Levitation Vibration Control

    Wouldn't it be wonderful is you could isolate your audio gear from vibration by making it float in the air? The LVC pods, from Gershman Acoustics, can do just that. Each pod contains magnets of the same polarity. Magnetic repulsion causes levitation.
Now, we must admit that we scoffed when we heard about this, because the theory appears to have a hole in it big enough to run a UPS truck through. Then we tried it on a tube amplifier, and heard pretty good turn into terrific. We're convinced.
The LVC40 is designed for gear weighing about 40 lbs (18 kg). The LVC90 uses stronger magnets for heavier gear, something like 90 lbs (about 40 kg).
We offer them in sets of four. If you want individual ones (because you want only three, or you bought three and you want a fourth one), we'll break up the sets as well.
