Customer Comments for Flying Saucers
"What I did perceive at moderate or sane listening levels was beautiful clarity of piano and both solo and group vocal micro-dynamics on a number of recordings. Also, on another recording thrilling distinct un-smeared very deep and fast "drum roll" on the orchestral tympani/kettle drums with remainder of the orchestra simultaneously playing fortissimo - every instrumental choir in its place on stage and audible in realistic balance; I actually heard conductor Leonard Bernstein vocalizing twice during the performance, something I never noticed over four decades of listening to this particular vinyl recording." - June 2013
Customer Comment - "The Flying Saucers you sent for my room are incredible! With my Blu Ray player soundtracks of movies that have lots of special sound effects are very 3 dimensional and music discs are more 3 dimensional, too, and more out in the room. I will be ordering a bunch more Flying Saucers for the windows in adjacent rooms." - June 2013
Customer Comment - "Hello Geoff, I'm a Principal Engineer for a well known Aerospace corporation; you can look me up on LinkedIn. You can also see what is in my system in my recent Synergistic Research review on stereotimes.com. In my system these products improved the soundstage, increased the resolution and lowered the noise floor in ways no other products I have ever tried (but one must consider I have a highly tweaked out system already). First I installed the two outlet covers on non-audio outlets. The outlet covers must be doing some resonance control in my room because my speakers disappeared even more and the vocals were much clearer. I could now understand each word sung in my reference recordings (Herbie Hancock, The River, 24/96K download). The copper foils had a similar effect but the took more of the edge off the music. All instruments and voices became more natural with the frequency extremes more resolved. With both products installed, it was like a major source of distortion was eliminated. These are no brainer products. I highly recommend the Signature Clever Little Clock, TruTone Outlet Covers, and the Flying Saucers. Feel free to post this on your website." - Michael Girardi, reviewer for stereotimes.com, March 2013
Customer Comment - "I have to tell you, these things resulted in a phenomenal improvement." - Feb 2013
Customer Comment - "Tiny copper foil Flying Saucers are the single greatest tweak I have ever tried. A revolutionary single agent total system upgrade/optimizer. Must hear it to believe it possible. Totally surprising." - Feb 2013

Another New Product!! - Baby Promethean Mini Isolators - The Art of Isolation
Baby Promethean High Performance Mini Isolators
Customer comments - "New Baby Promethean mini spring isolators placed under my Cary tube amp give better clarity to the recorded sound. More beautiful detail from lowest bass up to highest treble without false emphasis on any portion of the audible spectrum." - Jan 2013
Machina Dynamica's new product - Baby Promethean Mini Isolator - is a high-performance hardened steel compression spring designed for isolating audio components from structureborne vibration. Baby Prometheans are very linear and eliminate a number of problems associated with air springs and air bladders, including the need to replenish air, mantaining level, the overly-damped stiff fabric of airsprings and air bladders. Four Baby Prometheans can isolate a component weighing up to 40 lb. Due to their very low profile - 1 inch compressed height - they can be used for applications where space is at a premium, such as under components on racks. Baby Prometheans provide explosive bass performance and great dynamics, clarity and detail throughout the entire spectrum.
Their low profile and outstanding LATERAL STABILITY allow Baby Prometheans to be placed directly underneath the component, even when the component center of gravity is relatively high. Recommended load is 25-40 lb for set of 4 springs; so when isolating lighter components like lighter weight CD players, springs should be PRE-LOADED with a slab of flagstone, granite or marble. Marble or ceramic tiles also work well and are fairly inexpensive -- 12X12 marble or ceramic tiles from Home Depot can be stacked to achieve the desired load. Each Mini Isolator is rated at 10 lb so 5 are required to isolate a 50 lb component, for example.
Baby Promethean can be used isolate VERY HEAVY components. Heavy components must be mounted on suitable large board or plates so that the Mini Isolators can be arranged in a very wide pattern below the board or plate.
Baby Prometheans should ALWAYS be placed on a hard surface. Soft or rubbery material should not be used on either end of the Baby Promethean. Baby Promethean Mini Isolators are intended for tube and solid state amplifiers, CD players, DACs, turntables, etc. Price $13 each.
