Hi.I have just replaced my Mission 701 speakers with Monitor Audio RX1`S. I have them mounted on my Atacama nexus 6 stands but I feel that they are too low and would possibly sound better on higher stands bringing them more upto seated listening ear height.Any thoughts .Thanks

How much of a height difference do you need? Bearing in mind it is better to have tweeters at or just below ear level rather than above that level.
If you are happy with the nexus range then you could get a 70cm high pair (Currently retailing around £80..)
Would this put them at correct height?
I am assuming you have standard 60cm stands. If so try sticking 10cm of books /newspapers / something on top of what you have, stick speaker on top of that and remeasure height to centre tweeter, compare that to your listening ear-level.
If its better positioned this way you could always flog on your old stands on Gumtree or the like.

Thanks. Alears. I have just been looking around and found a box that brings it to around the 700cm mark and it is a lot better.Ae there any other stands that you could recommend at that height

There are a few, it just depends on what you want to spend.
Apollo A2 and Atacama Duo are both twin pillar designs at or around £65 or dearer Atacama SL700's. My bet would be sticking to the 700cm Nexus.
