Solidsteel SS: The Best Speaker Stands You'll Ever Own
It is of critical importance for the performance of monitor-type loudspeakers to have them positioned at the correct height. Additionally, since this type of speaker is often relatively light in weight compared to floor-standing units, it is essential to maintain high stability and rigidity. And, as with all components, proper decoupling must be considered. The Solidsteel SS Series fulfills a longstanding need regarding the proper setup and enjoyment of monitor speakers, and must in many ways be considered as important as the units they support.
Three-leg speaker stand, fillable steel frame with a crimped steel bar inserted, with anti-resonant finish. MDF top plate in black matte finish, supported and isolated on precision ball bearings. Height-adjustable, stainless steel spikes.
So many of you have been asking for great sounding, reasonably priced equipment racks that offer exceptional component isolation. Here they are…
Solidsteel's outstanding equipment racks, amplifier stands and speaker stands are sonically superior as well as beautiful to look at. They are exceptionally well designed and built, enhance the sound of any components (including turntables) placed on them, and look great in the process. Audiophile sensibilities and Italian design have converged in a single product. Solid Steel racks present our systems, not only in our showroom, but also in our homes, (and camping trips!) in the best light both sonically and visually. Now you can achieve the same results for your system. Solidsteel's racks are hand-welded for rigidity and stability, and the welding is a work of art, regardless of price or model. The stainless steel structural tubes incorporate crimped steel bars at the end of each tube, and are coated with either silver or black anti-resonance paint. The dimensions of the racks, and the shape of the cones are all chosen to maximize sonic benefits. Each 3-legged rack is equipped with adjustable leveling spikes, and are fillable with lead, sand, or Microbearing steel to further enhance their performance.
The structure and diameter of the three vertical tubular supports are identical to those found on the flagship Series Six tables. Removable stainless steel spikes allow the frame to be filled with sand, lead shot or other damping materials. High-precision ball bearings interface with the MDF plate at the three frame contact points, providing an exceedingly high level of speaker isolation. This top plate is interchangeable, ensuring a high degree of optimization with the greatest number of monitor loudspeakers.
SS stands are supplied with “Blu-Tack”, a sonically neutral material used to properly couple the speaker to the top plate.
