Mad Scientist BlackPod Mini TC footers give you high performance at a low price. Same construction as regular Blackpod TC footers, same size and type of balls. Useful under smaller items. Note that a set contains one Tungsten Carbide ball and the other balls are Zirconia Ceramic.
BlackPod Mini TC raises the bar even higher. They use two high-tech materials - Cemented Tungsten Carbide and Zirconia Ceramic. Both are very hard, among the hardest known substances. But TC is denser, which gives a higher propagation velocity. We use a single TC ball to provide a preferential super-fast path to ground. Basically they sound more composed and musical with one TC ball and two Zirconia.
Using a combination of constrained layer damping using lossy composites and mechanical multi-path diodes, BlackPod Mini footers give you high performance without the high price.
They give your components a solid, quiet and non-resonant path to ground, allowing them to perform at their best. Remarkably enough, this can make a seriously large difference to the sound. Typically you gain resolution across the board, but most noticeably (often) in the treble region, with more resolution and delicacy. Also you'll notice a more-solid bass, a larger and more 3D image.
BlackPods can be used either ball-up or ball-down. It's well worth trying both ways - even placing one BlackPod the other way up to the other two.
