Throughout the development process of the Q platform numerous advances in the area of resonance management were made. Originally developed for internal R&D, Magico is introducing the QPods to maximise front-end system performance. The pods themselves are CNC-turned and milled from hardened stainless-steel, oxygen-free copper, and hard black-anodised aircraft-grade aluminium. These materials create the constraining layers for the damping material that is alternately clamped between to create a single traverse dissipating unit, which we call the QPod.
Vibrational wave propagation through the floor, stands, and the equipment itself is converted into hear energy through the side-to-side movement (know as « shear deformation ») within each layer of the pod. By adding a multi-leveled constraining layer mechanism to equipment standoffs, electrical and mechanical vibration-induced artifacts are acutely reduced, ultimately resulting in marked improvements to signal fidelity.
