ISOACOUSTICS DELOS ISOLATION PLATFORM COMING SOON
The IsoAcoustics DELOS is explicitly designed to isolate turntables and electronic components from interference caused by external vibrations and resonances. DELOS? Because that’s the name of the floating island in Greek mythology.
The platforms consist of IsoAcoustics' patented isolation technology with a solid butcher block to provide a stable platform with a low noise floor. The mass of the dense maple wood and the integrated IsoAcoustics isolators combine to eliminate any interference from external and structural vibrations.
The promised result is a superior audio performance with greater clarity and detail. When we checked out the DELOS at the Munich Show, it looked well-made, and we had no complaints sound-wise.
The DELOS will be available in a smaller 18-inch x 15-inch (WxD) size and a larger 22-inch x 16-inch (WxD) size. Both sizes are available in 1 ¾-inch (45mm) and 3-inch (76mm) thickness. The smaller size has a maximum weight capacity of 65 lbs (29.5 kg) and 55 lbs (24.9 kg) for the 1 ¾-inch (45mm) and 3-inch (75mm) models respectively.
The larger size DELOS has an extra row of integrated isolators to provide a higher weight capacity at 100 lbs (45.4 kg) for the 1 ¾-inch (45mm) thick model and 90 lbs (40.8 kg) for 3-inch (75mm) the model. The thicker 3-inch (75mm) models provide additional mass and give best results with weightier turntables and components.
IsoAcoustics’ CEO Dave Morrison told StereoNET:
Turntables, for example, are extremely sensitive to vibrations. The stylus navigating the tiny variations in the vinyl’s grooves is a delicate process that is easily interrupted by vibrations. We found the most effective solution to diminish the effects of external vibrations was integrating our isolators into a butcher block to combine mass with our patented isolation technology and together, we discovered great synergy.
The IsoAcoustics DELOS series will be available from August 2019 - local pricing has not yet been confirmed.
