Clearaudio Magix Magnetic Levitation Isolation Feet

It has been tried many times in past, with varying degrees of success, yet no one has achieved the ultimate goal. The objective is magnetic levitation, floating a component in mid air; its the holy grail of component isolation.

There are a number of difficult problems to solve in order to make the concept work. For example, how to control the obviously strong magnetic field surrounding the very powerful permanent magnets required to suspend any significant weight. Clearly, a strong magnetic field would make the device virtually unusable in the world of high-end audio, where many products are sensitive to such fields. Second, is how to maintain alignment of the magnets without some sort of guide or stabilizing mechanism, which would form a mechanical between the two magnets, and thus sacrificing complete isolation?

The Magix, a unique design from the German firm Clearaudio (well known for their superb phono cartridges and turntables), has succeeded where so many others have tried and failed. The have solved the issue of zero contact between the top and bottom of the isolation device with a proprietary centering system that keeps the two opposing magnets in perfect alignment. The second challenge of reducing or eliminating the strong magnetic field has been overcome using a self-shielding inner core.

From a sonic perspective, the Magix differ from other devices by what they dont do. Most any isolation device imparts some sort of character of its own. That may be increased detail, more speed, a slight softening, added brightness, etc., etc. The Magix strips all those artifacts away, and leaves behind a sense of purity and air. Background silence is increased, subtle details are allowed to unfold rather than being forced out, and the music ebbs and flows with a naturalness that is alluring.

I am strongly attracted to these magnetic feet, and found them to be something of a revelation among isolation devices. Give them whirl, and I bet you too will experience their Magix in your system.


Dimensions: 3.5 (loaded) high and 4.25 in diameter (Magix may be too high for use on some interior rack shelves where space above the component is limited)

Weight bearing capacity: 12 pounds each (take the weight of the component you intend to isolate and divide by 12 to determine the number of Magix you will need)
