What is an audio accessory? An overview and detailed explanation of products [Part 2]

   Last Modified:    Published: 2021/06

Next, we will introduce some record accessories while touching on digital and analog sound sources.

Differences between digital and analog sound sources

Digital sound sources have a cut frequency band.

Certain frequency bands are cut on the basis that they cannot be heard by human ears. However, nowadays, it is thought that these frequency bands may actually contribute to the depth of sound, creating a stronger impression on the listener.
Therefore, even the digital world has begun to head towards high-quality playback by making the digitization of the original high-resolution sound source more detailed.
In analog records, however, the original sound is faithfully recorded in the first place.
In recent years, many enthusiasts are trying to bring out that sound by using a variety of techniques to recreate the original sound from analog records.

What these enthusiasts are paying attention to are audio accessories.

What audio accessory products are available?

Some of the audio accessory products are as follows:

・Audio insulator
・Phono cartridge spacer
・Disc stabilizer
・Speaker stand
・Audio rack

Audio insulator

Audio insulators are sandwiched between the bottom of the sound equipment and the contact surface. 

Phono cartridge spacer

The Phono cartridge spacer adjusts the total weight and height of the needle tip when mounted on the headshell.

Disc stabilizer

Disc stabilizers hold the record, preventing slippage and keeping it stable.

Speaker stand

The speaker stand is a pedestal designed to allow you to enjoy the original sound quality of the speaker.

Using a stand lifts the speaker and reduces the effect of the surroundings on the sound, greatly improving the sound quality.

Audio rack

An audio rack is a dedicated shelf for audio equipment.
Audio-specific racks have a vibration-resistant structure and specialized feet that make wiring easier to route.
As you can see, there are a variety of audio accessories.

ORSONIC audio accessories

Orsonic products

Various audio manufacturers in Japan and abroad produce audio accessories. Orbray Co. provides audio accessories under our ORSONIC brand.

At Orbray, we have designed our audio accessories in a completely new way compared to conventional approaches.

Careful selection of materials

We use sapphire, the next hardest material after diamond, as our material of choice.
Sapphire has a higher specific gravity and is harder and heavier than quartz, which is often used for high-end record players and precision measuring instruments.
Single-crystal sapphire has a corundum-type structure (approximately hexagonal), and is a material with excellent mechanical, thermal, and optical properties, and high chemical stability. For the first time, it has been adopted for audio accessories.

Advanced processing techniques

There is a technique to precisely processing a hard and strong material like sapphire.
Thanks to sophisticated polishing techniques used on their surface, our accessories can be installed so that they stick to the contact surface of the speaker or amplifier.
We finalized the material and shape of our accessories based on listening trials with audio experts. We believe that these gemstone accessories can bring new excitement to everyone in the audio world.
Try it out and hear the difference!


Audio accessories help realize high-quality sound by thoroughly eliminating unwanted noise.

Our ORSONIC products are perfect for audiophiles trying to achieve this goal.
