Speaker Stands

Speakers Stand

The accurate support of quality speakers is an often-overlooked detail, even in high-end audiophile installations. You must maintain two opposing laws of physics:

First, you want the speaker to maintain an absolute position in space and move the air around it rather than move itself.

Second, you want the speaker to be sonically detached from the floor it sits upon. Should the resonance of your environment be transmitted to your speaker, or the detail of the speaker wicked away to the floor, you will be compromising the accuracy of your speaker.

How do you make sure the speaker is securely mounted in space but not transmitting resonance? For this, you need a quality speaker stand that provides strength and isolation. Many discerning audiophiles maintain the credo that “your sound is only as strong as your weakest link.” Core Audio Designs presents the ideal solution to this all-too-common problem.

The plyKraft “riser” is constructed from steel, aluminum composite, natural stone, high density 1" Apple-Ply and real wood veneers, all of which are ideal materials for use in high-mass platforms. The natural stone offers mass and stability while the exposed Apple-Ply edge offer vertical presence, elegance, and refinement. Wood components are milled with precision two head CNC routers.

In addition to the natural beauty of the speaker stands, the adjustability feature allows for customization for the individual listener. Ideally, the tweeters of the speakers should be at ear level. However, the adjustability of the speaker stands lends itself to experimentation, accommodating the listener’s personal sonic preference. Complete with stainless steel spikes and stainless steel coasters, the “riser” will complement a wide variety of high-performance monitors.
