Im using cheapo stands at the moment which fill me with dread.

There are lots of different makes of decent stands... but no one could recommend any without knowing what kind of height you need your speakers to be.

Ah yes of course, sorry..
The plate the speaker sits on is currently at 106cm (3.5 ft) off the floor, which seems to be a good height for me.

thanks, John

My monitor stands are 20 years old, but they are still perfect: Ultimate Support MS-36. I have them filled with sand and they are sturdy. The MS-45 was their 45-inch tall model. They came in black (B suffix) or silver (S suffix).

Unfortunately the MS-36's/MS-45's aren't made anymore, and I never understood why the company would discontinue a perfect product. You might be able to find a pair on the used market, which is my whole point of mentioning them.

This is also the same company that discontinued their perfect A-frame keyboard stand building blocks system. Go figure.

I have Genelec 1031A's on them, which are very close in size to your Neumanns.

Ultimate's current models are here:

The marketing copy claims they're good, but I have not tried them.

I got my stands made up by Custom Design, really solid, made to exactly the right height and a very reasonable price considering the quality.

Another one to add to the list:

All of our KH310s are on Towersonic TS-1s filled with sand - they do their job well.

Ah yes, good call -- I'd forgotten about them. I reviewed them back in 2007:

Thanks for all your suggestions. I was drawn to the the Towersonics but they are a bit above what Id prefer to spend so I bought some Ultimate Support MS 100-B ( http://www.ultimatesupport.com/ms-100b.html ) after Freddie's recommendation. Ive been really happy with the mic stands Ive had from Ultimate Support so hopefully their monitor stands will be equally good. I'll let you know... thanks again.

Yep, I still use Atacama SE1000 stands ( 1 metre high, but now sadly superceded by other modesl) for my tiny ATC monitor speakers.

They are built to solid engineering standards 8-)

I use Custom Designs for all my stand requirements, which precise type will depend on model and budget for the project.. but they make them to order, to any height i want, and can also provide angled top plates , and their inert filler material is IMHO the best in the business....
