FINISHED MAPLE PLATFORMS WITH ISOBLOCK
All the gear in Mapleshade's studio is mounted, via brass footers, onto maple platforms on Isoblocks. Two inch maple has made a satisfying improvement under every stereo component we’ve tried. Turntables improved astonishingly! (Incidentally, the platform should be slightly larger than the component it supports.) Stepping up to a four inch thickness is a serious sonic upgrade. That’s what Mapleshade's studio tape machine sits on—as does our mastering computer, external CD burner and hard drives, A/D, and everything else in the studio signal path. There’s no question you hear the difference in our CDs. In
independent head-to-head listening tests, the Mapleshade Triplepoint/Platform/Isoblock system invariably sounds better than $5000 Vibraplane air suspension platforms—much warmer, more detailed, and more naturally dynamic at less than one twentieth the cost.
Ditto for expensive composite platforms, sandboxes, and air tube/bladder suspensions from Symposium, Zoethecus, Townshend Seismic Sink, Bright Star, Nuance, Polycrystal, Silent Running. Use our 30-day money back to judge for yourself.
Maple Platforms with toned and black lacquer finishes are made to order and take
6-8 weeks to ship. We require a 50% non-refundable deposit for these
