Vibration

Ultra Feet have been designed to reduce the damaging effects of vibration in audio equipment. Placed beneath devices (available in sets of three or four), they use advanced energy-absorbing materials which disperse vibration as heat.

Designed to protect and enhance almost any piece of audio equipment, Ultra Feet are available in four different ‘levels’ or load-rated options (Levels 2-5). Each UItra Foot is also height-adjustable and decoupled on both sides: where it interfaces with the supporting surface and where it meets the equipment, acting as a fully-fledged independent system avoiding any kind of mechanical coupling.

Technogel

Ultra Feet’s upper-level models use Technogel®, a unique ‘soft-solid’ polyurethane material which combines the 3D deformation properties of a fluid and the memory-shape properties of a solid body, offering consistent performance over its lifespan.

Vicoter

Bassocontinuo has once again partnered with Vicoter, the Italian vibration-control consultant, in collaboration with the prestigious University Politecnico in Milan, to conduct accelerometer-based laboratory testing.

If used with Bassocontinuo’s equipment supports (racks), the load ratings align with the ranges in the portfolio: Level 2 is designed to complement the company’s Classic Line, Level 3 the Reference Line, Level 4 the Revolution Line and Level 5, the Ultimate Line.

Price Availability

Four ‘levels’ (load-rated options) are available: level 2 0.1-10 kg; level 3 10.1-20 kg; level 4 20.1-40 kg and level 5 40.1-80 kg.

Bassocontinuo’s Ultra Feet are available now in sets of three or four priced from £127 (set of three) and £159 (set of four), for a level 2 load-rating.

Bassocontinuo is distributed in the UK by Fine Sounds UK
