I have always been skeptical of many audio tweaks and if they are really worth the money? Yet as we keep pushing the envelope to make recorded music sound 'real', I see the need to look at every aspect of the signal chain. This is the kind of design philosophy that has me constantly improving the speakers... investigating ALL the details that go into the system.
Resonance control is crucial in the design of great speaker systems, and now we have applied that knowledge to isolation devices (footers) for components and speakers. The results of coupling resonance dissipation with vibration control have far exceeded my expectations... These REALLY work!
"The Daedalus Isolation Devices (DiDs) offers a smart and stylish, well-engineered vibration isolation solution to all products. I found their effect especially effective with tube products. The dissipation of vibration through rotational energy as well as multi-material-mechanical interfaces including wood, brass, aluminum and steel bearings, allow for exceptional dissipation of vibration energy, rather than its reflection or transmission to other parts of the system. The sonic result is a significant increase in spaciousness, depth, resolution and low-level detail, bringing you closer to the actual sound of live music. Highly recommended!"

"I’m impressed. Your DiD’s are imparting a clarity, transparency, and liquidity, that is luscious, my friend.
No major review is required here. These are the real thing! And very easy to use."

Dealer inquiries welcome.
The DiD devices utilize dissimilar materials to dissipate resonance and are coupled with bearings to also isolate the electronic component from vibration. Precision made of highly polished billet Aluminum, solid Cherry and Brass with steel bearings.
Our DiD-SPK are designed for speakers, larger and with no bearings these help define the lower frequency range and improve the soundstage.
We now make Stainless Steel spikes with Brass lock nuts for speakers. These are massive and the density and differing materials provide a solid foundation with improved clarity.
