The Isoacoustics zaZen Isolation Platform is designed for turntables, tube amps and other sensitive audio equipment. The combination of the platform mass and the integrated IsoAcoustics isolation technology allows audio gear to reveal greater acoustic clarity and detail.
The zaZen features an elegant medium gloss black finish over a dense fibre construction. The platform is very dense and contains no voids, making it an ideal material for an isolation platform. The crucial element is the integrated isolators which use IsoAcoustics patented isolation technology. The combination of the mass from the dense platform with the integrated isolators creates a high degree of isolation, allowing turntables and electronic components to perform at their best.
Isoacoustics zaZen Isolation Platform Review
I loved how my Audio-Technica AT-LP60XUSB looked on top of the zaZen Isolation Platform. The glossy black was a nice base for the sliver of the player. Also, I found this added clarity to the soundstage, I was able to pick out instruments a lot easier.
Hysteria by Def Leppard always seemed to sound scratchy when at a high volume. But, with the zaZen, there wasn’t any sign distortion, and again instruments and vocals were crystal clear. Furthermore, I was not ready for how well this worked. This bought new life to my records and made me appreciate the sound they produce.
There are two versions of the zaZen. The zaZen is recommended for lighter turntables and components and has a weight capacity of 11.3 KG. The zaZen II has a weight capacity of up to 18.1 kg. It’s also important to ensure that the component can fit on top of the zaZen platform which measures 17′′Wide x 15′′Depth.
Overall, the Isoacoustics zaZen Isolation Platform provides a stable platform with a low noise floor that allows turntables to reach their full potential without interference from structure born vibrations, revealing a new level of detail and clarity.
