The Richter speaker stands have been designed to complement the Richter Mentor and Merlin Bookshelf speakers but can be used with any brand. The adjustable spikes - located on the bottom plate - ensure ideal adjustment for perfect stability of the installation. It is recommended to use 'bluetack' to secure the speakers to the stand, rather than just sit them 'loose' on top.
Why Do You Need Speaker Stands?
That question is often quickly followed up with another: "Can't they just sit on the floor?" The truth is you can put the speakers wherever you like but the location and positioning absolutely and significantly affect performance. When bookshelf sized speakers are placed on the floor or against a wall their sonic output becomes 'connected' to the floor or walls. This results in sound that is muddy, distorted and lacking in clarity. Speaker stands elevate and isolate speakers from floors and walls. Sound is clearer and cleaner with much better imaging and a greater sense of realism.
