An optional, dedicated, seven pillar stand has been specially designed for use with the Titan 505.  This high performance stand allows six of the seven pillars to be filled with the listener’s choice of material to dampen resonance. The top plate of the stand incorporates constrained layer damping to reduce resonance and the stand is bolted directly to the base of the Titan 505 for optimum results.
