A simple experiment I conducted 15 years ago which you can repeat at home proves these internal vibes—not the external room vibrations—are the bad actors muddying the music signal.
These products trap the vibes inside the component, exacerbating muddying of the signals, especially in the bass frequencies. By design, our footers do the opposite. Rigid and massive, they lock the component to the shelf below using single-point contact. Nevertheless, our experiments show that the wrong footer material or too little mass, or the wrong shape can reflect distorted vibrations back into the equipment. Brass was by far the best: much more dynamic, vibrantly warm and more detailed.
Our day moneyback lets you make your own comparisons. We normally offer unattached footers in sets of three. Using four unattached footers requires shimming the height of one to compensate for the inevitable slight unevenness of the surface below. For threaded footers under very narrow tower speakers, we recommend four only to add stability.
Of course, use four when replacing four threaded factory feet. I was shocked by the build and finish of your thick carpet piercing heavy foot cone points yesterday when I received them in the mail. It is rock solid and the heaviest cone point I have ever used in my system. I never expect a cone point is this heavy. I have been using a set of three feather-like plastic and metal combined cheap cone points underneath my new Manley Lab Steelhead. It made slight improvements.
But after I installed your Heavy Foot cone points, the improvements were shocking. I'm a believer. Imaging was more solid, the timbre of the instruments more real, Jormin's bass notes rock solid with no mush and VERY obvious distinction between Christenson's two toms and the snare. I have now had the same pleasure revisiting numerous other favorite discs.
Now it's time to move into the Samson stands and a Mapleshade amp stand.Hello All, It's been a while since I posted here. I wanted to ask a question. Has anyone here ever purchased anything from Mapleshade Records?
If anyone has purchased any of their products please tell me what your experience has been good or bad. Their recordings are superb. I highly recommend them.
Their other products range from overpriced all the way to, you're out of your mind. They sure don't need to sell many with the profit structure they work with.
I have a sampler of their jazz recordings. Each track is beautifully, naturally recorded--but the performances are trite and unimaginative IMO. There are some exceptions however according to various reviewers. Unfortunately I don't recall which are considered worth listening to. And Kendra Shank's "Afterglow" ain't too shabby, either. I own both Kendra Shank and Monica Worth. Both are great recordings with very good, real world performances.
They sound like the singers would naturally sound standing right next to you. Very nice work. Their blues stuff is exceptionally well recorded and quite musical. I also like their Ionoclast for zapping CDs and interconnects. I was asking this very question maybe 2 years ago. I will be buying more soon. I would agree that everything else is quite expensive. Except maybe some of their modified equipment. Again, to each his own. He uses two PZMs baffled into a tape machine through a preamp of some sorl.
PZMs are not typically used as "lone stereo pair" mics. I guess he has modified his, though. For the record just looking at a picture of their power cords scares the shit out of me.
I don't know how they can meet any electrical code. Search form Search. Show Munich More Reports. Log in or register to post comments. January 23, - pm. Last seen: 8 years 8 months ago.

JoeE SP9.I'd like feedback on Mapleshade products, and their tweak devices in particular. The company presents some very strong arguments for component isolation combined with using heavy brass footers to "drain" unwanted vibrations and resonances into heavy maple platforms.
I think their equipment platforms and speaker stands look beautiful, especially when combined with the various styles and sizes of brass footers that are supposed to radically improve the sound quality. Are their claims valid? The company offers a no questions asked money back guarantee on their products- which is impressive. But I've almost never seen the products reviewed in Stereophile, Absolute Sound, or any of the other mainstream audio publications.
This applies to their tweaks, cables, interconnects, components, upgrades, etc….

I would think a company that appears to have such confidence in their products would also have them chosen for review by experts in the field. Audiopoints, actually were reviewed by the magazines, but you would have seen them listed many times as Michael Green's Audiopoints because the original reviewing was done before Star Sound Tech was in business. As far as I can tell Mapleshade doesn't actually sell any isolation products.
I say this as the person who introduced vibration isolation to Pierre at Mapleshade nearly 20 years ago by demonstrating my sub Hertz isolation platform in his lab in downtown DC. If it's not a mass on spring type device it ain't isolation. Not isolation from very low frequency vibration anyway. I include magnetic levitation, negative stiffness, bungee cords, steel springs, air springs and air bladders, and squash balls in my definition of mass on spring devices.
My terminology may have been inaccurate, but I'd like some feedback on the Mapleshade and Audio Point brass footers- whatever is used to drain unwanted vibration and resonances from equipment.
Like I said- I haven't seen that much commentary on their products, so I'm wondering what other opinions are regarding how they improve sound- versus the claims the manufacturers make.
I did a quick Google search for Review Mapleshade Brass and got a lot of hits. Reviews are out there. I am not a big fan of brass myself, much preferring NASA grade ceramics. Hope that helps. I have owned both the Michael Green brass cones and Mapleshade brass cones in the past. I know at least for myself, if someone shares the associated equipment, model number and in my case year of model it helps to dial in the sound.
If you remember the packaging I can tell you what you bought. During the early years of the Audiopoint there were a few changes made where I slightly changed the shape, speed of turning and removal of the coating.
Most of the cones that went out were actually not the original Audiopoint cones at all but a redesigned cone I made. You can tell if they were Brent's by scoring the surface slighty and seeing a hint of finish. My version you can actually see the turns.Hello All, It's been a while since I posted here.

PZMs are not typically used as "lone stereo pair" mics.By high-end standards my collection was a modest one, maybe or so LPs. But they were choice—carefully culled over the years, only the best discs had survived.
These were stored on classic Per Madsen stackable oak record racks accumulated back in the s. By the turn of the millennium my collection was neither growing nor shrinking, and Per Madsen was no longer building record racks.
However, with the premium vinyl resurgence of the last few years my collection has begun increasing once again. But riding to the rescue was Mapleshade.
Achieving renown for their indie audiophile recordings, Mr. Sprey and his partners also researched and developed what has turned into a full-blown catalog 68 pages and counting and a grab bag of tweaks, cable, racks, and mods.
They are beautifully sawn with clean edges and immaculate corners. Even in the unfinished oak that I opted for, the smooth grain was like silk to the touch. The racks are stackable and stable up to four units high. At 27", they are wider and heavier than the Per Madsen 18" standard, and the planks are cut thicker—all the better to support the latest crop of gram reissues.
However these Mapleshades were a snap. Each rack is made up of two square vertical end pieces, a pair of right-angle planks, and two flat planks, all connected by eight wood screws and four tiny wood plugs.
Pre-tapped holes are aligned and neatly sunk into each rack to accept the wood plugs for righteously secure stackability. No glue is required anywhere. It took a mere fifteen minutes to assemble a Mapleshade rack, gather up a few dozen homeless LPs, and slide them securely into place. Aligning the edges of each jacket just as I always have, I stood back and surveyed my efforts and felt a wave of nostalgia.
As vinyl continues to be issued and reissued, LPs have never seemed more alive and relevant. Thanks to Mapleshade finding a place to store them will never be a problem again.Click here for a complete listing of product manuals. Email us or call Treating your CDs and treating your audio cable connections is the cheapest way I've found to seriously improve the sound of any stereo.
You may not be into stereo gear. But if you enjoy listening to music, sometimes you must wonder whether your speakers sound good enough. Twenty years of striving to make perfect-sounding recordings has taught me that wire is a component just as crucial as speakers or amps.
Who would have thought three brass footers could transform the sound of each of your stereo components? Surprisingly, the very best ones use maple, not space-age materials.
You get better sound with a massively solid, really rigid rack designed from the ground up for resonance-free vibration control. Pure AC power makes a huge difference in sound.
No stand matches the rigidity and resonance-free vibration path of our solid maple. My new Phonophile product family consists of upgrades that dramatically improve the sound of LPs. Launched in by Mapleshade partnered with inSound, Omega Mikro wires have always been our uncompromised attempt to build the best wires in the world.
More upgrade products. We do lots of custom platforms and speaker stands for customers with unusually sized components or speakers — or with unusual space and shape requirements for racks.
We have built non-rectangular platforms, speaker stands up to 5 feet high, multi-bay racks, racks with staggered shelf heights and overhanging shelves. Technical Questions?
