A true masterpiece of isolation technology
Positioned under any piece of equipment, Seismic Isolation Pods will dramatically improve the sound by breaking the acoustic connection between the audio system and structural vibrations in the room.
The Seismic Isolation Pod is a Seismic Load Cell™ with a circular foot attached to the lower end cap for stability. The length may be adjusted by turning the top end cap, which allows easy levelling of audio equipment placed on a set of four Pods. There is a soft felt protective piece on the top and bottom faces of the end caps to allow for easy positioning and to prevent scratching.
A singular Seismic Pod is available with seven different weight range capacities, varying progressively from less than 1 up to 50 kg. Virtually any weight of equipment can be isolated.
For asymmetric components such as a valve (tube) amplifier with the transformers at the rear, different load capability Seismic Load Cells™ can be used to balance the load.The maximum load when using four type “F” Pods is 200 kg (440 lb). For loads greater than this, simply add more Seismic Pods.
Each Seismic Pod is screw adjustable in height to allow for out of balance loads where the centre of gravity of the component is not near its geometrical centre. If the degree of out of balance is too large, then it is suggested to use additional Seismic Pods as necessary, to balance the load.
It is suggested, for reasons of ease of set-up and loads that are not equally distributed, that consumers always select the stronger Load Cell where two values overlap in the graph below.

“… Further intense listening helped me appreciate these devices’ sonic benefits, which provided improved clarity and inner resolution across the entire musical spectrum. Any concern that dynamics might be negatively impacted quickly went away, and as I continued to listen with the Isolation Pods in place – I could further appreciate how even the elimination of subtle vibrations from my equipment was now enhanced to another level.”

“I think that they are amazing. They are priced right, and perform at many times their cost! A keeper! My highest BUY recommendation.”

“More resulution, the spacial projection got further more improved and the bass got more definition“
Single Seismic Pod type/load capacity
For example, when using four (4) type “C” Pods, the maximum supported weight should be equal or less than 53 kg
