Put your audio and video gear on cloud nine with the Cloud 10 Vibration Control Platform from Gingko Audio.
Cloud 10 is a tunable vibration control system offering complete flexibility in getting the most out of your audio system. Cloud 10 consists of an acrylic isolation platform and rubber support balls. Its elegant design belies its functional effectiveness. Cloud 10 works well because of the correct choice of material coupled with a flexible design that lets you experiment with different balls in different positions for the best overall performance.
How Cloud 10 Works
Acrylic does an excellent job in dissipating any vibrating energy it receives because of its complex, dense, and irregular molecular structure. In addition to the acrylic platform, Cloud 10 also uses rubber balls to further isolate the equipment from vibration. The rubber balls serve two critical functions. They provide four degrees of freedom in the movement of the top platform relative to the bottom base. The top platform sitting on the rubber balls can freely move up and down, front to back, side to side, and rotationally without causing undulating, repeating motion that continues long after the original vibration.
The rubber balls are also used to balance the uneven load of some equipment such as amplifiers or turntables. By placing the rubber balls in the different positions in the base, you can level the equipment to even the load.
Each of the Cloud 10 balls is specially designed to optimally support a 10 lb load, and has a maximum capacity of 20 lbs. Therefore, three balls work best under a 30 lb load. Use additional balls if your equipment weighs more.
