Onix MSP-1 Magnetic Suspension Platform For Audio Gear


By David Ponce

Looks like we’re covering a fair bit of audio equipment round here. In this case, we have us a platform for your audio equipment that happens to float on a magnetic field. This is supposed to eliminate vibrations that might otherwise interfere with your high-priced amp or $23,000 CD player.

The MSP-1 features a 1″ thick MDF gloss black shelf that is suspended by five adjustable neodymium magnetic ‘pods’ (or footers if you like). This allows you to *float* up to 130lbs of equipment magnetically; removing nasty vibrations from being transferred to your equipment from the floor or shelf it is currently on. We all know how sensitive our electronic gear is to vibrations

And the kicker is, it’s not that expensive, at $210.

    How strong is the magnetic field? I mean, if you hooked up your iPod or your reel-to-reel, would you suddenly find yourself listening to silence?

    im thinking that you wouldnt be able to use this with any hard drive based player especially since they can “levitate 130 pounds” i would say thats powerful enough to erase a hard drive though i could be wrong

    Given the narrow use of the fields, and the expense of neodymium magnets, odds are they would be fine as long as you don’t place the magnetic media directly next to the magnets. I’m talking within 6 inches. Neodymium produces very high Gauss strength, but field penetration and reach are a different matter determined by the shape and mass of material.
