Cloud 14A

$599.00

Cloud 14™ model with the same heavy bottom plate as the Cloud 11™ and the same top dimensions as the Cloud 11L, with a 4-inch height to accommodate a wood insert.

Description

The vibration control balls used with our Cloud platforms work optimally under a load of 10 lbs per ball. Since a minimum of three balls are needed to support the top plate, an ideal load is an audio component weighing 30 lbs. However, many components, notably entry-level turntables made by Rega, Music Hall, Project, etc., weigh less than 30 lbs. To compress the balls properly, it is best to add more weight to the component.

The Cloud 14™’s top plate has a wood insert that provides added weight. The combination of the added weight and the constrained layers of wood and acrylic results in the best performance for equipment weighing less than 30 lbs. Our lab tests and listening tests confirm the results.

Product Reviews

Is it worth adding a Gingko to a turntable like the MMF, which more than doubles the cost of the setup? It seems an absurd proposition, I grant, yet the improvements are more audible than what you will hear most accessory products, including cables, interconnects, line conditioners, cones, pods, pucks, mats, clamps, weights, yak, yak, yak. But, hey, you can answer the question yourself, thanks to Gingko’s 30 day money back guarantee, to which I’ll add a guarantee of my own: put on Kind of Blue at a healthy level and listen for thirty seconds – the difference will be loud and clear in all senses of those words. The pun is as unavoidable as it may be egregious, but the ball’s now in your court.
