Hello everyone. Just joined the Omega speaker family by getting a pair of super 6 Alnicos and 20” Skylan 4-post stands, now filled with rice. These are the original Alnico monitors circa 2008. Really enjoying the sound using my 18wpc SE KT88 amp and an all tube preamp, both from Aric Audio. The tone, texture, and the “aliveness” of these speakers is truly exceptional. The question I have is what’s the common wisdom in how the speakers should sit on the stands. Do most folks couple the speakers with stands using something like Blue Tack or its better to isolate them using damping pucks of some sort. I’m not worried about tipping them over since they are in a semi dedicated listening room and we have no kids or pets, etc.
By the way, the workmanship of these speakers is incredible and even at almost 11 years old they literally look brand new, partly thanks to the previous owner. They have Wenge wood veneer on the sides, top and bottom, and front baffle and the back are Cherry. Beautiful contrast.
Oh, also does anyone know how different are the new/current Super Alnico Monitors from this older model? The drivers appear to be identical.
Thanks in advance.
