    The top plate is huge on that stand, I don't think you need to worry until there is an earthquake.

    enricoclaudio,
    What camera are you using? I'm guessing a digital SLR? Your pictures are nice and have great resolution.

    There is no way for the speaker to fall down or slip from those stands. The stand itself is 12 lb but after filled it with shot lead it's 22 lb. Also the speaker is 30 lb. BTW those stands are designed to hold 75 lb each.

    Not unless you and the wife practice your WWF moves on the couch. You have to decouple the speaker from the stand for reasons already stated. They will not fall off on their own, only if someone or some thing helps them.

    For me the dark color suits. I can only see it from the sides. From listening position I only see piano black.

    Can you say "PERFECT" color for your decor?

    I wanted to ask you..what is the story on the picture? Is that back lit? a screen? or just a great shot? It looks like a clean window at first glance. It really opens up the space.

    I'd say close enough match :)

    It is an original by Peter Lik printed on Fuji paper, and lit from the sides and top.

    http://www.lik.com/

    He is an incredible photographer, and the shot is eucalyptus trees from Maui.

    We go it in Maui last September as a matter of fact ... exactly 1 year ago today... 09/31/12.

    They do, and are generally referred to as "towers".

    That little bookie is absolutely fantastic and as beautiful in person as it is in pictures. They come with their own stands that bolt into the bottom of the bookie, much like the TOTL Dynaudio's do. Those Evo's are well above the price point of the LSiM's though. I haven't investigated their other speakers, but the vendor at LSAF said these started around the $3k mark, about $37,000 less than you'd pay for any other speaker they make. Those bookies had me thinking VERY hard about where I wanted to upgrade.

    Yes. Admittedly, they were on about a $30,000 chain, but they were superb. They were by far my favorite speaker at the show last year for three reasons: they were phenomenal in all respects, they would work in my room, and the price wasn't completely out of reach. I was very surprised with the dynamics they put out for two 4" drivers, but the spec sheet said they could handle 200 WPC, so I'm assuming they can move a bit more than your ordinary 4" driver.

    Well...the LSiM line is very nice and seem to do a lot right for less than what many other speakers cost. Pooraudiophiles like myself are saving pennies to buy a set but I don't know if it would be wise to make a dedicated mass loaded marble base stand for a speaker at this price point?

    Especially at the price of the 703.



    For a ton of cash there are these...for this kind of premium money, one would expect dedicated pedestals:

    Sonus Faber Guarneri Evolution - $22K ($20K speakers, $2K Dedicated Pedestals...massive, enhanced decoupling, with a marble base)

    Yeah I know. I'd have to hear each in my system to make a choice to be honest. I REALLY enjoyed those Evo's.
