i use 5 sets of HiFi Stay Trina twin ball footers, and three of the HiFi Stay Dharma resonance dampers, in my system.

i really like the Trinia's; the dampers (bottom picture above......can also be used as a record weight/clamp) i have not investigated enough to have an opinion.....they don't harm anything and might help. it worked decently as a record weight but not as good as my Durand record weight.

the build quality is top notch, nothing cheap feeling for sure.

Has anybody tried the SOFT JELLY (SJ)?
It seems like the baby sister of HARDPOINT TRINIA. :)

SJ is very good in my view.
3 words I use to describe the Soft Jelly will be NEUTRAL, DETAILED and MUSICAL.

I did not get this feeling when using the Stillpoints Ultra SS. My friend also commented the SJ was better than Ansuz Darkz, which I have no experience with.

HI FI Stay products are good, but now I don't use them.

Taiko Audio DAIZA is world best.

Hi Esotar,
In the pool of balls... I'd like to know your comments on TRINIA, SOFT JELLY, STILLPOINTS & FINITE-ELEMENTE products. Based on sound quality, if TRINIA is rated 100, how much will be SOFT-JELLY?
(I own large Gyrotension Vega first generation)

Thank you. 감사합니다 :D

Soft Jelly mechanism is very different with Trinia.

Soft Jelly makes only reducing component's vib figure.

So in specific case, bass sound amount is reduced sharply.

But Trinia keep sound balance.

Soft Jelly with SGM Extreme is meaningless.

The footers never be worked.

If you like Still Points Ultra 6, you will not like HI FI Stay products.

I didn't test Finite Element footers.

Before I didn't know Taiko Audio DAIZA, Trinia is no. 1 I thought.

Now my opinion was changed.

DAIZA is top class vib control penal.

HAHA, I think so.

That names were made by their movements.


When I put Soft Jelly on my hand, it looks like pudding.

So first name was "Sweet Pudding", but many Korean audiophiles couldn't pronounce this name well.

Thus, Soft Jelly.


Other products' names were also made by their movements.

So

1st : Ballerina Soulier --> Too powerful movement --> Ballerino Soulier

HAHA

Hi Esotar,
Are you able to describe how the sound changes when (my 150kg) speakers are put onto Ballerino 80 Triple Swing?What is the effect from Single Swing to Double Swing to Triple Swing?
Thank you. :D :D :D

Bass amount : Triple Swing < Double Swing (Single Swing Shoes are not made.)

Bass Resolution : Triple Swing > Double Swing

If your speakers' bass sound amount is too much, to select Triple Swing is wiser.

I think I am going to buy the Ballerino Triple Swing 88.
Hope I am making a right choice by putting it under the Wilson Benesch Cardinal speakers.
:oops:

I asked Mr.Pyeon. and he recommanded Triple Swing 130.
Please send a mail to info@hifistay.com. He will answer.
Thanks pke10000.
Is Mr Pyeon the owner of HifIStay?
Why does he recommend the Triple Swing 130 over the 88?
I would just like to understand the science behind his engineering, as the TS-88 already meet the load-bearing of the speakers with excess. Thank you. :)

Yes, Mr.Pyeon is an owner of Hifistay.
I don't know the details. 88 will work well.
But it is just popular product.
He has suggested 130 from 2018 for flagship, over 100kg speakers.

After reading about many vibration control devices and solutions and kind of taking a less obvious choices I landed with HiFiStay Stella 100 Triple Swing footers. Oh boy what a great great decision from many aspects. For me when buying a product personal aspect is among the most important ones i.e. when a human being is treating you as a human being and being nice, polite, approachable etc., and Mr. Pyun and Mr. John Lim have been all of the above and beyond that. Kudos to both of them!
Product - wooow - it does look impressive already on the screen but holding them and standing in front of you and below the speakers you can feel the quality, craftmanship and super dedication towards the details. I would say each pcs weights more than 1kg - just crazy for footer I would say.
With the help of my wife we placed them under the speakers and first thing you notice is that speakers despite the weight of almost 90kg when you gently move them start to wiggle on the footers.
Now the more important part - performance - well here things get really "hot" as this one exceeded all my expectations even my wife commenting out of the blue - wow this really sounds great and different now. So in nutshell bass got clarity and definition it never had, crispy, punchy, detailed and all this opened a space for cleaner and more intimate mids and HF. System is more musical and fluid and imaging was elevated to new level. So overall I'm honestly stunned with the improvement as I did not expect something like this.
Overall - what a great job done by HiFiStay and Mr. Pyun!!

I still need to place in the system “Sound Wings” and this will be part two of the this system upgrade

Wow great write-up Golum - I'm going to get a set for 30-day trial underneath my Wilson Benesch Resolutions and will report back

@Hamburger - did you end up trying these beneath your Cardinals?
