When Ted Smith and the PS Audio team voiced Snowmass, what did they use under the DirectSteam DAC for footers? And what platform was used under those footers?
In a recent Audio Bacon review, “A Survey – The Thing About Mechanical Vibration Isolation…” Jay Luong states “In general, vibrations are just bad for audio. Better dampening gets us to a steady state quicker. This is especially the case for turntables.
But what if these components weren’t even voiced or designed with a specific type of isolation – or none at all? Unless the speaker and electronics designers tell us themselves, there’s no way to know. I know for a fact some don’t use any isolation at all while designing their products. So does that mean we’re mucking with the sound when we throw foam balls under them?”
Though it is a given that everything in the audio system after the DSD (preamps, interconnects, amps, speaker cables, and speakers) will affect the Snowmass voicing, I still would like to know about the DSD footers and platform used during the voicing of Snowmass (1) to avoid mucking up the designer’s intended Snowmass voicing with other footers and (2) to maybe reproduce Ted Smith’s intended stunning Snowmass voicing.
Any information from firmware virtuoso Ted Smith and team regarding footers and platform used to voice Snowmass would be greatly appreciated.
