Here's a picture The wire can be passed through the posts and come out just at the top for a nice clean install. The bottom is glass. Comes with spikes. The top plate has isolation pads, these stands really keep vibration to a minimum, even without using the spikes the vibration is almost 0. Paid $300 cdn for them (200USD). Asking $130USD or $200 CDN. I have kept the original box and will ship in it. I'm shipping from Ottawa Canada. Buyer pays full shipping costs (item weighs 22lbs). I have a rough estimate for shipping ground to california is $20 USD. Obviously the closer the cheaper. Shipping to BC is around $20 CDN.
