ISOACOUSTICS OREA ISOLATORS NOW AVAILABLE
The Beach Boys went on and on about Good Vibrations, but audiophiles didn’t jump aboard that particular wagon.
Ask them, and as a global collective, they’ll all opine that vibrations and assorted resonances are the bane of their hobby.
Vibrations set up by speakers, resonances coming from shonky floorboards and the sound of some hoon’s crappy car coming from the street outside your listening room, are affecting your sound quality.
IsoAcoustics, an international brand, is a vibration and resonance buster par excellence. It's an outfit that knows how to reduce these sonic gremlins from your listening experience.
Talking to Geoff Matthews, Managing Director of Convoy International which distributes IsoAcoustics in New Zealand, he agreed that unwanted vibrations and resonances could degrade the sound of all audio and audio video systems.
Geoff is still a keen audiophile. He’s experienced what these unwanted external sonic degraders could do to your sight and sound gear.
Most audio buffs know about equipment isolation. But a lot of people don’t realise a vibrating DVD player or music server performs a lot better if it has isolation treatment.
Matthews recently used a sample set of the new OREA series acoustic isolators at home. He’s tried them under turntables, SACD players, DACs, his Blu-ray player, preamps and power amps.
Hand on heart, he loves them.
The Orea range available now is specifically designed for audio and video components.
Matthews recommends the OREA Indigo isolation puck as a universal isolator that can support 7.2 kgs per puck. For heavier components, he says the Orea Bordeaux that can support 14.5 kgs per puck is a no-brainer.
In even better news for owners of gear with three supporting feet rather than four, the OREA range is available separately so you can buy one at a time if you so desire.
The OREA range’s pricing is sane, very sane. Each OREA Indigo puck costs just NZ $109 RRP, while the OREA Bordeaux is NZ $139 RRP. In audio gear terms, this is beer or coffee money.
