Spoiler alert – these Atacama Moseco 6 stands remain our favourite affordable speaker stands and are yet again an award-winner in 2023.


With our reference KEF LS50 Meta placed on top, these Atacamas allow our system to flourish by letting the speakers deliver their best in terms of punch, detail and rhythm.

There’s texture to basslines, a twang to guitars, and expressive (if slightly forward) vocals. Overall, it’s an enjoyable performance.

The Mosecos are rigidly built too. Two metal columns – one filled for better stability, one for cable management – and a bamboo base offer sturdy support and a neat look.

Those with big speakers might find the top plate on the small side, but Atacama does offer an optional Large Top Plate pack, where the plate measures 160mm (6.3") wide with a depth of 220mm (8.7") instead of the standard 130mm (5.2”) and 170mm (6.7”).

In terms of finishes, your choices are satin black as standard and an optional diamond white or gloss/satin black mix. The base panels come as standard in natural bamboo, but there are also medium and dark finishes available.


We’re impressed with how weighty and dynamic these stands make our system sound.

They work well with a variety of speakers across the price range, too and, for a relatively modest amount, they’re one of the best-value stands we’ve come across.
