MOON AUDIO’s Zero Gravity Magnetic Levitation Audio Shelf

By Andrew Liszewski

Are you worried that vibrations in your sound system are affecting your listening experience? Well worry no more as MOON AUDIO has managed to find the secret to anti-gravity. That’s right, a technological breakthrough that would absolutely change the world is first being used on a floating shelf designed to reduce or eliminate vibrations. So how does it really work?

By utilizing the latest advancements in magnetic technology we have created a shelf that suspends equipment in the air supported by the powerful opposing forces of magnetism and the magnetic fields have been found to have no interference with the components on the stands.

Wait a minute! So all this time the secret to anti-gravity has been magnets? Why didn’t anybody tell me?!? And it finally makes sense why this shelf costs $500, it is cutting edge technology after all! And now I’m off to harvest all the magnetic gold that’s been stuck to my fridge all these years.

    Looks like all you need is a few rare earth magnets and something to make the platforms out of. I bet I can build it for $499.99.

    The only drawback is if someone bumped into it. Yea, you know what's going to happen…..

    This is actually very smart. I have my speaker on the styrofoam box it was sold in to eliminate vibration.

  • Jessicat

    I was thinking the same thing mcman, one little bump and send that baby into a wall. Because those magnets wouldn't hold it there. It should have side bars preventing moving.

  • gfairchild

    Notice the two guide rods at the half way point on each side. That keeps the top from sliding off/away by limiting the movement to the vertical axis only.

  • SubHero

    This can be done better a lot better actually, without the stupid guide rods which beat the purpose of the shelf. Each magnetic foot needs to be an 8 magnet configuration where 4 magnets on the bottom form a concave bed and the top 4 a convex counterpart (or other way around) this would form a naturally self stabilizing magnetic cushion.

  • gfairchild

    True, unless the guide rods are using magnetic bearings it would allow vibrations to still transfer – defeating the entire purpose.

    Interesting idea about using concave/convex shaping on the pillars. I'm starting to want to try and make my own just for the fun of it.
