    Are the Alphason AD5/47-S stands any good & will they easily hold an amp, VHS recorder, DVD player & Digi box?

    there is a larger shelf space on the bottom so you may need that for an AV amp.
    It's good value for money but is certainley a different league from optimum, spectral etc..

    When you say different league, do you mean status/name or quality? :confused: :)

    videonasty,

    I was looking at one of these originally, but when I saw one with my own eyes they actually look poor quality.
    It will hold the equipment you mention but I would look at the Apollo Stands as they look much better.
    They have a new brochure out soon which has a corner unit. I e-mailed them direct and they sent me some pictures of the corner unit (attached)that you can order but is not showing on their website.
    The build quality is much better and the legs don't look to plasticy.

    If you can spare the extra cash though I'd go for a Stands Unique AV10 which I opted for at the last moment. It's a bit more costly but knocks spots off all the over AV Stands/furniture I've seen and it meets the wifes approval.
    I think you can get 10% off this stand at the moment in the Power buys.

    Hi there,

    Doh!! My mistake I confused this with the AD3/93-S stand.
    Apollo do a hifi stand with a choice of different coloured legs. If you look on www.apollohifi.co.uk they have a few images there. If you e-mail them they should be able to send you a few more images.

    They don't mention prices on there site.
    I just asked them for a quote. The Corner unit that I mentioned was around £400.00, but this was for a 4 shelf unit not a 3 shelf unit shown in the picture.
    The 3 shelf unit was around £300.00 which was about average when I compared this to the other stands that I looked at.
    The hifi units I would have thought would be cheaper though.
