This kind of workmanship is old school...quality that is meant to last generations...The result on the sound was obvious - much faster and more deeply extended bass, this caught me off guard on some songs, the bass was explosive, and the real surprise was the enhanced clarity and focus of the midrange. Now the soundstage floats like a ghostly high resolution image about 4 to 5 feet above the speaker. I dont think I have been as satisfied with a product since I bought the Marquis center channel itself. Stand and speaker are now married. I cant imagine the speaker on any other stand. - Steven N.
CENTER CHANNEL BEDROCK
Optimally placing a center channel speaker is tough. Mounting the speaker on top of your TV is especially bad for sound and video quality. The Center Channel Bedrock is the perfect placement solution and a major sonic upgrade. Matched with a pair of Bedrocks for the left and right, it completely transforms the sound of small speaker home theater systems. You get the huge, warm, room-filling sound normally expected only from big, obtrusive, floorstanding speakers. And, as a bonus, no obstructed views and improved dcor.
Only low, on-the-floor mounting can make smallish speakers sound so huge, warm and transparent. Optimized tiltback positioning, combined with super-solid maple base and heavy vibration-draining brass feet, yields amazing transients and details. Percussion and piano attacks gain startling potency. Ditto for bass power and articulationenough to cross those subwoofers off your wish list. Surprisingly, the soundstage image floats well above the floor.
We recommend all potential Bedrock customers try a simple experiment to hear the benefits of low mounting: listen to one of your favorite tracks with the speakers sitting on the floor in front of their current stands, tilted back with a wood or metal block under the front with the tweeter aimed slightly above your ear. If your floor is carpeted, lay down a heavy plank or cutting board first. Then put the speakers back on their stands and listen to the same track again. This preview lets you hear about half of the bass improvement you'll get from Bedrocks, but none of the treble and midrange improvements.
