    Help!

    My wife won't let me take my Studio 20 mains down off of those bookshelves where they are 4 feet above ear level and put them on stands, unless I can find stands that meet her stringent esthetic standards.

    So I need a recommendation for extremely nice looking stands. In all liklihood, wooden stands with some kind of rosenut/cherrywood finish. Possibility of something glass/crystal with silver colored metal as well.

    Priced in the range of $200-$600 US per pr. I'm serious about getting those 20's off the bookshelves.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

    See the trusty folks at Audioadvisor.com for possibly the widest selection available. Most of their stands are steel, but I recall some in wood last time I looked.

    You might want to check out Sanus or Bell'O. They both have very nice wood stands. I bought a pair of the Sanus Natural Foundation 30" cherry wood stands for $100.

    You might want to think about building stands yourself.

    I have no carpentry skills, and this likely could not make speaker stands that even function, let alone ones that look good. Appreciate the suggestion though. I am considering having a pair custom made.

    Go to www.acousticvisions.com and talk to Kyle Richardson about custom building a set. You can see a picture of his under the all projects link.
