Gingko Audio Acoustic Resonance Clarifier (ARCH)

 

Gingko Audio Acoustic Resonance Clarifier (ARCH)

 

  The unique shape of the patented ARCH Acoustic Resonance Clarifier ($199 to $599) and its material construction make it an effective vibration control base for speakers and heavy audio components. Ginko Audio's ARCH is constructed from a lossy material that dissipates vibration across the audio frequency spectrum. Its design is a curved shape with two ends that rest on the floor at an angle, thus minimizing transferred energy from the cabinet to the ground. In addition, the ARCH flexes under the weight of the speaker as the latter vibrates, further reducing the transferred energy. Read about the ARCH Technology and how it works. For a more detailed explanation of why it performs better than conventional speaker spikes, read this White Paper.

 

Constrained-Layer Construction with Inert Material
TGinko Audio's ARCH is constructed from a lossy material that dissipates vibration across the audio frequency spectrum. The material is seal-coated with shellac to make it resistant to moisture and strengthen its rigidity under heavy speakers and audio components. It provides a stable and sturdy base for the speaker cabinet and the drivers mounted on the cabinet thus resulting in a clearer and more transparent sound.

The ARCH design is a curved shape with two ends that rest on the floor at an angle, thus minimizing transferred energy from the cabinet to the ground. In addition, the ARCH flexes under the weight of the speaker as the latter vibrates, further reducing the transferred energy. The ARCH is sealed in an alcohol-based shellac coating ready for use or for refinishing if desired. Different finishes may result in slightly different sonic effects:

The ARCH may be painted with water-based or solvent-based paint. The paint will stiffen the ARCH and make the sound brighter and more dynamic depending on how many coats you use.

The ARCH may be sealed with a polyurethane coat. Again, the polyurethane will stiffen the ARCH, so be careful not to use too many coats, which may cause the sound to be brighter.

The ARCH may be finished with a thin wood veneer. Any layer of veneer and coating will stiffen the ARCH.

You may experiment with a rubber coating compound like Flex-Seal or rubber shrink-tubing. However, our experience is that the rubber coating has the opposite effect of paint or polyurethane, making the sound less bright. In some brighter-sounding systems, this may work well.

As an added bonus, from November 29th through December 6th (2019) Ginko Audio is offering 15% off retail pricing of their ARCH. Simply use code BFETM at checkout to enjoy your discount.
