The Ultimate TS-99 stands with Telelock« are sturdier, smarter and no sweat for one person to use!
Telelock« is a patented locking mechanism that makes these stands slip resistant with internal friction preventing speakers lowering too hard or too quickly.
The TS-99 is one of the easiest speaker stands to use thanks to its patented TeleLock collar. Set the TeleLock collar to either the "Raise" or "Lower" setting and the Auto-lock technology provides just the right amount of resistance to allow you to raise or lower the speaker while locking the tube in place as you go. It's like having tour support built into your speaker stand!
The TS-99's offset tripod base design provides more support than typical "off-the-shelf" speaker stands. The design makes for very tight internal fittings, doing away with unnecessary sloppy leg problems, and includes a super strong die-cast metal collar that prevents over-tightening and breakage issues associated with all plastic designs.
The entire stand (legs, mast, and telescoping tube) uses oversized, heavy-walled aluminum tubing for durability, functionality, and weight savings.
The TS-99BL Stands with Telelock« will not rust or corrode (thanks to its architectural anodized finish), is very smooth to operate, and is extraordinarily strong yet lightweight. From the foot caps on the bottom of the tripod legs all the way up to the speaker adapter at the top of the stand, the TS-99 is serviceable by parts as needed over its very long lifespan. In the unlikely event that something does break on the TS-99, simply replace with an affordable part instead of throwing the entire stand away and buying a whole new one!
