Italian company DMSD (Dave Mastrodonato Studio Design) were seen at Musikmesse last week in Frankfurt, and appear to have designed a new decoupler (or isolator) for studio monitors. Four of these aluminium-style bases under each monitor are designed to remove energy being lost from your driver movement, resulting in a broader listening experience. Is there some trickery going on, or can you really hear a difference on the hand-held video below?


A rigid monitor stand or base for your monitors to sit on is commonplace when setting up your studio. There are also several decouplers/isolators already available, ranging from basic acoustic foam through to adjustable frames from Isoacoustics. This new design by DMSD however, seems to have taken the idea one step further.

If the video below is anything to go by, then this is a really exciting product for many. Perhaps a set of these would leave you feeling less concerned about upgrading your monitors. Have a listen and hear for yourself!

Apparently prices start at 580 EUR for a set of 8, which isn’t cheap, but cheaper than a new set of monitors. I hope I get to try them.

Here’s a video filmed at Musikesse last week, published by the Gearstutz channel. It obviously doesn’t show the result particularly well, but I’m sure it’s still audible!
