Iso-Tips: Are My Hi-Fi Speakers GAIA Compatible?

For those of you who haven’t been introduced – GAIA is our range of threaded decoupling isolators designed for Hi-Fi floor-standing speakers as a versatile alternative to carpet spikes. The technology provides a high degree of isolation from whilst resisting lateral movement, giving the listener improved clarity and perfect alignment during playback.

While all Hi-Fi speakers exhibit some oscillation during operation, their underlying surfaces may cause internal reflections to become centred causing a phenomenon known as smear. GAIA’s isolating design principles neatly avoids the problem keeping the soundstage intact and enabling a more three dimensional and natural sound.

With every track, I consistently heard tighter bass and lower midrange, with greater focus and depth…

Are my speakers a fit?

One of the questions we get most often is about compatibility across different speaker brands and models.

Whilst many speaker manufacturers across the world subscribe to a handful of standard thread measurements, innovative engineering styles and design aesthetics over the years have resulted in a number of different spike thread types being introduced.

As part of IsoAcoustics’ mission to bring proper isolation to the greatest number of listeners possible, we launched our own comprehensive range of Thread adapters to cater for even the most esoteric speaker designs.
