All we need to know is the weight and how many legs your Rack/Stand/Cabinet has, whether the legs are Flat or Spiked, and the overall weight of all the equipment, please.
Solutions for equipment with either more or less than 4 support/legs are available please do not hesitate to contact us with your requirements, thank you.
TOWNSHEND SEISMIC ISOLATION CORNERS
Seismic Corners provide vibration isolation for almost any rack, stand and platforms. Each Seismic Corner is a small platform suspended from two Seismic Load cells on which the equipment legs or spikes are placed.
Designed to float your existing equipment rack in an unobtrusive manner, the Seismic Corners slip discreetly under the bottom corners of your support furniture and bring you all the benefits of Seismic Isolation without major upheaval.
Four Corners units are able to hold equipment weighing up to 400kg.
The Seismic Corners are available with five different weight range capacities, varying progressively from less than 20kg up to 400kg. Virtually any weight of equipment can be isolated.
We suggest, for reasons of ease of set-up and loads that are not equally distributed, that consumers always select the stronger Load Cell where to values overlap in the graph.
For example, when using a set of (4) Seismic Corners with (8) type "D" Load Cells, the maximum supported weight should be equal to or less than 170.4kg.
Produce a wider and deeper sound stage.
Enhance clarity throughout the whole frequency range.
Improve bass definition.
Eliminate structure-borne feedback between the speaker and vibration sensitive equipment.
Allow for neighbour friendly high-level listening.
Eliminate irritating boom caused by coupling through the floor to adjacent rooms.
Townshend Audio Seismic isolation is the best audiophile upgrade available, All loudspeakers and audio equipment will benefit and perform to its maximum.
Please buy with complete confidence from Townshend Audio thank you!
The Importance of Vibration Isolation
Vibrations affect the reproduction of sound through hi-fi systems. Although many of these are small and may go largely unnoticed, vibrations have a negative impact on the quality of sound in virtually all hi-fi components.
Turntables are highly sensitive to vibration, which raises the noise floor, degrading the sound not to mention stylus jump due to footfall.
With silver-disc players, vibration affects the laser mechanism and the crystal oscillators introducing severe sound-degrading jitter.
With tube or valve amplifiers vibration rattles the microphonic electrodes, especially the grids.
Transistor amplifiers have microphonic components, including capacitors and connecting wires which move relative to one and another generating rogue voltages. All of these mechanisms will degrade the delicate audio signal.
Computers, streamers and DACs are highly susceptible to mechanical noise as they all contain vibration sensitive crystal oscillators.
Rigidly spike or cone mounted speakers transmit energy into the floor radiating vibration throughout the room and ultimately, through your rack and into your equipment. This seriously degrades performance as described above. Spike and cone mounted speakers cause the whole room structure to vibrate, often resulting in an unrealistic boomy bass whilst masking subtle detail. Further, this unwanted structural vibration can seriously irritate your neighbours.
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 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 secret is to fully float your whole Hi-Fi System independently from the speakers and the floor. Townshend have devised a complete solution that to allow this to be done in an optimum way.
Seismic Load Cell™
The key component is the Townshend Seismic Load Cell™. The Seismic Load Cell™ consists of a high quality alloy steel compression spring surrounded by a flexible synthetic rubber jacket with two endplates. Screw threads in each plate facilitate height adjustment and provide attachment points. A movement-sensitive, air-resistance damper rapidly dissipates low frequency oscillation caused by disturbing the suspended equipment. Seismic Load Cells™ are very ‘soft’ and allow free movement in all three dimensions; up/down, left/right and back/forth. This unique solution blocks all deleterious vibration from 3Hz upwards and from all directions. As the frequency increases, the isolation gets progressively greater, ensuring that virtually no vibration can pass from and to the suspended equipment. As each hi-fi component is isolated, the sound progressively improves.
