    I'm using the Onkyo SKSHT510 speaker system and am looking to get 4 fairly cheap speaker stands for my mains and rears. Anyone have any recommendations? I've been looking at the Omnimount stands that Circuitcity sells but can't decide what height to get. The 16'' appear too short so its basically between the 31'' and 24'' sizes. Which size would be ideal for my system?

    Try to get stands that will put the speakers tweeter at ear level when you're sitting in your listening/viewing location. So go sit down, measure how many inches your ears are from the floor, then subtract the number of inches you get when you measure from the tweeter to the bottom of the speakers, and that will tell you what size stands to get.
