I have a pair of n804's on sound anchor stands on a fully
carpeted floor. with my grandchildren running around the
sound anchors are not very stable. While searching the net
i ran across granite stands made by HNE in England. Has
anybody used their products. I need some help they are not
inexpensive 540.oo pr dlvd. here in the U.S.A. Any and
all comments would be appreciated.

do your current stands have spikes? and are they able to be filled with sand? those two things will make the stands extremely stable....

"I have a pair of n804's on sound anchor stands on a fully

I'm surprised you're seeing a lack of stability with your situation. I've had my N804s on the 2.5" Sound Anchors for about a year now. They're EXTREMELY stable. Are your Sound Anchors the 2.5" or the 4.5" version?

BTW, mine came filled with something. AFAIK, all Sound Anchors are filled. I don't know what it is, but it's heavy...

Lynn :
They are stable but not side to side if someone pushes them
aka grandchildren running they will topple. BTW i have the
same stands you have. I have spoken to sound anchors and I
told him they are a bad design they schould be bolted
in rather than just sitting in the holes.

Raymond, I have a cheap and effective solution for you. Go to your local hobby shop that sells radio control car & airplane kits. Ask for servo tape. It's a bit less than 1mm thick, very sticky on both sides. Remove you N804s from the Sound Anchors. Apply the tape liberally to the spots on the Sound Anchors where you want them to adhere to you N804s. Once that's done carefully place you N804s on the Sound Anchors in the exact spots where you want them. They won't be attached as well as if they were bolted down, but almost as well. The servo tape is semi-permanent. I'v used it to attach cones to the bottom of a Sunfire sub, with very good results.

LYNN :
I have already done somthing similar i am using industrial
velcro but i am still not happy. I took the plunge today
and purchased the granite plinthes as the english call
them they look beutiful from what I can tell. On their
website. They fasten buy using the holes that B&W use
for their spiked feet . If you would like to see about
what it would look like go to hne.co.uk.

I've heard of people using those plastic tie down straps to firmly affix their speakers to the stands.
