I’ve been a fan of isoacoustics speaker stands for years. They made all of my speakers sound better. The original plastic stands aren’t the prettiest and raise the speakers a few to several inches. In my current apartment with vinyl flooring I haven’t been using the L8R-200 stands with my Statiks out of laziness. I had felt pads under them to make it easier to slide them around.
I stumbled onto a used set of Gaia III at a price I couldn’t pass up on. When I first tried to install them they pulled the m8 nuts right out of the base board. (The nuts were factory installed by AV123). So I had to improvise. I picked up a couple sets of outriggers from Parts Express and screwed them in. They even have m8 threading. Then added the Gaias.
I thought the Statiks were great before but holy crap! Soundstage dropped back a few feet and focus improved so much they sound like different speakers! Highly recommended!
