Kanto has rolled out a pair of high-quality speaker stands it said can help clarify your sound system’s audio, isolate vibration and even organize some of your cable clutter. You can get the Kanto SX Series Floor Speaker Stands in two sizes: 22 inches high and 26 inches high.

Kanto SX Series Speaker Floor Stands

The new Kanto SX Series Speaker Floor Stands project an understated appearance and come in black or white colors. They can accommodate a wide variety of speaker sizes — up to 40 pounds each. The stands offer vibration isolation, cable management and other useful features.

Kanto said its exclusive isolation system “decouples the stands from the floor for class-leading audio performance.” Two top plates are included to accommodate a wide range of speaker sizes. Foam padding for additional sound dampening is optional.

The heavy-duty base plates are fitted with Kanto’s custom-designed isolation system.

The spikes can be adjusted from the top of the base, making it easy to level the stands. A bullseye level is included. The heavy base plates ensure stability and lower the stand’s resonance for improved sound quality.

“We developed a bespoke isolation system for the SX Series that nestles into hexagonal holes in the base of the stands,” said Jason Zavarella, Kanto product manager. “It consists of a custom-molded silicon bushing mated to a cast-metal holster. The assembly allows the black-oxide-coated carpet spikes to support the stands without physically touching the base. With no metal-on-metal contact, users can be sure that any vibration that somehow did not get damped through sheer mass of the stand will not reach your floor or enter the room.”

Cable management, stability

Kanto SX Series stands include a cable-management channel so you can conceal speaker cables. The channel can accommodate several thick cables, the company said.

The stands are supplied with bags that can be filled with material (substrate) of the user’s choice to provide added weight and stability.

Kanto SX Series speaker stands carry a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Price: $349.99 per pair (22-inch model) or $399.99 per pair (26-inch model)
