    These are not in the same league as the Sound Anchors
    but in a dim room they disappear in front of a RPTV
    with a dark grey or balck bottom speaker section.

    Toni,
    I just purchsed an adjustable Sound Anchor center speaker stand through a local dealer and I'm very impressed with it. Here's a link to the stand I bought:
    http://www.soundanchors.com/page74.html
    The Sound Anchor stand replaced a cheap particle board stand I cobbled together by cutting down one of those cheap stands you get for $40/pair at Best Buy.
    I filled the Sound Anchors stand with sand (as instructed by the dealer) to eliminate resonance. It was easy to adjust height and tilt the stand using spikes and mechanical adjustments so that my tweeter's beam was right at ear level.
    Have to say I was surprised at the improvement I got in center clarity. Slight "chestiness" in sound vanished and the center speaker seemed to blend better with L and R and disappeared. My wife even commented (rare!) on the improvement. [Note speakers are Paradigm Reference Studio 100's and Studio Center].
    Not a cheap tweak, to be sure. Your results may vary, but I got an unexpected, audible benefit from this stand.

    Hi Paul,
    You know, I looked at that webpage before,
    when in search for the CC-3 stand.
    I was overlooking the one that You have bought.
    The CC-3 is perhaps too big for my center (Tannoy RC),
    but maybe the SDACC is a better one for me.
    I assume that's the one You're talking about.
    Yes, filling those stands is indeed a good plan.
    It adds a more stable base, and reduces vibes.
    May I ask how much You paid for it ?
    (now only hoping it's available in The Netherlands [​IMG]
    Thanks for sharing Your info, I really appreciate it !!
    Best regards,
    Toni.

    Toni,

    Yes, that's the stand I bought.

    Paid $220 US + tax. Was a special order from the supplier and took about 4 weeks to get in (Apparantly, Sound Anchors was slammed with post-CES orders and couldn't keep up).

    Let me know if any other questions.

    Cheers,

    -Paul

    Paul,

    Thanks for Your help so far.

    First thing to do, is looking for a distributor in my country.

    Then deal with the waiting list...

    If I have any more questions, I will ask.

    Thanks again.

    Bye.

    That sound anchor stand looks real nice, but is also pretty pricey. Does anyone know of any other good "fillable" center channel stands at a lower cost? I would rather not pay as much for my stand as I did for the speaker!

    I just bought a pair of Sanus st16's on ubid and doubled them up for my Paradigm lcr 450. They may have some on sale now but if not they'll come back. I paid $7 for them but after their insane shipping cost and sales tax they came to almost $25. But they are perfect for this and at that price an absolute bargain.
