The Story Behind These Remarkable Stands
Pangea Audio gave us the story behind their remarkable new DS300 and LS200 speaker stands. It's so good we thought we ought to share it.
"With the growing popularity of soundbars and on-wall speakers, the market for speaker stands has dramatically declined. Searching many Asian electronics shows, we found it difficult to find a manufacturer building steel stands. Wood, yes. Steel, no. We wanted steel. All the usual factories were now producing LCD mounts or LCD stands.
"Makings steel speaker stands, it seemed, was becoming a lost art.
"Finally, in the last show we visited late last year, in a separate room away from the main displays, in a poorly lit corner we discovered a small booth offering steel audio racks and speaker stands. Their signs were in Chinese. No one in the booth spoke English. We smiled and pointed at what we liked. They nodded and smiled back.
"Then our translator arrived. Yes, we build steel speaker stands said the woman who owned the factory. In fact, they had made them for British brands like Target Audio and Standesign. They seemed to know what they were doing. Their stands had all the features we like. Steel construction. Spiked feet. Baked-on scratch resistant powder coat finish.
"We ordered samples. They were just what we wanted. Tolerances were tight so it would be easy to fill the tubes with sand or steel shot. We haggled a bit over packaging. We needed these heavy stands to survive the UPS and FedEx-man. [Sorry UPS & FedEx guys!] Finally we placed our order and here they are!"
Rigid All-Steel Design
The rigid all-steel design provides solid support and stability which make the most of your speaker's sonic capabilities. The sand-fillable or lead shot-fillable front support lets you add mass to your LS200 for greater mass loading and resonance control.* The rear support has holes in it for hiding your speaker cable. Adjustable carpet-piercing spiked feet make set up simple, as does the easy assembly.
The top plate size is 6" by 6" and the base measures 10" by 12".
The LS200 has a scratch-resistant baked-on textured black finish that looks great – and lasts and lasts. A range of heights lets you choose the stand that best suits your speakers, room layout, and listening preferences. Choose 24", 28", 32", or 36" models.
*Note: To fill with sand, first pour in one inch of kitty litter to seal the bottom. Then fill the rest of the tube with sand.

|So Much Better for So Much Less|
I dont know how Pangea does it. I bought speaker stands years ago from a well-known British company, paid much more, and these are so much better for so much less money.

|Well built, very rigid|
Cant think of a stand that offers more value for the money. Very impressed by the build quality and rigidity. Will keep speaker motionless improving bass detail and extension.

|easy to assemble....sturdy.....look great|
ordered on a monday and received them on Wednesday. the packaging was very good as each piece was individually wrapped. very easy to assemble...took about 15 minutes. really didnt need the instructions. the stands are very sturdy and easily handle my 11 LB speakers. speaker wire is hidden within one of the posts and was easy to thread thru.....used pliers to grasp and pull thru the top. speakers sound and look great on these stands. Very impressed with the quality of the stands and how solid they feel. well worth the extra $$ ...and free shipping to boot........
