C-PROP
Insulator "C-PROP extend" (patent-pending)

Insulator developed to avoid vibration.

When insulators are categorized into “those which produce vibration themselves and those which accept vibration”, this “C-PROP extend exercises its effect with particular sensitivity to vibrations received from external sources”. The lightness of is resin and its special internal structure have made it possible to propose new previously overlooked uses of insulators.

 

 

 

What is the Vibration Control/
Insulation Mechanism of the "C-PROP extend"?

The C-PROP extend’s mechanism was the result of collaborative research with Professor Kiminobu Nishimura (Kinki University, Faculty of Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering) over four years. It is a completely new innovative resin insulator.

It has a simple one-tier construction, composed of cylindrical cup (receptacles) and long pointy spike.
The “C” in C-PROP extend stands for “conical”.
Both cup and spike use resin. With light body of only 35g, the C-PROP extend performs insulation effect while sharply cutting down on damaging micro-vibration.


Its vibration control and insulation mechanism is extremely sophisticated, including technical knowledge on molecular level.


The special damping fluid absorbs damaging vibrations and eliminates micro-vibration and turbidity of sound which have a particular influence on music reproduction.
Furthermore, the solution penetrates and enters into the resin, simulating the state of floating in water. The services to decrease friction in the contact parts with the system control micro chirp, and bring great effect for the insulation with equipment.


The special damping liquid is a new patent-pending solution called “Sticky” solution. Since a solution which exercises the greatest effect on the physical properties of resin does not exist as an elementary substance, after many experiments, we succeeded in developing a special compound liquid of pure water and high-polymer materials. The liquid is characterized by a high degree of transparency, stickiness like gummy-candy, and springiness.


In case of oil or water, when it is rotated, it spins in the direction of the rotation; however, this “special sticky solution” hangs on, turning in the opposite direction, and return as though it is pulled.


Unlike water or oil, this mysterious substance, - or “spring solution”, as we may well call it plays the roles of both absorbing damaging vibrations and extinguishing the micro-vibrations and turbidity of sound which give a particular influence on music reproduction.


Due to this special internal structure, it cuts down on damaging vibrations as well as it makes it more difficult to receive impact of external vibrations. As a result, countermeasures for received vibration which has been previously overlooked are now possible.  

 

 

 

Optimize the Potential Capacity of the System
by Combining the C-PROP with the D-PROP

The C-PROP extend is “39 mm in diameter and 32 mm in height”. As a matter of fact, it’s the same size as the D-PROP extend. We did not just make them the same size; we also planned to produce a synergistic “D x C” effect by combining the C-PROP extend with the D-PROP extend.
In audio, there are some areas that just cannot be handled with the one item. By using the characteristics of the C-PROP extend and the D-PROP extend in accordance with the purposes to cover those areas by two items of different materials, we make it possible to control vibrations in accordance with the characteristics of each device.

 

Characteristics of the C-PROP extend

More effective with received vibrations from external sources than with self-generated vibrations.
Appropriate in areas with little vibration.
Effective for equipment without vibrating body or rotary mechanisms and in places where influence from vibration is undesirable.

 

Characteristics of the D-PROP extend

Very effective for equipment which produces its own vibrations. Exercises its true potential in areas of great vibration.
Has strong vibration damping effects in players with rotary mechanisms and the power supply sections of separate equipment with vibrating body.

KRYNA proposes to pull out latent abilities that cannot be obtained by just one item.

 

 

 

We developed the C-PROP Extend Model
that has incorporated a developed V-cut technology!

By improving the vibration characteristics of the bottom, we can mitigate the vibration to be transmitted to spike (return of vibration).


By reducing unnecessary vibration that is transmitted to the spike that is directly contacting audio device, we can create an environment where the system can fully demonstrate its original capacity without interference by vibrating energy from external sources.

By upgrading the vibration insulation capacity of the C-PROP which has resin and sticky liquid containment structure, we can expand the scale of holographic sound field such in terms of depth, width and height.  

 

 

 

By using V-cut structure in the bottom, the bottom of the C-PROP extend has uneven thickness. As a result, the pea of vibration (resonance) is less likely to occur. Less vibration peaks of cup means the device becomes stronger against vibration from external sources. Thus, the C-PROP extend will make it easier to draw the original performance of equipment.

 

 

 

I want to use the C-PROP extend here!

While the method of using both C-PROP extend and D-PROP extend together is groundbreaking, the C-PROP extend’s effect by itself is dramatic. It displays its effect particularly well with analog-related equipment and Pre Amp meant to handle faint signals.

The C-PROP extend and D-PROP extend are separately sold in sets of three and four. In addition, in order to fit any combination, both types are sold as a single unit.
For example, it is possible to order any combination to fit your own system, such as “two D-PROP extends and one C-PROP extend”, or “one D-PROP extend and two C-PROP extends”.


Here are some examples of recommended uses for both types.

 

<Examples of Suggested Usages>

(A) Example of using the C-PROP extend alone.

 

1. Preamp

When three C-PROP extends are used in separate-type Preamps with separate power supplies, spatial reproducibility is heightened astonishingly.



2. Analogue MC Trans

The effect of the C-PROP extend is especially great in MC Trances without power supplies. You may actually feel the heightened signal-to-noise ratio and transparency on your skin. In this case, the D-PROP extend is optimal for the turntable.

 

 

(B) Example of combined use of the C-PROP extend and the D-PROP extend


1. CD/SACD Player (e.g. ESOTERIC SZ-1)

Since the mechanical section is in the front center and the power supply is on the left, it is better to set one D-PROP extend under the power supply and mechanical sections, and put two C-PROP extends in the rear. The sound spreads and the sound quality feels more natural.

2. Separate-type Preamp (e.g. Nuforce P-9)

This is a half-size, thin Preamp. In Nuforce P-9, the power supply/control section and the analog Preamp sections are independent. We obtained a supreme effect by setting a D-PROP extend in the power supply/control section which is the energy source and setting a C-PROP extend in the Preamp section which has faint analog signals. You will be surprised by the feeling of plunging speed as a high-end equipment and the three-dimensional sound field.

3. Compact Desk-top Amp (e.g. Nuforce Icon)

The Icon is a postcard-sized super-small pre-main Amp. Here, the Icon side of the main body accepted the C-PROP extend. You can experience spatial expression and a spontaneous sound that surpasses its size.

When using the C-PROP extend and D-PROP extend together, be careful for the location of mechanical section and power supplies and use them according to your needs.



I want to use the C-PROP mini extend here!

While the method of using both C-PROP mini extend and D-PROP mini extend together is groundbreaking, the C-PROP mini extend’s effect by itself is also dramatic. It displays its effect particularly well with analog-related equipment and Preamp meant to handle faint signals.

The C-PROP mini extend and D-PROP mini extend are sold separately in sets of three and four. In addition, in order to fit any combination, both types are sold as a single unit.
For example, it is possible to order any combination to fit your own system, such as “two D-PROP mini extends and one C-PROP mini extend”, or “one D-PROP mini extend and two C-PROP mini extends”.


Here are some examples of recommended uses for both kinds.



<Examples of Suggested Usages>

(A) Example of using the C-PROP mini extend alone.

1. ipod dock, transport

For ipod dock, transport, etc. without power supplies, the C-PROP mini extend will dramatically enhance resolution and provide clear and open sound. In this case, the most suitable AC adapter is the D-PROP mini extend.
