Sound on sound

We probably all spend a considerable amount of time and effort
researching what home studio equipment to buy. Monitors are an obvious
example, as even the briefest trawl through the SOS forums quickly
reveals. But after spending a small fortune on monitors, who gives an
equal amount of thought to how to support those expensive new speakers?
It is an inescapable fact that the loudspeaker stand can affect the
performance of the speaker quite dramatically — but only in a bad way.
If the speaker is not supported correctly, it cannot deliver the
intended performance and, if the stand is not designed and used
correctly, it can generate noises of its own, that mask or interfere
with the wanted sound from the speaker….
For fixed studio installations, these stands represent a good long-term
investment, able to accommodate different sized speakers easily while
providing a solid and stable support platform with good control of

"... we look forward to
installing our second surround set of T-S 1
stands at the AES in NY – they are exactly what we needed for our 7.1
demo rooms, they do provide an outstanding solid platform for any
nearfield audio monitor we use, in addition, height adjustment and a
fast assembly design allow us to take them on the road and they look

"...I use the heavy and narrow ADAM S3A speakers vertically, so I
something stable. I searched for some time with no luck. I even
considered getting stands custom made to my own designs. I even bought
and returned an inadequate product.
ADAM recommended Towersonic so I took the plunge. I am happy that I
did. My TS-1's are totally stable with light Eco-Wool damping. This
springy material also makes height change very easy. The sound is
considerably improved; a bonus I didn't expect. The design is very
similar to my custom plans. With respect to the future, I am pleased to
note that Towersonic have also addressed 5.1 well, including VESA
support for lcd screens. These are not simply the best available, they
are the ONLY product I could find that is actually up to the job."
" ...When we planned to expand our studios for Surround Mastering , we
searched for additional
speaker stands too. We found a couple of stands, but none of them
seemed to be professional enough or
a sonically perfect solution. We found stands which were thin as a
needles and we also found stands which were as
expensive as a car !!!! and none of them satisfied us !!! And there are
REALLY BIG sonic differences between stands !!!
The search finally came to an end when I found Towersonic's T-S 3
The stands feels like a solid oak , the sonic performance is
outstanding , you really hear the MUSIC
and not a piece of music with a lot of resonances produced by weak
The phantom mid in the centre of the speakers became more defined ; the
low end in the control
room was solid , deep and clear !
The same revealing experience happened with the 5.1 Surround Audio
Monitor setup .
The price is very fair, it`s worth every cent ! Sebastian is a really
professional guy, who
provides a fantastic customer support .
Highly recommended !!!!"

"...First time I listened to my speakers on the new stands I didn't
know how I could live without it so far. The bass response is so much
tighter. All the mud went away. I really thought I have new speakers in
front of me. The stands themselves are rock solid and look pretty cool.
But the sonically improvement is really worth the price. The ability to
adjust the height of the speakers is another big plus. All in all, I
love the monitor stands and I would recommend them to anybody who seeks
for new monitor stands. I didn't expect too much from changing the
speaker stands, but the Towersonic stands changed my mind."
