New Gear Review: IsoAcoustics Aperta Speaker Stands

ApertaSMALLIsoAcoustics has the Aperta line of sculpted aluminum acoustic isolation stands designed for medium-sized professional studio monitors and home stereo speakers. Looking more like a modern sculpture piece, the elegant Aperta stands use IsoAcoustics' patented floating design to enhance the sound clarity and transparency of medium-sized monitor speakers by decoupling their vibrating cabinets from external surfaces or the floor.

The new IsoAcoustics Aperta stands feature a unique integrated tilt adjustment with fine gradation markings that enables users to “dial-in” the optimum tilt angle when aiming monitor speakers at the listening position. The Apertas measure 6.1 (W) x 7.5 (D)-inches and support medium size studio monitors and speakers weighing up to 35 pounds (15.8 kilos).

The stylish Aperta stands come in both black or aluminum finishes and sell for $240 MSRP.
