Seismic Isolation Podium for Speakers (Pair) By Townshend Audio
Townshend Audio pioneered speaker isolation and the Townshend Seismic Isolation Podiums offer a ready-made, long-lasting, and flexible solution. Speaker isolation is a key component of any reference system built by Jaguar. By eliminating a substantial amount of the bass energy that ordinarily travels into the floor and loads your listening your sound will achieve much better bass definition and treble frequency articulation.
Townshend Audio products are imported from the United Kingdom and are designed by Max Townshend, one of the most innovative designers in the industry. We never bought into the concept of speaker isolation until we tried Townshend’s speaker isolation devices in our own reference system.
The Townshend spring mechanisms are vastly more effective at absorbing vibration than bearing or point devices (speaker spikes actually facilitate transmission). A substantial amount of vibration energy is absorbed into the spring-loaded isolation devices, which not only lessens the amount of sound transferred into the floor below but the energy loading your listening space is gone, giving your music ease and freedom…bass and treble frequencies tighten up and yield more definition from top to bottom.
Townshend Seismic Isolation Podiums are made with impressive build quality and attention to detail. Speakers can be oriented in either direction, giving you flexibility for each platform size with different speakers and Jaguar clients can order additional sets of isolation pods to enable different capacity ranges.
“If I could distill the Seismic Isolation Podium speaker stands down into one word, that word would be ‘organisation’. They not only bring order to the soundstage, they apply sense of understanding in terms of the instruments you hear. That is, each instrument makes more sense.”

“Overall I consider the Podiums my number one upgrade for 2016 in my living room and will never return to spikes.”

philippe litzler –
“Seismic Podiums are an evolution of the bases Townshend has been developing since the nineties, they isolate the
speaker on damped springs. In this latest iteration those springs are adjustable for a range of weights and the platforms themselves come in variety of sizes to suit different loudspeakers. ”
Adnan Rafiq –
“Playing music through speakers on spikes is much like plucking a ruler in a vice, and the whole cabinet resonates as a result.”
David Magnan –
“Placing my loudspeaker on a Seismic Isolation Podium proves to be much more convincing than I originally imagined. The way it removes the speaker’s interaction with its surroundings is mind blowing, bringing clarity to the entire frequency range that enables it to communicate more effectively with the listener. You haven’t truly heard how your speaker can perform until you’ve placed it on one of these. Enthusiastically recommended.”
