The superiority of the spike is actually enhancing response, S/N ratio and resolution due to the controlling vibration propagation at a point.
Generally, for the spikes, spike bases are used together in order not to damage the floor. And it is well known that the characteristic of a spike base influences the total sound quality. The two things must be required for a spike base; one is high accuracy and another is rigidity of the material which can bear for one point weighting.
If the accuracy is low, due to the gap between spikes and a device, the one point contact doesn’t function fully. And also, for the low-rigid spike base, the device would be not stable by cutting contact point.
We selected the best material for our original spikes, INS-SP, as a result of examination and repeated listening tests.
The accurate cutting of SUS303 stainless steel by NC machining.
The SUS 303 stainless steel is a highly rigid material which has various better characteristic compared to other metals. This material for INS-SP is cut by highly accurate NC machining and it makes perfect contact to the spikes.
- The hairline semigross finish of surface
- The accurately cut concave
- The reversible function as a small insulator
- The combination use with INS-BS insulator base.
