Your thoughts and experiences on speaker manufactures dedicated stands. Do they enhance the speaker, are they good value for money ? etc......
All agreed clare,s speaker-less at the moment . I,m considering the b&wpm1,s. According to whf review the dedicated stands make an important contribution too the pm1,s sound. At 400 pounds a pair thats a hefty investment. Do they really make a significant difference ?Clare Newsome said:Also worth noting that you should consider stands that suit your speakers - from the obvious matter of top-plate size to more subtle considerations (eg some speakers benefiting from heavier stands).
Oh, and worth considering re how the stands are seated (spikes/feet etc) as regards your flooring - just as you would with floorstanding speakers.
But all those comments are re finessing - Chebby is spot on re the essentials in his posts above; anything else is a bonus only you can decide how far you wish to research and try for yourself. If you have the time and inclination, it costs nothing to ask a friendly dealer for a demo of a few different models - ideally, of course, using your own speakers.

nopiano said:Thanks, Cno, I feared that might be the case, and originally drafted something implying they might be more than the B&Ws, but didn't want to guess. Hadn't realised they were quite so pricey.
Nice and solid/heavy (granite). Not to everyones taste, but more acceptable to the wallet at around £100 each.
