The IsoAcoustics ISO-L8R130 studio monitor stands are a must for anyone who wants to get the best sound out of their smaller studio monitors, bookshelf and desktop speakers. Like its predecessor models, the ISO-L8R130 is designed to improve the performance and clarity of any speaker system, and features the company's patented ‘floating’ architecture for audio image stabilizing.
Designed to accommodate monitors with widths of at least 5 inches and weights of up to 20 lbs., the ISO-L8R130 stand measures 5.1 inches wide and 6 inches deep and can be configured to either 2.5 inches or 8 inches in height with adjustor inserts that provide up to 14 variations of height and tilt adjustments. These variations of height and tilt adjustment allow any speaker to be set up in the position for the optimal sound quality.
Whether mixing a new project or listening to your favorite music, you'll hear tighter bass and more openness throughout the entire frequency range. With a stronger phantom image, each instrument will have a cleaner three-dimensional sound in the mix.
The isolation and response of the audio stand is a function of the isolator's shape and its volume and durometer (hardness and density). Its opening, internal taper and concave end (void) result in a compliant element to contain the supporting tubes or rods. This allows the supporting tubes to move fore and aft, while resisting lateral and secondary movements and oscillations. As the speaker cone moves forward, the speaker enclosure tends to move back, as predicted by Newton's third law of reciprocating motion. Transducers, enclosure and upper stand section therefore move in a direction sympathetic to the sound source.
