Our take on the Audioengine DS1 Desktop Speaker Stands for A2

by Ralph Graves
Audioengine

The Audioengine DS1 (ADS1) silicone rubber stands are ideally suited for desktop speakers. The soft stands absorb vibrations from your speakers, improving sound quality. Each DS1 also angles the speaker upwards 15° so the music is directed at your ears for better clarity.

The DS1s are designed for use with the Audioengine A2, but work equally well with other makes of desktop speakers.

Highlights:

  • designed for use with Audioengine A2 desktop speakers
  • compatible with other desktop speakers
  • soft, silicone rubber
  • angles speaker upwards 15°
  • 3-7/8"W x 1-7/8"H x 6-1/4"D
  • warranty: 3 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Essential for the A2

Written By Ned, Southfield, MI on Sunday, February 02, 2014

Perfect for the Audioengine A2 to get proper angle for listening when used as a desktop system.
Pros:
Nice grip to speaker and desktop.
Cons:
Too bad these are not offered as a package deal with the A2 (not a separate item purchase).

Great Addition to Speakers

Written By jg, Johns Creek, GA on Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These are a great addition to the Audioengine speakers. Yes, it is a shame that they cost extra. I found them help with the sound of the speakers and protect the bottom of the speakers as well.
Pros:
Nicely make rubber type stands. Very secure fitting on desk and no worry rubber type material
Cons:
They cost extra

Desktop speaker stands

Written By Sci-fi guy, Florida on Wednesday, January 01, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I originally wanted to use these speaker stands to add some height to the center channel speaker on my home theater system. They did not work, but they work marvelously when they are used for their original purpose. They fit my desktop speakers perfectly, and they add just the right amount of height to point the speakers up to ear level.
Pros:
The speaker stands are functional, attractive, and inexpensive.
Cons:
None

Noticeable difference.

Written By Dan, Rockville, MD on Tuesday, March 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Feels solid and substantial. When used with the A2's, makes an outstanding speaker system even more so. Noticeable difference in definition. The angle aims the speakers towards your ears when you're sitting at your desk. And makes the speakers better able to fill a small room when you crank up the volume.
Pros:
solid and substantial
Cons:
none

Quality addition to a pair of AudioEngine A2s

Written By MylesS, Denver, PA on Saturday, March 12, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
A little while ago, I purchased a pair of AudioEngine A2 speakers for my
desktop computer. I took out an old pair of bookshelf speaker stands and put
them on either side of my desk so that I wouldn't have to take up valuable space
with these speakers.

The one downside of it all was that the A2s didn't meet my ears... that means
everything was very slightly dull. I noticed a subtle difference whenever I would
hunch over to put my ears in the tweeter's path when compared to simply sitting
up above.

This product is a great way to fix the problem of not being right in the tweeter
sweetspot. They seem to be quite stable as well, even on my current stands.
The only down side is that these make my Audioengine A2s look a bit awkward
by being on top of DS1 stands that are on top of bookshelf speaker stands. I
can deal with the awkwardness, however, because hte sound is subtly
improved.

Improvements:
(All improvements are verrry slight, but noticeable if you listen closely. Keep in
mind that these improvements are only if the speakers didn't actually hit your
ears before the DS1 stands. If you were already in the sweetspot all along, you
won't really notice any change at all)

- Small improvement in stereo imaging
- improvement in trebles
- very small improvement in bass definition (Might just be me though)

Overall, I'm quite happy with these angled stands.
