Since the introduction of spikes on the bottom of equipment tables, speakers and speaker stands there has been the problem of ensuring that everything is solid and level without damaging the floor. Over the years we have seen solutions ranging from coins through to purpose made hifi floor protectors.
The Silent Mount Floor Protectors, are definitely something very special. We were so excited when we first heard them that we have decided to import them exclusively from Japan. They are certainly not cheap, with a range of different products available from smaller Aluminium spike mounts right up to the range topping, beautiful Titanium stand spike mounts.
Technically, they appear simple, however the combination of materials, shape and complex construction, underlines the many hours of research that have gone into the finished article. The difference that they will make to your system is astonishing. To decide if they will have the positive impact on your system we believe, you will need to hear them for yourself.
Silent Mount SM7 stainless steel speaker isolation mounts
4 x 70mm spike mounts for speakers and racks. Hand crafted in Japan.
The stainless steel SM7 Silent Mounts are designed to be used with both floor standing and stand mount loudspeakers. Slightly larger than the SM5s (70mm diameter) and heavier, the silent mount will deal with the considerable energy that loud speakers are capable of generating. We use the SM7s with all the speakers in our dem room - and in every case the Silent Mount SM7s improve definition and sound staging, bass instruments in particular gain a greater sense of pitch and timbre, but in truth these improvements are very noticeable throughout the frequency range of the speaker. Music sounds more coherent and there’s a greater sense of performance and involvement.
Like the SM5s the SM7s are supplied with a set of felt pads, in this case though they should only be used if the floor surface is highly polished.
Each SMF7 stainless steel isolation mount will support up to 50 Kilos in weight.
