TIME-CORRECTING BEDROCKS STANDS
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. Just like for floorstanders, doubling the thickness of the Bedrock base unleashes dramatically better deep bass extension with greatly improved midrange and bass detail.
We recommend all potential Maple 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.
Bedrock stands fit speakers up to 13" wide and 14" deep.
