Alto-Extremo from Germany, finally back in the US, is celebrating their 10th anniversary and has made great improvements to optimize resonance transfer with a wide range of absorber feet.
When used properly, Alto-Extremo's absorbers create unprecedented sound quality with better three-dimensionality, clearly defined instruments and outstanding dynamics. Alto-Extremo strive to make their absorbers as flexible as possible so that they deliver optimal results regardless of how you use them (see Alto-Extremo's absorber chart picture).
The Classic (formerly known as Fat-Boy) is an absorber for tube-devices. The body is made of stainless steel and the puck of Delrin. Between the puck and the body there is an extra large ball made of bronze. Thanks to this unique design and optimized platform the Classic provides better absorption and can be used with racks with glass or stone bases.

"...I have the Alto-Extremo under everything and have to say they are quite amazing... until the Alto-Extremo footers (Lyd II & Fat-Boy) I never realized how much distortion from vibrations was affecting the violins..."
"...anyone who wants the highest quality isolations devices get Alto-Extremo. Phenomenal. Highly recommend."
"...these, my second set of Lyd II, this set placed under my turntable, increased the clarity and speed of the set up. Like switching to a London, after using a MM or MC. Quite profound & illuminating the effect of these remarkable devices!"
"...the rubber ring is in fact part of the 'magic' of the Lyd II, it gives the Lyd II a more soothing sound, although less accurate. So for me, the Lyd II proves to be a much better buy than the more expensive Finite Elemente."
"...I wanted to let you know that after three weeks of listening with the Alto-Extremo Lyd I absorbers under my von Schweirkert speakers, the sonic effects are quite positive. Less smearing of the mid-range, tighter bass, etc. Although pricey, excellent product with significant results. They should be recommended by the speaker manufacturer, esp. for wooden floors."
"...This is my fourth set of Alto Extremo, a Fat Boy this time, and I have tried the Lyd I, II, and Exact.... I am so happy about the resulting sound improvement."
"...these feet/absorbers (Lyd II) are in a class of their own, so obvious is their ability to reduce feedback. 5 Stars!!!!! Indispensable!"
