Shun Mook Diamond Resonator Feet
Shun Mook Diamond Resonator Component Feet
Shun Mook's Diamond Resonators are a totally new approach to "Mechanical Grounding". This patented design (U.S. Patent No. D364168) contains a large volume of ebony reservoir for filtering distortions while a natural diamond allows for the instantaneous escape of unwanted vibrations. The resonating properties of this ebony, when excited by the electromechanical energy, will enhance the musical quality of its audio reproduction. Diamond Resonators come in 4 different sizes and follow all the same principals.
Mini Diamond Resonators
Also called Original Diamond Resonator. This is the first diamond tipped ebony feet Shun Mook made. Size is 1.8" diameter x 1.25" height, studded with a 1/10 carat phono point diamond in a steel pin. First developed in 1989 for Shun Mook's own use and later discovered that the diamond size and ebony wood volume can increase the performance of the mechanical grounding. The resonators are sold in matched sets of three and are individually tuned for its optimum performance. Price is $500 for a set/3.
Super Diamond Resonators
This 3" diameter x 1.75" height body is a smaller version of the Ultra Diamond Resonator with an 1/8 carat natural diamond phono point mounted on a steel shank. This more economical version is mainly used under lightweight Preamps, DAC, CD Transports of 35 lbs. or less. The resonators are sold in matched sets of three and are individually tuned for its optimum performance. Price is $900 for a set/3.
Ultra Diamond Resonators
This 3.75" to 4" diameter x 1.75" height body is made with from black African ebony with a 3/8" diameter shank and tipped with an 1/4 carat natural diamond. These matched sets are recommended for all Pre-amp, Power amps, Power Conditioner and Turntables especially the very heavy units weight up to 200 lbs, Using these will instantly expand the sound staging and increased separation, Tonal balance of the music will be much richer and hence a major step of improvement. Price is $1400 for a set/3.
Giant Diamond Resonators
With a 5" to 5.25" diameter x 2.25" high body which holds three times the volume of ebony reservoir then the Ultra Diamond Resonators, this is truly the ultimate enhancement device of your electronic the 1/2" diameter steel shank carries a half-carat natural diamond point. Each time this is tested under any electromechanical equipment the improvement leaps several letter grades for the entire Hi Fi system and brings fidelity to new heights. At present due to the difficult of obtaining large pieces of ebony this is only produced in very limited quantities. Price is $2400 for a set/3.
For the last years Shun Mook Acoustics Inc. has introduced a new concept and a new approach to usage of material in the control of acoustic resonance in High Fidelity. There is no real magic about Shun Mook's products. They are all based on simple high school physics - "Sympathetic Resonance". As all elements in this universe will resonate when like pattern energy is generated from another material. Just as in a physics experiment when you excite a metal tuning fork of say the "A" frequency and hold it close to another static "A" tuning fork. The result is that the second tuning fork will also get excited because same frequency energy is transferred through the air to cause the vibration. Thus when the musical energy produced by any Hi Fi system will excite to different degree of all materials within the space covered by the acoustic spectrum. Different materials will have a positive or negative effect on each other influencing the final music re-production. The secret is to control and tame such resonance to the advantage of the system.
It is commonly known that many musical instruments use Mpingo and other ebony wood to create the most natural musical tones and harmonics. Just like the clarinet, the violin and other wind and string instruments uses the ebony as the essential component to generate the sound. With many years of research and development Shun Mook has designed and brought forth several revolutionary devices in the technique of electronic audio enhancement.
