RE: Skylan or Sound anchors for Harbeth

Since I recently went through this exercise, I will share with you what I had posted over on the Harbeth Forum. Cheers !

"I recently made the swap from a pair of "Foundation Stands" (as designed by the Canadian Distributor - Planet of Sound Distribution) to a pair of Skylan Stands 4P-24 for my M30's and all I can say is HOLY CRAP !! The difference was FAR from subtle ! I had really been enjoying my M30's, but to be blunt, I wasn't *HEARING THEM*, or perhaps I should correctly say, NOT hearing them. The Skylan's (loaded up with about 21kg of kitty litter between the pair) have totally liberated the M30's.
The sound is now much more focused, breaths much better, bass is better defined, and articulated, the mids are now VERY holographic, and the highs are ethereal.
So.. if you think that proper support isn't mandatory to getting the best from your Harbeths I suggest you try it for yourself. This has been a total game changer for me. While I was expecting there to be "differences" in the sound between the 2 stands, given what I had read here, and what Alan has suggested that any reasonable support will provide decent results, I was NOT expecting such dramatic changes, and certainly not such "across the board" awesome steps forward.
This has been some of the best $$ spent on money, well, short of buying the M30 in the first place .. LOL..
Noel has a great product with the Skylan Stands .. HIGHLY recommended ! "
