Agora Acoustics MagicHexa™ test review

Magical feet?

Ted of Agora Acoustics ensured me, that I have to try MagicHexa™. When they came in to Mono & Stereo HQ's I didn't wait for to long and started to use them on daily base with my system components.

Different approach

Agora Acoustics MagicHexa™are for sure completely different from feet that we're used to implement for a system components decoupling and dealing with resonance absorption and dispersion.

Agora Acoustics MagicHexa™ are specifically designed and optimized visco-elastic polymers that combines shock absorption, vibration isolation and vibration damping characteristics to create the ideal acoustic damper and absorber. Specially formulated aerodynamic honeycomb configuration displays 1,000 times higher damping coefficient than metal, thus reducing the transmission of vibration energies into whatever surface the component is sitting on.

In use

I tried MagicHexa™in different setups. From CD players, DAC's etc. Even under my heavy turntable Agora Acoustics performed noticeable better. My late night listening notes repeatedly highlighted few of attributes; clarity, focus, tightness and energy flow. All consequently lift up the musical part of performance.

Micro vibrations 

Whatever turn we make in high-end audio, we're always come back to dealing with some sort of micro resonances, vibrations and energy transfer. We cannot be in total absence of those, but we're bound to the endless quest of their "virtual" absence. In some way or another all the active parts in any given components ewoke some sort of vibration. As with other filed of science, micro vibrations cause a collateral damage to the sound. Sometimes on micro level, sometimes on the larger scale.  I've written to many times how audiophiles are too often on a crusade urge of trying to simplify the importance of damping and passive-active dealings with vibrations-resonances. Even at entry level of high-end one can experience the difference when experimenting with different feet. Agora Acoustics MagicHexa™ offers a great lenses for exploration of endless audio horizon.


Agora Acoustics MagicHexa™are a cost effective solution and elaborated feet design , that spreads their  appeal across vast array of components. They are easy to implement and ready to be experimented with instantly. I tried to mix MagicHexa™with different materials for the dealings with resonaces. It doesn't matter if combined with MDF, graphite, solid wood, birch plywood, plexi etc. MagicHexa™impact is audible and potent.

Dealing with the resonances and micro vibrations in the audio systems plays an important part of "tuning." Agora Acoustics MagicHexa™are great tools for those who just started to understand the workings of refine high-end audio systems and for seasoned audiophiles in ultimate quest for that perfect sound reproduction. I strongly suggest you try them with all of your components and more importantly to experiment in a combination with different materials or audio shelves.

MagicHexa™opens up a vast possibility to implement. For those restless minds (myself included) this is a great audiophile "gadget" to own.

Company product info:

● MagicHexa™ improves your audio and visual system's performance by eliminating vibrations on micro and macro levels. Just place them underneath your hi-fi and home theater gear. You will experience dramatically increased transparency, dynamic range, imaging and sound stage.
● MagicHexa™ is a very cost-effective solution that eliminates unwanted vibration from wide variety of origin and is especially effective for use in high fidelity audio, visual components even with accessories as like speaker cables, interconnects, AC power conditioners etc.
● Unlike general type of rubber accessories, MagicHexa™ is not affected by temperature, pressure etc. For the combined use with the existing anti-vibration accessories, MagicHexa™ provides sufficient surface. Regardless of existence of built-in component feet that is basically integrated to the components, MagicHexa™ allows the easiest installation. 
● Each MagicHexa™ measures 76mm in diameter and is 23mm tall. They can be stacked on top of each other to increase the height. Micro embossment surface provides non-skid properties.
● The maximum load is 12 kg per isolator. If your component exceeds the weight limit of a set of MagicHexa™, you can easily add additional MagicHexa under a component to increase the weight capacity.
● Weight : 270g/set, Packing : 4pcs/set
