Auralex Introduces DeskMax Stand-Mounted Acoustical Panels

Auralex Acoustics has introduced the DeskMax v2 stand-mounted nearfield acoustical panels for permanent and makeshift recording environments.

Auralex said the DeskMax v2 is designed as a portable, lightweight variable and effective absorption treatment for recording, voice-overs, podcasting, broadcasting, mixing and live performance applications.

Equally appropriate in the studio, home and office production areas or on stage, the panels can be used anywhere boundary-mounted acoustical treatments aren’t feasible or desired. It is ideal for voiceover professionals working in rented spaces and can also be used as a very effective amplifier and speaker cabinet baffle.

The pair of 2 x 2-foot x 3-inch panels are made from Auralex Studiofoam. They mount to the included desktop stands and store in a travel bag that accommodates both panels and stands.
