Oyaide’s rationale behind design and production of the INS-BS insulators:-
“The Oyaide INS-BS Brass Insulators are developed as an insulator that attenuates vibrations from a device and an installation surface and doesn’t lose musical harmonics and dynamics. On one surface, there is aφ20 4mm deep concave in which INS-CF can be set-in. This combination enhances signal-to-noise ratio and alters the timbre of the playback sound impression.
Furthermore, a hole for the screw mount is placed on the centre which enables you to attach INS-BS directly to the devices.
The body is made of RoHS compliant pure brass which is specialised for hi-fi sound by reducing impurities such as lead, iron, or cadmium, which may cause turbidity of sound.
The body, hole and taper angle are trimmed by NC machining that is extremely accurate. And to apply ‘half-bright chrome plating’ on the body gives not only higher rigidity and durability to the surface of INS-BS, but also a beauty to the texture.
On one side of INS-BS, a carbon FRP board is attached for the stability of the contact surface and induction for vibration to the body. And, the CFRP board is 0.01mm projected upward from the body which enables to make only the board contact to the surface.
φ20 4mm deep concave in which INS-CF can be set-in for enhancing signal-to-noise ratio and altering the timbre of the playback sound impression.
A hole for the screw mount is placed on the centre, which enables you to attach INS-BS directly to the devices.
Attention: Please make sure that the insulator of the devices is attached by screw and detachable before trying to attach INS-BS to your device. And since the length of the hole is 5mm, the shorter screws than 5mm cannot be used. In addition, please use a washer if a screw head is smaller than concave. Screws and washers are not included in the package.
The insulators can be used where either side can be top, depending on how you like your musical presentation.”
