No, my Isostands are rugged and stable, as if they were a big block of wood. It feels like each of them weighs around 20-25kg. I would not object if someone would want to put larger midfields on them, such as the dual woofer Dynaudio AIR 25, or the Geithain 901K washing machine. Only that they are a bit tall in their shortest setting, so monitors taller than 0.5m could have their tweeters pushed a bit too far up for a direct match with a seated mixing position.

Alright good to hear. I still have got no response to my email to Zaor about them trying to explain why I should buy their product. For me it is obvious.

If there was some superior scientific solution to this they should advertise it more...if they have put all this work and effort to make this solution and not explain that signification ?

Well thank you!

Right now I am try to look at the market, about monitor stand you can fill with sand, there seem to be more in the market, I guess cause they are lighter and easier to ship the metal stands which weigh 30kg and more.

Thanks. The Towersonic TS1B should be a near perfect fit for the HG3.

I use the TS1 filled with sand and my KS C-55 sit very stable on the top plate. I wanted to have a rock solid pair of stands and found them.

Ill most likely go for them myself. There is a shop here that stocks them. Im sure the weight is a non-issue. Site says it can hold Focal sm11s. They weigh 25kg.

well did you read the sound on sound thread I did link too ?
That is what worry me ? the thread did surprise me, that the metal can bend like that. and the monitors did not look super heavy either, very strange.

I got reply from Towersonic today, regarding HG3 and TS1b

"Dimensions:

45cm W x 34cm D , 16kg


the TS 1 B is correct:

but we would supply it with custom top plate to suit the HG3 , price
includes the customisation free of charge

£469.00 pair + VAt in the UK

- or no VAt to EU vat reg companies

- and no VAt if from outside the EU

prices + Fedex shipping .

If the budget allows, we also recommend the double core system.

TS 2C TB

£ 789.00 pair + vat etc.

remember our stands are full telescopic studio grade heavy duty stands !,
with high deadmass weight.



all stands are hand made and we have a 20 days waiting list ."

I just got Hjelmevolds custom TS-1Bs in the house and I would say you will do fine with that model. The top-plates on these meassure about 35x35cm which fit exactly between the rubber pads on my HG3s.

The pads make the monitors slope somewhat downwards so I might look into ordering some custom plates that will fit the whole base.

I am trying to contact Towersonic for a quote on custom top-plates but I keep getting this ".convert_chevrons($Config{'title'})."

Did you have any problems?

Hello there, yeah but TS2 looks more stable, and it is made for midsized monitors, I have had no problems to contact towersonic, they answer my questions etc. I have decided to buy the TS2 custom now. I will probably fill it with lead shot, it is about 2-3 times more heavy then sand.

Those look like 2 different stands to me. There are 2 different support configurations in those pics. Maybe there are 2 ways to align the supports.

Intersting you brought it up, did not thinka bout until now.
I hope myself can configure them..or if it s done in factory.

Anyway, what configuration do you think would work best for the HG3 ?

While the Configuration number 1 looks alot better and cooler the second configuration looks more stable ?

I like the first configuration too, and if the speakers are wider than they are deep, it would probably make sense to set them up like that. If the speakers are deeper than they are wide, then the second way would probably support better. It's probably very easy to configure them yourself, since there's probably a couple screws or recessed bolts holding the top plate and base on.

The stands are put together by the customer, IKEA style. If the holes are drilled, you can do the configuration you like.

I wouldn't worry though, the HG3s sit perfectly stable on just one support beam.
