any component for a huge jump in focus, much better dynamic range and a smoother, richer overall tonal balance.
Vibrapods have a broad, wide base which offers excellent stability. The components rest on a small raised dome which depending on the selected model has a different thickness and weight handling characteristic. For instance, a Model 1 Vibrapod has a very soft and supple dome whereas a Model 5 Vibrapod is very hard and non-compliant. These differing characteristics allow Vibrapods to be used under a broad range of gear, simply select the model with the appropriate weight rating for your gear. Mixing and matching of the various models is encouraged as some components have more weight on one side than the other. For best results, using more Vibrapods of a lower weight rating will sound better than using fewer of a higher rating; this is especially true of speakers and source components.
Vibrapods are available in 5 models based on weight capacity, supporting anywhere from 2 to 25 lbs. each. From lightweight electronics to heavy speakers, Vibrapods improve dynamics, imaging and soundstaging. Vibrapods are our Best-Selling Budget Tweak!
