Everything vibrates, period. For the audiophile, this is a serious challenge, since vibration affects the delicate audio signals in virtually every hi-fi component.
It raises the noise floor in turntables and interferes with the vibration-sensitive crystal oscillators in computers, DACs and streamers. In disc players, it causes the error-correcting circuitry to work overtime, while in both valve and transistor amplifiers, it jangles the microphonic components. All of which serves to constrain the optimum performance of the overall system.
Blue Horizon’s new Sanctum isolation platform is specifically designed to isolate individual high-performance components such as turntables, DACs, preamplifiers, power amplifiers, CD players and streamers from all sources of unwanted vibration.
