Furthermore, in accordance with Newton’s third law of motion (each action has an equal and opposite reaction), whenever the speaker cone moves in one direction it will try to push the speaker cabinet the other way.
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!
A speaker platform is designed primarily to provide a degree of mechanical isolation between the speaker and the surface upon which it is placed, while keeping the speaker firmly in place. This is particularly important when siting speakers on lightweight desks or shelves, as these can easily be set into vibration if in direct contact with a speaker cabinet.
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.
And stands are especially helpful in the low-frequency area, as this part of the frequency spectrum is omnidirectional and therefore more sensitive to surfaces nearby than the high-frequency area.
To sum up, the platforms with a heavy plate of some type on top are the most effective, though you can add mass very easily to any type of support by using floor tiles. Similarly, the more massive and better damped a speaker stand, the less vibrational energy is likely to make it through to the floor and less the stand itself will vibrate. Compared with the cost of speakers, adding suitable stands or platforms is relatively inexpensive, yet it can make a very worthwhile improvement to the overall sound quality!
The range begins with the award winning Nexus Series, a three column design made for the HiFi enthusiast. As with all Atacama speaker stands, Nexus allows you to increase the mass of the stand by filling the largest column with Atabites.
