Ukishima 15A – Fully Adjustable Hifi Isolation Feet (set of four)
Solidair Audio, Ukishima 15A, magnetic levitation feet for hi-fi (Box of four 15Kg model) are made from polished brass and stainless steel to accurate tolerances. They are designed to look fabulous and considerably reduce vibration in all hi-fi equipment. These are the adjustable feet, for easier positioning and levelling. They can also be used to compensate for an uneven floor if used under speakers.
These feet are designed for heavier components and can take quite a weight and still provide the best vibration isolation and component damping available. They can also be used under a hifi rack to isolate all the components from the floor.
Place the feet under your CD, DVD, Blu-ray, amp, preamp, turntable, speakers, or hifi rack, you will notice an immediate improvement to the sound quality. Typically, the sound-stage is improved soundstage, harshness removed from high notes and more clarity, detail and solidity, with a fast accurate bass. On AV equipment a clearer crisper picture will be seen as well. The whole listening experience is less tiring on your ears for a more pleasurable audio experience.
A quote from Julius Hyde, designer and maker of the legendary Impulse and Aspara horn speakers: “My transistor amp now sounds like a good valve amp, less harsh, the hardness and brittleness have been taken away.”
Start by placing the feet at the corners and move them to even the load or adjust the preload screws to level the component. The working range of loads are from 2Kg to 15Kg per foot or 8Kg to 60Kg for a set of four feet (1 box), which will cover most heavier or stacked equipment.
Some products are quite unbalanced, usually due to the position of heavy transformers and you may need tto arrange the feet to balance the load.
Make sure the feet are not fully compressed under load, or they will not be doing their job. (You may want to remove the standard rubber feet or solid spikes from your hi-fi separates for cleaner lines and more freedom with your setup.)
Tall units with a small footprint, like floor standing speakers, may be too unstable for use with this kind of foot for support. You may need a platform to stand them on instaed for better stabilty.
Used properly, these feet will give you many years of reliable service and improved enjoyment of your beloved hi-fi equipment. For high end audio this would probably be the most cost effective upgrade you can make. I would not want to be without them, if you don’t agree.
