Optimum OPT60S review

They look stylish and assured, but these Optimum stands have a presentation that's thin and two-dimensional Tested at £130.00

What Hi-Fi? Verdict

The performance of these stands is altogether too timid and weedy to justify the price

Pros

  • + Stylish
  • + choice of finishes
  • + well-built

Cons

  • - Spike arrangement
  • - thin sound
  • - narrow

A stand with glass plates top and bottom, joined by a column in a choice of seven different finishes, is a fine proposition for budding interior stylists.

Sadly the looks are rather spoiled by the arrangement of the top- and floor-spikes, while the sound is altogether too timid and weedy to justify the price.

A narrow, two-dimensional soundstage and lightweight presentation is far from ideal.
