Like maybe when? 

 

AVForums here in the UK (not to be confused with AVSForums - several dealers post on there and said they just got their last shipments in. Waiting for more details but the rose gold driver colour is apparently what they use for anniversary models only, so expect that not to carry over to a production model. Still no idea on price. I'll post more details when they're posted by the people that actually know stuff, ha. I'm just recycling what they're telling others.

Another recycled news here .... i.e. nothing will change, except the 50 anniversary printing at the back of the speakers will be gone. But don't bank on this hearsay pls.

I can get a good deal on a bundle of 2 LS50 and a sonos connect:amp (I'd basically be paying 100EUR for the sonos device) - would that be sufficient to drive the LS50s?

I'm running these babies in my office setup, and even with sub-optimal speaker placement (20cm from back wall, sitting in a large windowsill with walls either side ) the sound is amazing. I can only imagine what they sound like setup properly.

 

Powered by the Burson Timekeeper, which is fed by  the Conductor, connected via the VLINK192.

 

My LCD-2s are getting very little usage now, and they're already an amazing match with the Conductor.

These are the closest speakers' version of my Grado RS1. fast, sparkling and smooth highs, with punchy lows. Oh, mids to die for. I may have said this, LS50 sounds unbearable when not matched with suitable stands and everything up the chain. I can't take the sound due to just a difference of a DAC's power cable. Changed a pair stands, and they sound fatiguing. With patience to tune, these can be your speakers for a long time. I have speakers numerous times more expensive, but there is a place for these.

Can anyone recommend good micro stands (for desktop/shelf usage)?

You don't need to get a micro stand. Get quality coupling or isolating support, including spike-base or vibration absorbing structure. Look at Oyaide, Taoc, DH Cones/squares and such. They make "day and night" difference as they always say. It is true. But as usual, spend your money prudently, I would suggest.

Thanks Rick. I had found these:

 

http://hometheaterreview.com/mapleshade-time-correcting-maple-bedrock-speaker-stands-reviewed/

 

The link you sent, are you recommending those over all of the available brands you listed? And did you mean the stand or just the feet? :¬)

post #114 of 146

I have not personally tried these, but they seem properly made, and affordable.

I have no particular recommendation, but Oyaide, Taoc and DH are known to be quite good. Depending on context as of most stuff. Those stuffs in the link are just some pictorial references.

 

The whole idea is to transfer all the vibrations away from the speakers as immediate and as much as possible. That gives the speakers best operating mode for best sound.

Man, what can I say. Thanks Lenni!

 

These arrived today: http://www.amazon.co.uk/IsoAcoustics-L8R155-Speaker-Stands-pair/dp/B008GOP79G

 

What a difference! Clarity & staging increased, treble sounds smoother. Bargain too, they were a lot cheaper than I expected them to be.

 

Awesome recommendation.

for small stands.

 

the store owner Dale is also a great guy to deal with

 

A bit overkill, but what I'm currently using. Plan to upgrade to the high end dyns one day

A no-brainer suggestion would be the IsoAcoustic range - check their site for a compatibility chart to match the right size stand with the speaker, although I'd imagine it'd be the middle sized ones (the L8R-155's).

I'll bet those 'Stand 6' stands would be perfect for LS50's.
