SYMPOSIUM® Ultra Platform
The Symposium Ultra Platform evolved from our first product, the Super Platform, and was created to push the performance limits for a solid equipment platform further than had previously been possible. Experiments and listening tests in many different types of systems indicated that those aspects of the Super which could directly benefit lay in the thickness of the foam center section (which serves as a "heat sink" that converts mechanical energy to heat) and in additional constrain-layering of the critical top aluminum layer.
The Ultra retains the following features of Symposium energy absorption construction:
Density-ordered constrained-layer construction
Linear energy dissipation with low reflection to the component
Solid platform with no "bounce" for superior bass performance
No leveling problems
No leakage problems
No practical weight limit
No tuning or adjustment required- works with all components
Performance independent of its support surface
Ideal interface for Rollerblocks, cones, and all footer devices.
Resonance-free isolation of upper 9 octaves of the audible range
No interaction problems with tuned suspensions of turntables
Ideal for use on top of low frequency isolation devices
Not for isolation of extremely low frequency footfall problems - see the Segue ISO Platform page for low frequency vertical wave isolation solutions.
