"I was not prepared for the overall improvement the ARCHs made. Compared to the sound of the speakers and stands sitting on spikes, the improvement to overall transparency and clarity was immediately obvious. The mid-range was less colored, and imaging was better defined. Mid-bass response was enhanced and leading-edge transients were more pronounced. More energetic momentum and timing with a nice ease of flow and a silkiness urged me to get up and dance—and I’m not a dancer. The changes were not subtle, and truly enhanced the listening experience."

Gingko Audio is proud to announce that we have been awarded a US Patent number 7743882-B2 for our Cloud Vibration Control Platform. The patent is awarded on June 29, 2010 by the US Patent and Trademark Office in Washington DC. The Abstract of the Patent states:
A vibration-control platform that, in some embodiments, includes a bottom plate having three or more wells. The wells receive a plurality of vibration-control elements, which are used to isolate a supported object from vibrations. In some embodiments, the vibration-control elements are rubber balls. The presence of the wells facilitates placement of the vibration-control elements under a top platform or directly under an object, especially when the object is located in a tight space, such as in a component rack, or when the object has a non-uniform weight distribution.
The patent shows an embodiment of the Platformula™ technology in the Cloud vibration control platform design. Since its introduction in 2004, the Cloud platform has garnered many awards and rave reviews. We have demonstrated its efficacy at many audio shows where an overwhelming majority of the showgoers agreed that they hear a significant and consistent improvement in the sound with the use of the Cloud under audio components. We have sold thousands of Clouds to happy customers worldwide.
