Symposium Acoustics's Point Pods
Feet by Symposium Acoustics
Point Pods are an affordable solution for treating components with an effective, performance-improving vibration control device.
The Point Pod is a very slim, "mini" Symposium platform- only 2" by 3" small (5 x 7.6 cm), and only 1/3" (0.84 cm) thick. Their tops and bottoms are layers of hand finished, polished stainless steel, and their interior consists of 3 constrained layers, including a 3/16" (0.5 cm) thick foam center section.
Point Pods are ideal for use with small active components, such as mini-digital processors and power supplies, or with loudspeakers. They are also ideal for use with an inverted Rollerblock setup, as their stainless steel tops are hard enough for direct contact with the Rollerblock ball. Point Pods are most effective when used in direct contact with the chassis of components. In this primary application, they are effective either beneath or on top of the component, or both. They are also excellent for use when larger or taller isolation devices aren't appropriate or practical, as in equipment racks with limited vertical space. They are ideal for use on wood floors to protect spikes and cones from damaging surfaces, and can be used together with Symposium Large Couplers and Rollerblocks to improve overall sonic results by providing a more neutral support surface. Point Pods are very effective with loudspeakers; in this application, they improve sonics by damping cabinet wall vibrations which cause loudspeaker driver intermodulation distortion.
