IsoAcoustics Partners with Marten High-end Speakers

Marten and IsoAcoustics have teamed up again with a new range of isolators for their loudspeakers and we think it’s time more people take a hard look.

IsoAcoustics have been in the news a lot lately because a number of loudspeaker brands like PSB and Marten have begun including their products with their speaker designs. Almost all of us here at the magazine utilize their speaker stands and platforms in our home systems and their award-winning products can be found in editing suites and radio stations around the globe. Anyone who raises their nose at audiophile tweaks like the IsoAcoustics products have never heard them.

Audiophiles are known to get rather creative when it comes to DIY isolation products; it’s not hard to understand when you see platforms, isolators, and cones selling for hundreds and even thousands of dollars.

But some companies like IsoAcoustics really know what they are doing and when some of the biggest studios and television networks like the CBC in Canada trust the folks behind these products to outfit their facilities — there is a real reason to take these products seriously. The engineering behind the products is sound.

PSB’s latest flagship loudspeakers already utilize the IsoAcoustics Isolators and having listened to them for the past two months in my own home (both with and without) — I promise you that they make a real difference.

Marten and IsoAcoustics have partnered in this scenario to offer Marten Isolators on Marten’s Coltrane and Mingus flagship floor-standing speakers.

IsoAcoustics’ award-winning acoustic isolation technology was first introduced by Marten on their Parker series speakers when they launched in June 2020.

Following this overwhelming success, Marten and IsoAcoustics are teaming up again to announce that Coltrane 3 and Coltrane Tenor 2 are the latest models to receive the Marten Isolator upgrade.

Marten Isolators are now standard for the Coltrane series, Mingus Orchestra, and the Parker series but are also available as upgrades across the Marten range (with the exception of Duke 2).

Listeners can be sure that Marten Isolators will complement and enrich the acoustic performance of the Coltrane and Mingus series. By managing the boundary condition between the speaker and the supporting surface, Marten Isolators reduce the transfer of energy to the floor and prevent reflections from being conducted back into the enclosure, leading to improved definition. 

Marten Isolators are designed to provide a stable foundation for Marten speakers, allowing the speakers to deliver remarkable three-dimensional stereo imaging and clarity regardless of the floor construction.

Dave Morrison, Founder of IsoAcoustics, adds, “I was very pleased to work with Leif Olofsson and the team at Marten to develop the Marten Isolators, and I’m very excited about the results we were able to achieve. The customer feedback and reviews for the new Parker Series have been remarkable. We are now excited for everyone to experience the difference the Marten Isolators make with the Coltrane and Mingus Series. Incredible speakers, incredible products, and an amazing team. We feel privileged to be part of this project.”

Leif Olofsson, Chief Designer of Marten, is equally enthusiastic about the partnership, “I loved working with the guys at IsoAcoustics. When you are designing, I think it’s good to change gears sometimes. Working with others changes the pace. Plus, they have such good products and knowledge in the field.”

IsoAcoustics manufacture a wide range of isolation stands and isolators that work with a wide range of products; including hundreds of bookshelf and floorstanding loudspeakers and are not unaffordable.
