The Sound Anchor Speaker Stand for Magnepan Loudspeakers is a necessity for any audiophile who wishes to extract more performance from his or her speakers. They are a bolt on replacement for the "T" feet that come standard with your speakers. The Tee feet do an ok job of holding the speakers vertical but that's about it.
Sound Anchor Magnepan Stands pick up where the standard "T" feet leave off. They address the issues of stability, rigidity and the ability to adjust tilt and level. These things are important if you wish to get the most performance from your speaker system.
Sound Anchor Magnepan Stands consist of a welded tubular steel base that uses 3 heavy duty adjustable spikes for leveling and a tubular steel top section that fastens to the speaker. The two sections are bolted together in a way that allows the speaker to be tilted forward or backward. Two turnbuckles are used to adjust the speaker tilt angle and make the whole structure more rigid.
The sonic benefits of placing a speaker on spikes and holding it more solidly are known and accepted throughout the audio world. The Sound Anchor Magnepan Stand has one more thing to offer. The adjustable tilt feature allows the audiophile to tune the sound staging and imaging characteristics of the system. When the speaker panels are set up perfectly vertical the speakers are quite transparent and throw a very wide but somewhat undefined sound stage. When the panel is tilted forward a few degrees the sound stage becomes more defined and the images get more precise.
Sound Anchor Magnepan Stands are available for the MG 1.6, MG 3.5, MG 3.6, MG-20, MG-12 and SMG speakers.
