Solidair Audio Ukishima 4 – Hifi Isolation (single foot)
The Ukishima 4 single Solidair Audio isolation foot, to allow flexibility in your setup. Usually we sell sets of four feet because one foot in each corner works on most HiFi components. At least three feet are needed for stability, but they don’t need to be the same power of foot. Sometimes HiFi units are heavy on one side, therefore a mix and match of 4Kg, 6Kg or 10Kg feet may be useful. After all, there is no such thing as ordinary HiFi. Some people prefer to use three feet, but our feet do not work like spikes, so fewer isn’t better (except for your cash flow). They use the same body as the 4 and 10, so mix well with them visually. They all have the same high performance to reduce noise in the signal. The Ukishima 4 single foot listing is so that you can order a specific number or make up a mixed set. They take the standard adjusters that we offer too, in case they are needed.
Ukishima 4 single foot to go with the original Solidair Audio Hifi isolation feet. Designed to bring out the best in your HiFi components, they are made from polished brass and stainless steel to accurate tolerances. They are designed to look fabulous and considerably reduce vibration in your hifi components. Place the feet under your CD, DVD, Blu-ray, amp, preamp, turntable or speakers. You will notice an immediate improvement to the sound quality. Typically, improved sound stage, more clarity, detail and solidity. Harshness is removed from high notes, which allows listening for extended periods, without fatigue. On AV equipment you will get a clearer crisper picture as well.
To position the Ukishima 4 feet, start at the corners and move them to even the load. The working range of loads are from 0.1Kg to 4Kg per foot or 0.4Kg to 16Kg for a set of four feet. This will cover most lighter weight equipment. (The Ukishima 6, 10 and 15 feet are designed for heavier applications.) The feet are typically about 36mm in height and 31mm in diameter (wide) when in use under load. Some products are quite unbalanced, usually due to the position of heavy transformers. They may need an extra foot on one side, or two feet on one side and just one on the other. Arrange them to suit your aesthetic judgement. 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 hifi separates for cleaner lines and more freedom with your setup. These are the non-adjustable feet, though you can buy the adjusters to screw into them if you need to. The adjusters give you more freedom in the placing of the feet.
