The Turntable Feet ( or Turntable Isolation Kit) are a variation on Track Audio's Isolation Feet, with a very different profile and intended use. Designed specifically to isolate analog rigs, the Turntable Feet are designed to be also used upside-down on a shelf with a turntable supported on their very short and wide spike.
The turntable's body is supported solely by four tiny cones mounted to massive feet, giving the turntable all the isolation benefits of "floating in free air" but with a massive grounding thanks to their heavy bases. Highly effective on all plinth-based turntables, these feet don't add any mass to the plinth but provide a huge amount of vibration absorption and isolation from the shelf. Turntable Feet are a stunning upgrade for any component.
The turntable spike has a different profile altogether and is not designed for floor use. It should be used to sit on an equipment rack or table. The spike is isolated from the rest of the unit in the same way as our Isolation foot but it is designed to only lightly indentate the surface it is sat on. The turntable spike stops any lateral movement of the turntable or the equipment it is begin used with.
Track Audio Isolation Feet are the most massive adjustable after-market spikes we've ever seen. Weighing in at just under a pound each, these are not just big, they’re cleverly engineered as well. Offered in two versions, coupled and de-coupled, Isolation Feet are a stunning upgrade for any component.
Track Audio isolation feet feature a unique design based around an ingenious viscous damping system. Undesirable vibrations that would normally diminish the performance of you hi-fi are absorbed and converted into heat, leaving you free to hear from your loudspeakers only what the speaker designer intended.
The result: an instant upgrade to your loudspeakers. Fat and muddy bass becomes clean and tuneful. Harsh midrange is now clear and sweet. Stereo soundstaging snaps into holographic focus, and adjacent rooms are less affected by sound leaking through the building.
"The Track Audio spikes brought a sense of shape, power and energy to the music, a propulsive quality that kept things moving forward, full of purpose and intent...Just think of all the pleasure your speakers have given you. Isn’t it time you pampered them (and yourself) just a little?" "Having used Track Audio feet with a variety of speakers in a variety of locations, they've never once disappointed. They've always represented an upgrade over the original items supplied - in some cases significantly so." "I was ready for the ease of use, slick handling of levelling the speakers and setting their rake angles. What I wasn't expecting was the magnitude of sonic improvement they wrought."

Gorgeously machined and a huge sonic upgrade, Track Audio has created an entirely new product category for us: speaker spikes. An off-shoot of a British machining company with clients in the military, aerospace, medical and automotive industries, Track Audio creates astonishingly high-quality products from high grade steel. Designed to last a lifetime and sound great doing it.
The Isolation Feet use modular screw-in inserts on the top to allow them to be used with a broad variety of components. Machined from the same high quality stainless steel as the spikes, the inserts are available in a variety of different threads. M8, M6 and 3/8-16 inserts are included with the set, upon request, we can substitute the following inserts: 1/4"-20, 1/4"-28 or M10 or if you need other please request.
Dimensions: diameter 43mm, min height 47mm, max height 65mm.
Our range of speaker stands are built with a devotion to detail that will add modern elegance to any room, available in Satin Black or Silver anodised finish.

Good Vibrations? You would not build a house without strong foundations? Or drive a car with loose suspension. So why expect your hi-fi system to perform at its best without the proper support?
Your hi-fi works by generating sound waves. However for every action, there's a corresponding reaction: in this case, unwanted vibration and resonance. No matter how good your loudspeakers, the in-room audio quality can be significantly reduced by the effect of floor resonance, producing sonic effects ranging from muddy and indistinct notes to a harsh and wearing sound.
Track Audio precision-made speaker stands, isolation feet, spikes and spike shoes are designed to eliminate these effects and unlock the full potential of your hi-fi system.
Precision, Quality and Control Track Audio's range of support solutions is the result of detailed analysis into the detrimental effects of floor resonance caused by high-output loudspeaker designs. every product and component is designed and manufactured in-house in the UK from the highest quality materials, using detailed computer modelling and ultra-precision machining to ensure meticulous attention to detail and excellent performance.
We pay equally careful attention to the sourcing of materials and traceability of all parts and processes. All machined parts are produced to ISO 9001 standards.
