    Yup. That’s what the official announcement says.

    Are they doing a stand for ACC?


    This is not a Magico stand; it is a "custom Sound Anchors stand" (that is what the FB post says).
    Not the prettiest, but they make great stands and a lot of value for the money.

    Any consensus out there that this would have looked much better under A1?

    No. It doesn’t make any sense to have small speakers on a stand. Get full size speakers, taking up the same space, for better sound.

    They're so cute when they're little. Nice compact stand to give some isolation and tilt.

    Dizzie, I see the tilt, but what is being isolated and how is it being achieved?

    Paul Klipsch came out with the Hersey speaker which was named because it was considered Heresy to build such a small speaker considering his Klipshcorn, La Scala and Cornwall speakers. He also used a riser tilted back with the Heresy speakers. Is this Alon Wolfs version?

    Peter, I am not sure if there is any active isolation built in. It seems to me that eliminating contact between the bottom center of the speaker and the shelf or cabinet it is sitting on should provide some isolation. I fully acknowledge I may be wrong.
