Isolating Your Audio Equipment With Audio Equipment Feet

Addition of isolation feet to heavy equipment can prevent vibrations from getting into the signal chain and diluting its purity, creating an audible difference when listening to a piece of music with or without them. You’ll quickly realize this fact if comparing music tracks recorded with or without feet installed.

Utilizing isolation feet on audio equipment helps reduce vibration, improve sound quality, eliminate resonance, and block transmission of vibration to floors or speaker stands. There are various kinds of feet available; their performance varies according to shape and material: for instance cylindrical isolation feet have large contact surfaces and should be suitable for light speakers while spiked feet offer small contact surfaces and are better suited to heavier equipment.

Isolation feet are constructed of viscoelastic materials designed to absorb vibrations and dampen them without altering the resonant frequency, leading to less distortion and clearer, more dynamic sounds. Furthermore, their flat design minimizes distance between components and shelves and maximizes vibration-proof effect by decreasing contact surface area between components and shelves.

Isolation products can enhance the performance of HiFi components by dampening or dissipating vibration. When placed underneath speakers and components, these isolation products can significantly improve sound clarity while simultaneously stabilizing and supporting equipment cases made of thin aluminium or steel.

Your PC power supplies come in various shapes and sizes to accommodate different components. Some models feature various mounting options to make installation simpler; furthermore they’re easy to keep clean in any environment they are installed in.

Sand can also be an effective choice to isolate HiFi components, due to its vibration-dampening capabilities and heavy HiFi equipment compatibility. Unfortunately, however, this material can be expensive and hard to come by, prompting many people to opt for other isolation materials, such as metal or elastomers instead.

Pneumatic isolation feet provide another efficient and effective means of isolating HiFi components. The device consists of an inner bladder that separates top and bottom plates of damped metal, which can be filled up using a bicycle pump in order to adjust resonance frequencies and noise reduction, along with an adjustable pressure valve and valves for controlling pressure settings.


Material choice plays an integral part in transmitting vibration. Spike feet transmit low frequency vibration to the floor, which may or may not be beneficial depending on its characteristics and environment. Rubber feet on the other hand transmit very minimal vibration to the floor allowing bass frequencies to be reproduced correctly without sounding hollow or overly bloopy – some prefer spikes over rubber because this allows proper reproduction without sounding overly bloopy or hollow. However there are products designed specifically to combat contra-vibrational effects which provide maximum bass reproduction – perfect for speakers or heavy load HiFi valve amps.


Durability is a critical aspect of audio equipment feet. Without sturdy feet, hi-fi racks could suffer damage both physically and aesthetically from their location on the floor beneath. They could also alter your system performance by altering its vibrational resonance frequency. Durable feet can withstand heavy use while also helping prevent the transmission of vibration between surfaces – they may be constructed of different materials with differing damping properties for reduced transmission of mechanical energy that causes triboelectric noise and amplifies microphonics.

There is a wide variety of isolation feet on the market, ranging from cylindrical to cube shapes made of plastic or metal; their sound quality depends on material and shape as well as size, weight and technology used. They are commonly found under speakers, amplifiers and other hi-fi components.

Isolation feet are specially-designed feet used to reduce vibration from hi-fi components and improve audio reproduction. Easy and cost-effective installation make isolation feet an economical and worthwhile alternative to other hi-fi products, with sizes and materials including metal and acrylic glass available in multiple varieties for use stacked together for maximum vibration absorption.

Acoustic isolation feet are essential components for most high-end hi-fi systems, helping reduce vibration and enhance sound quality of components from speakers to turntables. Acoustic isolation feet can particularly benefit valve amplifiers and speakers by significantly improving sound quality.

Isolation feet can help improve the sound quality of any HiFi component, from speakers or amplifiers, to vibration-dampening stands. In addition, these feet help lower mechanical vibration and triboelectric noise that could otherwise compromise sound quality in your audio system. Furthermore, isolation feet reduce resonance frequencies to help keep components stable on stands – all at an affordable price point online.


Isolating audio equipment may cost significant sums, yet can dramatically enhance its performance by reducing vibration and improving sound staging, specialty, and dynamic realism. Furthermore, isolating can also reduce bloopy bass often caused by rubber feet.

Spike feet transfer low frequency vibration energy of speakers directly into your floor, which may or may not be beneficial depending on the environment in which you place it. For added floor protection, cups can also be purchased to place under them if spikes aren’t your thing.

These rubber footers feature clear urethane rings on their bottom to protect hardwood floors against color imprinting, increase friction between footer and floor surface and make loudspeakers feel more grounded. Their installation process is quick and easy: just thread onto existing ball-end footer screws before tightening by hand for a secure fit – plus they’re made from high quality materials to last you years.
