GAIA I Isolator Feet: Isolating speakers to mitigate coupling is critical, but attenuating
reflecting vibration coming back from the hard supporting surface and resisting
off-axis oscillations delivers great acoustic accuracy and focus. When a speaker is placed on a hard surface,
secondary internal reflections result. Any artifacts of this smear that is
similar in the two channels is perceived to be in the center, causing the sound
stage to collapse. IsoAcoustics' GAIA I isolators eliminate this smear
resulting in a larger and more natural 3-dimensional sound stage.
Note: This package includes 4 isolator feet for one floor-standing
speaker. You will need to purchase two GAIA I(s) for a pair of floor-standing
Compatibility: The IsoAcoustics GAIA I is designed for a wide variety
of floor-standing speakers weighing up to 220 lbs. The GAIA I replaces the
existing screw-in feet of your floor-standing speakers. It comes with M8, M12,
and1/4-20 hardware to thread into the bottom of your floor-standing speaker. The
GAIA I measures 2.4375" in diameter and 2.3125" tall. The GAIA I are
adjustable allowing you to angle the front or back of the tower speaker.
IsoAcoustics Patented Design: The GAIA I isolation feet incorporate
IsoAcoustics' patented design principles to deliver extraordinary acoustic
results. 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.
Stainless Steel Construction: GAIA I features a machined
stainless steel structure, finished in stately dark chrome. High-quality
stainless steel construction
incorporating IsoAcoutics' design philosophy deliver extraordinary acoustic
Simple Installation: Remove your floor-standing speaker's
existing threaded feet and install the GAIA I isolators in place of them (M8,
M12, & 1/4-20 hardware included). Optimal results are heard by installing the GAIA
I isolation feet with the logo facing the listening position, or rotated 180-degrees, to align the isolators with the speaker's motive forces.

Optional Carpet Spikes: Designed to maintain stable support on carpet,
the optional Carpet Spikes (sold separately) work with the GAIA I isolators to
provide improved performance with thicker pile and carpet under pads.
Optional B&W Plate: The optional B&W plate (sold separately) 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.
