Atacama offer a wide range of speaker stands with a choice of colours, dimensions and style to satisfy most requirements .
And according to Otto Jørgensen, this is where you have the most to gain from acquiring a pair of speaker stands: “The most impactful benefit of getting stands is added distance between your speakers and surfaces. It keeps early reflections to a minimum. And that’s especially important for the speakers’ low-end performance.”
The SLX Series is a professional quality stand which caters for larger bookshelf speakers where an increase in the footprint is required to ensure optimum stability.
You may have noticed that some speaker stands are fitted with spikes on the base, which help to make a rigid and stable contact with the floor. As long as the stands are both robust and stable, this strategy works well on solid floors, but you may find that it causes problems on wooden floors, due to vibrations from the speaker cabinet being transferred to the floor via the rigid stand and spikes. The floor will then act as the king of soundboards!
Speaker positioning is critical when it comes to creating the ideal soundscape. KEF Performance Speaker Stands were engineered in the UK specifically to ensure bookshelf speakers sound at their best. This encompasses ideal driver height positioning, steel damping plates accompanied by aluminium tube and base plates, and space available for the addition of inert filler for further stability. The Performance Speaker Stand is ideal for the LS50 and LS50 Wireless, but can also be utilised by other KEF Bookshelf Speakers.
The stand features a simple and elegant style that allows it to blend in neatly into the décor of any home. An integrated cable management system allows myriad cables to be hidden away within the stands to create a clean look, which is ideal for bookshelf speakers that are connected to a wide range of audio sources.
