Performance

It’s worth filling in the central column for better stability (£30 will get you a tub of Atacama Atabites)

With our reference ATC SCM 11s 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.

The top plate is a bit small, especially if you have large speakers

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 large speakers might find the top plate on the small side, but Atacama is planning to offer the Mosecos in different sizes in the future.

Verdict

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, at a relatively modest £120, they’re one of the best-value stands we’ve come across.
