Yes, there are aftermarket outriggers available for the Adagio speakers. In fact, there is a pair for sale here at audiogon right now. Just type in Adagio.

I have the outriggers on my Adagios (They were the ones Response34 said were for sale on Agon). They definitely provide the stability I was looking for. Whether they have any impact on the sound is a personal matter - maybe they sound a bit better to me or maybe its just wishful thinking. Jimmy at AZ told me that they will begin selling a base for the Adagios in the next couple of months (no price available yet). I would have liked to see what they were offering, but I just couldn't wait. I waited for the last year until the Soundocity outriggers became available used here on Agon.
"Can you tell me about your break-in experience with the Adagios? Mine is being schizophrenic as all heck...."
Virtually anyone who has bought brand new Adagios, myself included, have experinced the same schizophrenic nature during break-in. It takes a long time-my guestimate would be that mine took six weeks of playing three to four hours on weeknights and six hours or so on weekends (Sat and Sun) before they stabilized. I was breaking in brand new AZ speaker cables at the same time. I would add that with the Adagios, tiny changes in speaker position make a big difference. Toe-in and maintaining vertical and horizontal level is critical too. So a lot of patience and trial and error and precision with a good level will all pay dividends. Since I bought the Soundcity outriggers right away, moving the heavy speakers with those sharp spikes was quite the task until I got some smarts and used the slippery discs sold at stores for moving furniture-hard plastic on the bottom and rubber on top. With those, making small incremental and precise changes was easy until the optimum position was obtained.
