LFD AUDIO: Why so few retailers?

Indeed. Unfortunately this is a combination of market forces (greedy landlords, local authorities who see customers arriving by car as little more than walking wallets) and supply restrictions. A while back I did contemplate going back into retail premises – selling only LFD, Funk and Harbeth with perhaps Benchmark DACs, PS Audio digital and, perhaps, Read More →

LFD AUDIO: The visco-elastic isolation feet supplied with the NCSE II

Hello Howard: I am the proud owner of a pre-owned NCSE Mk II which I recently bought on Audiogon from Goldprint Audio in North Carolina. As someone else noted, the LFD manual is “comically brief” (British understatement, gatekeeping?) I placed the feet it came with roughly in proportion to the corners of the unit. Is Read More →

LFD AUDIO: Isolation solutions – part #3

Can you describe please your thinking behind your turntable isolation system using Plexiglas, Sorbothane sheets and machined granite? All materials have subjective resonances (which correlate approximately to their actual physical resonances), e.g. MDF sounds a bit muddy compared to plywood or hardwoods, stone has a “heavy, but slightly bright” sound. Therefore isolation platforms/ stands must Read More →

LFD AUDIO: Visco-elastic feet

Dr. Bews writes: The black “rubber” insert (normally the part of the foot that makes contact with the bottom of the equipment) is a visco-elastic (exhibits both liquid and elastic properties) urethane polymer, designed to optimally absorb mechanical vibrations over a wide frequency and temperature range. This unique material has the ability to convert vibrations Read More →

LFD Audio isolation solutions – part #2

The Viscoelastic material you use – what is the optimal and thickness ? 3 pcs are generally  better, but unfortunately more unstable. 4 pcs is more easy to apply under a piece of equipment and more stable, but slightly less good subjectively. Dr. Richard Bews Do you have another question for us? Great. Just click […] Read More →

I have been auditioning the three systems that LFD produce. Stage #1 is a set of 4 very well machined stainless steel cups into Read More →

LFD AUDIO: isolation solutions – part #1

The Viscoelastic material you use – as I understand it they supply this material in varying densities and thicknesses. Without revealing the details, did you apply physics, mathematics and materials science to determining the appropriate balance between density and thickness – or did you experiment? Or both? Viscoelastic (Sorbothane type) material employs same density, since Read More →
