I have never used real speaker stands before. I never thought it would make enough difference to justify the added expense. I previously had my Polk Audio RTI-4s on a ceramic pillar I got at Wal-Mart and spray painted it with stone paint. I have always liked the sound, but always wondered about resonance. I started researching stands, and picked these as they can be filled with sand (although it is a pain in the rear) I felt I needed to add a little more stability because my GF has two crazy serval cats that think they can jump on anything. These things are pretty hefty already, so you may not need to fill. The holes to fill are tiny and clog with the smallest little pebble, so be sure to sift your sand well. But once I had them assembled and put my speakers on them, it all became worth the effort. I have honestly never heard my speakers sound better. It's hard to explain. They are better in every way. Bass is better, imaging is better, highs are crisper. I know you are...
These stands are probably perfect for most bookshelf speakers as they are producing sound at the optimal listening height for most people sitting on a couch. They are heavy, sturdily built, and easy to put together. I loaded sand inside the base column of mine to make them very stable even with dogs and kids bumping them. Most speaker stands do not allow you to add this kind of weight to stabilize the stands, until you start paying much higher prices. I know as this is the third set of stands I have purchased trying to find something appropriate for my environment. I sold the first two sets. I would buy these again if I ever have need of another set of speaker stands.
After all the years of floor standing speakers, I now have a pair of beautiful bookshelf speakers. The problem is now I need a place to put the speakers since I really don't have a bookshelf handy. Looked around, read a little, asked a few questions and decided that I would run with the Sanus steel foundation stands. I was going to have my stereo guy order them up but figured I had thrown him enough cash. They are available at Magnolia Best Buy. But those guys wouldn't ship them to my house....Amazon to the rescue! These pups came packaged A-1, box in a box, plenty of bubble wrap and cardboard. The individual pieces were separately packaged and wrapped inside the inner box as if they were eggs. All the pieces were there and unscratched. PERFECT... The stands, plates and base, weigh a ton...NICE. The instructions claim the columns of these stands can be filled with shot or sand but I find this redundant. The instructions were fairly straight forward BUT the ol' "which end...
