Could you provide more info about the Stage? Is it the same configuration as the 20" stand or is it a low stand like the picture of the Stage amp stand I saw from when they showed it an a show a while back? I'd love to see a picture of this. I am a complete Sistrum convert. I have thier Sp-1 stand under my turntable and it made quite an improvement.
The Sistrum speaker stand I have is a bit customized. My speaker's depth was too small to hit the back point so I bought an additional top plate and point so the back point could be slid in closer than the back column.
you can see the picture in my virtual system
I would eventually like to get their whole equipment rack. I'm waiting for the cheaper verion of the Stage rack to come out.
Tbg & Emailist,
I will try to answer your questions as best I can. Here is the link http://www.starsoundtechnologies.com/compactmonitorplaforms.HTML
The SPK series is what my previous monitor stand was. On their web site you see the bottom plate (sp-004) but no top plate. Emailist's and my stands have the top plate identical to the bottom plate.
On the link I provided the bottom stands are the Stage series stands. As good as the SPK series are the Stage series is a significant leap forward in performance and price.
The brass Stage stand I have is the one in the photo. Star Sound is finalizing a complete brass version in which I have reserved.
I also have their Stage amp stands and two tier Stage rack. The two tier rack weighs in at over 106 lbs of solid brass. The science and technology behind this product is amazing. I have the prototype version, but from what Robert is saying @ Star Sound their final version will be displayed at CES in Jan. 08.
I do not want to hype any manufacturers products, but wait to you hear what the Stage products can do.
I have been having fun with the Stage monitor stands and have been using various monitors to see what the Stage brings to the sonic table. Well, can you say dynamics,dynamics,dynamics.
You both may email me if you would like to discuss further.
Irish65, so the brass stands at the bottom are the Stage stands, but Emailist has one of the top stands with an added top plate. Also it is the bottom, Stage, units that allow the flexibility to go from 6-8" left and right and 6-12" back? What will the all brass stand add, just brass top and bottom plates? What is the black material?
I must admit that I have heard these products at shows, but saw them as not technically advanced. Some people before have said they really like them, but I blew them off as not very experienced.
I too was shocked when I heard the price. I was looking to get a 6 tier rack.
That would only set me back $42,000. I have enough gear for 2 rack probably.
When talking with Robert at Starsound he indicated that the purity and machining of brass they use is unlike almost any other in the audio biz.
They have really broken this down to a science, and the metalurgy is crucial to the effectiveness. I have read their credits on thier site about the scientific background of their rather large team of scientists, designers and fabricators.
These people are serious! To call them just a stand seems like a huge understatement.
You can read their white papers here.
I would like to see other manufacturers utilizing some of their products and designs inside componenent where they could be even mor eeffective than simply sitting on a stand. I in fact am going to try to modify my MA-1 amps internally using Sistrum products. You can clearly tell I have drunk the cool-aid on this one.
