Paradigm speakers are built to strict standards. Speaker enclosures use acoustically inert high-density hardboard and strategically located radial braces as needed to limit unwanted resonances, increase enclosure stiffness and prevent ballooning effects. Acoustical damping material eliminates internal standing waves. Low-diffraction grills minimize interference from enclosure edges. High-velocity, low-noise ports allow maximum bass efficiency with minimum turbulence distortion.
Even so, when bookshelf-size speakers are placed on a floor or against a wall, their sonic output becomes connected to your floor or walls. This results in sound that is muddy, distorted and lacking in clarity. This type of placement also causes sound to transfer from your audio/video furniture, as well as to other audio and home theater components, further reducing overall sonic performance. Not only does the speaker's sound suffer, but neighbors and other family members will as well. How? When the speaker's sound gets into floors and walls, others will hear it almost as loudly as you do.
The solution is to isolate your speakers from floors and walls, essentially disconnecting the speakers from your room. High-performance speaker stands are essential in any high-quality audio/home theater/gaming system. Paradigm speaker stands elevate and isolate speakers from floors and walls. Sound is clearer and cleaner with much better imaging and a greater sense of realism. For dramatically superior sound and unsurpassed value, look no further than Paradigm High Performance Stands.
The LS-30 Floorstanding Speaker Stands are ideal for use with the Cinema 70 and Cinema 90 satellites, as well as the Cinema ADP surrounds. Designed to position speakers at ear level in a solidly constructed and elegant product, they ensure the best performance possible. Each 39-inch-tall speaker stand is made of a steel tube post with end cap and weighted die-cast aluminum base for increased stability and resonance control. Holes at the top of the center post and base allow for hidden wiring. The included adjustable locking spikes and optional self-adhesive rubber feet help keep speakers in place. Available in black and silver.
