    Default FS: Carbon Fibre / End Grain Balsa Wood replacement feet

    After looking around for some replacement feet for my Caiman SEG / Allo Digione Player / Longdog Audio PSU, I decided to make my own based on some well known replacement feet that I have used in the past with great effect. I have used a Carbon Fibre ring rather than 3x CF rods.

    They really have proved to be the icing on the cake for my system, so thought I'd use up the rest of the materials and offer them for sale here and PFM.

    Hopefully the price of 15.00 for a set of 3 including UK postage is a fair offer, I have 11 sets of 3 in total. If anyone puchases a set and is not 100% satisfied, I'll be happy to refund less the return postage.

    They are 18mm high overall and 19mm diameter. I've not tested the weight loading, but would hazard a guess of up to 10kg per set would be safe.

    Hi,
    A quick question. excuse my ignorance but what's the benefits, sonically I mean?
    Also, I'm looking at an amp to purchase, just a cheapie on line, that doesn't have feet fitted at all. Can I just rest this unit on these feet and have done with it, or would that not work? No isolation, or too much vibration etc...

    Thanks for helping out an audio technically bereft fella!

    Just sit your amp on top or use a tiny amount of Blutac to hold them in place.

    Try some and see what you think, if you don't think they improve the sound send them back to me for a refund

    Cheers,

    Bill

    I'm going to try a different tact here as I guess people are nervous of buying an unknown item.

    If anyone would like to try them, I'll pay 2 into your PP account and then send you 3x isolators free of charge. If you want to keep them, pay me 15 plus the 2 into my account. If you don't like them, use the 2 to post them back

    No affiliation, but these are similar to Something Solid Dissipating Feet which are well thought of.

    In fact from Lenco Heaven
    "As a bit of an update I went for soft and squidgy first with a set of Vibrapods pinched from under my cdp, didn't like these to much, made the bass a bit soft and poorly defined. Next up a set of Something Solid Dissipating Feet, these were much, much better I think I will stick with these for now."

    They are my take on the Dissipating feet - didn't want to copy them
