Following on from its award-winning ISO-PUCK and ISO Stands, IsoAcoustics has introduced the ISO-PUCK mini, another new approach to speaker isolation in the shape of a set of speaker stands.
Designed for smaller speakers and studio monitors, ISO-PUCK mini is said to eliminate vibrations to improve the clarity and focus of speakers and monitors both in the studio and at home. Sitting between the speaker or monitor and the supporting surface, the ISO-PUCK mini features an upper flange suction cup that adheres to the underside of the speaker or monitor cabinet and a lower isolator that anchors to the supporting surface.
By decoupling the speaker from the surface and damping the transfer of energy between the two with its patented isolators, the ISO-PUCK mini is designed to reduce smearing, while improving stereo imaging and sound clarity. It can be used on any surface, including meter bridges, floor stands, consoles, desktops, millwork, or soffit mounts.
The lightweight, low-profile design makes the ISO-PUCK mini portable for the travelling producer or sound engineer. Each puck measures only 1.7-inches (44mm) across and 0.9-inches (24mm) in height, but with a weight cap of 6 lbs (2.75kg) and taking only three to fully isolate a speaker up to 18 lbs (8.25kg) in weight. More pucks can be used in the case of heavier speakers.
The IsoAcoustics ISO-PUCK mini will be available in the UK and US from July 2019, with a pack of eight priced at £99.99/$99.99.
