Townshend Audio Seismic Isolation Pods, Set of 4, Ex Dem
If your audio equipment is not adequately isolated from external vibrations, it will not be working to the standard that its designers intended. Vibration comes from a variety of sources and you can read what Max Townshend says about the issue here – The Importance of Vibration Isolation
The Seismic Isolation Pods offer a straightforward and sensibly priced way of isolating individual pieces of equipment. Positioned under any piece of equipment, four Seismic Isolation Pods will dramatically improve the sound by breaking the acoustic connection between the audio system and structural vibrations in the room.
The Seismic Isolation Pod is a Seismic Load Cell™ with a circular foot attached to the lower end cap for stability. The length may be adjusted by turning the top end cap, which allows easy levelling of audio equipment placed on a set of four Pods. There is a soft felt protective piece on the top and bottom faces of the end caps to allow for easy positioning and to prevent scratching.
The singular Seismic Isolation Pod is available with seven different weight capacities, ranging progressively from 1kg up to 64kg. Depending on the weight of the device they can be used in sets of four, eight or more to isolate any piece of equipment, of any weight from any vibration.
For asymmetric components such as a valve (tube) amplifier with the transformers at the rear, different load capability Seismic Load Cells™ can be used to balance the load.
