Audioengine A5+ Troubles

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I finally decided to get a pair of A5s after listening to their godly sound in an audio shop.
But the problem is I cant listen to them in their full glory without the speaker stands.
And my room desk just doesnt allow any place to put those stands. Here's a pic of my desk so you can get a better idea.

450


Any suggesions on how to solve this problem? The stands extend from the floor to about waist height.
Are there any speaker stands that are shorter and can be placed on the table top without compromising quality?

I do not know if this will solve your problem:

http://audioengineusa.com/DS2-Desktop-Stand-Pair

This is made specifically for these speakers. Is it what were you searching or do you want something to lift the speakers rather than incline them?

I'm looking more for something to lift them. I'm not sure if those desktop stands will work as well as speaker stands since they still run flush to the table.

maybe something like this but shorter.

This shop has shorter versions, but what I want to know is if the length of the stand affects the quality of sound produced?

Edit: do different stands have significant effects on the speakers? like will different material stands have different impact on
the ability of the speakers? or are the differences negligible? How do you judge the quality of the stands?

Maybe this can help you:

http://www.silentpcreview.com/AudioEngine_A2_Little_Big_Speakers

In 2008, Mike Chin from Silent PC Review reviewed the Audioengine 2 (A2) and he noted a great increase in sound with inclination of those speakers. See page 3.

"Angled up and in, the A2s sounded mysteriously better". (MikeC)

According What Hi-Fi, the A5 also benefit from a stand but it was not clear about what kind of.

But I reiterate I do not know if this applies in your case.
