Markham, Ontario – September 14th, 2020 – Today, IsoAcoustics adds the zaZen to its award-winning range of isolation products. The zaZen I and II are isolation platforms designed to isolate turntables, tube amps, and other sensitive audio equipment from any interference caused by vibrations and resonances. The name zaZen is from Zen Buddhism and refers to sitting in peaceful meditation. Fittingly, the isolation platform provides a low noise floor that allows listeners to tune in, zone out, and discover the finer details they’ve been missing in their music.
The new zaZen models feature an elegant medium-gloss black finish over a dense fiber construction to provide the ideal combination of visual and acoustic design. IsoAcoustics’ patented isolation technology is integrated into the zaZen with their industry-leading isolators recessed in the platform’s bottom corners. Combining the mass from the dense platform with the IsoAcoustics isolators creates a high degree of isolation, allowing turntables and electronic components to perform at their absolute best, revealing greater clarity and detail in your music.
The zaZen is available in 2 models. zaZen I has a weight capacity of up to 25 lbs and works well with lightweight hi-fi components and turntables. zaZen II works best with heavier equipment weighing up to 40 lbs. Both models are 17” Wide x 15” Depth (432mm x 381mm). The zaZen I is 1.2” (30mm) in height and the zaZen II is slightly taller at 1.4” (34mm).

“After the success of our DELOS platforms, we wanted to make a smaller platform designed for lighter turntables and hi-fi components,” says IsoAcoustics’ founder Dave Morrison. “We are excited for the release of zaZen because we have been extremely happy with how it performs. It’s affordable and very effective. We can’t wait for people to try it for themselves.”
The IsoAcoustics zaZen will be available in the UK and the US on September 30, 2020, the price for the zaZen I is £199.99/$199.99 and for the zaZen II is £229.99/$229.99.
