    Hi guys

    Can anyone help - I'm thinking about a pair of CLS-70s fronts (@ http://www.creative-audio.co.uk/cls70_black.htm for £349 - not bad)

    - do they have to be mounted on their tripod stands, or would any stand do? :confused:

    any help would be appreiciated!

    cheers

    Benbo :D

    No & No.

    The stand must be solid and rigid enough to support them. The ability to mass load them is also an advantage, as well as spikes.

    Provided the above is satisfied, IMHO, a stand is a stand. :hiya:

    thanks :thumbsup: , what dyou recon to Partington dreadnoughts - up to the task? they're doing that for £129 :) . I like the looks but the CLS-70 was an £800 speaker so I guess the stands would have to be fairly substantial.

    would they rate at £800 or £400 speakers? Getting itchy myself. I have a set of now defunct shan's from NI, equivalent to the original proac tablettes and just alittle under the original AE1's.
    Kind of tempted by price range alone, as I am unlikely to have these available to demo near Belfast. Additionally, the aurum cantus imported also appears equally tempting. :hiya:

    I would say definatly towards the £800 mark - I prefer them to a pair of Naim intro 2 speakers I heard for example.
