Custom Design's FS 104 Signature speaker stand design has proven itself over many years to be the ideal speaker stand for many loudspeakers. It is known for its abilities to combine bass control with neutral impact while not taking away other desirable attributes of a loudspeaker. When deployed in the service of Harbeth speakers, this tried and true bespoke design produce sound with good bass timing and open, precise stereo imaging that is exciting and dynamic. This design avoids the dullness or closed-in sound usually encountered with Harbeth loudspeakers on some of the other clunky stands out there.
The FS 104 Signature variation for Harbeth speakers benefits from the stands original bespoke design which includes a very rigid 3" (76mm) ERW BS EN 10305-3 center column and four 1" satellite support columns tied together by unique ‘H’ shaped top and bottom plates that together form a tight box frame structure with no unnecessary mass.
The loudspeaker is supportred by a top plate fabricated from Custom Design's Acoustic Steel™ which is a sandwich of two steel plates joined together by a resonance energy absorbing polymer. The absorbs vibrations from both the loudspeaker cabinet and the stand itself, turning them into heat that is then channelled down the stand away from the speaker - rather than introuducing unwanted colorations in the sound.
The unique ‘H’ shaped Acoustic Steel™ top plate is not just decorative. It is designed to better fit the loudspeaker cabinet footprint, putting the satellite columns closer to the corners of loudspeaker, where their support can be the most effective, particularly in the case of the Harbeth speaker cabinets. The satellite columns of can be finished in Black, Chrome or Brushed Chrome.
The center column of the Harbeth FS 104 Signature speaker stand can be filled with Inert Filler to tune the bass response of the speaker to your room and your preference.
Simply put, Harbeth Loudspeakers just look good and sound the best on these stands.
