The Company

An audio enthusiast of 25 years, Kevin Hancock founded Lateral Audio Stands with the goal of creating hi-fi furniture capable of redefining audio systems.

LAS-4 AV Stand

LAS-4 AV Stand

The vibrational behaviour of a stand profoundly affects the musicality of an audio system. Lateral Audio stands are designed to both maximise the removal of vibrational energy to an absorbing ground path and to generate minimal energy themselves, thereby reducing the vibration that enters into the components of your audio system.

They become a significant component at the centre of your audio system, increasing the performance of entry level audio components and allowing mid to high-end components to perform at their very best.

Each design has been inherently influenced by engineering design in consumer product vibration and aerospace structures, and the stands have been listen-tested and approved by select audio dealers such as Audio-philia.


Key Features

  • Unique isolation technology - Lateral Audio’s Concert Isolation Platform

  • Unique stand construction - shelves are not integral to the stand’s legs, which enables custom shelf spacing, additional shelves to or removed from some standard designs, and the ability to easily add remove/replace shelves at home, as required

  • Split leg construction isolates upper tiers on 4 & 5 tier stands (Tier+)

  • Shelf design and construction - CNC machined premium grade birch ply and premium oak veneer

  • Solid oak legs - CNC cut from particularly dense oak, chosen for its enhanced audio properties


Lateral Audio Stand Models


Concert Isolation Platform

All Lateral Audio stands have been designed around their unique Concert Isolation Platform. It consists of a high performance, non-resonant Concert audio surface and 4 isolating cone contact points that are optimised for either digital sources or turntables (select your preference when ordering).

The Concert Isolation Platform couples with the stand through the 4 Direct Point Contacts integrated into every Lateral Audio shelf, and together they create an energy absorbing ground path.

The LAS-4 Concert Stand comes with a Concert Isolation Platform on the top shelf and standard, and the shelves of all other Lateral Audio stands can be upgraded with the platform.

LAS-4 Integral Stands

The LAS-4 is a high performing hifi stand, made entirely from high-grade materials chosen for their audio enhancing properties.

The energy absorbing design of this stand, with each shelf being independently held, is integral to all Lateral Audio designs and also allows for shelves to be added to, or removed from, standard designs and for shelves to be spaced apart according to custom requirements (standard spacings specified below).

All components of Lateral Audio stands are CNC machined including the attractively designed slots in each shelf, designed to reduce vibration and enable heat dispersion.

Each tier can be upgraded with the Concert Isolation Platform.

Available soon: The Integral Stand in Black (for an additional cost).
