About the IsoAcoustics zaZen II

Eric A.

Isolate your sound system from bad vibrations

In Zen Buddhist practice, the term zazen refers to peaceful, seated meditation. That concept evokes the sturdy surface this platform provides, which decouples turntables, amplifiers and similar components from furniture to eliminate rumble and vibration. It features an elegant medium gloss black finish over a dense fiber construction, with integrated isolator "feet." The platform is 1.65 inches thick, and rated to support up to 40 lbs.

Product highlights:

  • 1.65"-thick dense fiber platform isolates components from vibration and resonance

Product Research


zaZen Isolation Platform: The zaZen (meaning "sitting meditation") is a stable isolation platform 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 model should be selected based on the weight it will be supporting and is available in two sizes -

  • zaZen I: The zaZen I is recommended for lighter turntables and components with a weight capacity of 25 lbs. It measures 17" (w) x 1.5" (h) x 15" (d).
  • zaZen II: The zaZen II is recommended for heavier turntables and componet with a weight capacity of up to 40lbs. It measures 17" (w) x 1.65" (h) x 15" (d).

Note: Use the IsoAcoustics Calculator to determine which ISO platform is right for your turntable or component.

Low Noise Floor: Navigating the tiny variations in a vinyl record's grooves, a turntable stylus has to be a very delicate instrument. Problems occur at higher volumes, footsteps cause the record to skip, but what is often overlooked are the finer details that are missing or distorted as a result of vibrations. The zaZen 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.

Dense Fiber Construction: The zaZen isolation platform features an elegant medium gloss black finish over a dense fiber construction to provide the ideal combination of visual and acoustic design to complete the IsoAcoustics platform. The platform is very dense and contains no voids, making it an ideal material for the isolation platform. 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, revealing greater acoustic clarity and detail.

Integrated Isolators: The crucial element of the zaZen platform is the integrated isolators (based on IsoAcoustics' award-winning GAIA Series) that absorb vibrations, so they do not resonate through, or reflect off the supporting surface. The isolators use IsoAcoustics patented design which consists of a top isolator, bottom isolator, and a connector. The isolation is a result of the way the three parts working together, so there is not a single path connecting the turntable to the supporting surface. It is the shape, durometer, and material characteristics of the isolators are tuned for a given weight capacity. The isolators are partially recessed into the platform and fastened into place for a strong connection to the platform.

Note: The zaZen isolation platform is designed to be used on a level surface. The zaZen platform does not have height adjustment.

I have a lightweight Rega P6, should I look for a platform that is rated for lighter duty (like the ZaZen I), or would wither work?

Christopher The zaZen I is a great isolation, but if you are planning in the future to upgrade your turntable go with zaZen II. My choice was based off of the size of my turntable. Don't forget to elevate your speakers, what a perfect addition to great sounding music.
steve  Mar 17, 2021
Most likely any quality isolation will give you more desirable sound ( increased clarity, darker background). Heavy brass weights at the correct places on the turntable plinth to increase its weight would be a recommended experiment. Always trust your ears and return to listening to Music and not Tweaks as soon as possible.

Either should work.
