True Point (UK) Ltd's Adjustable
Feet are suitable for all Hi-Fi equipment particularly Turntables, CD players
and Isolation Platforms.
The purpose of
using isolation spikes is to decouple acoustic feedback from your speakers or
sub-woofer and other sources of extraneous vibration.
They are installed to
separate your turntable deck, CD player, amplifier or other audio components
from vibration. Therefore, the tones will be more focused and tighter.
The feet are spiked and fitted with Sorbothane pads which
further help isolate your Hi-Fi equipment from unwanted vibration.
Our specially designed and precision made Adjustable Isolation Feet will give a
much better performance to your Hi-Fi components.
The overall height of the assembled foot is 55mm, adjustable to 60mm high.
