Oh those are cool speaker stands!

Checks on amazon to see that they are $110.

On second thought I really like the foam under mine.

u/ocinn · 5 pointsr/audiophile

Get Zeos to review these and we can finally kiss the yoga block meme goodbye.

This looks really nice.

> sees price $155 a pair

Wait this is why we have IsoAcoustics, which actually isolate. And for less.

u/jacobfromnm · 5 pointsr/battlestations

They're the IsoAcoustics ISO-L8R Medium Stands. I'm sorry for forgetting to add them to the parts list above, I suppose I rushed that portion. :-)

u/niclake13 · 5 pointsr/WeAreTheMusicMakers

Good monitors are huge. Headphone sound is fine, but you want to mix using unbiased reference monitors so you know what things are going to sound like. Then you make sure it sounds good through headphones, in the car, etc. Even something like these will make a huge difference. If you've got some extra coin, go for something better. I found a pair of Mackie HR842 monitors on eBay for $250 (the old ones, not the new mk2 model). They're amazing.

You don't need more inputs than what you're actually using. If you're trying for a cheap home studio, your Apogee will work just fine. Just switch cables/inputs when you're recording something new.

But anyway. Here we go. What I would buy (of note, these are all Amazon affiliate links):


  • Shure SM58 - $100 (for vocals)

  • Shure SM57 - $100 (for guitars/vocals)

  • Sennheiser e609 - $100 (for guitars, so you can double-mic)

  • 20' mic cable - $7.50 (2 for $15)


  • M-Audio Studiophile AV 30 - $85

  • Auralex MoPAD monitor pads - $44

  • OnStage SMS6000 monitor stands - $100 (if your desk isn't large enough)


  • Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Driver DI - $200

    I've been out of the "assorted percussion" game for a while, so you'll have to use your best judgement for that.

    All that I've listed is $744 off of Amazon. You can DEFINITELY find cheap used mics and the Bass DI. Look for Gear Talk: Classifieds on Facebook, for example. This is all stuff that you can use today to get your home studio off the ground and functional. You also have $256 to spend on other stuff that you might need (percussion, surdo, etc.)

    Logic and Pro Tools are built from the ground up to be recording suites. Ableton, while certainly being a live-sound-first option, works just fine. Nothing wrong with getting your feet wet using Ableton, and switching over to a bigger/better suite later. I recorded my first EP using GarageBand before making the transition myself.

    Start with the basics. Start with what you NEED to record, not what you want. While what you already have is basic and not feature packed, it works and will get you in the game. (Related: stay away from plugins until you know how to really mix well with the basic compressor and EQ your recording suite comes with.)

    Hope that helps!

You could use bricks and a foam pad. If you want something nicer looking there's IsoAcoustics ISO-L8R155 for about $109:

I wouldn't put any faith in their magic SQ improvements outside getting the speakers at ear level but for some reasonably cheap (compared to "audiophile" stands) and decent looking stands I don't really think one can do better for the $$:

u/jharrison321 · 4 pointsr/audioengineering

I have a similar pair.

They're decent, will hold any monitor just fine, but adjusting the speaker by spinning the top plate has a tendency to loosen the screws, which is annoying.

u/DieselWang · 4 pointsr/battlestations

Beautiful setup! I recommend stands to get the speakers to about ear level. It'll also help with acoustic reflections off the desk - your ears will thank you. I use these:

u/phcorrigan · 4 pointsr/audioengineering

I use these:

You can buy them with different brand names for anywhere between about $40 and $100. I elected to buy them at the lower price.

u/Olnoeyes · 4 pointsr/audiophile

Looks like these. I have a pair as well and they're pretty nice.

u/woptimus_prime · 3 pointsr/Acoustics

This is some great insight here, I'd recommend getting those monitors off your desk and at ear level with something like this, or the foam equivalent:

u/doughlow · 3 pointsr/audiophile

You should look in to Isoacoustic Speaker stands

I think they look cool and they'll separate the speaker from the desk top so you don't get any rattle.

They are ~$100 USD on Amazon

u/SoaDMTGguy · 3 pointsr/audiophile

Grab a set of these:

They will prevent any vibrations from your bookshelf speakers from affecting your turntable. Also, you should really move the sub out of the cabinet, for the bass reasons people mentioned, and also for vibrations.

Sorry we are still jerks... We're just looking out for you! You're setup looks very nice...

u/homeboi808 · 3 pointsr/hometheater

Since it's directly behind the couch and not diagonally behind, you want bipole. I have the XLBP and I have them mounted on the rear wall almost directly behind my couch, and they work quite well (mine are too high, has to cover the speaker wire outlet plate).

As for stands, you are gonna want at least a 4ft tall one for either speaker; for the Fluance, these may work.

u/Submersed · 3 pointsr/battlestations

They're Jamstands (now called Ultimate Support).

I love them. They're perfect for these monitors and they are very sturdy on both hard floor and carpet. High quality materials, I would buy again.

u/eLZhi · 3 pointsr/battlestations

i saw a lot of praise for Iso Acoustics stands when i was looking for my stands, however i couldn't get past the negative reviews for build quality (plastic and rubber) and their cost, i'm also not a fan of how they look

I'm using these

they're well built and are rather heavy (cast iron) and have a fat rubber ring at the bottom, and they look good too, well at least in my opinion.

you could also buy stand plates that mount to the rubber feet (you're already using) for extra vibration absorption if you feel its necessary.

here's how they look mounted on my 8330A's

now having said all that i'm not going to recommend one over another since i never tried Iso Acoustics stands, have fun :p

u/shia84 · 3 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

Are these good? I think I've seen them mentioned before:


BTW, do yoga blocks work well to bring it to ear level and then put some rubber on it for cheap budget?

u/ImagineWhalePoop · 3 pointsr/edmproduction

These stands are what I have my JBL 305s on at the moment. I've had them for almost 2 years, never had any problems. They are just the right size, and pretty sturdy.

There's tons of information online on how to properly set up your room for good acoustics, so I'll just tell you what to Google.

  • 38% rule
  • Equilateral triangle speaker placement
  • DIY acoustic panels
  • Overhead cloud acoustic panel
  • Bass traps
  • Damping vs diffusion
  • DIY acoustic diffuser
  • First reflection points acoustics

    And yes, you absolutely want to set up your room properly. It makes an enormous difference in clarity and stereo separation that you will absolutely benefit from, even if you consider yourself a beginner.

    And for the most part, setting it up is almost free. It just takes some preparation and basic equipment.

    Here's some examples of how acoustic treatment can help:


    If you want to make some panels, here's how various insulation types compare: I recommend UltraTouch. It's denim, which is a lot less nasty than fiberglass, and is just about as effective, too.

    If you haven't already, I'd get some speaker stands while your mirrors are being shipped. They're not expensive. These are mine:

    There are tons of DIY panel designs out there. This is what I built:

    Please let me know if you have any questions!
u/Folthanos · 2 pointsr/audiophile

Some suggestions:

u/HiFiveBro · 2 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

I really like these, I use them on my desk.

u/applevinegar · 2 pointsr/audiophile

That sucks, I'm sorry. The sweet spot in the near field is pretty narrow irregardless of reflections though.

Have you thought about using desktop stands such as these? They're pretty stable and would help a lot.

Additionally, acoustic panels are cheap and don't necessarily look ugly. Why don't you get some to cover early reflections? Look at these and these.

u/Overclocked11 · 2 pointsr/audiophile

u/bigbura · 2 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

How much desk real estate are you willing to commit to this sound system? Those speakers are designed for far-field listening and may not present a coherent sound field in the near-field. There are smaller amp solutions made for the desk environment also.

May I suggest that if you won't connect to a TV in the near future (years?) why not get the tool for the PC sound situation at hand and purchase an up-to-date tool for the future TV situation vs. compromising the PC solution now for a future "maybe."

So my advice is to get a 2.0 or 2.1 desktop solution tailor-made for this application and let tomorrow's you deal with tomorrow's TV solution.

To save desk space I'd go powered monitors on stands. My thinking on the powered vs. passive is the powered monitors have the amp/speaker electrical interaction accounted for during the engineering phase which prevents any complications from a lean/bright speaker being paired with a lean/bright amplifier or vice versa and saves you space on the desk. Looked at another way, what more easy to engineer situation is a desktop listening experience? Most of the variables of speaker separation and distance to listener are minimized to very finite distances, especially when compared to a living room setup. Why not let the engineers do their job and provide you the best listening experience they can provide for your setup and price point?

I've got the JBL LSR305s and isoACOUSTICS L8R-155 stands and like the combination very much. Had to go with an outboard controller as my sound card is noisy, went with the Scarlett 2i4 but could've used the 2i2 but that wasn't available locally.

The speakers and stands will be a little over your 500 Euro limit but well worth it in my book to spend the extra Euro to get the final solution on the first go round.

u/BingoBoingoBongo · 2 pointsr/Beatmatch

You pretty much have three options. Put the speakers on the floor (probably don’t do this), get a tripod style speaker stand or go with a pole that mounts in your sub.
I personally prefer the poles that mount inside the subs because they take up less space overall.

u/akaatnene · 2 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

Slightly pricier, but I like the look of the IsoAcoustics stands. I picked up the ISO-L8R155 for my LSR305s after using books as a stand.

I wouldn't say it was a sound improvement over the books, but it did eliminate desk vibration.

u/sweet_story_bro · 2 pointsr/buildapc

For some reason he has a good sound card but crappy speakers. That makes me think he likes music/sound? If so, maybe consider new speakers. I would recommend the Micca PB42x speakers with an aux cable, then either buy or make some stands. If he would like a subwoofer too the Dayton Sub-800 with an aux to rca cable can pack some good punch without pissing off the neighbors too much. This setup would be more than enough for the average gamer/music enthusiast. It will be worlds above what he has now. However, if he does any music recording/mixing, maybe head to /r/audiophile or /r/budgetaudiophile for more specific recommendations.

Quick note: surround sound usually doesn't make sense at a desk, but you can certainly add more speakers to what I have listed here if you'd like.

Edit: oh yeah, you'll also want a speaker cable or some speaker wire (if he has wire strippers) to connect the two speakers to eachother.

u/aberant · 2 pointsr/audioengineering

i use something almost exactly like these and auralex isolation pads.

u/Varzboi · 2 pointsr/WeAreTheMusicMakers

Having your speakers on top of stacked books is generally not a good idea if you want to get value from them in terms of good audio reference.

IsoAcoustics ISO-L8R155 Home and Studio Speaker Stands - Medium - Pair

Try these desk stands that will greatly reduce the vibration your speakers give to the desk and will sound “better” overall, which is more transparent to the monitor intended sound.

Those are an example, I got something similar for my home studio back home but you can try look for similar options :)

Hope it helps.

u/Skitch_n_Sketch · 2 pointsr/audiophile

Any size restrictions? Rythmik makes some great stuff, slightly over budget though. You've got a sealed / ported option with a minor price difference. The sealed digs deeper at the cost of output, but both claim below 20hz anyway.

As for speakers, check out the Mini Philharmonitor. The ported version of the speaker costs $750 (50 more than the sealed), but you're getting a bit more bass to start. Comes with a very well reviewed tweeter that he uses in his $1300 speakers.

For stands, its mostly dependent on your setup. Isoacoustics stands are great for on desk. For floor stands, Sanus makes a billion stands in different heights.

u/JohnBooty · 2 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

That's a tough one. I think placement is the limiting factor there; I'm not sure an upgrade is going to accomplish too much.

I think you might have some luck with your current monitors if you can angle them upwards at bit. General rule with speaker positioning is that you want the tweeters at ear level. Failing that, next best thing is to angle the speakers so that the tweeters are at least aimed at ear level. This might help and it might not, but it's an easy thing to try.

> house mates don't want separate speaker stands.

I assume they don't want speaker stands off to the sides, right? What if the speakers were on a shelf over top the turntables? Either with a wall-mounted shelf, or something like this:, those are crazy expensive and a little ugly. I don't mean these particular models, just something sort of like that. Perhaps you could find something like that in white (or simply paint it white)?

u/rix0r · 2 pointsr/MusicBattlestations

These are them:

They basically have two different heights, as you can see with the two different sizes of stanchions. There are also short little spacers you can use to add a little more height, or just put them on two corners to make them angle up or down, like I did.

u/LeZebre · 2 pointsr/diyaudio

Always wondered about that, thank you! I was checking out a pair of these earlier. Any tips or a rule of thumb about the distance between the speakers?

u/Arve · 2 pointsr/audiophile

I'd suggest DIY, as I think a $100 investment in stands is too much for a pair of speakers that originally sold around that price.

Google "TNT stubby".

If you absolutely can't or won't DIY, you're probably looking for something like this (Warning: Haven't tested them, and would not put my own 26 lbs studio monitors on them, but they will probably hold the AV40's without collapsing).

u/TryptamineTester · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace
u/Tracker102 · 2 pointsr/DJs

I use these for my KRK 8s and they work well. No complaints.

u/goodmkb · 2 pointsr/hometheater

I think my bookshelf speakers are slightly larger than average, basic 2 way speakers with a 6.5 inch midrange. My subwoofers are pretty big and heavy.

For normal listening and movies it isn't bad. But if you play something with really heavy bass the vibrations become noticeable. I'm still conflicted about the setup myself but I am not unhappy.

I purchased some cork from home depot to try to reduce vibrations and it is okay but not great

I think the next step is possibly some type of Sorbothane. Apparently it is amazing for isolation BUT you need to do calculations based on the weight of your speakers to determine exactly how much you need to use.

Another alternative I am looking at is purchasing a set Isoaccoustics. They look like a gimmick but they got pretty good reviews, and they would also raise my bookshelfs to ear level.

Post back if you end up with some solution. I'd love to hear it as I am in the same predicament.

u/BanjoCalrissian · 2 pointsr/vinyl

They're these guys

Pretty happy with them! They're relatively unobtrusive, stable, and the top is pretty large so even for relatively large bookshelf speakers like mine there's plenty of room. Plus the feet are adjustable which is an absolute necessity in an old apartment with uneven floors like mine.

u/Albatronics99 · 2 pointsr/synthesizers

Lookin' great! I have a pair of black LS50 on my computer desk, too. I'm driving them with Outlaw monoblocks. Couldn't be more pleased.

If your foam pads wear down or start to fray, check out the IsoAcoustics stands. They work great for my LS50 or just about any desktop speaker setup.

u/exit_eu · 1 pointr/edefreiheit

Gerne. Ich bin halt kein Tontechniker, also hoff ich, dass ich das auch richtig erklären kann.

Nahfeldmonitore sind eine Bauart von Studiomonitoren, die dafür gebaut sind, dass man mehr oder weniger direkt davor sitzt. Es gibt andere Bauformen auch, die stehen dann weiter weg und sind glaub ich besser, aber für daheim ungeeignet, weil man kaum genug Platz dafür hat.

Dreieck-Positionierung heisst, dass die Monitore und der Kopf ein gleichschenkliges Dreieck bilden. Also sollten beide gleich weit von den Ohren entfernt sein (und auf die Ohren zielen).

FLAC ist eine Lossless-Komprimierung, also so ähnlich wie ZIP, nur für Audio-Daten.

Das wichtigste sind natürlich gute Lautsprecher. HiFi-Lautsprecher haben meistens kein flaches Frequenzspektrum, das heisst sie sind bei manchen Frequenzen lauter als bei anderen. HiFi-Equipment hat meistens auch Filter eingebaut, damit die Höhen und Tiefen lauter sind. Man nennt das "schönen", weil für uns das oberflächlich besser klingt, aber wenn man genau hinhört, merkt man, dass dadurch das Signal eigentlich verzerrt wird. Neutrale Lautsprecher (Studiomonitore) sind für genaues hinhören einfach besser.

Das nächste ist das Entkoppeln. Wenn ein Lautsprecher auf dem Tisch steht, schwingt nämlich der Tisch mit, da der Körperschall übertragen wird. Das verzerrt das Frequenzbild auch, da jeder Körper (also auch jeder Tisch und so weiter) eine natürliche Resonanzfrequenz hat und dadurch diese Frequenz lauter wird, während andere dafür leiser werden. Dazu gibts verschiedene Sachen - Ständer, Schaumblöcke und so weiter. Ich hab Ständer, die schauen auch hübsch aus und machen einen guten Job.

Der letzte wichtige Punkt hat mit dem Raum zu tun, und zwar geht es um sogenannte Kammfiltereffekte. Wenn beide Lautsprecher z.B. unterschiedlich weit vom Ohr entfernt sind, kommt das Signal zu dir auf einer Seite mit Verzögerung an. Da Musik aus vielen verschiedenen Schwingungen besteht, heisst das, dass sich bei einigen Frequenzen dann die Spitzen und die Täler der Schwingung gegeneinander verschieben - manche löschen sich aus, manche verstärken sich, das hängt von der Wellenlänge der einzelnen Frequenzen ab. Deshalb sollten beide Monitore gleich weit vom Kopf entfernt sein.

Solche Kammfiltereffekte gibt es auch, wenn das Signal über eine Wand reflektiert wird und somit zweimal hintereinander das Ohr erreicht - einmal direkt, und einmal über den weiteren Weg via Wand. Damit verstärken sich dann auch gewissen Frequenzen und andere löschen sich gegenseitig aus. Deshalb ist es wichtig, dass die Monitore direkt auf die Ohren zielen und die Reflektionen über die Wände minimiert werden. Das geht, in dem man Akustikschaumstoff-Platten auf die Wände klebt.

Ich würd mal sagen für den Hausgebrauch reichen gute Lautsprecher und Entkoppelung eh aus, das mit dem Schaumstoff ist ein riesiger Aufwand.

Die hier sollen ziemlich gut sein (ich hab andere, die schon ein bissl älter sind). Für Entkoppelung hab ich das hier, gibt aber auch billigere Alternativen.

u/thorltd · 1 pointr/audiophile

I'd rather invest in speaker stand than mic stand for now

u/ProfessorStrangeman · 1 pointr/edmproduction

Start off with one of these under your sub and if you do desk stands a pair of these under your monitors.

If you build your own stands remember that sound is a type of radiation so you can use a lot of one material or a little of several types to stop it from translating. IE if you use wood to make your stands you will need dense, heavy, thick pieces. BUT if you do a metal pole, mounted to a cement base, with a wooden pad for the monitor with foam/rubber/denim on it, it will be much more effective.

u/DlCKFAC3 · 1 pointr/battlestations

Those are definitely some of the best value speakers I think you can get for a desktop system.

You definitely don't need to drill any holes for stands. You have a few options.

Auralex MoPads (If you buy the 4pk you'll get some extra inserts that will allow you to either angle them up to point them more towards your ear.)

Iso-Acoustics small desk stands. I'd recommend these even at their price. They work really well to decouple the speaker from your desk and the amount of adjustment you can do will work for any setup you use now and in the future. Read a few reviews and I think you'll justify the costs ...

Good luck.

Ahh yeah same depth as what I’ve got, just looks different!

Any kind of padding or iso stands helps a ton. I got these from IsoAcoustics, they make different size models for different size monitors. I’ve got old Yamaha HS50M’s which are the same as HS5’s so I got the middle size. Super sturdy and they have two different leg lengths to adjust height, and insets to tilt them up or down depending on where your ear level is.

u/carbonnerve · 1 pointr/musicproduction

I recommend these OSS speaker stands SMS6000.

Been using them for four years with a pair of Yamaha HS8, but I have never used isolation pads on them. You could more than likely get some auralex foam and you'll be fine.

Do you think that a lighting truss could work for a temporary solution? Our budget is small at the moment. We're basically trying to prove the model and show that these types of overhead videos can drive engagement on our social media platforms.

I personally own a set of speaker stands (similar to these). Do you think that a lighting Truss like this one could do the same job?

u/oswaldo2017 · 1 pointr/audiophile

5.1 means nothing with respect to quality. It is only for surround sound. If you want that, it's great, however it is not required by Not means. Under 500 is absolutely doable. I would look at the SMSL Q5 Pro DAC/amp. It has a remote and will power most passive speakers fine. On the speaker note, JBL Studio 230s would work great. That total would be around 400 ish. You really don't need a subwoofer, but with the Q5 you can add one later.
For stands check out:

All you would need then is an optical cable from your TV, and speaker wire for your speakers.

u/Qwiksave · 1 pointr/AskBattlestations

Ok you got me thinking. If you can follow my build, at least size wise, look to these stands IsoAcoustics ISO-L8R130 - Small, Pair While a bit pricey, they are for a pair, look like they'd fit on left and right of monitors and can provide the canting to get the sound positioned for your size when you sit. The size of the speakers will the raise the height a bit further, depending on your speaker choice. Besides, they look awesome, deaden unwanted vibration and can hide wires. I have these exact stands for my Audioengines.

u/Value_not_found · 1 pointr/audiophile

(ISO-L8R155 Medium)[]

The Medium is the one you want. There about a 2 cm hang-off front to back and maybe 3-4mm hang-off side to side.

One of the most immediate improvements I noticed. Took care of any muddiness I was hearing.

With my chair height, my ears end up sitting slightly lower than tweeter level at the shortest stand height of the isoAcoustics. They provide a pair of wedge inserts (in two different heights) to allow you to tilt the speakers base platform.

I have mine set to where the rear portion of the stand is elevated by about 7 mm (smaller of the two wedge inserts) compared to the front portion. Lines the tweeters right with at ear level in my listening position. It's great.

u/KCR_ · 1 pointr/audiophile

Recently just made the mistake of ordering 5 inch speaker stands for my studio monitors, obviously my monitors were far too big.

I've searched up and down for a decent set of speaker stands for these speakers but I cannot seem to find a good pair.

Any suggestions? Preferably on a website as I do not have many local stores in the area I reside in (Closest large city is 5 hours away)

Currently looking at:


Just looking for some suggestions or insight, just looking for something to place my speakers at approximately ear level and so they're not in the same surface as my record player, something sturdy would be nice. I considered just having the speakers on the same surface as the Ikea KALLAX with Isolation pads but most people seem to suggest against that due to vibrations.

I also have isolation pads I can place on top of the stands

How many of these - $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ - do you have to spend?

Most passive sound bars are not Stereo, but are made for an AV system, so they are Front/Center/Right -

Purely to illustrate what I mean.

Generally, the Center aspect would go unused.

If you go a sound bar, then you are going to have considerably smaller speakers.

Any chance we can get a photo of your current set up? Where are the speakers placed now? Would it help to put the speakers on Stands?

These are both height adjustable.

There are also Desktop Adjustable Speakers Stands, I don't see how they could help you, but are worth being aware of -

While I suspect you can find a Soundbar to get the job down, I question whether you will be satisfied with it.

What is the Brand and Model of the speakers you have now?

There are several 2.1 Computer Speaker systems that use very small Front/Desk speakers. If necessary, they could be placed on their sides rather than standing upright-

Given that you have very decent equipment, I'm concerned about making downgrade suggestions.

We can make random suggestions, but without a lot more information and perhaps a photo, it is going to be hard to make productive suggestions.

Don't let being lock into one way of thinking block you from seeing alternative solutions. I once agonized for months trying to figure out how to make my TV Stand work with a larger TV. Then one day I was walking through Walmart and saw the perfect TV Stand on sale. As long as I was locked into making the existing stand work, it was an impossible task. But by perusing an alternate solution I was up and running for $100.

That doesn't directly apply to you but it illustrates how being trapped into one way of thinking can prevent a solution. For nearly every problem ...ingenuity... is the real solution.

Single biggest improvement I’ve made. Not just getting the monitors to the right height but isolating them from my desk... before that some frequencies were being amplified by the desk.

Thanks for the advice. I do not have enough room on my TV stand for speakers so I had planned on buying these for stands. Fortunately, I have some spare optical cables that I got a few years ago laying around so I'm covered on that front.

what about the Vanatoo Transparent One? I've done some more research and that seems to be an option you can't go wrong with in the $500 budget range

by the way, Arve recommended I hold off on the sub as well. he said that in my range, the sub should cost as much as my speakers, what do you think? $500 sub? good god. he also recommended some speaker stands but they're $100!

I compared this and the vanatoo transparent one dimensions and they don't seem to match up..what's the deal there?

One thing about stands is that it has a lot to do with reducing the effect of resonance on the speaker. So some of it depends on the design of that speaker. If you place the speaker on different "stands," like a stack of books, or a cabinet, or countertop, you may hear some differences.

I've had some pricier speaker stands, and how I feel about them goes both ways, so what I'd recommend is experimenting.

For your table/desk, this set from IsoAcoustics are a popular choice for $89:

I literally copy pasted your title and this was the first result

And next time, specify what cheap is. Cheap is relative.

u/goblinpiledriver · 1 pointr/MusicBattlestations

I did some searching and I think they are Soundrise Professional Desktop Speaker Stands

unavailable on amazon though :\

I really could use something like this, but looking around it seems like everything is $70-100 for desktop stands which seems crazy to me.

edit: other places have these stands listed at $160, geez

Save yourself the time, return those and get these.

Ultimate Support JSMS70 Speaker Stand (Pair)

u/sabester24 · 1 pointr/audiophile

Thanks. Any thoughts on these speaker stands? I figured right now, my tweeters are about a foot below my ears and these would raise them about 8 inches higher, then I supposed I could tilt them up a tad.

u/BennyKB · 1 pointr/audiophile

I just received a pair of JBL LSR305s for my birthday. I am wondering what the best way is to raise them off on my carpet so I can use them while I use my TV.

I am lost as to what I should purchase. There are dozens of options for stands on Amazon, some with carpet spikes (I have carpet) and some without. What't the benefit of having these spikes?

If I eventually want to put them on my computer desk setup, should I go with something like these that I can use in my TV room and on my desk? But they are a little pricey.

I have my Elac surrounds sitting on these and they work well for me.

Ich mach jetzt mal den üblichen "unter-1000-Euro-bekommst-bekommst-du-sowieso-nichts-gescheites"-Post. Und weißt du was? Es stimmt. War dort, habe es getan. Das Problem mit Hifi bzw. Audio allgemein ist, sobald du ein Mal etwas besseres gehört hast und du auch wirklich gehört und verstanden hast was anders und besser ist an den teureren Systemen, gibt es kein Zurück mehr. Generell gilt auch (bis auf den Design-Hifi von Teufel, B&W und Co.): "You get what you pay for." Was natürlich nicht bedeutet, dass es absolut hoffnungslos ist unter der magischen 1000€ Grenze.

Ich versuche das mal in 3 Kategorien zu unterteilen:


2.0/2.1 Desktop Stereo Lautsprecher. Bekommst du zu einem Preis von bis zu 200 Euro hoch, kannste alles in die Tonne treten. Fürs Büro sicherlich ganz gut, aber das wars auch. Und lass ja die Finger von irgendwelchem 5.X-Scheiß! Für Heimkino vielleicht ganz nett, aber zum Musikhören der letzte Dreck.


Kleine Hifi-Boxen wie z.B. die Dynaudio Emit M10. Sind zwar nicht die schicksten, aber gibt's in verschiedenen Farben und am Ende soll es ja schließlich gut klingen, oder? Das ganze betreibst du mit einem NAD 3020v2 als externe Soundkarte der dein digitales Signal aus dem PC (via USB Verbindung) in ein Analoges Signal für deine Boxen umwandelt. Außerdem hat der NAD auch noch den Vorteil, dass er via Bluetooth angesteuert werden kann. Kannst also auch Mukke hören, ohne dass dein PC an sein muss. (Gesamtpreis etwa 700€ mit etwas Geduld und Research). Natürlich gibt es auch günstigere Verstärker, dann wirst du aber meist auf den Bluetooth-Zusatz verzichten müssen.


Ein paar schöne Monitore. Nein, keine zum draufglotzen, sondern welche zum hinhören. Sogenannte Nahfeld-Monitore wie sie auch in Ton-Studios eingesetzt werden. Der Vorteil von Nahfeld-Monitoren ist, dass sie dazu gemacht sind beim Arbeiten/Produzieren/Bildschirmarbeiten direkt davorzusitzen. Perfekt also für einen Desktop PC. Mein heißer Tipp in der Preiskategorie sind die Focal Alpha 65. Die gibt es gerade spottgünstig bei Thomann und sind jeden Cent wert. Spielen die Höhen schön rund und nicht überpäsent und haben ein richtig sattes (und tiefreichendes!) Low-End. Perfekt für Elektronische Musik aller Art. Zumal die Stereobühne und Räumlichkeit der Focal ausgezeichnet ist! Das Pärchen geht normalerweise für 700€+ weg, da ist der ~500€ Deal von Thomann ein Träumchen. Betreiben tust du das ganze mit einem Audient iD4 als externe Soundkarte. Falls du streamen oder generell viel zocken solltest, kannst du an das Audient sogar dein Mirkofon via XLR anstöpseln. Dazu noch ein paar vernünftige Kabel die nicht 10€ das Stück kosten und du bist für die nächsten 5-10 Jahre erstmal versogt. Nach und nach kannst du dein Setup dann noch Upgraden von zu sowas zum Drunterlegen. Gesamtpaket mit allem drum und dran auch etwa 700€.

So foam pads similair to what Diaggen posted would be better? Or just avoid foam in general?

What do i need to get then? Would stands like these:, be a better option overal for better positioning?
I assumed that Desktop stands or foam would be the best for budget and space.

u/akubar · 1 pointr/ultrawidemasterrace

They're these ones


One of them came missing a foot though so I have a janky piece of rubber stabilizing it

u/glac_elf · 1 pointr/Darts

I apologize as this isn't a direct answer but I've been looking at stands for a while and someone suggested a few days ago that instead I look at speaker stands. They are MUCH cheaper, though there is a bit of DIY.

Yesterda I ordered this (notice you get TWO for $35USD):

I'm going to drill a couple of holes at the top and mount a backboard to which I'll mount a dart board.

u/skoodlepump · 1 pointr/audiophile

I've got my studio monitors set up on a pair of these:

The bases are pretty large and they take up some space, but with my mixer and everything, my desk doesn't have room for them, so I'm able to lift them to just above screen height and angle them inward.

u/Fawawa · 1 pointr/Zeos

I got these make sure to check the dimensions of the speakers before you pick which one to get. These stands are rubber mounted to absorb alot of the vibration the speaker would send to a desk. They really do make a clear difference.

u/mycatguinness · 1 pointr/DJSetups

Hmm, They are just regular speaker stands. Pretty cheap and I like them. They came with rubber pads for a wood floor and spikes for carpet.

u/MocoIMO · 1 pointr/battlestations

I used these for my a5+ speakers when I was using a smaller desk. They aren't the best but I got them on sale for like $30 and they did the job for 6+ months

u/bosxe · 1 pointr/battlestations

I got these for myself and I really love them. They get tall enough for your space and are very sturdy. I even have the same monitors as you!

u/gs43 · 1 pointr/Zeos

I ordered the peachtree after quite a few articles I read said that you can connect an external dac to your iPhone if the dac is externally powered. I will give you an update on how it sounds!

I measured my ear vs tweeter height and it looks like i need to bring my speakers up about 8 or 9 inches. Do you have a recommendation for a short desk speaker stand? Here is one that keeps popping up when I search. Any thoughts?

u/apost8n8 · 1 pointr/hometheater

I used these brackets to make a little stand for my projector. Its solid as a rock.

u/Haze24 · 1 pointr/battlestations


Stands are these

Very solid and have foam on them pre-installed.

u/m1stertim · 1 pointr/WeAreTheMusicMakers

I use these:

They make several different sizes depending on how big your monitors are.

u/AudioMan612 · 1 pointr/battlestations

Nice setup man!

If you're trying to get better performance out of your loudspeakers, I highly recommend getting them on some stands. You want your tweeters to be at ear-level or close enough that you can tilt the speakers a bit to make a difference. This is because treble is very directional. The other reason that stands make a big difference is mechanical isolation. When your speaker cabinets make direct contact with your desk, their vibrations transfer out of the cabinets and into your furniture, which muddies up the sound.

If you want something cheap, AudioEngine DS2's would probably do the job. If you want something a bit better where you can tweak it a bit more to your liking, I highly recommend getting a pair of IsoAcoustics stands. I was able to A-B several loudspeakers on and off of the stands before I bought them, and they make a very noticeable difference. They come with 2 different heights of poles as well as two different size spacers for fine tuning or tilting. The correct size for your monitors according to the IsoAcoustics site would be a pair of ISO-L8R155's.

u/morningitwasbright · 1 pointr/vinyl

These are the stands. They are very sturdy so far. I've had them for about 2 weeks now and haven't had any issues. Setup was super easy. I recommend them.

u/NE_LightStalker · -1 pointsr/battlestations

Love the minimalist look to it.

Have you considered getting isolation pads for your speakers? They help isolate vibration from the desk and point the speakers at your ears. They made a huge impact on the quality of my speakers. Something like or
