Provides extraordinary levels of isolation for high fidelity audio components and turntables.
About Orea Series
OREA Series: Eliminates parasitic vibrations and provides greater sound clarity and focus. The OREA’s are ideal for electronic components including Amplifiers, DAC’s, CD Players, Speakers, and Turntables. Made of machined stainless steel, these isolators have a low-profile design to minimize any increase in height.
Each OREA model is designed with a different weight capacity. They each 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.
Greater sound clarity
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.
Works with or without feet
The existing feet on an audio component may connect well and fit nicely around the perimeter of the OREA isolator. Alternatively, you may get better performance by either removing the feet entirely or placing the OREA’s beside the existing feet to have them connect directly to the chassis or base of the component.
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 as follows:
Total Weight Capacity = [Weight cap. per isolator] x [Qty of Isolators]

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 positioned front/center.
Awards + Reviews
“The Gaias and Oreas have already enhanced the systems of more than one Stereophile writer and have reminded us of the pleasures of recommending well-designed, well-made, fairly priced products.”
Product of the Year WINNER 2019
"Pound for pound, OREA is among the best value for money upgrades that can be made to any hifi system.”
Best Hi-Fi Component 2019
“I caught myself wide-eyed with joy on more than a few occasions as I heard nuances in tracks I’ve listened to for years but never noticed before.”
Editor’s Choice Award Winner
Each year, The Absolute Sound’s staff choose components that truly stand out from the competition. This selective list is known as the Golden Ear Awards.
The Absolute Sound
Golden Ear Award 2020
“I imagined I might hear a bit of a difference between my plinth's original feet and the IsoAcoustics pucks. But the difference I heard was beyond my expectations.”
Recommended Components 2021
“…it seemed to me there was less noise mixed in with the fundamentals and overtones: notes were clearer, instrumental sounds closer to the way they sound in real life.”
Recommended Components 2018
“…I think the sound quality get´s better to such an extent, that I think there's very few upgrades out there to match the Orea´s within their price range. If any, that would be acoustic treatment of the room...”
“Once again, I was astounded by the difference in sound quality with the IsoAcoustics’ isolation in place. The first thing I noticed was a tightening of the bass, followed by a general increase in clarity.”
"With the IsoAcoustics OREAs, the mandolin seemed notably louder, especially in the opening measures, where it's the only instrument being played, and had more body and an altogether richer timbral character.”
“They offer fantastic isolation support and vibration control to a huge amount of equipment and applications at a price that is simply unheard of in this somewhat overpriced industry.”
“The nature of the sonic enhancements from the Orea Indigos increase focus, precision and an essential tonal realism while providing important frequency discipline that results in an excellent sonic response. Frankly, the more feet you buy, the better your hi-fi will sound.”
The Audiophile Man
“The IsoAcoustics isolator pods are easily recommendable. Slip some under your gear, and the audible results are both obvious and worthwhile.”
“...the sound acquired another measure of clarity and transparency: the result was similar to the effect of putting GAIAs under my speakers…”
“The texture and density of the low frequency, the sense of space of the sound field have been improved again, and the balance of the entire sound field stage has been upgraded…”
