Lateral Audio Stands
performance audio stands, hear more music
An audio stand directly affects the perfomance of an audio component and the audio system, it becomes it's foundation and influences all components placed upon it. Both analogue and digital source components, known to be very sensitive, and amplification components all show significant performance improvements when placed and coupled to excellent audio stand and surface. The total reduction of vibration presents further performance benefits of the interconnecting audio and power cables by improving the dampening of materials and mechanical connections.
Lateral audio stands use a structure which is minimal, high in strength, grounded and critically dampened. Audio surfaces use premium materials and techniques which connect directly into it's structure, reducing and eliminating any excessive materials which do not improve the sound. By filtering low to high frequencies the designs absorb and manage the audio energy fedback from the sound and also decouple in a controlled manner further reducing low level vibration entering into the audio components. A Lateral Audio stand also reduces levels of EMI / RFI by the selection of audio proven non-magnetic materials, thereby benefitting nearby power and signal cables, reducing the total levels of the system.
As an audiophile and professional engineering designer of vibration affected products, and the analysis of high strength to weight structures, have enabled these foundations to be long term research fields inherently influencing the engineering principles used in the audio stand designs...indeed less really is more.

Designed for listening and the ability to portray musical intgerity, message, depth and clarity.
The LAS-4 series enables audio components to perform, from entry level with the Integral to high end musical performances with the Concert.
The Integral design is the basis for the range, with a richness and depth to it's sound. It can be upgraded for future needs with the Concert Isolation platform.
The Integral PLUS includes the Concert Isolation platform, upon purchase, and so has the extra depth of performance that the Concert displays, but with an all natural materials appearance.
The Concert has extra features and maximises the performance of the top tier for source component. The CNC machined front to the top tier is available silver or black anodised, and also includes the LAS-Counterpoint set which are precision CNC machined high grade stainless steel, dual use for carpet or hard floor with the included floor protector.
Available in 2 tier, 3 tier, 4 tier Compact , 4 tier , 5 tier
The large 4 and 5 tier stands have the additional decoupled upper two tiers.

HiFi+ Review July 2019
The Discovery stand is a very surprising performer, evolving from the Integral design it has many of the key features taken from the LAS-4 series of stands.
It is simplified yet has a visual appearance that is modern audio and setups, colour brings new energy too. Available with black, white or red lower audio surfaces.
The 3 tier stand has proportions that set it low visually between the speakers, 2 or 3 stands together makes for a wide setup with performance.

Available in 2 tier, 3 tier and 4 tier Compact
The LAS-AV is a high performance audio, in an AV width. It was important that an AV design maintained the performance of the LAS-4 range. It has a 100% open front design for full component access and visually clean lines, with technical features that make this possible.
Concert isolation platforms can be added in every component position.

A single level audio stand with a high audio performance and a high weight capacity.
LAS-Amp typically used for very large and esoteric stereo amplifiers or as a pair with mono amplfiers. A very useful addition to large audio setups.
The LAS-Amp contains many technical features that enable and provide an audio surface with a very low noise floor. Research and audio tests shows amplfiers to be extremely sensitive to vibration and the LAS-Amp enables subtleties and natural renditions to appear.
For standard depth amplifier LAS-Amp
For deep large amplfiers LAS-AmpX
