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.
Many stands come with a compartment dedicated to sand and similarly heavy and well-damped materials. And there’s method in the madness. You see, the speaker plays music by moving its drive unit in and out to create sound pressure: when the drive unit pushes outwards, it creates sound pressure, but when it moves inwards it pushes the entire speaker backwards.
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.
