Auralex Acoustics is debuting the ProPOD Acoustic Decoupler, intended for use in decoupling monitors and other audio equipment weighing 50 pounds or less.
Earmarked as the first in a new line of decouplers that the company will unveil throughout 2021, the ProPODs come in packs of four. Each cylindrical stand consists of a powder-coated carbon-steel exoskeleton and a viscoelastic-polymer shock absorber, and is intended to improve the soundstage and presence of a user’s monitor, loudspeaker or subwoofer within the specified weight range.
“We invested significant resources in the development of the ProPOD and are happy that it will help folks hear what their loudspeakers — and other components — actually sound like. The sonic benefits of the ProPOD are not subtle; it definitely removes the veil. We feel that it dramatically outperforms the competition — and at a more agreeable price point,” said Eric Smith, founder and president of Auralex.
The puck-like ProPODs are placed at corners or where need be. The powder-coated steel exoskeleton found on the decouplers is available in two color choices: matte black and pearl white. The ProPOD Acoustic Decouplers retail for $129.99 per set of four and are available through all Auralex retailers.
