You can usually guarantee that a new laptop stand will appear at NAMM. And thanks to our old friends at Magma, the new Vektor fulfils those expectations perfectly.
It requires little explanation, but Magma has provided words nonetheless:
MAGMA debuts new LAPTOP-STAND VEKTOR at NAMM 2017
Wiehl, Germany, January 13, 2017:
Worldwide renown manufacturer of innovative and premium travel bags, cases & accessories for DJs is pleased is to announce a brand new portable Laptop-Stand that will be introduced during the 2017 Namm Show in Anaheim, California:
NEW: MAGMA LAPTOP-STAND VEKTOR
Premium portable laptop-stand designed for versatility
The new MAGMA VEKTOR LAPTOP-STAND is a sturdy and versatile foldaway DJ equipment stand designed to support a laptop, DJ-controller, or other production equipment like the Machine, Push 2 or Launchpad.

Heights and angles are fully adjustable and allow it to be comfortably placed underneath a mixer, turntable, or controller.

What we have here is a melting pot of all that is good and great in DJ laptop design. With obvious design cues from the Crane, UDG, and Uberstand, the Vektor lacks the utility tray of some, but does offer adjustments that others don’t.
I’m all out of words for this — it’s a laptop stand, and everything that could be said has been said. And now Magma has one that hits the right notes for just about everyone. And it’s a bit cheaper than the rest too.
Magma is appearing on the Mixware stand, Hall B stand 6000, at NAMM 2017, which starts in earnest tomorrow.
