  • Townshend Seismic Isolation Podiums are

  • Produce a wider and deeper sound stage.

  • Enhance clarity throughout the whole frequency range.

  • Improve bass definition.

  • Eliminate structure-borne feedback between the speaker and vibration-sensitive equipment.

  • Allow for neighbour-friendly high-level listening.

  • Eliminate irritating boom caused by coupling through the floor to adjacent rooms.

The Seismic Podiums add a mere 2cm to the height of a loudspeaker. This is important not just for obvious centre-of-gravity reasons, but because boundary proximity affects low frequency performance, so raising a speaker up too far will make for a leaner bass than originally intended.

The Seismic Podiums break the acoustic connection between the floor and the speaker, preventing the passage of deleterious vibrations both to and from the speaker cabinets.

Speakers are freed from the ever-present seismic activity and room/floor interactions that seriously degrade sound quality. The result is simply magical, allowing listeners to hear into their favourite music in a way they were never able to previously.

By eliminating the resonance between the speaker-cabinet mass and the floor, the sound will be noticeably clearer, much more tuneful, controlled and natural.

Bass boom is significantly reduced, and there will be a far larger, much deeper and wider sound stage. The sound becomes natural and more enjoyable.

Each Podium platform uses Townshend’s innovative ‘Captive’ Load Cell technology to give a stable four-square footprint that extends well beyond the perimeter of the speaker cabinet. Used for fine levelling adjustment via a rotatable top cap whilst on the bottom is an adjustable foot to compensate for out-of-true floors. The tough black steel platform has a large area that accommodates any shape of medium to large speaker or subwoofer, with or without spikes.

What our critics say

"The way it removes the speaker’s interaction with its surroundings is mind-blowing, bringing clarity to the entire frequency range that enables it to communicate more effectively with the listener. You haven’t truly heard how your speakers can perform until you’ve placed it on one of these Seismic Podiums.”

Townshend Seismic Podiums produce a result that goes way beyond what you might expect from ‘speakers on springs’. To get an improvement in absolute resolution, precision of timing and solidity of stereo image from something so apparently simple is extraordinary. These things really do change the game, move the goalposts, and revolutionize the way we should think about speaker support. This is not an accessory… it’s an essential. "Enthusiastically recommended." Lee Dunkley - Hi-Fi Choice.

“So what do Seismic Podiums do for sound quality? If I said “everything” you wouldn’t believe me, but the answer is not far off. They dramatically increase low level resolution so you can hear more detail, they clean up the bass like you wouldn’t believe and the improve dynamics and speed...

The effect of putting a speaker on the Seismic Podiums is quite dramatic. I did the demonstration to the guys from DALI recently when they brought round a pair of Epicon 8 speakers for a forthcoming review. They couldn’t quite believe the improvement in coherence and timing it wrought and the extent to which the sound is able to escape the boxes. Then there’s the bass, which is suddenly incredibly articulate, three dimensional, and powerful. This is true of every speaker that I have tried on these bases, and the irony is that the sound is faster and more fine detailed than it is with spikes. There is none of the edginess and emphasis on leading edges that spikes produce, yet there is greater immediacy. In all honesty, I’d say you don’t know how good your speakers are until you isolate them from the floor.

...Given the thirty plus years of spike indoctrination that we have been treated to, this is a hard pill to swallow for many, but when you find out that Alan Sircom is using Townshend Podiums under his Wilson Duette IIs and Paul Messenger, one of the earliest and most fervent spike enthusiasts, is also using Townshend Isolation under his Bowers & Wilkins 800 Diamonds, it makes you realize that anyone who really listens will appreciate their benefits. I took a pair of Podiums to a friend with Wilson Benesch Chimera speakers a few months back; he didn’t like the bronze adjusters that the earlier models featured, but loved the sound and had to get some. It seems the bigger and more revealing the speaker, the more it benefits from isolation. My friend’s system literally came alive when we put them in; it opened up and started to do stuff that you wouldn’t believe achievable without a major component upgrade...

"Genuine speaker isolation is hard to achieve, but thanks to decades of R&D, Townshend Audio has managed to make an isolation base that cuts out energy down to 3Hz and does so in a stable and easily installed fashion. Now all the company has to do is let the audio world hear the benefits. It won’t be an easy job, and there will always be those who prefer the character that spikes bring. But for anyone that’s genuinely interested in what’s on the recording, on hearing more music, they represent a major breakthrough in the pursuit of high fidelity, and that is what this game is all about. But don’t take my word for it, get a demonstration, see the light, and hear the difference!" Jason Kennedy, HIFI+
