Atacama - Moseco XL - Speaker Stands
Introducing the flagship of the Moseco range, the Moseco XL speaker stands are supplied as matched pairs and feature a substantial 5mm thick, 200mm wide by 275mm deep carbon steel top plate specifically designed to support large bookshelf style speakers. Four domed isolation gel pads are also included with each top plate to protect and dampen the cabinet of the supported speaker. The XL500 has a overall height of 520mm excluding floor spikes and gel pads.
For maximum stability, Moseco XL stands have been developed around a triple carbon steel tube configuration. These tubes consist of large twin rear 50mm diameter poles matched to a single over-sized front 75mm diameter pole, all painted in an attractive Satin Black finish. All three tubes are designed to accept Atabite SMD 7.5HD filler which will add mass and reduce ringing (two packs per stand would, under most circumstances, be sufficient).
Moseco XL also features hand finished 40mm thick Bamboo base panels which, as well as being aesthetically pleasing, has resonance dampening acoustic benefits when compared to the more traditional metal or glass materials used in speaker stand base plate design. To maximize the performance of the Bamboo, the three steel tubes are located into individually recessed holes that allows improved lateral support, so aiding rigidity and stability.
Each Bamboo base panel comes complete with four adjustable 8mm Bright Zinc Plated steel spikes with locking nuts to help with leveling and to add an additional level of isolation ( two packs of Atacama HD-S spike shoes can be purchased separately should you require the stands to be positioned on a delicate floor covering).
Two height options are available; a choice of either 515mm or 615mm can be specified (excluding spikes and isolation gel pads).
For additional stability and sound dampening, the Atacama Mass Loading Plate pack can be used with Moseco XL.
All Moseco XL Speaker Stands are manufactured in the UK.
Please Note - Bamboo is a natural material, so some slight colour variance between panels will be present and the colours will mature over time or if left in direct sunlight. This slight colour variation will also apply if you attempt to match a pair of Moseco speaker stands to a Atacama bamboo based equipment support.
Atacama Audio source all Bamboo used in their products directly from sustainable forests.
- Moseco XL base finish upgrade available in medium or dark bamboo
In order to get the best possible sound from your speaker stands, it is reccomended that the main columns are filled with a high density inert filler .This will reduce ringing and give a sonically dead platform from which to position bookshelf style speakers. By adjusting the amount of filler used, you can experiment to find the optimum amount of filler to suit your speakers .Featuring new zinc coated micro-discs, the NEW UPGRADED Atabite inert filler now gives increased density to volume over the old Atabite inert filler and has a uniformed particulate size giving consistant sonic performance. The Zinc coating reduces any oxidisation and degradation and enhances the visual aesthetics.
PLEASE NOTE- Atabites are supplied by weight, not volume. (7.5 KG tubs). Some settling of contents may occur in transit.
Sonic results will depend on speaker stand positioning, type of speaker, room size, type of electronics and cabling, listening position and personal taste. However, as a general rule filling the stands approximately two thirds full generally gives the best results.
Mass Loading Plate
Designed to fit out of sight within the base plate of CC01, CC02, DUO, Nexus or HMS1.1 speaker stands and underneath the Bamboo base panel for the Moseco range,the Mass loading Base Plate pack adds 2.15 kg to each stand increasing the sound dampening and raising the stability of each support.
Made in the UK from Carbon Steel and comes painted in Satin black.
