New Verity Audio MASIS Isolation System

Verity Audio writes: “Some of our proudest achievements are our bolder innovations in design, such as rear-firing woofers and separate satellite and woofer cabinets. We believe our latest addition, which was inspired from the insulation platforms found between the various sections in many of our loudspeakers, will also prove its worth.” 

The Mechanical & Airborne Sound Isolation System (MASIS), which we’ve recently introduced in most of our products, is an insulating layer that diffuses vibrations between the loudspeaker and the ground and absorbs excess sound waves. This not only prevents sound from reverberating off the ground, but also minimizes vibration of the floor and loudspeaker cabinet, especially at high volume levels.
The MASIS is made of a material featuring a high level of acoustical energy loss layered between two sheets of low-frequency vibration control elastomers. This composite is assembled inside a thin shell of solid material, then installed between the cabinet and a set of four cylindrical feet. The result is a surprisingly light, yet durable and effective insulating device.
Each layer plays a specific role: the high airborne-acoustical-energy transmission loss material traps excess acoustical energy and dissipates it as heat, preventing it from echoing off the ground. Meanwhile, the elastomer sheets absorb and neutralize excess kinetic energy produced by the speaker, especially at high volumes and low frequencies. This greatly reduces undesirable vibrations of the floor and cabinet.
