        Magna Riser Magnepan 1.7/1.6 Stand and Deliver Stands -

         With cryogenically treated replacement jumper wires     (introductory price)

 Our newest introduction to the Magna Riser line is now available for purchase after a six month design process.

The  Magna Riser 1.7 - 1.6 Stand and Deliver stands are a limited production design 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 stands.

Magna Risers are for those :

               Who know their speakers can look and sound better and:
                                        For whom good is not enough

This design offers sonic gains because of the combination of mass loading techniques, resonance tuning and use of replacement jumper wires...a systems approach of sorts that helps move you more into the musical moment of a performance.

Our newest design is specifically fabricated and tuned for the 1.7/1.6 and is the result of about a years development. These stands are the culmination of extended listening sessions where various prototypes were tested. Everything from various metal types, metal gauges, and alternate component parts construction materials were compared, combined and evaluated. This model represents an optimized set of design choices that yielded the best blend that helps maximizes the performance of your speaker while retaining the most balanced and authentic musical signature. This model also includes spikes that may help in situations with thick carpeting or rugs.

The geometry has been optimized for added stability by choosing a wider foot pad with extended length while retaining a cosmetic look that is upscale...the finish is in a high gloss grand piano ( liquid black ). It is an extremely durable powder coating which though costly is beautiful and long lasting. (Our metals finisher works with world class race car teams and his finish is almost a work of art in itself). I drive more than three hours total to drop off and pick up these stands from the coater and even hand pick the bulk metal from our supplier to insure the best possible cosmetics before I hand burnish and take the stands over for three additional prep stages before coating.

We are audiophiles from the lunatic fringe and I will not release a design unless I am convinced it offers improved performance, a more upscale look and genuine value. In this case theses stands are hundreds less than other brands. Our margins are small and bulk metal prices are rising so this set is offered at an introductory price that may not again be available. Each pair is precision crafted one pair at a time and availability is very limited. They are made more out a desire to share my love of sound and design discoveries with other Magnepan owners than anything.

In a world where some audiophiles pay thousands for small improvements in sound Magna Risers offer a lot of return for the modest investment.

Magna Risers are sold on a money back guarantee if the buyer notifies us of the intention to return the stands within one week of delivery. Returns should be made in the original box with the stands in the condition they were shipped. Return shipping costs are at the buyers expense. 

With the dozens of Magna Risers sold not one owner has ever failed to hear the sonic upgrades our designs provide.

I have outstanding feedback on US Audio Mart, eBay and Audiogon; you can purchase with confidence.

Shipment is via the US Postal Service and is a flat $24.50 to anywhere in the continental US. Shipment is only to the US lower 48 at this time. A signature is required for delivery to protect your purchase from theft unless you opt not to have a signature in which case your tracking information serves as proof of delivery. I normally ship within 24 hrs. of notification of Pay Pal receipt of payment which is required at the time of purchase.

Please note that this listing is for one pair of 1.7/1.6 speaker stands only.
