The Gibraltars are now in my system and they are the best hi fi purchase I have made in ages. I am using them...for a pair of Quad 12L speakers, and they truly have transcended the sound of these. Everything is both bigger and more detailed, with an incredibly large and well focused soundstage, and a sense of presence which gets an inexpensive Denon/Quad system embarrassingly close to the much pricier setups found in other rooms in the house. Not to mentionthe Gibraltars are stunningly beautiful and attract compliments from anyone who sees them. The level of thinking that's gone into these is obviously only matched by the level of craftsmanship. In both looks and sound they are just in a completely different league from any "stand" I've heard beforethere just isn't any comparison. I am truly amazed by these..." - Michel J.
MAPLE GIBRALTAR SPEAKER STANDS
Our Very Best Stand For Monitor Speakers
Each 12" x 12" solid maple Gibraltar base has 3 times the mass of our Bedrock stands. This, combined with its unique double-plinth design, is an especially dramatic performance upgrade in listening rooms with concrete or engineered wood floors. The Gibraltar raises speakers 10" off the floor, allowing them to fire over obstructions in the soundstage (like coffee tables) while still utilizing the sonic benefit of low-mounting the woofer. They will make your monitor speakers sound better than any other speaker standat any price. Each Gibraltar directly couples to the floor via four threaded 2" brass footers. Two brass rear support posts and an adjustable, four pound brass footer locks each speaker to its stand.
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 vibrationdraining 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.
