  • Alternative stands or plinths for SCM Classic range

    I’ve got the some standard (from 1996) metal frame stands for my 100ASLs. These are obviously fine and do a job however it’s always bothered me that the mid unit is sitting just a bit low compared to my ears in my main listening seat. Furthermore I have some home pressure to improve the look ie to make the speaker look more like a floor-standing one. Trading to towers is not an option 😀

    So has anyone with classics been in this position of needing custom made stands/plinths to primarily raise the speaker height?

    I used a couple of solid oak side tables for mine, can’t remember where I got them from, but this sort of thing:

    Cheap, effective, and gets the midrange unit where it wants to be.

    Otherwise, Towersonic make some serious looking stands specially for ATCs, with a variety of feet/wheel options.

    But if I was looking now, and had the money, I would undoubtedly wait until Northward Audio released their stands. These are for 45s I think, but they will have models for 100s.

      Thank you Andy for all those links. Those Northwood Audio ones look funky! I think at the moment I will likely go the route of commissioning a local cabinet maker to create some plinths. Will be interesting to see how they will compliment the different wood finishes between the 100s and new plinths. I wish I had paid more attention in wood work classes now...

        Good luck! Don’t be frightened of getting them high enough so that the midrange unit is a bit above ear level. Change wives if you have to.

        Northward Acoustics are an extraordinary company. Big ATC fans. It’s worth following them on Facebook and digging around their website to see what a really high-end pro-install involves.
