Shunyata Research's SSF (Stainless Steel Feet) provide a significant upgrade in performance for all HYDRA Power Distributors. It is well known that Hydra performance can be improved by placing them on a shelf or dedicated amplifier stand and by using high-performance cones under them. While these tweaks are beneficial, they can be quite costly. We developed the SSF to optimize Hydra performance without the high cost of accessories.
The SSF feet are milled from solid blocks of high-grade stainless steel. They are two inches tall, which raises a Hydra chassis above the thickest carpeting. This makes it possible to get great performance from your Hydra without the need to place it on a dedicated shelf or amplifier stand. The stainless steel discs, included in the package, protect expensive shelving and hardwood floors from scratches. Tests have shown that the stainless discs may also be beneficial when used on carpeting. Have your customers try it both ways.
The SSF's are easy for the dealer or customer to install. They are threaded specifically for the Hydra and replace the rubber isolation feet that come standard on most Hydras. The SSF feet are HIGHLY recommended for Hydra Cyclops and Hydra-α Model-2 since these products are likely to be placed on the floor.
