    I am thinking of buying the JBL NSP1 speaker set, along with this stuff:

    Kenwood VR-509 Reciever

    Sony SA-WM40 Subwoofer

    Panasonic RV31 DVD

    I currently have a WEGA 27" Sony TV, KV27FS13.

    I was looking at the prices of the Speaker stands for the FSN24. They sell for $70 and that's before shipping!!! Jbl suggests they be sold for around $130. My question is, would I be better off looking for a more expensive speaker set that includes stands/tower speakers instead of this one?

    I want to purchase the JBL set as it comes highly recommended by everyone here, but add another $140 dollars for the price of 2 pairs of stands and I'm not so sure it is the way to go. Any suggestions?

    Eddie,dont worry so much about the matching stands.when I fist bought my NSP1(awesome by the way, you wont be dissapointed)I was tempted to buy them also but the price like you saw was absurd.Simple solution?go to radio shack,best buy, or circuit city and get a pair thats reasonably priced and looks good.Also look around online at places like etronics .com or bestpriceaudiovideo.com for great prices also.However just out of curiosity youre not paying more than $250 for the speakers are you? Anyway hope this helps some,later.

    Etronics has the speaker set listed at 269.00 before shipping. J and R has them for 299.00, I believe that is with shipping included. This is the best I have found. If you know if a better deal please let me know. i've been scouring Best Buy for a returned one, but have had no luck.

    Bought a pair of metal stands at Radio Shack for $50. Work fine for the N24's.

    JandR has the jbl stands for $54.99 with free shipping. I know, I just got a 595, the NSP1 + PB10 and the stands.

    J and R describes the stands...

    "JBL Floor Stands for Home Cinema Speakers ( Pair )

    These black floor stands support any surround satellites in the JBL family of home cinema speakers / Price is for two stands"

    When I read this it made it sound like they only fit the speakers included in the home cinema pack. Are you sure these stands will fit the speakers Ozrik?

    Also, if anyone has any other speaker stand suggestions lets hear em.

    Figured id resurrect this thread because I just got the NSP1's and are looking to get/make some stands. Did anyone ever figure out if the $55 JBL stands from JandR will fit the N24's? Anyone else here make stands for N24's?

    The $55 stands are not the FSN24 which are specifically designed for the N24 speakers. They don't list the NSP1 system as compatible with these stands so you're probably out of luck on this one...

    Eddie,
    Just this past weekend I spent some good time wiring my house for my NSP1's and PB-12 sub that finally came in last Wed. (From J&R)!! Hey, you'll love 'em[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I also bought 2 pr. of the stands from Radio Shack for $49./pr. They do the trick and extend to a pleasing height for the surrounds. Oh, there are 3 different mounting options included w/this stand. I used the flat plates w/ the enclosed velcro pads to secure the N24's. Lovin'everyminuteofit[​IMG]
    Good luck!
