Based on 20 years of experience in vibration control products, Gingko Audio’s design for the ARCH Acoustic Resonance Clarifier combines the best characteristics of several approaches:
- Constrained-Layered Damping — The ARCH consists of wood- and resin-based layers. This constrained-layer material filters vibration at different frequencies thus minimizing what is transmitted. The number of layers and their thicknesses vary across the different ARCH models to accommodate the varying weights of audio components.
- Suspension — With its curved shape, the ARCH works like a leaf spring, flexing under load to channel vertical vibration into smaller sub-components in the vertical and horizontal dimensions. The horizontal sub-components are not reflected vertically back to the audio component. This suspension-based approach is similar to Gingko Audio’s award-winning Cloud platform.
- Spikes or Feet — The ARCH works well under spikes. But for better performance, it can be used instead of spikes.
