Daedalus Audio Isolation devices
« on: 30 Jul 2015, 05:18 am »
We've been working on some designs for isolation under equipment and speakers, these are the new isolation footers for amplifiers etc.
We combined dissimilar materials, thick aluminum, cherry, brass and steel bearings with excellent results. They work!  :thumb:
Now we need a name for them and I know how talented everyone here is in that area. :D
Ideas please?

Thanks

the one with the black on top is upside down... they can have felt on the bottom.

Sandalia.  The Greek word for sandals which the ancient Greeks wore on their feet.

Thanks Jason!  These will definitely ship with a trial period for return, I wouldn't want anyone to get them and feel they don't work in their system or are not worthwhile etc.

We are still refining the build process etc to try to bring the costs down, at this time it looks like they will be in the $100-$120 ea range with a lower direct sale price.

I was surprised at just how much they improved the sound, and am looking forward to the next show with them!

As for the "name", maybe we should just keep it simple and skip the Greek mythology this time?  ie: Daedalus Audio Resonance Control?

How about Cherry Isolators or Iso Cherries.

Do we get a free set if you use our suggestion?

Sandalia.  The Greek word for sandals which the ancient Greeks wore on their feet.
In the portuguese language Sandalia are 1 sandal, a half pair.
Sandalias are 2, a pair.

That rack looks just like mine.  :D

What are the dimensions of the cable organizer, especially the bottom shelf?

Thanks Lou

correct :D

this is is about 20"x20"  sized for a Furman SPR-20i

the bars are in slots so they can be positioned perfectly to the rack.  I'll try to get pictures from the show with the whole setup in use.

the "blue one" is an isolator in it's blue cloth bag.

thanks,
lou

The Daedalus Isolation Devices (DID) work better than any isolation devices I have used or heard. I was present in the main Daedalus/ModWright/WyWires room (Iris) during several demos listening with and without the DID. You could hear the improvement with the first few notes and it was not subtle. Made me a believer--big time.

I was there too, and I normally don't buy into stuff like isolation woo products.  But damn if it didn't work and work very well.  Darn it, I thought I was done spending money on my system!  :lol:
