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.
Moseco are the designer model in the Atacama range using both acoustic and environmentally friendly Bamboo to enhance the listening experience. Moseco has recently been awarded both 5 stars and BEST SPEAKER STANDS 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 in What Hi-Fi? S & V magazine ,so don’t just take our word for it!
The heavier the stand, the less it will move, and with many hi–fi and pro–audio speaker stands (including many of the models made by Atacama, for example), it’s possible to fill the hollow support column with a heavy material to add mass and to damp resonances. This could be sand, shot or any other heavy but well–damped material.
Fortunately, we don’t need to balance the speaker on actual springs, as a suitably dense piece of acoustic foam can act as both spring and damper. The speaker cabinet provides mass — so sitting a speaker cabinet directly onto a piece of foam, such as an Auralex MoPad, will bring about an improvement in the amount of vibrational energy getting through to the desk. However, foam isn’t particularly rigid, so the cabinet may still tend to move back and forth slightly as the speaker cones move, especially if the speaker cabinet isn’t particularly heavy.
All that unwanted movement can colour and distort the sound. We do our best to prevent vibrations by adding bracing to the cabinet, but that doesn’t really help with the movement.
If you already have a speaker stand with spikes and your floor is made of wood, then you should consider putting some form of isolation platform between the speaker and the stand, to prevent the cabinet vibrations reaching the stand and, through it, the floor. Avoid flimsy stands that move or rock when you touch them. If the final assembly doesn’t feel completely solid, avoid it.
