I like this stand a lot. Comprised of two substantial castings, base and top, with an extruded column. Built up easily, (one of the column threads could have been cleaner but OK now) the major plusses are generous cable ducts which allow insertion of mains connectors (LS50w2) and various input cables easily. Wires can be shoved up with speakers in position by tilting the whole forward. Levelling is easily done unscrewing the spikes with fingers each side, in situ again. The result a clean non-tech look much approved by the management here. Two chambers in the column can be filled with an inert substance if desired. The top fitted with an inert panel insert is drilled for the current LS50w2 and fixings are provided. A thoughtful, elegant and effective design.
