Micropoints & Triplepoints
Our best performing footers all incorporate a three-point top, the cure we developed for the major weakness of conventional cone footer design: the flat top. In our listening experiments, transferring vibration out of a component via point contact rather than flat area contact always sounds cleaner and better. Mapleshade's unique three-point contact eliminates the unavoidable micro-rattles between a flat topped footer and the imperfectly flat bottom of the supported equipment. Adding the three points on top yields surprisingly more detail everywhere—from the deep thunder of the tympani to the silvery treble of triangles.
Our Triplepoint Heavyfeet and Triplepoint Megafeet, suitable for wood-bottomed speakers or components, use three small points that are 3/16” high. For components with flat metal or plastic bottoms, our Micropoint Heavyfeet and Micropoint Megafeet are Mapleshade's very best performing footers.
