Eliminates resonance and produces clear reproducibility

Plate type magnet floating base

The MGB-50 is sized to fit into a rack. It is an audio board with neodymium magnets placed at four locations on the lower part of the beautifully resonating laminated Asada cherry wood and combined with a strong African ebony wood base, the board itself floats due to the repulsive action of the magnetic force.
The MGB-50 isMGB-1and can be used for relatively heavy products weighing from 5kg to 30kg. It can be used mainly with power amplifiers, large CD players, and analog players.

Improved signal-to-noise ratio for clear reproducibility

Compared to general audio boards, which work by damping vibrations, the magnetic floating base floats audio equipment in a nearly non-contact manner, preventing vibrations from the floor from being transmitted. This eliminates not only external vibrations, but also the resonance of the audio equipment itself and vibrations reflected off the chassis. The elimination of noise improves the signal-to-noise ratio, making the soundstage quieter and the spatial perspective better, and improves the sense of localization and resolution with richer information. Bass is deep and powerful, and high frequencies are sharp and extended.
In particular, unnecessary swelling in the mid and low frequencies is absorbed, the balance of response is evened out, the tone is soft and uncloudy, and transparency is increased and detail is clarified.
Applicable models Power amplifiers, large CD players, analog players, etc.
Materials used Laminated asada cherry wood, African ebony
External dimensions 500(W)x460(D)x54(H)Board thickness: 32mm
Load capacity 5~30kg
Weight Approx. 7.0kg

The middle size MGB-50, which fits in the company's rack, is placed on the top row with an analog player on top. I was impressed by the increase in the number of notes and the deepening of the sculpture. It is clear that the effect of vibration has been eliminated, but more importantly, the resonance of the player itself has disappeared rather than vibrations from the outside. This means that minute signals are not drowned out, resulting in an increase in the amount of information and a longer fading time. In addition, the low frequency range is extended deeper and the high frequency range is sharper. The range of reproducibility is broadened. The effect is particularly noticeable on piano, where the touch is firm and sharp. Another significant difference is the clarity of the movement of weak notes. This enhances the expressive power of the sound and produces a highly vivid sound.
When a CD player is placed on the speakers, it is clear that the SN level has been improved. CDs should not be affected so much by external vibrations, so it seems that vibrations and resonances with ground surfaces have a strong effect on the equipment itself. In other words, the mechanism's vibrations are more likely to escape, which suppresses reflections to the state, thereby reducing the noise. This is fundamentally beneficial because the background noise is reduced and the sound field becomes quieter. The piano's grasp of touch is improved, and the strong chords in the bass register become clearer. The delicacy of the weak notes is improved, of course, and the extension of the high frequency range is also improved. A cappella is richer and more vivid. People's voices have more substance. The orchestra's dynamism is expanded, and the SN level is higher, which gives a better spatial perspective. The positional sense and depth of the instruments become clearer, and the overall presence seems to increase. The sharpness is sharp, and the instantaneous power of the tutti is powerful. The resolution is also improved by eliminating the muddiness at high volumes.

Insulator herePB-4-2is added here, the framework becomes thicker and the energy increases. The PB-4-2 is a point-contact combination of African ebony and gunmetal basses, and although the number of basses has increased, the music sounds even more vivid due to the increased power of the rising tone. The pizzicato of the wood basses adds thickness, and the kick drum sinks in without cloudiness. The a cappella music has a longer, more lingering finish, and the breathing and facial expressions of the voices are more clearly defined, which is also remarkable.
