IsoAcoustics Gaia I
Gaia I feet are sold in packs of four and are rated to support speakers up to 220 lbs. For lighter speakers, check out Gaia II and Gaia III. We also have the IsoAcoustics Puck for bookshelf speakers which also work wonders with all components, not only speakers. One customer said the Pucks clearly did a better job than his Stillpoints on source components!
The GAIA isolators are machined units that incorporate IsoAcoustics’ patented design to provide a high degree of speaker isolation, while resisting lateral movement and oscillations, to maintain alignment with the listening position. Internal reflections from the hard supporting surface are attenuated resulting in greater sound clarity and openness.

Harry Weisfeld said, “Installing the GAIA isolators on my KEF Blades gave the biggest improvement in sound I have ever heard on the system. Better than changing cables or electronics, the noise floor was lower, the focus was better, and the bass went deeper. All around a total success.”
The soundstage blossoms to open up a three-dimensional image of natural, spatial sounds.
Optimal results are heard by installing these units with the logo facing the listening position, or rotated 180 degrees, to align the isolators with the speaker’s motive forces, lift and place the speakers into position as the GAIA lower isolator will adhere to the supporting surface:
“When a speaker is placed on a hard surface, secondary internal reflections result. Any artifacts of this smear that are similar in the two channels are perceived to be in the center, causing the sound stage to collapse. The GAIA series of isolators eliminates this smear resulting in a larger 3-dimensional sound stage.”
Three GAIA models tuned and optimized for each weight range.

B&W Plate – GAIA I
The B&W plate adapts the GAIA I to the Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus and Diamond series speakers. The ball-casters are removed and replaced with the B&W plate which provides a threaded hole for the appropriate stud to screw into.
Designed to maintain stable support on carpet, the optional Carpet Spikes work with the GAIA I isolators to provide improved performance with thicker pile and carpet under pads.
