Salk silk speaker stands
« on: 6 Nov 2019, 06:53 am »
Any recommendations on speaker stands for the Salk silk?
I want to make sure the speakers are stable on the stands. I have seen a few recommendations on here which are higher than I would prefer to pay.
Thanks!

I'm very happy with the Monolith 24" speaker stands from Monoprice ($54.99 each, free shipping).
With 4 columns in each stand, they give a very solid base for my pair of Legacy Calibres (which are around 55 lbs each).
No worries about tipping or becoming unbalanced-

I ordered customized stands from TimberNation.com.  If you search their offerings you can find good deals.  Mine consisted of a single large hollow pedestal the same size as the width/depth of the speaker with oversized base.  Each weighed 25 pounds and held another 50 pounds of sand.  Ordered them over the phone and followed up with email.  Black lacquer finish didn't hold up, so suggest avoiding that option.

You don't mention what you're willing to pay, but I have and really like these: https://www.sanus.com/en_US/products/speaker-stands/sf22/

They look great, are very stable, and have nice features.  They are also available in various heights.  I use that sticky putty stuff to help secure the speaker to the stands, and it works perfectly.  I've had a pair now for nearly 12 years without issue.

Mapleshade Bedrock stands dramatically improved the SQ of my speakers. Here is my review:

and a pic where you can see my L and R channels sitting on them:

I’m very happy with my VTI stands

My “monitors” are pretty heavy (about 35# each?), so I appreciate these stands being very stable.
