Overview

Our take on the Auralex ISO-Tone™

We love it when simple ideas turn out to be effective. And that's what the Auralex ISO-Tone turntable isolation platform is in a nutshell — simple and effective. Just place the ISO-Tone platform under your turntable, and this sound-absorbing sandwich of cloth-wrapped MDF and Auralex's proprietary sound isolation foam will protect it from unwanted vibration coming from the equipment rack, desktop, or DJ case it's resting on.

Auralex ISO-Tone turntable platform

The Auralex ISO-Tone turntable isolation platform is specifically engineered to decouple your turntable from the supporting surface it rests on for greater sonic purity and accuracy.

What's under your turntable?

We love it when simple ideas turn out to be effective. And that's what the Auralex ISO-Tone turntable isolation platform is in a nutshell — simple and effective. Just place the ISO-Tone platform under your turntable, and this sound-absorbing sandwich of cloth-wrapped MDF and Auralex's proprietary sound isolation foam will protect it from unwanted vibration coming from the equipment rack, desktop, or DJ case it's resting on.

Why is that important? Because vibration that reaches your turntable diminishes its sound quality, and can even cause unwanted acoustic feedback. The ISO-Tone is specially designed to keep vibration at bay, ensuring you'll enjoy all of the focus, detail, and clarity your turntable is capable of.

  • improves low-frequency clarity

Fast delivery. Had a feedback problem with new turntable. The addition of the isolation platform made an amazing improvement. Worth every penny. You can't say that about much these days!

Works surprisingly well. The only thing I could find to decouple a turntable from the cabinet it is sitting on. Expensive but you get what you pay for.

Pros:

Cons:

Effective but a little pricey

Chad from Falls Church, VA on 1/9/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Auralex ISO-Tone does a very good job of reducing room vibrations and decoupling my Pro-Ject Carbon Esprit turntable from the shelf that it rests on. My turntable rests on a bar in a high traffic area of my house, and I have noticed a strong improvement in the reduction of vibration related noise and skipping while listening to my LPs. My only complaint is that it is fairly overpriced for what it is (carpeted board resting on a foam bottom), however it does the job as advertised.

Pros: Helps reduce vibration induced noise and skipping for turntable, good size

Cons: Overpriced for simple design and materials

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! Keep doing what you're doing. I truly thought there was no way you could get rid of the insane vibrations coming from my subs but you've proven me wrong once again.

Stopped all record skipping

Ron from Utica, NY on 8/20/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have my turntable next to my subwoofer in my set up , the bass was causing needle jump and skip while playing records. The ISO-Tone pad stopped all vibration and skipping even when bass is turned up load. Worked perfect for my needs.

Pros: Stopped all vibration and skipping

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

wanted to try out product see what the hype is about. tone arm still jumps/skips although not as much as before. fair product but not really worth the cost.

Pros: little improvement.

Cons: overpriced.

No more skipping stylus

Todd from Kalispell, MT on 7/20/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Although I felt the price was a bit steep when I placed the order, many other options I researched were even more expensive. This is a heavy, quality built pad that lives up to its advertising in eliminating unwanted vibration. No more stylus skating when I bump the stereo cabinet.

Pros: Eliminates vibration as advertised. Prompt product delivery from Crutchfield.

Cons: A bit expensive, but worth the price.

It Is what It Is

Louis J from Midlothian IL on 1/22/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well I've read probably way to many things one can do to "improve" the sound of the various components that make up a "stereo /music system. Been reading them since the early 70's. Now any change in said system will produce something different, weather one can hear the difference or perceive the difference, is ----. Now if you want to isolate your 'table from what it's sitting on. This will do it. Meaning if you live close to the street and a garbage truck rumbles buy and the earth shakes. more than likely your stylus will not go skipping across your record. Or if you have young children and they go bouncing across the floor, more than likely your stylus won't go bouncing across your record. Are you gonna hear deeper bass, quieter backgrounds, air between instruments, and all that-- I don't know??? Go buy a maple platform lacquered and finished by Amish furniture makers or a dampened hollow carbon platform that you fill with acoustic sand, spend upwards of 500 bucks and find out. The only thing I can attest to is it's better to have your table on an isolation platform of some kind than not. This works does the job and is cool looking. So you go from there.

Pros: It works and it looks cool

Cons: Not really

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product took away the skips due to walking on the floor around my new turntable. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to reduce vibration due to movement or unstable surfaces.

Pros: Sturdy, well made, just what I needed

Cons:

Helps open up your vinyl.

Mike from River Hills, WI on 1/6/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It seems to stable the turntable effectively, which has improved the sound.

Pros: Reasonable cost Helps sound

Cons: Still having issues with skipping when I walk across the room.

nice and simple

Terry from Keizer, OR on 10/24/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Although I didn't experience any noticeable sound improvement, I think it makes sense that it will reduce the chance for feedback or rumble during higher volume listening.

Pros: looks good, simple

Cons: price is a little high

Simple but effective!

Deb from Puyallup, WA on 7/16/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As an audiophile, I have learned that adding a few little extra's to ensure good sound quality never disappoints. This little unit "does the job" it was designed to do. I am pleased with the purchase/addition for my vinyl listening pleasure!!

Pros: Simple design with good construction - works as advertised.

Cons: None
