10/2014- NOW BACK IN STOCK!! FINALLY

Yes finally I have obtained a new/suitable supplier for the wood blocks!!


The footers are improved! We have changed the disc inserted in the block to a stiffer material and it has made a nice improvement! Try a set and see! Also we offer two versions now based on tests and customer feedback:

1) The original - most compliant with Deflex bottom sheet best for digital gear and/or taming a system that is edgy or a little harsh on the top end and perhaps with sibilance.

2) Option 2 has all the same components as the original EXCEPT instead of a very compliant Deflex bottom sheet it uses a 1.6MM Herbies Grungebuster sheet. This is recommended for warmer systems where the HF is where you want it as well as turntables and amplifiers and other analog gear

"Aural Support" - THE  COMPONENT FOOTER


59.95 per set of four













DIMENSIONS =  2.25" L  X 2.0" W  X 2.4" H (at the top of the ball)

We do not glue the bottom material (Deflex or Herbies Grungebuster) to the footer

This is so the user can change the bottom pad if desired


We have been working on this a long time and finally came up with something that works for all sources and amplifiers. This project turned out to be much more difficult and time consuming than I thought it would be. It has four levels of damping: a hard then soft, and a second hard then soft configuration. We found the marriage of a hard then soft material really does the job. So then we did it twice!


 $59.95 for a set of four. Sold in sets of four! For those that prefer three footers 45.95. Shipping is  via USPS and Priority mail is recommended for time and tracking. These will require the medium size box. See www.usps.gov for rates, I send them from 22601 zip. Paypal users add 3%.

WHY DID WE DESIGN IT LIKE THIS?

We found things worked much better when set on a ball, especially those things like TT's and CDP's spinning a disc, compared to other options like a point or flat surface. Movement/Energy seems to dissipate in a more favorable manner for sound reproduction.

As stated, the footers feature four levels of damping starting with a ball on top, the Herbies Lamplack ball(hard) from Herbies Audio Lab, then it rests on a cylinder* made from a synthetic material(soft) which sits in a one inch diameter hole in a an oak block (hard) finished with UV resistant coating which then sits on a Deflex pad (soft) a little over 2" X 2" , the size of the block or for less compliance a Herbies Grungebuster 1.6MM sheet


I've tested these a long time and really like them better than many fine products I've tried. As always these units come with our 30 day satisfaction guarantee! Don't like them? Send them back for a refund!


                     
                *************************** Update 10/22/10 ******************************

 We've made an improvement in the footer. Inside the block is a disc on  which the ball sits. I changed the material to a slightly harder material (80 vs 40 on the durometer) which has improved dynamics, HF response and image size/quality a little more.

If you bought footers previously we will happily send you a new set of these discs at no charge. Just send us an email! How's that for service?
