Again manufactured from the excellent RDC dampening compound, the RDC2 cone is designed to work under amplifier or source components, although we have found them beneficial under large power amplifiers and loudspeakersRDC 2 Cones are in our opinion one of the best ways to isolate any hi-fi component from unwanted vibration. RDC does not add to or subtract information from the stereo picture but reveals what is already there it does not get in the way of the music. This cones performance is so staggering that many high fidelity publications are endorsing its use.
"...soundstage became more focused and stable, guitars had more power, depth and texture. But is was the voice that really did it. Far more real, the breathing a totally natural part of the performance."
These cones do not work on the single point principle, but rather force any vibration to take the longest route which is achieved by the cones scouped out top section. Anything placed on these cones will only rest on the outer edges. Supplied in packs of 4.M6 and M8 threads also available as an optional extra.
Having had remarkable success replacing spikes with RDC1.2 cones with M8 threads in my speaker stand bases, I decided to try the RDC2 cones with M8 threads as replacements for the spikes on my old Sound Org amp stand. The amp stand is made of L-shaped steel bars and a glass shelf with spikes into the floor and between the steel and the glass. The steel rings when not attached to the glass and it’s quite noticeable how much more ‘dead’ the structure is with the cones replacing the spikes. The results aren’t as significant as with the speakers, but mid-range colouration are banished and every element of a complex record such as Mingus Ah Um, can be individually followed whilst still very much gelling as a whole. This is with a highly capable and revealing YBA Passion A650 power amp.
