‘The Isonoe Audio Isolation System is an anti-vibration product that prevents feedback in turntables, improves the sound of CD players and is an industry standard in many of the worlds most respected nightclubs.’
Anyone who has an interest in Technics 1200/1210 turntables be they a HiFi enthusiast or a DJ will have heard about the improvements to sound quality these replacement feet can bring to a Technics turntable.
The Isonoe Isolation System is sold in packs of 4 isolators.
The Isolation Feet are equally effective at blocking the ingress of vibration from the mechanical assemblies of both turntables and CD players; the more isolation from vibration afforded to the optical tracking mechanism within a CD player, the less work needs to be performed by the error-correction software, preserving detail and spatial integrity.
Accompanying Sorbothane Boots are also available to seat the bearings and maximise isolation (Sorbothane is a renowned polymer within the medical, aerospace and hi-fi industries, originally designed to mimic the vibration absorbing properties of human flesh).
Unlike the vast majority of isolation devices targeted at the hi-fi sector, the Isonoe Isolation System has been proven in the most demanding professional installations and as such, has received critical acclaim within the hi-fi sector from users and reviewers alike. As well as receiving critical acclaim, respected hi-fi manufacturers have decided to offer the Isolation Feet as an OEM option on their high-end equipment, valve amplifiers being one example. The forthcoming isolation platform should open up appeal for Hi-Fi users even further.
DJ EQUIPMENT APPLICATIONS:
Rather than hinder trick-DJs by enabling a “jelly wobble” effect to exist when they make adjustments, as with more primitive isolation systems, the Isonoe Isolation System acts as a 2-way shock absorber which cushions forces induced into the platter / plinth by the DJ’s hands, without springing back abruptly.
Excessive lateral movement by isolation systems employing air, springs or suchlike, creates uneven wear on both the stylus and more importantly, the sides of the vinyl groove. If the plinth / platter are subject to sufficient force, the Isonoe system will return to the horizontal state gradually and smoothly in a gentle, “viscous” manner (compression of the visco-elastic polymer coupling will only occur in incidences of extreme physical abuse).
“Wow” constitutes one of the most insidious forms of colouration, even in its most subtle form; pendulum-like lateral movement by any turntable will result in a disconcerting increase in wow.
A typical DD turntable weighs 12kg, therefore the bearings in the base will not slide around if lateral forces are exerted (e.g: “back cueing”) upon the supported device.
Isonoe feet are designed to work with glass surfaces but you can buy Isonoe glass discs so you can use them with other types of materials that HiFi equipment tables shelves might be made from.
