Get your super-duper vibration-damping bass-, treble-, and mid-improving snake-oil doped premium grade sorbothane for a paltry $19.95!

Of course, if you buy it through the industrial optics division, it's $50 for the same product...

Sorbothane?!

Who the heck'd be silly enough to tweak with Sorbothane? Silly audiophiles.

In that pic, is the sorbothane translucent blue, or is it just under the feet?

The blue things are the Sorbothane feet. They're SorboGel, which is supposed to be a special foamed Sorbothane or something like that.

Those little pads under the front feet were used to level the unit (my desk isn't perfectly level -- it leans forward a bit). With those pads, the 333 is perfectly level both ways.

Looking at the packaging for the Audioquest Big Feet now...

Wow, I didn't notice this before: Each Big Foot is made up of two layers. The top layer (which is the flat part) is made up of a thickness of foamed Sorbothane. Most of the bottom part is made of solid Sorbothane.

OK guys that are interested in Sorbothane sheeting.

Check this out www.NoiseKiller.com

They sell a self contained can called NoiseKiller Blue.


It acts such as to change vibrations into low-grade heat ie: actaully getting rid of the problematic energy into a different form.

I am getting some og this stuff for inside my computer, to deaden the damn thing down, but it would work very well inside hi-fi separtes cases.

You just spray it on, like paint, its water solubale so you can wipe it off with a dmp cloth before it dries, but its a little herader once it dries. Note that it strangley doesnt have the rubbery feel most would expect - its like paint. Read the blurd @ the link i gave.

I am sure this stuff would cut out the vivrations that cause sound degradation. However, seeing as we're al headphone listeners here, the main problem of loudspeaker acoustic feedback to the very electronics that supply their signal is greatly reduced. Therefore what vibration are we drying to deaden with all that sorbothane?

So you're stuffing something into your computer.... that produces heat ???

Hmm, I don't know about this. You might end up buying a bigger fan to prevent your computer from dying, which produces more
noise/vibrations, so you have to put more of that stuff in.....

Heh, my big worry would be if the stuff is conductive!

Or more importantly, how much were Jude's sorbothane feet?

Knowing him, I'd say around, oh, $30 for four.
