8030a desk stands

8030a desk stands

Youngling Posts: 4 Join Date: 3/15/12 Recent Posts
Have a pair of 8030a which I want to raise 10-20cm off a desk to the correct listening height. Currently have a couple of bricks on which I then have the isopods. Saw the K&M microphone stand but think this seems a bit small for the 8030 more suitable for the 8020. Can you let me know what you recommend for looking better than the bricks I use but still sounding great?

How about: http://www.akg.com/site/products/powers ... ge,EN.html

Thanks.

I use these; 8" brings my 8030a's to the perfect on-axis position for me. The spikes shown in the photo were not used.

"Short table stand" 800-406 (K&M 23310-370-55) is well suited for the 8030A. Preferably used together with stand plates for better positioning.

Hi,

Would these be better then the reasonably priced K&M stands and iso plates from an acoustic perspective? I'm thinking of getting them from digitalvillage but like the OP I'm concerned they may not support the 8030a's fully.

Be interested in the forums thoughts.

Thanks,

GM

The stands I linked support the 8030's very securely and don't need to use the stand plates at all. They also offer taller stands and all black versions. If you desire a shorter stand you could easily modify them by cutting the vertical risers to the height required.

Thanks all who posted. I'm going for the Genelec/K&M stands with stand plates. My issue was a mix up with a music shop who sent me smaller K&M stands which looked a bit small for the stands.

Big thanks to Source distribution in the UK who chatted to me. And rubadub music shop in Glasgow who are getting them into stock for me.

Thanks,

I just switched desk stands to something I like much better. They were not available at the time I purchased my 8030a monitors. They put the speakers at the same 8" height which was/is perfect for me and provide much better isolation to and from the desktop, very reasonably priced an ideal solution. They are sold as a pair and come with short and long tube risers as well as inserts for the tubes that can provide additional tilt up or down if needed for your specific application.
