    Speaker stands, what is everybody using?

    For big floor standing speakers.  I see some nice walnut ones for sale on ebay, but thinking of making my own.

    I'm confused.  You are going to put stands under floor standing speakers?

    Yes.  The speakers should be on an angle so the sound comes at you better.

    Thanks man. It was a lot of fun putting together. None of the equipment worked properly when I got it so it's extra rewarding that everything works, sounds great and cost next to nothing.

    Before I would buy or build stands, I would experiment by sticking books or magazines under the front of the speakers to determine how much tilt you prefer. 

    Tilting your speakers back can have a profound effect on your listening experience. It's not always an improvement though. The size of the room, distance between speakers, distance to your listening chair, ceiling height, room furnishings etc. all contribute to the overall performance of your speakers. 

    Good luck with whatever you decide.

    Yes, I did put my Pioneer HPM 60 on stands.  It really sounds awesome!

    You ever think of angling them up?  I've tread up on placement and toyed around with mine and there is a considerable difference when you have them angled towards your ears.  In a nice chair in center I'm sure you get a nice sound.

    Nice setup.  Pioneer SX?

    Cool setup.

    Those Kantos look like studio monitors. I'd bet they sound nice and smooth with the dome tweeters.

    Where's the Vault?!?

    I have a question about these little speakers.

    Do these actually produce a decent sound?  I have Martin Logan 15's and they sound great but my HPM100's sound way better.

    Curious.  THX Joe

    Ha!  You're in the market again?  Are you happy with the Emotiva gear?
    TT, you have some good choices.  But I would personally go with a Pro-Ject or Rega with the options you want.  
    Speakers...well that all depends on your listening space.  If you've got a small room, you need near field speakers.  You don't want big ole towers, likewise, if you have a large room then you need something full range.

    Very happy with the Emotiva gear!  Still never upgraded the speakers, looking to do so over the next few months.

    Yes, floor speaker stands are great. When I needed them, I liked just the black coated wire kind because they are almost invisible.

    "Best" is difficult to determine. "Best for your particular tastes and needs" is the question to ask.
