IsoAcoustics Inc. Aperta and Modular Aluminum Speaker Stand Review Discussion Thread



Like most enthusiasts, I am forever on the hunt for cost effective, easy to implement, system improvements that can coax more performance from my home theater gear. The biggest roadblock is separating true game changers from snake oil prior to opening the wallet – after all, who wants to spend valuable coin on a product that simply exists within a system without any appreciable impact? If you’ve been in the home theater or two-channel game for a while, then you probably can jot down a laundry list of products that simply do not (and never will) live up to claims. That’s what makes the subject of today’s review a breath of fresh air.

Re: IsoAcoustics Inc. Aperta and Modular Aluminum Speaker Stand Review Discussion Thread

Great review Todd. They really do make a difference in the demo videos I watched. I have the HPS SR70 speakers which are really commercial grade Heresy's. I sent them the dimensions to see if they have something that would work for me instead of the normal risers that come with the Heresy's that I was going to order. I have my speakers on carpet now so if they do make stands I can use I will have to put some wood or stone underneath the speaker for the stands to sit on. Thanks again. TC.

Thanks, TC.

They definitely have a product that will fit your needs - most likely a custom cut modular model. Based on the Weight of your speakers and the potential size of your speaker stands, you most likely won't need to put anything over your carpet. The folks at IsoAcoustics are very customer friendly...

The stands are the real deal. Very cool stuff.

Sounds great, I will ask them about being on carpet when they get back to me. Hopefully tomorrow. I have been putting off ordering the risers because I really just don't like the look of them. Maybe this was why...

Of course it was why! Let us know what they say (and recommend). I'm sure there are others in your shoes...

Re: IsoAcoustics Inc. Aperta and Modular Aluminum Speaker Stand Review Discussion Thread

Excellent review Todd, thank you very much.

My friend and I were just talking about a good way to raise and decouple the subwoofers from the floor. He noted that by raising his Velodyne off the floor a bit tended to tighten the bottom end and as such I was going to build something as well. This appears to be a good way to handle this situation and we wont have to construct anything.
Again, thank you.

Good Listening

Jack

Todd,

You should contact mapleshades and see if you can demo their products and do the same exact testing. They offer returns on purchased products so I'd assume you could do a demo for a review.

I'd be curious to see if you note any differences in their products as well. As we all know there is many many products available.

Definitely! Just to note, the Modular stands lifted my subs 5-inches off the floor. The sub is completely decoupled... It's a great option.
