The key to achieving the best surround sound experience is placing surround speakers equidistant, on either side of, and behind listeners. Speaker stands versus tabletop or mounted speakers are ideal for creating this experience. Stability of the stands is essential, especially if you have small children or large pets in your home.
I’M ALL ABOUT THAT BASE The weight and shape of the speaker stand base determines its stability. At over 6lbs, the base of the STAND:1 is the heaviest of any stand designed for the SONOS PLAY:1. And, with a wide footprint and interchangeable rubber feet and carpet spikes, you can rest easy that the stand will remain upright, no matter what type of floors you have in your home.
BACK IT UP It’s ideal to tuck the base of the stand under a couch. If your couch has an angled back, a stand with a vertical stem often hits the top of the couch, preventing the base from sliding under. The patented design of the STAND:1 includes an unique angled stem that can conform to the back of any couch, even ones with angled backs, so you always have a backup.
DOWN LOW The higher the base weight to stem/neck weight ratio, the lower the center of gravity, and the more stable the stand. With an extra-heavy base, and a aluminum stem and neck cast from an extra light alloy, the STAND:1 offers the lowest center of gravity of any wi-fi speaker stand on the market today.
