• Utilizing the same design principles as the renowned QPod for front end equipment as well as the SPod and MPod for heavier speaker and amplifier loads, the APod is the ideal coupling mechanism for A-Series speakers as well as the S1 MkII. Based on the scientific design principles of Constrained Layer Damping, unwanted mechanical energy is dissipated away from the enclosure. Demonstrable results include increased dynamics, enhanced focus, greater resolution, and a closer representation of the original musical performance as it was intended during the recording process. The main structure of the APod is formed from multiple machined aluminum sections which when assembled form a vertical stack. A solid pure copper substrate center round is sandwiched by a top and bottom layer of aluminum that when compressed together facilitates the Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) function.

  • Throughout the development process of the Q platform numerous advances in the area of resonance management were made.

    Originally developed for internal R&D, Magico is introducing the QPods to maximize front-end system performance. The pods themselves are CNC-turned and milled from hardened stainless-steel, oxygen-free copper, and hard black-anodized aircraft-grade aluminum. These materials create the constraining layers for the damping material that is alternately clamped between to create a single traverse dissipating unit, which we call the QPod.

    Vibrational wave propagation through the floor, stands, and the equipment itself is converted into heat energy through the side-to-side movement (known as “shear deformation”) within each layer of the pod.

    By adding a multi-leveled constraining layer mechanism to equipment standoffs, electrical and mechanical vibration-induced artifacts are acutely reduced, ultimately resulting in marked improvements to signal fidelity.

  • SPOD – Utilizing the same design principles as the renowned QPod for front end equipment and the MPod for heavier speaker and amplifier loads, the SPod is the ideal floor coupling mechanism for S-Series, Q-Series and V-Series Speakers. Based on the scientific design principles of Constrained Layer Damping, unwanted mechanical energy is dissipated away from the enclosure. Demonstrable results include increased dynamics, enhanced focus, greater resolution, and a closer representation of the original musical performance as it was intended during the recording process. The main structure of the SPOD is formed from multiple machined aluminum sections which when assembled form a vertical stack. A solid pure copper substrate center round is sandwiched by a top and bottom layer of aluminum that when compressed together facilitates the Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) function. An adjustable spiked footer threads into the SPOD base and when locked into position provides solid coupling to the floor. The SPod is configurable for the Magico S1, S3, S5 (MkI and MkII), the Q1, Q3, Q5 as well as the V2, V3 and legendary Mini Speakers.
