Can speaker stands really make a difference to the sound you hear? I just got off the phone with Ron from Pacific Island Audio here is Canada. While chatting about Eventide, DPA and Audient gear he told me about these new speaker stands. Well after 5 min. I am really interested in learning more about them now! I'm told that everyone who hears what these do, via positioning and the decoupling aspects are completely blown away. The design alone is what I just love, if they actually improve the sound too, bonus. Example: He was doing a demo at a recording school, slotted to take a max of 30 min to demo them, which turned into 3+ hours of going from one engineer until they had the entire class. First it started out as one instructor listening to these, then he grabbed and few more guys walking by "hey, listen to these!" until they had the entire class checking them out. Everyone was amazed on how the bass and mid freq clarity was improved. And not just a bit either. They all said it was really apparent and this ended up in a fight over who was going to buy the demo pair! I believe they used Focal's side by side so there was no mistake. No snake oil. Not cheap though, somewhere around $700 a pair. But we all know, high end and that last 2% comes at a price. But that last 2% is what separates the deciding factors every time. I'm going to try and get a pair here. elevation pro™ EVP-M1 SOS review : Ardán Audio EVP M1 Beautifully engineered under Italian workmanship: Check these out!
