Isopuks are highly effective isolators designed to reduce
structure borne vibration and its deleterious effects on audio signals.
Structure borne vibration affects virtually every piece of audio equipment,
but its effects are most damaging to the tiny signals read and processed by
source components such as CD players and non-isolated turntables.
Vibration enters audio components via the feet & the chassis, reducing clarity,
smearing detail and distorting frequency response. Eliminating this
structural resonance in audio equipment results in instantaneous audible
improvements; increases in soundstaging, improved imaging and (most
importantly) smoother more natural tonal balance.
Isopuks are manufactured using AVIDís uniquely tailored Sorbothane compound
inserted into a machined solid aluminium housing. The shape enhances the
Isopukís dissipation properties helps to further filter high frequency
resonance. The felt base facilitates equipment movement and prevents
Available in two hardness levels, Isopuks offer an optimum loading range,
ensuring performance geared towards the specific weight of the component.
Mass loading should be equal on each Isopuk used; if the weight is
imbalanced within the unit, additional Isopuks may be required under the
heavier side to achieve proper isolation. An example of this would be under
a power amplifier with a large, heavy transformer on one side; extra Isopuks
should be used to help isolate this side.
A simple calculation will determine how many Isopuks are required for any
piece of equipment.
Isopuk 5 optimum loading range; 0.1-2.0 Kg
Isopuk 7 optimum loading range; 5.0-7.0 Kg
