Can't argue with Andrew. My HiFi is on Atacama Equinox 5 tier. Great isolation, solid build and pleasing on the eye. There is a choice of colours for both the metalwork and the glass shelves, including piano black.

Having said that, check out the Modus S2 Icon Cube from the S&C Group (sometimes referred to as Icon). I have seen this advertised for £500 but I got mine through Amazon for £300 inc. delivery. It is seriously sexy if your 50" is also piano black. But be warned. It weighs a ton!!

This is something I had not thought of. With turntables and Hi Fi speakers etc. you automatically think of the best stands to isolate the gear from vibration and such. How much does the stand affect the performance of a Plasma tv? Andrew says the sound on the average tv is pants, but could it be better if on a good stand? Most stands advertised with the tv's look flimsy especially the glass ones but are still expensive.

A lot will depend on your floor. How solid, how even and its covering?. Make sure your stand is as level and stable as possible. Nothing worse than your prize possession toppling over!!

A good stand will at least maintain your tv's sound producing alility. For a marked improvement you would have to go down the A/V amp and speakers route.

the floor is not so important. the stand has sharp screw in points. just dont try and drag it when there in. the atacama you want is not the 5 tier mentioned above. it is the base plus 1 shelf. it will cost you 400 quid. i paid 360 at sevenoaks. the boxes are quite big mind. it is wide enough for 2 components width on each shelf and the middle shelf is excellent for your middle speaker. this stand is SOLID and HEAVY.
