GAIA I isolators provide improved sound clarity and openness for floor standing speakers and subwoofers weighing 220 lbs (100KG) or less.
GAIA I isolators are finished with a machined stainless steel housing with an elegant dark chrome finish. Incorporating IsoAcoustics patented design principles, the GAIA I provides a high degree of isolation while resisting lateral movement and oscillations to maintain alignment with the listening position. Internal reflections from the hard-supporting surface are attenuated resulting in greater sound clarity and openness. The GAIA I will reveal clarity and openness from your speakers like you’ve never heard.
The sound stage blossoms to open up a three-dimensional image of natural, spatial sound.
*Alternative thread sizes available on request from IsoAcoustics Distributors
Optimal results are achieved by installing the GAIA isolators with the logo facing the listening position, or rotated 180 degrees, to align the isolators with the speaker’s motive forces. Lift and place the speakers into position as the GAIA lower isolators will adhere to the supporting surface.
The GAIA’s are threaded into the base of the speaker or subwoofer to replace the existing spikes or feet. Threading the GAIA’s into the base of the speaker creates a strong connection with the speaker. With the top of the GAIA housing connected with the speaker and the bottom of the GAIA connected to the supporting surface, all of the energy is then managed by the GAIA’s internal isolator.
The GAIA I includes thread adaptors for sizes M8-1.25, M12-1.25 and ¼”-20. Alternative thread size adaptors are available upon request through IsoAcoustics distributors.
GAIA isolators come with thread adaptors for the 3 most common thread sizes which fit the majority of speakers. Alternative thread sizes are available upon request through IsoAcoustics distributors.
GAIA isolators are made from a high quality stainless steel construction, incorporating the IsoAcoustics design philosophy that combines precision and a passion to deliver extraordinary acoustic results.

“…the improvement in low-level detail, resolution, image focus, clarity, bass attack, and decay, and transparency were … They were huge!”
“...instruments and voices were more precisely defined on the soundstage, which itself was wider and higher. A Remarkable Product.”
“…greater clarity, better-controlled bass and a broader, deeper soundstage that’s easier to hear into. There are zero audible downsides."
“They are superior to all other isolation products for speakers out there…”
“These GAIAs are like putting premium sports tyres on a Porsche 911, simple as that. You’d do that if you bought a 911, wouldn’t you?”
"I sat there immersed in the music, could not believe how could a system this good; could sound so much better in a matter of minutes. Ladies and Gentlemen, the IsoAcoustics GAIA Isolators are a remarkable product.”
“If you want to hear what your loudspeakers really sound like, put them on a set of these support feet. It’s like your loudspeakers just got a significant upgrade!”
“With every track, I consistently heard tighter bass and lower midrange, with greater focus and depth.”
“…introducing noteworthy focus and forcing an uptick in soundstage clarity. Simply Superb!”
Designed to maintain stable support on carpet, the optional Carpet Spikes work with the GAIA I isolators to provide improved performance on thicker pile carpet and carpet with under pads.
The B&W plate adapts the GAIA I to the Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus and Diamond series speakers. The ball-casters are removed and replaced with the B&W plate which provides a threaded hole for the appropriate stud to screw into.
The B&W D3 plate adaptor replaces the wheels on B&W D3 speakers and provides a threaded hole for the appropriate GAIA stud to screw into.
The M12 Vanity Cap is a decorative cap that installs on top of the base of a speaker, attaching to M12 threads from the GAIA speaker isolators. The M12 Vanity Cap is commonly used with the Focal Sopra N1 & Sopra N2 Floor Standing Speakers.
