IsoAcoustics Orea Indigo component isolators (pictured above left), and Orea Bordeaux isolators (pictured above right), which are manufactured in Canada, are now available in Australia from Convoy International.
‘The new Orea series provides extraordinary levels of isolation for high-fidelity audio components and turntables,’ says Geoff Matthews, of Convoy. ‘The patented IsoAcoustics component isolator design provides the highest level of vibration isolation and energy management when used for high-fidelity audio components. The removal of parasitic vibrations creates a high level of sound clarity and openness when used.’
IsoAcoustics told Australian Hi-Fi Magazine that its Orea range of isolators was specifically designed for use with components—amplifiers, DACs, turntables, and CD players—while its Gaia range of isolators (pictured below) was solely intended for use with loudspeakers.
The number of Orea component isolators you need to isolate any individual component depends on the weight of the component that’s being isolated and the number of feet on that component (usually four, but sometimes three). Each IsoAcoustics Orea Indigo isolation puck has a maximum capacity of 7.2kg, while each IsoAcoustics Orea Bordeaux puck has a maximum capacity of 14.5kg, so you simply divide the weight of the component by the number of legs. If your answer is below 7.2kg once divided, you’d use the Orea Indigo isolators. Anything higher, and you’d use the Orea Bordeaux isolators.
Available now, the IsoAcoustics Orea Indigo isolators sell for $99 each (RRP) and the IsoAcoustics Orea Bordeaux isolators for $129 each (RRP).
