Gregitek Stab 2 Tower Speaker Stands
Gregitek Stab 2 Tower Monitor Speaker Stands
The Stab 2 Tower Monitor Speaker Stands incorporate the same dynamic stabilization principles and bearing couplings found in the isolation platform. The supports are aluminum columns, filled with a damping material, and grounded to a steel base with adjustable spikes. The height of the stands is 28-30 inch (72-76cm). The Stab 2 Tower Speaker Stand rests on a base made of sheet steel with a satin finish. The base (300 x 250 x 10 mm, 10 x 12 x 0.5 inch) has adjustable spikes.
The stand itself consists of three anodized aluminum columns, measuring 40mm in diameter, and is filled with a damping material. The columns, which support the speaker shelf made of solid ash wood - stained red or black and hand-polished - have Gregitek's de-coupling system of "planetary balls". These are made of brass with balls made of anodized aluminum.
There's more to the system than meets the eye - the underside of the speaker shelf reveals a large suspended chromium plated steel disc, which is a special design only available from Gregitek. Its purpose is to dissipate vibration, and the result is astonishing. The disc serves as "dynamic damper" by reacting in the opposite phase to the vibrations entering the platform and canceling these vibrations out.
Below is a comparison between the Stab 2 Tower Speaker Stands and conventional speaker stands used as support for the Sonus Faber mini-diffusors. The test frequency used was 60 Hz.
Notice how the noise spectrum of the Stab 2 Tower Speaker Stands is much cleaner and has a lower noise level than when the conventional speaker stands were used. Test results courtesy of videohifi.com.
