Black Ravioli Big Foot

Entirely squishy, the Big Foot pads work somewhat differently than the Strange Attractors, but made a huge difference for the better underneath almost every vacuum tube component we placed them. Backgrounds became darker, offering more low level resolution in the process.

The more resolving your system, the greater your chance of your hearing a bigger change in sound with the Raviolis – a highly worthwhile investigation.

I believe that the use of Black Raviolis will enhance all (high-end) systems with a more relaxed musical performance, adding additional spaciousness, better-defined imagery and focus.

This is pasta to behold and a real effective way to improve everything audio — and don’t forget BRs also work for video.

These are marvels at releasing the true potential of one’s system. I feel like I am listening to a new system… one that is WAY better at what I want in every respect.

They just make the sound… sound right.

Unlike most equipment which needs a break-in period to hear their properties, the Big Feet showed their qualities immediately.

It wasn’t the so-called removal of veils heard with many other tweaks, but a tightening of the image such that individual instruments and voices became more focused, and the soundstage took on more feeling of space.

I’ve tried innumerable feet, supports, racks, etc., over the years to control ground and airborne vibration, and probably have close to 100 different feet in a container in the basement. None of them come close to what these do to control chassis vibration.

The Black Raviolis will be a revelation to all those who truly think their system doesn’t need improving. The BRs aren’t a tweak that modifies or mutates the sound of a system so they won’t improve an inadequately performing set-up. Rather, they are to be used to heighten the performance of a system that has been carefully assembled and is already performing well. The result will be gratifying to the demanding, experienced listener, as the Raviolis reveal the potential of the wonderful world of high-end audio.

The Black Raviolis are simply one of the greatest tweaks I have run across in over two decades of reviewing.

The Black Raviolis are rather special in how they impart on the music a great sense of ease and natural ‘flow’… nothing is rushed, nothing is spot lit…

The Black Raviolis do more to remove issues or problems that obscure the music than to add or push anything onto the music in the sense of an increase in clarity or presence.

The Raviolis will draw you in for a nice relaxing musical time with your music of choice.
