Stereophile "Recommended Component" 2006
A Quantum Leap in Quashing Vibration
Unique shape and design give AudioQuest Q Feet a qualitative advantage over competing isolation feet for a quantum leap in vibration control.
AudioQuest Q Feet earned inclusion in the coveted Stereophile "Recommended Component" listing for April 2006. "These feet are the best means of isolating components from vibration."
The unique Q Feet are filled with the same energy absorbing Sorbothane damping gel as the old half-sphere shape of AudioQuest's Big Feet. But damping ability is now improved over the solid Sorbothane design by the distinctive 'Q' shape, which reduces shear in the horizontal plane. The net result is improved vibration control.
You'll find ubiquitous uses for Q Feet, from DVD players to surround sound processors, receivers, and more. The two-piece design lets you use them safely on fine furniture. Q Feet are way Qool!
A set of four Q Feet supports up to 40 lbs.

Recently dipped a toe into getting back into vinyl. Bought a VPI Nomad because it got good reviews and because it already had a cartridge mounted and had a built in phono stage. I thought Id made a huge mistake. The sound was dull and lifeless, I thought I just didnt spend enough to equal the rest of my equipment. The TT is on a so so rack on a tiled floor over concrete and about six feet on either side from a pair of Velodyne DD subs. I knew the turntable needed better isolation but I didnt want to break the bank. I thought Id give these a try. Just wow! The sound is so much clearer, more focused, and MUSICAL. I may never buy another CD.

Due to economic restraint upgrading my cdp wasnt an option, a friend guided me on the path of vibration control. The Q feet seemed to me technically to be the step forward from a brass cone. Placing 4 Q Feet under my vincent cds6 mk2, i was the loose bass and the muffled voices exited stage left. The soundstage realy opend up in front of me. stageing was well focused, bass extension was deep and defined. Treble seemed toned down a bit, though smoothed and relaxed. And the all important mid range was brought forward a touch with a nice sheen of intimacy. Although these changes were minute in difference, they were still noticable and largly welcomed. And for the price I wont be looking at swapping the cdp soon. But well surly experiment with isolating my pre/power, speakers in an atempt to see how far this path goes.

|Q Feet - a revelation|
having tried many feet under my cd player all to no avail I tried the QFeet with a degree of pessimism. I found, however that these were the feet I had been looking for all this time. My new Cyrus CD6SE sounded even better than ever, with a more vinyl-like presentation inasmuch it was not only detailing the attack of notes but also correctly portraying the decay and accoustics. The best $125 I have spent for a long time. Nice one, Audioquest.
