            They are solidly built. They look great. They feel substantial. And the lift mechanism is smooth, easy to operate, and feels very sturdy. It's a shame Blue Sky is discontinuing making these. Get them while you can!

            Comments about Blue Sky International The Stand - Adjustable Nearfield Monitor Speaker Stand:

            Currently holding my speakers, living in California I rest easy knowing these things are rock solid. This stand is so much wider than any other I've seen, and because the stand legs are low profile they hide very easily and stay out of the way. The raising and lowering is sturdy and fluid, only complaint is the price and that you need to buy a separate plate at $ a pop to hold the speakers. I personally like that this company does not subscribe to the snake oil of other audio file companies. For instances, with heavy high quality steel construction, adding sand does nothing. I also wish they had some cable management that you could run through, but a very small and nitpicky suggestion.

              Comments about Blue Sky International The Stand - Adjustable Nearfield Monitor Speaker Stand:

              My search for stands for my nearfield monitors has been long and arduous! These stands fulfilled all of my requirements:

              1. Aesthetically attractive and minimallist
              2. Adjustable Height and monitor angle
              3. Sturdy and well built
              4. Acoustically sound and non-resonant
              5. Fit my current monitors (Mackie HR824mkII)
              6. Adaptable to future monitor upgrades

              That these stands are well suited to my needs and reasonably priced made their purchase a "no brainer". They may be slightly more expensive than other stands, but as the man once said, "you get what you for". In this case, you get more than you pay for! If your chosen monitors do not utilize the mounting hole pattern that fits these stands, Blue Sky makes a universal mounting plate that will work with just about any nearfield.

              These stands even got the approval of my acoustician. Highly recommended for the serious studio owner or home recording enthusiast alike!

              Comments about Blue Sky International The Stand - Adjustable Nearfield Monitor Speaker Stand:

              Studio monitor stands seem to come in two types – low cost and shaky or high cost and ugly except for the elegant Blue Sky The Stand.

              The Stand is a premium priced stand that combines good looks with steady support and adjustability.

              The Stand, generically named, can hold near-field monitors up to 80 lbs each. I'm not sure if I'd go put them to that test, although they are very stable at 30 lbs.

              For most powered studio monitors, The Stand can position the monitor height between 33″ and 45″, on any horizontal plane and vertically plus or minus 20 degrees. That should look after most situations in a home or project studio.

              You put one foot on the cast iron base and simply lift the monitor to the desired height. At each 3/4″ increment, there is an audible click which is locking the inner and outer cylinders.

              It's quite simple and easy and felt secure with a 30 lb Klein + Hummel 0 300 monitor on the stand.

              To move the monitor down, you have to lift the inner cylinder to its maximum height and push it gently to the bottom of its travel. At that point you lift up to the desired height.

              When the stand and monitor are installed in a tight spot, returning the monitor to the lowest setting may require moving things out of the way.

              The Stand comes with a main bracket for easy installation of Blue Sky monitors, for which it was designed.

              Blue Sky Monitors have mounting brackets on the bottom which screw into the main bracket.

              The bracket allows + or – 20 degrees of angle if you want to aim the speakers downward for instance.

              There is an optional bracket for mounting other monitors that provides a wide base plate and safety strap. The Stands are well made. The cast iron bases are perfectly flat. In case your floor is slightly uneven, adjustable rubber feet can take up the slack. You can also install feet for carpet although they are not supplied.

              I was impressed by the quality of the manufacturing. The base and cylinders came in two boxes. Assembly was well explained and easy.

              Other than a tiny bit of play between the two cylinders, there is virtually no side to side movement in The Stands supporting 30 lb studio monitors.

              It's the first time I have felt confident with mounting my K+H O 300s.
