Arcici was founded by high-end audio industry veteran Ray Shab. Arcici made its name by producing a popular stand for the legendary Quad ESL-63 loudspeakers.
The Arcici stands raise the Quads over 16" off the floor. Also, the Arcicis reinforce the frames, holding the speakers at the base and clamping to each side with setscrews top and bottom.
You get other benefits, too. With the Arcici stands, the Quads become very stable. It would be hard to tip them over, which is otherwise a real hazard with the Quads, especially if mounted on the S&D stands with little kids or large dogs running around the house.
The Arcici stands change the appearance of the Quads rather dramatically. The speakers look more 1986 and less 1963. The sound is affected, but not dramatically; it is, however, a definite improvement. Raising the speakers does raise the soundstage, and helps the Quads fill the room with music. The Quads can use all the help they can get in this regard, since they don't play particularly loud. Bass is tighter and the overall sound has a little more clarity and definition. An altogether worthwhile improvement!
Condition is good with a few areas that might require a little black touch up if you are a perfectionist.
Note: These stands are 51" in length and cannot be broken down to be any smaller for shipping.
