The Aurios ProMedia Isolation Bearings, as the name implies, provide isolation for all media components: turntables, CD players, tape decks, preamps, amps and loudspeakers, but also for DVD, VCR, TV, microphones, instrument amps and other performance, broadcast and recording components.The Aurios bearings are designed to isolate the component from horizontal micro-vibrations. Vistek's experience in civil and structural engineering, and in the high-tech world taming and eliminating micro-vibrations, has given them a long experience in understanding the problems encountered and engineering effective solutions.
There is constant low-level vibratory activity going on around us. Sometimes it crosses our threshold of perception, but most of the time it just lurks in the background. In addition to our mechanical devices generating this low-frequency crud, there's the vibratory energy of the Earth itself--a problem even in non-earthquake zones. In Vistek's analysis and experience, most of this horizontal and vertical energy lies in the 10 to 100 Hz range. Historically the horizontal component has not been well addressed in the marketplace. Furthermore, vertical vibrations can quickly transform into horizontal ones. Think of the growing and expanding ripples when you plop a stone into a still lake--the spreading circles are the horizontal vibes. An isolation device that isolates horizontally is then just good applied physics.
