I'm obviously completely incapable of independant decision making, so does anyone have any ideas? I'm considering Soundstyle Z-2's, and Partington Trophy's, but they are substantially more expensive. So any other suggestions gratefullly received.

the Z 2 are the stands i use with the br2 and they sound great, dont forget a littke blue tak under each corner of the speakers so they dont get knocked of by the little ones or even the wife,

thanks! Luckily there are no kids and no wife to worry about, but i must admit stability is an issue that worries me anyway, as the part the speaker sits on (sorry, "top plate") is often smaller than the spaeker, isnt it?

The Soundstyle Z2s would be fine for the Monitor Audios.

Our Buyer's Guide gives you all the dimensions for the speakers and stands we've tested - in this case the Z2s are 23cm wide by 31cm deep, while the BR2s are 19cm wide and 25cm deep.

Don't forget the Blu-tack, as mentioned, and you'll be set.

Actually, I've just checked speaker stands on Amazon, and i dont think the dimensions it gives for them are the same. I know tyhis is asking a lot, but if anyone could check and put me right, thatd be great...?

I wouldn't go that far.... Because if the speakers do indeed overlap, those figures in the BG sound out. I'll get Chris Gilson, our new Buyer's Guide editor, onto it on Monday.

Thankyou both. What it actually says for the top plate is 165mm x 225mm. It is possible that im having an extreme blonde moment - figures have never been my forte!

Just to throw a spanner in the works

I have my BR2s on a pair of Atacama SE6s with blu-tac! and they do the job fine.

There is a hollow main tube, into which you can pour whatever you like, which is securely covered when you attach the top-plate. There is, approximately, a 2cm/0.75inch (sides) and 4cm/1.25inch (front/rear) overlap of the top-plate by your speakers (if positioned centrally that is!). However, there is no-where to hide your speaker cables within the stands themselves.

Hope this helps.

I use the soundstyles they are superb I use them with b & w cm1 speakers there is no overhang at the sides but about 1 odd inch @ the back.... this causes no probs as have them blutacked! They are such a bargin in my eyes? You defo cant fill them or hide any cables but hey what do you expect for £60 i suppose! go for it mate

Might be too late for you now, but have you considered other Soundstyle stands, like the Z-1's or the XS-122's.....

Thanks Rock Man. I found a good deal on some Mission Stance stands so, while they may be more than people would use with my kit, i got 'em. About £63.00 including p&p. While im here tho, does anyone have any advice on atabites? Specifically, does anyone know how far a 9kg tub will go with my stands, and does each stand need to be brim full?

Hi, im new to this forum - but can anyone help?, I have a "headphone" problem. I have purchased a second hand MF X-Cans headphone amp[e-bay] to hook up to my Naim Nac92 pre-amp but cannot get any volume. The volume control on the MF does increase, but at such low volume level it is almost inaudible. I have spoken to two seperate hi-fi retailers and both advised "new 600 ohm headphones". These have now been purchased [Sennheiser 25 - 13 II] any have made no difference. Having checked the stats - the output from the Naim is .775, but surely the X-Cans should boost the signal - very confused and frustrated!!
