Bryston will begin exclusively offering Canadian-manufactured Target speaker stands through its domestic and international sales channels effective immediately. Target has more than three decades in the accessories business, offering premium steel loudspeaker stands in an array of sizes.
Originally founded in 1981, Target Audio is a newly formed company now based in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada. Target pioneered the concept of high-mass, high-rigidity loudspeaker stands. Weighing up to 39 lbs. (18 kgs.) per stand, Target stands are constructed of hot-rolled steel, bolt securely together, and are finished in a powder coat, ensuring years of durability.
Target offers four lines of increasingly robust stands designed for compatibility with virtually all shelf and stand-mount loudspeakers — the FS Series (Firm Stand), the HS Series (Heavy Stand), the HR Series (High Rigidity) and the MR Series (Maximum Rigidity) — and each series is offered in 20-, 24-, and 28-inch heights. Black is the standard finish with white offered on a special-order basis. Each stand includes threaded spikes and pads that isolate the speaker from the top plate.
“We recognized an opportunity to work with a manufacturer of quality products with a factory based right here in Ontario, Canada, and there seemed to be a natural synergy, especially with Bryston offering the Mini A and Mini T loudspeakers that work superbly with these rugged Target stands,” said James Tanner, VP of sales at Bryston. “We are looking at expanding the Target offerings in the near future to include equipment stands and other accessories that will provide AV specialty retailers with a comprehensive lineup of premium solutions for their customers.”
