About
The business began as a partnership in 1969 as a sub-contract engineering company specializing in high quality aerospace work and became a supplier to prestigious companies such as Rolls Royce, GEC and British Aerospace. The business was incorporated in 1976 and continued in this industry until the late eighties. From the very early days, it had always been the ambition of the then Managing Director, Mr Ron Sambell, to manufacture our own commercial product. The sub-contract market had always been unpredictable and by producing our own branded products it was clear that we could plan our future more easily and therefore be in control of our own destiny, rather than rely on others. The early products had moderate success, but in 1987 the company began to develop an innovative design of Hi-Fi speaker stand. The initial reaction to the design from local specialist retailers was very encouraging, and manufacturing began that year on a very small scale as part of a pilot marketing campaign. Atacama had always been a manufacturer of metal and glass products, but in 2011 the next major development happened when Atacama invested in a new plant to process wood and in particular Bamboo composite. With this new material it created even greater design opportunities whilst offering our customers an ecological alternative to traditional hardwoods. In 2012 & 2013 the Eris Eco 5 won Equipment Support of the year, followed by the Evoque Eco 60-40 and Moseco Speaker Stand in 2014.

Atacama SLX Series Speaker Stands

  • Sale
  • Regular price £149.00


The SLX Series is our professional range of speaker stands available in a wide range of height options and caters for when a larger top plate is required.

SLX Series are supplied in a Satin Black paint finish with Silver Metallic or Diamond White as a cost option.

 

 

Each pair of SLX stands include new 5mm thick laser cut carbon steel base plates, eight BZP 8mm adjustable floor spikes featuring stainless steel detailed top caps and upgraded High Load Trapezoidal (HLT) Isolation Gel Pads for the top plates.

We recommend that each pair are mass loaded with Atabites in order to maximize their sonic potential (see below for quantity guidance and recommendations on the amount of mass filler to use).

Floor spikes and HLT Isolation Gel pads are included with each pair of stands, with the option of adding Atabite mass loading filler, top spikes and spike shoes if required.

As these speaker stands use isolation spikes, two sets of four Atacama HD-S (Nickel finish) spike shoes are recommended to protect delicate floor coverings.

Single stands can be supplied if required; please contact your local Atacama stockist or the Atacama sales department on 01455 283251 for pricing and availability (UK only).

SLX speaker stands are designed and manufactured in the UK.

Atabite quantity recommendation

Below are stated the recommended number of tubes to share between each pair of speaker stands. All vertical poles should be equally filled. Amounts are approximate and will not necessarily completely fill the tubes. It is suggested that you experiment with the exact amount to achieve the best sonic results for your particular system setup as the speakers, room acoustics, cable loom, positioning of the speakers and hifi components will determine how much Atabite filler to use to get the best sound from your speakers.

As a general rule, approximately half to two thirds full gives the best results. If you find the speakers are lacking high end detail and sounding dull at the lower end that usually means you have overfilled the stands and will need to reduce the volume of Atabites in each stand.

 If the speakers are new, it is suggested that the exact amount of Atabites needed will best be determined once they are run in. Refer to your speaker instructions or contact the supplying retailer/ manufacturer for guidelines on running in recommendations.
