IsoAcoustics OREA isolation footers
#1
Hello All,

Am intrigued by the line of isolation “pucks” offered by IsoAcoustics.  In email correspondence with the company I was given this recommendation for support to a stacked pair of Ds

I would suggest 3 of the OREA bronze between the stacked mono-blocks. You can position 2 in the back and 1 at the front in the middle.

I would recommend 3 of the Indigo for underneath the stack.

Price points are, for audiophile gear, happily somewhat sensible.

Anyone tried these out?

Note, the bronze OREA is new to market with availability coming this month.

I was planning on trying the Bronze under my 440 Pro also, but still waiting for my dealer to get them in stock. I don't have mine stacked, so was looking to get 6 Bronze. Will let you know one I get some info from my dealer. And if you try them before I do, please share you thoughts Smile

Isoacoustics are reasonably priced because they’re a pro audio brand, more recently pushing things into the hifi world with the Gaia footers. Hopefully they won’t succumb to introducing elaborately packaged and finished models containing unobtanium as they evolve - the Gaia footers were more expensive than the pro pucks, but they were a different design too.

Great, please post your experiences when you get them in house....was told that on-line supply for the Bronze was coming to the Canadian market at the end of December or early January.

Let's just hope they aren't taking any clues from Ted Denney!  Wink

All,
Just had these delivered. Only the Indigo as the Bronze are to released in January but have to say they are f#.king amazing...definition we had never expected, faster resolution of a strong musical line as in the stop and start of a instrument, better definition within complex musical lines, etc...I have posted here about the clear improvements offered by the AQ Z3 power chords but these little devices far exceed the improvement given by the power chords.

Axel,

As per my opening post, the recommendation from Iso Acoustic, for a stacked pair of D440's, was the Orea Indigo to carry the weight of the pair and the second tier of Bronze between the two.
The Bronze has yet to be introduced but to come on the 7th of January.  I purchased on line from a Canadian group
AudioW3.com
who were prompt and helpful.

Best,
Warren

I ordered my 6 pcs of Bronze that I was recommended by Sean Morrison of Isoacoustics Inc under my 440-Pro CI and am awaiting for these to be delivered.

Installing each of the IsoAcoustics feet under my speakers requires to undo the factory built castors and in-lieu install this plate and then the feet in the center. I wasn't willing to start modifying the underside of my Bowers & Wilkins plinth hence found the Townshend solution a better fit. Plus calls to B&W also certified that they unofficially endorse them.

Unparalleled!  Wondering how quickly my thread was to be displaced by your alternate suggestions!  Enjoy!

Its just an opinion ... so be it !!  Moreover, GAIA vs. Townshend has nothing to do with OREA (does it ?)
