    did you ever measure Stillpoints Ultra 5's ? It would be interesting especially since these footers seem to use similar bearing technology that Stillpoints has been using for years now..

    No, I do have miniís but never bothered to take measurements.

    So if i am reading correctly the trinia works with the artesania rack. Is this correct? Does it sit on the metal cross bars or does it screw into the threaded holes?

    Thanks

    if you look at the second picture in my original post it shows 2 wood boxes each with 4 Trinia's. in each box is a plastic sleeve with 4 screw posts. it appears that these screw posts are used to attach the Trinia to the Artesania arm in place of the pad (or over the top of the pad). it's possible it does not work that way but that is what it looks like to me.

    Hi, sbnx~!

    HI FI Stay has various type screws for Trinia to be compatible to all type racks.

    Also if your component is used a screw that we don't have, we will customize it.

    When ordering, you can ask for special type to us.

    Since Mike uses Adona Flagship Rack, we just send standard screws that were the most used.

    If Mike changes to Artesania type rack, he just sends me email.

    appears to be anodized Aluminum. don't know the grade. maybe Esotar does.

    Mike is right~!

    I want Trinia to compare to global foot dampers.

    So I introduced it in WBF.

    Fascinating thread Mike and thank you Esotar from joining the discussion with some details. Thank you for the nice photos in the opening post. Of course, I am not surprised that someone quickly asked about the Center Stage footers. It will be interesting if someone here does an actual direct comparison under one component. A few contrasting descriptions come to mind. The CS footers describe mostly soundstage and sense of immersion impressions, seeming to focus on low level information imbedded in the recording becoming more apparent through the lowering of overall system noise floor. You seem to be describing an overall improvement in resolution and clarity. Are these distinctions correct as I have described them?

    Another contrast seems to be the break in period and availability. Are these Trinia footers immediately available for purchase? From your descriptions, it seems that their effect is immediately noticeable without the need for break in. Have you tried three footers instead of four per component?

    You describe the component as "floating" when placed on these footers. If one applies force from one side, does the component sway gently and then eventually come to rest again? Do you know if these footers are recommended under turntables? I only saw images of CDPs and amplifiers in the chart. Interestingly, the suggested placement of the rear footers are different for these two components.

    Congratulations Mike for finding yet another way to improve the sound of your system, which by all accounts, was already "mature". I commend you for taking the risk and trying the recommendation from Esotar. It will be interesting over time as user impressions start to hit this forum for both the CS footers and the Trinia to see what this new wave of vibration management is all about.

    For completeness..Stillpoints needs to be in the comparison mix. These appear to use similar ceramic bearing technology to drain energy and decouple from the rack/stand....just like Stillpojnts...a different tonal flavor perhaps ?
