With the new Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet MC Edition, the Italian specialist Bassocintinuo Audio Systems S.r.l. is once again expanding its range of products in the so-called Bassocontinuo UltraFeet Enhanced Isolation System, i.e. the product line that the Italians offer as an optimal solution for the installation of electronic components and record players. This special new version is aimed at hi-fi enthusiasts who own solutions from the US high-end hi-fi manufacturer McIntosh Laboratory Inc.
Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet – Special Stands
Bassocintinuo Audio Systems S.r.l. is known as a specialist for first-class rack systems, following a remarkable strategy of its own. The Italians can boast that every solution they develop and offer in this regard is subjected to extensive independent tests to determine its effectiveness.
The Bergamo-based company collaborates with the Politecnico di Milano University, which specialises in vibration testing for the automotive and aerospace industries.
This procedure is not only used for the rack systems, but also for the damping feet of the Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet Series developed by Bassocintinuo Audio Systems S.r.l..
Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet MC Edition – For solutions from McIntosh Laboratory Inc.
Bassocintinuo Audio Systems S.r.l. can, apart from the technical side just mentioned, also boast of producing solutions with a maximum of individualisation. For example, you can purchase a wide variety of rack systems in a wide variety of designs; almost everything can be adapted to your own ideas.
For example, Bassocintinuo Audio Systems S.r.l. also offers a special model series in the B by Bassocontinuo range that is designed for the electronic components of McIntosh Laboratory Inc, the so-called MC Edition. Even if it is not specifically stated for marketing reasons, MC Edition clearly stands for McIntosh Laboratory Inc. The rack systems, which are hand-covered with the finest leather, have stitching in the typical blue of McIntosh Laboratory Inc.
The same offer is now being made in the Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet range, with the new Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet MC Edition.
A complete series
According to the Italian specialist, the Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet MC Edition is not a single product, but rather a complete series consisting of four products that are completely dedicated to electronics from McIntosh Laboratory Inc.
Three sizes, namely Small, Medium and Large, corresponding to the dimensions of the electronics, and another one specifically designed for the turntable family of McIntosh Laboratory Inc. are available here.
Equipped with inch threads for the electronics and metric threads for the turntables, the Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet MC Edition feet are designed to match the original feet of the various components and turntables from the entire Mcintosh catalogue from the small McIntosh MC275 to the large McIntosh MC901, according to Bassocintinuo Audio Systems S.r.l..
Thanks to its special mechanical properties, the new Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet MC Edition offer very special advantages. First and foremost, a special composition with rubber-like materials inside is supposed to ensure that vibrations are converted into heat and thus ultimately eliminated. The manufacturer claims that the response is linear, but that the damping is particularly effective in the lower frequency range.
Acceleration tests should clearly show how replacing the original feet with the Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet MC Edition provides the McIntosh Laboratory Inc. components with the best possible conditions to realise their full potential free from disturbing external influences. It is above all the aforementioned damping in the lower frequency range that significantly helps to focus the stage, increase the dynamics and reproduce the signal clearly and precisely.

The new Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet MC Edition should be available in specialist shops these days. The manufacturer indicates the prices as follows: Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet MC Edition Small € 269,-, Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet MC Edition Medium € 299,- and Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet MC Edition Large € 329,-.

Getting to the point
There are probably many stands on the market that replace conventional solutions for the optimal placement of hi-fi components and record players. Hardly any manufacturer, however, can prove their effectiveness as well as the Italian company Bassocintinuo Audio Systems S.r.l., through such meticulous measurements by an independent body. Their Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet are now being supplemented by a further variant, namely the Bassocontinuo Ultra Feet MC Edition. These are specially designed for hi-fi components and record players of the McIntosh Laboratory Inc. brand.
