Desktop Isolation Filter with Stand

Thank you for choosing Auray.

The Auray RF-DT-10 Isolation Filter will improve the audio quality of desktop productions by helping to capture clean vocal recordings in acoustically untreated rooms like a home studio or office. Whether your recording podcasts, remote broadcasts, or voiceovers, the filter isolates your microphone and absorbs unwanted acoustic reflections and ambient noise. High-density acoustic foam lets sound waves pass through, and the vented shell prevents the sound from reflecting back into the microphone, for a close and dry sound that’s preferred by professionals.

The adjustable desktop stand and mounting bracket let you position the microphone and filter at the perfect height and distance from the source to ensure the best sound for your recording or broadcast. The included 5/8-27 adapter provides compatibility with most shock mounts and mic clips.

Positioning the Microphone

For the best microphone isolation results, the microphone capsule should be positioned at the center of the filter.

  1. Position the shock mount or mic clip so it’s centered with the filter. Tighten the star nut counterclockwise to secure.
  2. Adjust the height of the stand by loosening the stand’s twist lock, setting the filter to the desired height, and retightening the twist lock until secure.
    Important! Always support the microphone when adjusting its height on the stand.
  3. Adjust the distance of the microphone from the filter by loosening the extender and moving the filter to the desired position. Retighten the extender until secure.
