B&W STAV24 S2 Speaker Stands
The B&W STAV24 S2 speaker stands have been designed specifically for the B&W 600 series of bookshelf/stand-mount speakers but can be used with other compatible B&W speakers or any speaker with similar dimensions so surround yourself with storied sound with their custom designed STAV24 S2 speaker stands.
This elegant floor stand raises the speakers to the correct listening height and provides a stable, rigid support ensuring that you get the very best from your speakers and that is whether they are B&W or some other quality brand. The heavy, cast iron base ensures stability and the extruded aluminium columns may be filled with Atacama Atabites to add mass and damping. The spike foot option should be used when the stands are to be placed on a carpeted floor. The spikes pierce the carpet to rest on the surface underneath. Adjust the spikes to ensure that the stands are vertical and don't rock.
This latest edition of the STAV24 stands has been over 8 years in the making to deliver a pure and precise soundscape.
Note: Due to its corrosive properties, we do not recommend building or beach type sand.
Why Do You Need Speaker Stands?
That question is often quickly followed up with another: "Can't they just sit on the floor?" The truth is you can put the speakers wherever you like but the location and positioning absolutely and significantly affect performance. When bookshelf sized speakers are placed on the floor or against a wall their sonic output becomes 'connected' to the floor or walls. This results in sound that is muddy, distorted and lacking in clarity. Speaker stands elevate and isolate speakers from floors and walls. Sound is clearer and cleaner with much better imaging and a greater sense of realism.
Timber Floors? No problems! UK brand Atacama manufacture what we affectionately call 'spike shoes' that sit under each spike and thus eliminate damage to timber flooring. They can also be used on tile or stone floors. They are and optional extra accessory. Of course, you can use the included rubber 'buttons' but spikes and spike shoes will deliver superior performance.
How To Make Stands Even Better: Where appropriate - like here with the B&W Stands - the centre post/tubes are hollow and can be 'filled' to further dampen vibrations, help minimise unwanted resonances and as a bonus extra, provide added stability. Gel pads (sold separately) will add 10mm to the overall height. However, to make your stands sound even better, Audio Trends recommend that you fill the stands with Atabites SMD-Z 7.5HD inert filler to achieve maximum sonic performance. Up to 10.4KG can be used per pair. Click here to read more about Atabites.
