    Most people seem to be using fixed-height stands for their bookshelf speakers. It seems reasonable to assume these would be more stable than adjustable stands. However, being able to experiment with optimal speaker position, the versatility in adapting to different speaker sizes, etc., appear to be big advantages of the adjustable stands. Has anyone tried both and noticed any significant difference in stability and/or sound quality? Thanks.

    Hi Duane,
    You couldn't be more correct. Problem is, nobody really makes a fairly heavy, sturdy adjustable stand. I'm actually toying with the idea of building some myself out of heavy gauge steel pipe...one tube inside of another. Gotta find me a welder first though....

    Nice try Andy, but like I said, cheesy and cheapo. My little 17lb bookshelves weigh considerably more than those stands do. I sense a market niche....
