Bordeaux: Eliminates parasitic vibrations, and
providing greater sound clarity and focus. The Bordeauxs are ideal for heavier
components including monoblocks, Speakers, Power Conditioners, and Turntables.
Made of machined stainless steel, the Bordeauxs have a low-profile design to
minimize any increase in height.
Each Bordeaux will hold up to 32lbs (14.5kg) and have a
coloured ring on the bottom isolator that denotes the model and weight
capacity. The OREA series are packaged individually to allow greater
flexibility when determining the number of units to use. We recommend a minimum
of 3 units under each component, depending on weight.
The upper flange of the OREA’s are designed to provide a
suction cup like effect and adhere to the underside of the component, while the
lower flange adheres to the supporting surface. All the energy is managed
within the core of the OREA’s, which are tuned to work within specific weight
ranges. This results in greater sound clarity and a more open soundstage
providing authentic, three-dimensional sound.
The existing feet on an audio component may connect well and
fit nicely around the perimeter of the Indigo. Alternatively, you may get
better performance by either removing the feet entirely or placing the Indigo
around the existing feet to have them connect directly to the chassis or base
of the component.
The weight capacity for a single OREA Bordeaux isolator is
32 pounds (14.5 KG). The OREA’s are designed to be used in multiples to match
the weight of the component or speaker. The total weight capacity is calculated
Total Weight Capacity = [Weight cap. per isolator] x [Qty of
The total weight capacity for the OREA Bordeaux is summarized
in the table below:
It is common to use 3 or 4 OREA isolators for each component
or speaker, but keep in mind that it is most important to stay within the
weight capacity of the OREA isolator.
The weight distribution of the component can also be taken
into account. If for example the component is heaviest at the back, then it is
common to use 3 isolators with 2 positioned at the back corners and 1
The weight capacity of the OREA isolators are
based on the performance curves which are illustrated in the char below:
