For those who know that your treasured Magnepan can look and sound betterThe
Magna Riser 1.7 - 1.6 Designer Series
and who feel that good is not enough and who want to cross new musical thresholds.
is a limited production stand
specifically designed to effortlessly retrofit to your Magnepan using
your speakers existing rear mounting holes. You simply unscrew the
factory feet and then insert one of the provided mounting bolts and
fasten the screw through the new stand bracket on the back of your
speaker to complete the installation of your new precision designed
Replacing the original speaker feet addresses areas that
keep the speaker from the levels of sonic excellence that it is truly

wet sanded. More than twenty man hours goes into the cutting, machining, fitting and finishing of each set.These are well thought out and executed stands that offer a combination of greatn looms, stability and improved sonics. On the basis of hours spent in the finishing process...these
stands are a true bargain offering value with upscale looks and sonic
that allows your speaker to obtain added levels of which it is inherently capable but not fully realized with the factory stands .
When used with the supplied thermally treated jumper wires ( cryogenically treated) that replace the solid factory resistor bars the sound becomes more sophisticated, refined
and engaging.No...you will not confuse your speaker with a fifty thousand dollar pair..butfor
the modest investment you may just find less of a desire to upgrade
immediately and you might find yourself listening longer and more
enjoyably at times and in an audiophile world where some spend thousands
for small improvements in sound...these stands offer a lot for a modest
We are audiophiles who have owned some of the most
