Here is a brief report on the newly arrived Skylan stands for the Dulcets. My system is a well warmed in Nait 5i /Naim CD5x. Formerly, the Dulcets stood on a well reputed brand of good value stands which had some damping material in the 4 metal vertical supporting tubes of about 1 inch in diameter; 26" high. I'd always thought the Dulcets were doing well on these.
The Skylans are a version of the company's 2 post stand, customized to 28" height and top plate sized for Dulcets . Each post is a hollow square tube, with rounded corners, designed to mass load with fine sand, around the threaded rod joining top and bottom plate through each tube.. Without careful weighing, I'd estimate each stand took about 30lb of fine sand, give or take. The result looks very sleek and well proportioned with the Dulcets. Certainly, the end product is much heavier than my older stands. I'll try to get my technically adept son to help provide pics.
The results are dramatic and quite delightful. The entire system sounds bigger, and more powerful, with no loss of delicacy, detail and timbre; more richness to bass and mids, more air to the highs. The speakers display greater nuance of dynamics; the different levels of volume and intensity to voice and instrument. The ceiling of the soundstage has been nicely raised, formerly a limitation of my system. I think many would be astonished at what a good small monitor can do on these stands.
Most of all, the music just sounds more alive. In short, it is the equivalent of a major and well placed component upgrade. This for less than $250 Canadian, shipped. My hat is off to Noel at Skylan. And to Moray James who posted here and tipped me off.
Other models for other speakers, including De Capos, too.
