Characteristics of a Good Speaker Stand

Posted by Pin Point Mounts on 11/30/2014 to Tips and Advice
Here is a basic litmus test that is a trade secret of Audiophiles. Play a piece of music with very strong bass. Place your hand very lightly on the speaker's side which has the most vibrations. Place the same hand on the middle of the speaker stand's pillar. Compare the vibrations that you feel. You may have to do this several times to have an accurate assessment. If the vibrations on the speaker is stronger than that on the stand. Your stand is not too good at its job. If the vibration feels about the same, your stand is doing a decent job. If the vibrations are stronger on the stands then on the speakers, you have one hell of a stand.

Posted by Pin Point Mounts on 11/29/2014 to Tips and Advice
A speaker stand that sounds bad with a particular pair of speakers may work wonders with another pair of speakers. The reason for this is simple. It all has to do with how efficient the stands can drain away the vibrations created by the workings of the woofers. If your sound system is muddy-sounding, lacking in focus and booms- your speaker stands could be at fault. If the stands are solid, of high quality and expensive, and your system still sound this way, it could be due to misuse because of a poor understanding of how the stands work.
