The WELLFLOAT soundboard is a truly innovative support system, designed and engineered in Japan, to improve Hi-Fi sound quality for all music lovers and audiophiles.
Adding WELLFLOAT to a system will reveal the potential performance levels of almost any type of HiFi equipment.
Our founders background in live classical music led us to ask the question, in general why does it seem so difficult to achieve the best performance from our Hi-Fi systems?
The main reason, we believe, is that a Hi-Fi system is required to process two contradictory elements – it must retain all the vibration for musical energy while simultaneously suppressing all the negative vibration unrelated to music. Simply suppressing all vibration also means limiting the most important musical energy, thus making the resulting playback sound boring. In order to resolve this issue, we started focusing on the “law of conservation of momentum”.
After extensive R&D work in our Osaka facility, we’ve succeeded in installing within our boards a uniquely developed mechanism featuring a “cantilever and hanging pendulum”. This arrangement converts the vibration coming from multiple directions, restricting it solely to a horizontal vibration. Our smart mechanism therefore achieves a stress-free, no-distortion sound while keeping all the positive energy related to accurate musical reproduction.
We are now delighted to be introducing this innovative system to a worldwide customer base.
For over 10 years WELLFLOAT has grown and evolved in Japan, a country that has many earthquakes every year. In that time WELLFLOAT products have been adopted and used as the most reliable tool in the listening rooms of a number of recording studios, a testing environment universally accepted as the place where those who require the best sound quality, cannot compromise. Having succeeded in this harshest of audio environments we made the technology available for use in the home.
As part of our ongoing development program for home Hi-Fi applications we have launched the latest version of our board that features “Full-con mech” inside, giving a maximum support weight of 300kg (661lbs), undoubtedly sufficient for practically any type of high end HiFi equipment currently available on the market.
The “Full-con mech” evolution was originally created as “WELLFLOAT for piano” specifically requested to support the weight of a full concert grand piano in concert halls, normally weighing more than 500kg.
For the majority of the currently available WELLFLOAT models, we can also produce a “custom version”. As a customer you can specify size, colours, finishes, shapes and even material, allowing you to perfectly match to any type of device and room. Please feel free to speak to our approved retailers or distributors for more information about this truly bespoke service.
The WELLFLOAT R&D team is continually working on new ideas and products, in particular the “WELLFLOAT RACK”.
