RE: Isolatton Products - what exists?

Hi Ellis, here are some ideas, though some are quite expensive:

Valhalla Technology: http://www.kronosav.com/accessories/isolation.html

I agree 100% with this. They just can't refrain from doing so.

Thanks for that - but again not needed.

I dont need advice on whether i need isolation products or not - thanks anyway.  You obviously didnt read the earlier posts.

I am after company names that sell them - so far nothing of any help from anyone

I find these quite good:

Probably the same reason WE GET PEOPLE typing ODD THINGS in CAPS for NO REASON and not actually helping the op this making their own post exceptionally ironic.... don'tcha think Smile

 

If somebody came on here and said they were looking for good spearker cables to pair their say linn speakers up to an 80's amstrad amp, do you not think that it might be prudent to advise the person that maybe their amp is not up to the job?  Why do threads have to be dictated to?  Is there an written law somewhere that we are not privvy to?  Given he's asked on a forum and not used google which would have given him a plethora of information then one has to expect that the results and answers will not be under one's control.

 

What Andyjm has said is correct about to check to see if something needs isolation, but if ellisdj wants to ignore that advice it's up to him, but if that's the case, then more fool him quite frankly as I can't see how isolating a pc (espcially one modded for next to none if not no moving parts, even if it does contain a world of foo) will help at all.  I mean otherwise people wouldn't be able to use mp3 players whilst jogging now would they? Plus all of the studios I've worked in never felt the need to use isolation products on the computers, they're usually either rack mounted or on a shelf.

Thats not true either, far from it in fact - this thread is not intended for debate on the subject I am just interested in knowing what products exist on the market I dont already know of


Heres some light reading on the subject

Yup I did have good success placing a set of Nordost Quasar Points under my power distributor and it certainly doesn't have moving parts.

In making the above statement, I'm sure the usual accusations from the usual suspects will come, but they'll just be water off a duck's back.

However if the OP wants to spend money then who are we to stop him.

Thanks for the sensible suggestions - ordered the ion hair dryer and am hoping it will help with my hair loss therapy.

 

I have reposted the above to try and bring some sense back to the thread.  The snake oil brigade do really get on my mits - why bother posting stick to threads you are more interested in, that you can bring positive messages to.

RE: Isolatton Products - what exists?

I Googled "hifi isolation products".  The results were a mix of links to  places selling the same and would presumably give a better indication of what is on the market.
