Nature is the best constructor.... period !

Standing still.. is one of the most important things your speaker needs to do !


To realise a speakers performance it is imperative that your speaker is stable and is as physically free from parasitic distortion's as possible. Generally treble vibrates from at least 5-20 kHz and that the surface of the baffle, as well as the other panels on your speaker, sing along approximately at around 400 to 900Hz. Using vibration cartography (a common acoustic engineers tool) it is quite easy to visually see that speaker baffles even at modest levels, almost have a life of their own.Therefore its easy to see that obtaining good sound when distortion is being introduced like this must be a loudspeaker designers real achillies heel. In addition because of this fundamental problem as well as the entire speaker cabinet sympathetically moving forwards & backwards , you also loose a lot of musical energy ! This loss and confusion of energy effects the clarity in the bass, its weight and power, as well as smearing of the midrange which in turn generally causes a brighter presentation overall. This is of course a simplified outline of quite a complex issue.

Vibb eaters..and what they do !

If you remember your basic Physics lessons you will know that you cannot get rid of energy but simply convert it into another form. This is a fundamental law of physic's and of course nature. We have choosen a route that converts un-wanted energy into heat, as this is the least harmful to our precious musical signal.

‘Vibb eaters’ consist largely of our own dedicated copper-based sand mixture with the addition of small quantities of, amongst other things , specific precious metals. The properties of this mixture offers very interesting characteristics, particularly in the areas of magnetic fields, field effects, as well as dealing with physical vibration & surface energy. When you place a ‘Vibb eater’ on top of your loudspeaker speaker or on top of your electronic equipment the vibrations and various magnetic fields that come from the box's are absorbed, then through the mechanical friction between the copper granular mixture the excess energy is converted into very low level heat.

It's easiest to experience first hand the effect Vibbeaters have on your speaker by simply placing one ( there are a number of different sizes & weights for different speaker or electronic's cabinets) on top of your speaker while music is playing through them. Placing your hand on the speaker you should find that it is now almost free from vibrations but If you then move your hand/fingers and touch the ‘Vibb eater’ you will sense a great deal of activity, especially near the very top of the Vibbeater.

Guess where all the energy has gone ?

When it comes to speakers.. the ‘Vibb eater’ work on three specific fronts :

1. Through its weight it gives further stability to the speaker cabinet itself.

2. The vibrations and fields that are generated in the speaker box are most intense at the top of the speaker where the energy cannot go any further.
When placing a Vibb eater’ on top of the speaker you are in essence extending the length of the speaker box to a critical point outside of the cabinet.
The key is that that energy is no longer a part of the speaker itself. The Vibbeaters then simply absorb the energy and transforms it in to heat.

3. The magnetic characteristics that make-up the ‘Vibb eaters’ granular mixture can have a very positive impact on the fields generated in and around
 the loudspeaker itself.   

What you should.... expect hear.

In summary the treble tones become cleaner and free from the overtone distortion's of a vibrating baffle. The bass becomes quicker, tighter and with a deeper more textured sound. Above all the sound picture is widened which should give you a more precise position in width, depth and altitude. Last but not least there should now be a flow and a calm in the sound.

‘Vibb eaters’.... for electronic equipment.

These have a special sand mixture which leans towards the optimisation of the magnetic characteristics. They still of course offer a greater stability to the chassis of the equipment as well as absorbing vibrations but the ‘Vibb eater’ also neutralises a part of the magnetic field from the electronic equipment. You will always have to experiment to find the optimal position for the ‘Vibb eater’ but we usually find the best place to start is closest to the power cable in-let or the products transformer.


ES-PAD

Improving upon the Lynxfeet was always going to be a very difficult job but as with all things Entreq we discovered the solution & the way forward through the developments of our other new products. Through the application of these discoveries & theories we have eventually turned those ideas into reality.
   
With the design of the ES Pad we have focused on the transfer of very high frequency vibrations & energy. In our design process we found that this area of the frequency spectrum had a far greater influence on actual sound quality than we would have ever thought possible.
The ES Pad is barely 35mm high and incorporates a threaded multi faceted hard acrylic base, with a mineral filled soft Pad making direct contact with the equipment or product itself. 
This Isolates the equipment from the foundation of what ever it is sited upon while the direct contact of the Pad, to the equipment, drains away high frequency energy / vibrations through the mineral mixture itself, converting this energy into a harmless low level heat.

These are incredible performers with a consistent performance!



 Infinity AC Wrap. 

In every cable that transports an alternating current a magnetic field is created. The fields are strongest where the cables are plugged in and where there are any subsequent connections. Using AC Wraps offers a calm stability to the sound, even with cheaper Power cords and cables. If you are already using more expensive cable's, we are delighted to say that no matter the brand it will work better with an Infinity AC Wrap. They do however have other interesting applications! Try them on your speakercables. It might be the most praisworthy upgrade you ever done. Please speak to your dealer or distributor for greater clarity on this particular application !




K2 & Everest

We have always used wooden caps on our binding posts, wood is totally neutral and adds no new capacity and in that sense it is perfect. The opposite in fact to using plastic’s and most metals, indeed we have used this fact to add our all-new features. You simply replace the wood caps on your existing ground box with either the K2 or Everest product.
K2 use two different metals and in Everest we have mixed four.
By add this metalmix trough the bindingpost you change the performance in the whole box, not only on the used outlet. That mean that you can fine tune the box so it´s optimal for you. 
 
The following are examples of the effective performance enhancements available to both old and new customers, but as always. It´s your eaars , your choice. We recomend you to test and find out yourself 
In our opinion K2 are more calm than Everest and fit very well for system that are bright and need some more body. 
 
MinimUs: Single Ground post only - The replacement of a K2 or Everest to a Minimus will then allow it to, at least, out perform a standard Silver Minimus!
 
Tellus: Three Ground posts -  As above the replacement of the K2 or Everest on a Tellus will offer a performance level higher than a Silver Tellus.
 
Silver Tellus: Again the K2 or Everest applied to a Silver Tellus will start to approach the performance of the mighty OlympUs!
 
Everest then applied to OlympUs Tellus and ……well you get the picture!
 
On ground boxes with multiple outlets you can of course change over each Ground post one at a time as and when funds allow OR of course all at once! You simply match the K2 or Everest to ensure optimal performance.
Attache K2 our Everest and you will get a obvious leap in performance of your existing groundbox.
