You’re probably familiar with IsoAcoustics’ highly effective line of monitor isolation stands that seem to bring out the best from any speaker. At NAMM 2017, IsoAcoustics released the all-new Iso-Puck — the same concept as the bigger stands, yet in a low-profile, flexible, scalable version. The little puck-like discs are placed under your speaker to isolate them from the surface they’re sitting on.
An Iso-Puck is pretty small — just 3cm tall and 6cm in diameter. Its round shape makes positioning a bit easier than with stands, especially on varied surfaces like the narrow space on top of a console meter bridge. Not to mention Iso-Puck’s size and shape lends itself to a bunch of other employments, like propping up your laptop or keeping a hot dish off the wooden dinner table.
The multipart isolation construction of the Iso-Puck lets it move to isolate and manage the energy in line with the same isolation concepts employed in other IsoAcoustics products. The Pucks feature a flange suction cup on the top to hold tight to the speaker surface, as well as a bottom suction cup flange for the supporting surface. Energy is transferred to the core of the multipart isolator in between which resists lateral movement and offers better isolation.
