LessLoss categorize the Bindbreaker as a hard coupler not elastic/springy decoupler. It combats vibrations of minute amplitude to differ from supports with actual springs or squishy viscoelastics like rubber and sorbothane. LessLoss view the latter category effective only at targeting low-frequency vibrations of large amplitude which they claim are irrelevant to audio hardware and only slow down our sound. Bindbreakers are described as directional resonance sinks. Input vibrations won't reflect back whence they came.
According to LessLoss, the Bindbreaker action is twofold. The first involves its hexagonal top's polarization of vibrational modes. Only those at a 90° angle of incidence travel deeper. Acoustic vibrations pass steel far more quickly than wood. That's why wood-on-wood contacts were out and the Bindbreaker's upper cylinder connects to the base via steel bolt. Vibrations that pass through it rapidly migrate into a thick steel underbelly which instantaneously conducts them to a matrix of steel bolts which are tightly embedded in plywood. Any remaining resonances within their own hexagonal resonant cavities are damped by contact with the lowest very hard bog-oak plate. Acoustically highly conductive steel and the damping action of wood collaborate to absorb then dissipate vibrations and not return them.
Nearly all commercial decoupling footers are round. The Bindbreaker's hexagonal shape pursues maximum surface transfer. The wood-steel-wood sandwich might look simple but took LessLoss several years to perfect. The Bindbreaker is straightforward in use and works with components up to 100kg. Intended support kit includes sources, amps, power components and shelves but not loudspeakers. These footers should be put on a surface first, then the component be lowered onto them.
To review the LessLoss Bindbreaker, fidata's HFAS-S10U handled file storage and transport duties, a LampizatOr Pacific or LessLoss Echo's End converted digital to analog, a Kinki Studio EX-M1 or Trilogy 925 integrated handled gain and volume, finally Boenicke Audio W11 SE+ speakers with S3 speaker cable converted electrical into acoustical signal. All components connected via LessLoss C-MARC power cords to a GigaWatt PC-3 SE EVO+ power conditioner which met the wall outlet with a GigaWatt LC-3 EVO cord. Boenicke Audio's IC3 CG interconnect was in play as was iFi audio's full USB stack of micro iUSB3.0, nano iGalvanic3.0 and three Mercury3.0 cables. A headfi rig of Bakoon AMP-13R & HifiMan flagship Susvara planarmagnetic headphones was on duty, too.
