Eliminate parasitic vibrations and increase sound clarity and focus with OREA Bordeaux isolators. With a capacity of sixteen pounds, the Bordeaux is ideal for heavier components like monoblocks, speakers, power conditioners, and turntables. Made of machined stainless steel, the Bordeaux has a low-profile design to minimize any increase in height.

OREA Series: provides extraordinary levels of isolation for high fidelity audio components and turntables.

Each Bordeaux will hold up to 32lbs (14.5kg) and have a colored ring on the bottom isolator that denotes the model and weight capacity. The OREA series are packaged individually to allow greater flexibility when determining the number of units to use. We recommend a minimum of 3 units under each component, depending on weight.

The upper flange of the OREA is designed to provide a suction-cup-like effect and adhere to the underside of the component while the lower flange adheres to the supporting surface. All the energy is managed within the core of the OREAs, which are tuned to work within specific weight ranges. This results in greater sound clarity and a more open soundstage providing authentic, three-dimensional sound.

The existing feet on an audio component may connect well and fit nicely around the perimeter of the Bordeaux. Alternatively, you may get better performance by either removing the feet entirely or placing the Indigo around the existing feet to have them connect directly to the chassis or base of the component.

Weight Capacity

The weight capacity for a single OREA Bordeaux isolator is 16 pounds (7.2 KG). The OREAs are designed to be used in multiples to match the weight of the component or speaker. The total weight capacity is calculated as follows:

Total Weight Capacity = [Weight cap. per isolator] x [Qty of Isolators]

The total weight capacity for the OREA Bordeaux is summarized in the table below:

  Quantity Total Weight Capacity
32 lbs (14.5kg) 3 96 lbs (43.5kg)
per isolator 4 128 lbs (58kg)
  5 160 lbs (72.5kg)
  6 192 lbs (87kg)

 

It is common to use 3 or 4 OREA isolators for each component or speaker, but keep in mind that it is most important to stay within the weight capacity of the OREA isolator.

The weight distribution of the component can also be taken into account. If, for example, the component is heaviest at the back, then it is common to use 3 isolators with 2 positioned at the back corners and 1 positioned front/center.

Benefits of Isolation Equipment

Equipment can be sensitive to vibrations and forces. Removing parasitic vibrations releases new levels of sound clarity and openness when used with amplifiers, DACs, CD Players, turntables and more.

Applying patented IsoAcoustics design principles provides the highest degree of vibration isolation and energy management for high fidelity audio components. Removing parasitic vibration releases new levels of sound clarity and openness when used with amplifiers, monoblock amplifiers DACs, CD players, turntables and more.
