Very detailed and transparent system. I've been wanting the Selah Tempestas for a while and finally bought a pair. They are on speaker stands that I built myself. Just two cinder blocks cemented together with formica covering all the sides. I wanted the Sound Anchor stands but didn't feel like spending $700. I have some Blu tack between the monitor and stands.
Nice setup! I almost bought a pair of those Selahs. They seem like a great speaker for the $!
Your whole setup looks nice! I was using cinder blocks as stands too but realized that they were ringing in my instance. Switching them out for some proper stands eliminated a nasty midbass hump that I was getting. Next time you are listening to your set-up, go put an ear flush against one of the speaker stands and see what you hear. In my case, the entire cinder block resonates the sound escaping the speaker cabinet (which in turn is adding an ugly coloration to the sound).
Yes, they are Herbie's sand I believe that is the model. Frankly, I never really paid attention enough to see if they made a difference. I just had then and there them on. Sorry, I know that's not what you wanted to hear but that's the truth. Lol
