Improvements In sound Quality
Most systems need a rigid and solid support to help to isolate the equipment from vibrations not just the vibrations from the speaker’s themselves but the many low frequency vibrations caused by extraneous sounds. Isolation can be improved in 3 distinct ways, first the heavier the stand the more stable it will be in absorbing vibrations, secondly it will also improve the quality of sound reproduction by isolating the stand from the floor and this is where spikes are essential to isolate and create a stable and rigid platform.
As well as the stand spikes further improvements can be made to ensure that each shelf is also isolated and for Audiophiles the final improvement would be to fit individual isolation cones below each item of equipment and particularly products such as CD players and Turntables. Hi Fi and AV Equipment stands decouple sensitive Hi Fi and AV equipment particularly turntables, Compact Disc Players and larger power amplifiers from the supporting structure and eliminates sound transmission, significantly improving definition and overall imaging and this has an effect on the musicality and enhanced enjoyment to music and sound effects. It works by the elimination of energy transfer to the surrounding surfaces. The result is markedly enhanced sound clarity, superior isolation and tightening up of the bass, providing a more accurate sound stage.
