ISOACOUSTICS OREA

OREA Series: Eliminates parasitic vibrations and provides greater sound clarity and focus. The OREA’s are ideal for electronic components including Amplifiers, DAC’s, CD Players, Speakers, and Turntables. Made of machined stainless steel, these isolators have a low-profile design to minimize any increase in height.

Each OREA model is designed with a different weight capacity. They each have a coloured ring on the bottom isolator that denotes the model and weight capacity. The OREA series are packaged individually to allow greater flexibility when determining the number of units to use. We recommend a minimum of 3 units under each component, depending on weight.

 

Three OREA models tuned and optimized for each weight range

The OREA’s are designed to be used in multiples to match the weight of the component or speaker. The total weight capacity is calculated as follows:
It is common to use 3 or 4 OREA isolators for each component or speaker, but keep in mind that it is most important to stay within the weight capacity of the OREA isolator.

The weight distribution of the component can also be taken into account. If for example the component is heaviest at the back, then it is common to use 3 isolators with 2 positioned at the back corners and 1 positioned front/center.

The weight limits are based on the performance curves which are illustrated in the chart below:

FAQ

Which components benefit the most from isolation?
All audio equipment will benefit from isolation. The biggest gains can be achieved by isolating speakers and subwoofers. Isolating turntables, tube amplifiers, and CD players are good places to start because they are particularly sensitive to vibration. Isolating Preamp tubes is important as issues will be amplified later in the chain.
What is the difference between the ISO-Puck and the OREA series?
The ISO-PUCK was originally designed for the pro audio and Musical Instrument (MI) channel, and used with studio monitors, guitar/bass amps, DJ turntables, etc. The OREA, on the other hand, is designed for home audio. The performance curve for the OREA models are narrower in weight range and will provide a slightly stronger sonic benefit in its range than the ISO-PUCKs. The more effective isolation results in more sound clarity and focus.
What is the difference between the Aperta series and OREA series?
The Aperta series is recommended if your speakers would benefit from tilt adjustment to better focus the tweeters to ear level. If your speakers are already at the correct height, then the OREA series is recommended as a low-profile isolation solution.
Does the OREA work with speakers?
Yes, the OREA series can be used with speakers.
Can the OREA’s be positioned underneath the existing feet?
Whenever possible, we recommend positioning the OREA’s directly underneath the chassis or cabinet of the component or speaker. If the existing feet cannot be avoided, then the OREA’s can be positioned underneath the existing feet. The challenge with positioning the OREA’s underneath the existing feet is that often the weight of is concentrated on the center of the OREA. it is best if the weight is applied evenly to the top of the OREA isolator.
Is the suction cup connection required for the OREA’s to work properly?
The suction cup effect is not required for a strong connection. The OREA’s will have a suction cup connection to smoother surfaces. For textured surfaces, the OREA’s will have a strong friction grip.
How do I choose which OREA model to use with my speaker or component?

We recommend choosing the OREA model base on the weight of the speaker or component that they will be supporting. It is common to use 3 or 4 OREA isolators for each component or speaker. The weight capacity per OREA isolator is as follows:

OREA Graphite – 4 pounds (1.8 KG) per isolator
OREA Bronze – 8 pounds (3.6 KG) per isolator
OREA Indigo – 16 pounds (7.2 KG) per isolator
OREA Bordeaux – 32 pounds (14.4 KG) per isolator
We recommend using the IsoAcoustics Online calculator for determining which model to use with your speaker or component.

How are the weight limits determined?
The specified weight limits are determined based on the performance curves. The products can support additional weight without harm, but the isolation performance is beginning to decline above the specified weights.
What are the benefits of isolating equipment?
Equipment can be sensitive to vibrations and forces. Removing parasitic vibrations releases new levels of sound clarity and openness when used with amplifiers, DAC’s, CD Players, turntables, and more.
What direction should the IsoAcoustics logo on the OREA’s be facing?
When used with speakers, optimal results are achieved by positioning the OREA’s with the logo facing forward, in line with the speaker’s drivers. When using the OREA’s on turntables and other electronic components, the orientation of the IsoAcoustics logo will have no impact on the performance.
