  • Description

    An audio system is a chain of coupled oscillators, each with their own individual resonant behavior. The resonances of individual components mechanically interact to create unique resonances. These resonances don’t exist alone and have a significant effect on the sound of the system. The effects of the Strange Attractor are cumulative.

    One goal of a Strange Attractor is to isolate a component from external energy sources, such as CD transports, transformers and vibrations coming from loudspeakers. When these random and chaotic vibrations enter the Strange Attractor, carefully shaped aluminum and graphite refract, dissipate, and reflect off a sequence of boundaries. This puts the vibrational energy into a cycle of decreasing amplitude and rotating phase, ultimately transforming it to heat, thus killing the resonance.

    A second goal is treat the internal resonant behavior of the component by providing a path for chassis resonance to be effectively transferred into the wide band dissipative environment of the Strange Attractor. By converting chassis resonance into heat, it is kept out of the audio band and from disturbing the music.

    A third goal is to reduce the amplitude of the resonance that results from individual components and the rack acting upon each other in the system. This third goal is a bit more complex. When viewing the audio system as a series of coupled oscillators, it becomes clear that no "one trick pony" design can reduce energy transfer, wide or narrow band, chaotic or non-chaotic, into or out of a component. Different solutions are required to address each component’s particular vibrational behavior. This is the reason there are three different types of Strange Attractors.

    The Decouple model adds a variable durometer elastomer layer above the aluminum and graphite “solid body” of the Attractor and is designed for those “noisy” components that transmit lower frequency energy into a rack or shelf, such as components with drive mechanisms or large transformers, unsuspended turntables, and even some tube electronics.

    The Attach and Universal models are designed for use under heavier components (racks, loudspeakers, large amplifiers, etc.) or components that do not respond well to the Decouple.

    The Attach is fitted with a stainless steel stud designed to thread directly into a component, thus replacing the stock feet. The Universal, with it's flat coupling surface, can be placed anywhere underneath a component.


    REVIEWS:

    “Strange Attractors remove both internal and external sources of vibration, hold your components very, very still, allowing your components to finally deliver all the music in your recordings. The effect is absolutely stunning; background noise vanishes, harshness and hash are banished, revealing a gorgeous tonal purity and dramatic dynamic range.” – Andy Schaub, Positive Feedback
     

    Note: Please specify the thread sized needed for your component when ordering the Attach model.
