The Perfect Isolation Feet for Source Components
You may not be getting the full performance potential from your source components if you're not isolating them from room vibrations. Pangea Audio Pico Feet are made specifically for source components like CD players, Blu-ray players, tuners, phono stages, and line level preamps. They also work beautifully with DACs and other digital gear. Pangea feet help keep the muddying effects of vibration out of your signal chain, letting you enjoy cleaner, purer audio and video.
Sorbothane Visco-elastic Polymer
Audiophiles around the world recognize Sorbothane as the leading material for absorbing and cancelling vibrations that can adversely affect audio and video performance. Sorbothane is a visco-elastic polymer. Although it's a solid, it behaves like a liquid in relationship to vibrations. Vibrations excite the loose bonds between the Sorbothane molecules, causing them to rub against each other and change the vibration energy into quickly dissipated heat energy.
Unique Shape Improves Performance
Pangea Audio's designers worked with the engineers at Sorbothane to create the unique shape of Pico Feet. The feet are stable and firm under the weight of an audio component without being too rigid to compromise performance. For best results, use the foot with the 'P' pointing downward for maximum contact with the component chassis.
Optimum Weight Range
Pangea Sorbothane feet have an optimum weight range where they are most effective in absorbing and cancelling vibrations. Once the maximum weight is exceeded, the material is no longer effective unless more Pangea Sorbothane feet are added.
The recommended weight range for a set of four Pico Feet is 16 to 40 lbs per set set, making Pico perfect for source components. Need more support? Buy more feet, or step up to Pangea Audio Mega Feet for heavier components.

|Good Vibration Killer|
these were perfect for isolating my high end gear from floor vibrations. I bought both sizes for my amp, preamp and cd player. placing my hand on the chassis I cannot detect vibration from the speakers.

|Excellent Isolation Solution|
Using these small feet under my Oppo BDP105 disc player which I use as a CD transport and music streamer and also under my PS Audio DAC. I was concerned about the vibrations from the CD motor affecting the Oppo's performance, but these tacky sorbothane feet seem to do a great job of damping vibrations in the chassis. Ditto for the PS DAC. Do not let the low price fool you these do a great job of isolation

|Completely elminated unwanted vibration|
These completely eliminate the vibration that I can see and feel in my Marantz DAC1 headphone amp which I also use as a preamp. Before using the Pico feet I was able to see my Velodyne subwoofer vibrate the DAC1, but no longer.

|Great Value From Pangea|
Another excellent Pangea product at a reasonable price. Good isolation for my tube preamp.
|- Gordon G, CA|
Bought these to use lighter weight components to isolated vibration for a clearer cleaner sound on tube system. If you want to really want to hear what everything really sounds like, this is a must have accessory.

|Yes, They Work|
Do these things work? I would say "yes.". The improvement is subtle but it's there especially if you have high-end gear. For a cheap boom box these are a total waste of money.

|Yes, I Hear A Difference|
This is a very good isolator. Make sure that you get the right ones these are for lighter-weight gear like CD players and preamps. I use mine under my Oppo blu-ray. There's a subwoofer not too far away and I was worried about the vibration. The BIG question is can i hear a difference? Yes, I hear a subtle improvement in clarity. I'm using the Oppo as my music server into a Musical Fidelity DAC.

|Great things come in Pico-size packages .....|
I purchased a set of four Pico footers for a new Cambridge Audio Azur 350C. Having used other sorbothane footers for years, I purchased them having a good idea of the improvements I would hear in the sound from the Azur 350C. The details in the sound with which the footers prevent the vibrations of the rig from interfering, throughout the acoustic spectrum, is wonderful to my ear - no matter how many times I hear this effect. Wonderfully textured and subtly timbred bass, holographically life-like mids and highs that I describe as gently undulating waves of shimmering light only begin to describe what I hear which previously had been concealed by the undamped vibrations in my CD player source. For just under $30 for a set of four, they provide an unparalleled bang-for-buck to this audio path - taking my listening experience using it to whole new realms of musical insight and sonic delight.

|Great Little Upgrade Under My DacMagic|
I put 4 of these little pods under my DacMagic for better isolation from my audio rack..Instantly I received much tighter/defined low-end from my Klipschs..For only $29 you cant go wrong and they stick to the chassis which makes dusting and cleaning much easier..I thought my DacMagic sounded great when I added the Pangea P/S..Im very pleased!
