Dark Star isolation feet variants
For some application it is necessary to locate the feet with a screw. This it useful if you don’t want the feet to move relative to the component they are supporting. For speakers this can be particularly useful as speakers are not always easy to move around, so adjusting their angle or position in the listening space is an easier operation. This can be achieved with a few modifications to the The Dark Star isolation feet. For a straight M6 or M8 thread on the 50mm foot, this can be done at no extra cost to the standard feet. They can be used on our platforms for example, instead of the brass magnetic levitation feet for the same cost. For more unusual modifications and sizes there would be an extra charge, so please contact us if you require this option.
The overall diameter of the Dark Star feet is 52mm (2 inches) and height around 30mm (1.2 inches). They weigh around 55 grams (2oz). Their load capacity has been tested up to 50Kg (110lb) for a single foot, but they look like they could take more. The main body is made from a carbon fibre tube which holds an ebony foot on a braided nylon web. They are very strong and do look rather splendid. They can be used as they are on a hard flat surface, or with a Landing Pad (coaster) on a soft surface like carpet. The Landing Pad adds 3mm (1/8 inch) to the height and they are sold separately as they are not always needed.
We can make the feet in different diameters too, we recently made two sets with 63mm diameter for our own reference system. These are shown in the images on this page. The properties of the feet are the same and the carry a similar weight, but sometimes the application demands and aesthetic change, we just needed the feet to be larger. They are proportionally identical to the 50mm feet, so look the same when they are not next to each other. We think the sound is just stunning with these feet, so natural, full of air. Our best yet.
The Dark Star feet and other String Theory HiFi isolation feet have less movement in them than our magnetic range, so lend themselves well to speaker isolation. We also have on a new carbon fibre suspension bridge and other types of suspension bridge using these feet.
