Better Balls! FREE Bearing Upgrade with purchase of Symposium Acoustic's RollerBlock Jr.

During the month of December, exclusively for customers of The Cable Company, order any set of 3 or 4 Rollerblock Jr's and receive an upgrade to the Grade 10 bearings at no extra cost.

Symposium Acoustics Rollerblock Jr's are one of the least expensive, most effective devices for removing resonance and distortion from audio components. They can be used effectively with virtually all components - digital sources, preamplifiers, and amplifiers - and can also be used to isolate entire shelves and platforms, turntables, power supplies (including AC "line conditioners") and loudspeakers.

As you can see in the image a set of three (sold in sets of 3 or 4) Rollerblock Jr. consists of of 6 tops and bottoms and 3 center bearings, to make 3 "Double Stacked" isolator/coupler units. Each top and bottom is constructed of black anodized, aircraft alloy aluminum, and has a 1.875" diameter (4.76 cm) and 5/8" (1.58 cm) thickness. These dimensions were carefully chosen to make Rollerblock Jr. easy to use and set up, yet strong enough to withstand the rigors of use under heavier equipment such as large amplifiers and heavy loudspeakers. The special cup interior has been designed so that the top and bottom "sandwich" is stable with the ball inserted in the center, making for easy setup. The bottom and top are flat and suitable for all equipment chassis, as well as flat surfaces and carpeting.

Symposium Acoustics Rollerblock Jr : FREE Bearing Upgrade offer:

Set of 3 with standard bearings: $189 with free upgrade to Grade 10 Tungsten Carbide-Save $60.

Set of 4 with standard bearings: $249 with free upgrade to Grade 10 Tungsten Carbide-Save $80.

What benefit is the Grade 10 Carbide Ball upgrade? Let's get technical.

There are two basic principles involved, which seem inherently contradictory: Isolation and Coupling.

In terms of isolation, the better Grade 10 ball is ground to a higher precision than the standard Grade 25 Chromium Steel ball (which is the ball supplied with the standard Rollerblock Jr. system). The “Grade” of a ball means its precision in terms of sphericity and diameter; grade 25 means “25 parts per million” precision. Grade 10 means “10 parts per million” precision. The Grade 10 is therefore 2.5X more perfectly round.

The precision of the ball is of great importance in a ball bearing isolation device such as the Rollerblock. Tiny perturbations caused by vibration create displacement in the substrate or support surface. As the substrate moves, the ball allows that which is placed above it to stay motionless, since the ball rotates in response. Inertial mass keeps the component more or less stationary, isolating it from vibration. The more perfectly round the ball, the more perfectly uniform its rotation during its response to displacement. When a ball is not round, as it rotates, it’s off-balance, like a tire that is not balanced. The rotational movements are very fast (and tiny), and any imbalance creates additional perturbations or irregularities - that is, if the ball is not perfectly balanced, when it rotates it actually creates new vibration. So, the more perfectly round the ball, the less secondary vibration and distortion it will cause.

The other aspect of the Rollerblock, Coupling, is something that is profoundly influenced by the medium, or conduit, between the component and mechanical ground - whether that mechanical ground is a shelf or a dedicated isolation platform. The better the conductive pathway between the component and the mechanical ground, the better the results are. This is because vibration control isn’t just about isolation, it’s also about “damping,” which is in effect conducting inborn vibration to somewhere else, and thus away from sensitive circuitry or mechanisms. The “carbide” part of tungsten carbide is the aspect which improves mechanical conductivity, like products which use carbon, such as carbon fiber and other forms. So, compared to the standard chromium steel ball, the tungsten carbide ball provides better conductivity to ground.

The two principles combined together are very powerful; the superior, higher Grade 10 precision of the G10 balls gives greater resolution than the G25 chromium balls, improving rendition of “air and space,” sound staging, and inner detailing; and the tungsten carbide construction of the balls gives a better mechanical ground, improving bass, background quietness, authority, and image specificity.

25% Off on the Best-Sounding, Award-Winning Bluetooth Loudspeakers from System Audio - Denmark.

In our July Newsletter - "Hidden Gems In Audio" - we included a two new Bluetooth speaker discoveries from System Audio - Denmark: SA-Saxo 1 ($795/Pair in black or white; now $595 on special!) which offers a super lightweight 4” woofer and a 1” tweeter, while the larger and more full range SA-Saxo 5 ($1295/Pair in black or white; now $975 on special!) offers a super lightweight 5” woofer with a 1” tweeter.

SA-Saxo speakers are sold as a TRUE stereo pair of Bluetooth speakers - not a single speaker like most Bluetooth speaker “systems." Frankly to our audiophile ears, this alone is a pretty big deal.

Now is the perfect time to invest for yourself, or someone you love, in a pair of the SA-Saxo speakers, a great-sounding alternative to the typical desktop, office, bedroom, TV-oriented, dorm or workout room system where a single Bluetooth "soundbar" seems to be the "system" of choice.

Voiced to work best on a shelf near a wall. We consider these the best-sounding of all affordable Bluetooth speaker options available!

For the month of December 2016 you can take advantage of 25% savings. Just place your order using the above links or call into your Cable Company consultant.

For ease of reference here is the text of the referenced article from our July Newsletter.

New speaker discovery from Denmark!
In our constant search for new and exciting products, we have discovered the SA-Saxo active Bluetooth loudspeakers,produced by the award-winning loudspeaker manufacturer, System Audio A/S, established in 1984, by Ole Witthoeft, in Denmark. Ole has designed these two new models of active bookshelf speakers from the ground up.

The SA-Saxo 1 ($795/Pair) offers a super lightweight 4” woofer and a 1” tweeter, while the larger and more full range SA-Saxo 5 ($1295/Pair) offers a super lightweight 5” woofer with a 1” tweeter.

We should point out that the SA-Saxo speakers are sold as a TRUE stereo pair of Bluetooth speakers - not a single speaker solution, like most Bluetooth speaker systems. Frankly from an audiophile perspective, this alone is a pretty big deal sonically.

Both models are powered with built-in amplifiers (2x50Watts) with multiple digital and analog inputs allowing audio connection of external components including TV’s, CD players, gaming consoles, and of course Bluetooth audio streaming. In addition the speakers allow for connecting an optional powered subwoofer. Available in Piano Gloss Black and Piano Gloss White.

The SA-Saxo speakers are a great alternative to the typical desktop, office, bedroom, TV-oriented, dorm or workout room system where a single Bluetooth "soundbar" seems to be the "system" of choice.

But whether in one box or two, how does that Bluetooth-enabled system actually sound? We just came back from the Capitol Audio Fest 2016 where we demoed the SA-Saxo 1 and everyone who listened was impressed-to-amazed by the sound quality.

Why are we so excited about these speakers, besides the great sound from a Bluetooth-enabled speaker of all things?

Let’s take a walk down memory lane...

Do you remember your first stereo? Of course! Driven by a love of music we have all built upon, upgraded and added on to our audio systems. What if we asked a teenager today about their first ‘stereo’? They will then show you a smart phone and a set of earbuds! Let’s face it, the smart phone is here to stay and it’s the main source for music playback for the younger generations (and honestly many of us more mature music lovers use it too).

Saxo speakers introduce a complete audio system with a familiar source - the smart phone. Imagine your daughter or son,walking into their dorm room and their cell phone automatically connects to the speakers. They get to enjoy their favorite music “outside” of their head, and get much better audio quality when watching Netflix movies or YouTube video on their computer or tablet. Volume and source selections are easily controlled with the included system remote control.

It’s almost back to school time, so here is an opportunity to pass the enjoyment of music and movies to the next generation, with a pair of SA-Saxo speakers.
