    Hi,

    Does anyone have experience of the new Mordaunt Short 5.1 package?:

    http://www.mordauntshort.com/ranges.php?RAID=13&Title=Alumni

    MS list them as "omnimount ready" and I've confirmed with a supplier that they ship with no mounts of their own (which sucks imo). ANyone know anything about omnimount fittings?

    Looking online it seems to be an American company - any UK suppliers? Do all mounts fit an "omnimount ready" speaker?

    My very first result of my first google search returned these.

    I would suggest that MS made the correct decision to point punters in the direction of an industry standard mount that can be had very cheaply. The ones above were £30 for five for instance.

    The only speakers that have come with their own stands in my experience are a) floorstanders ;) and b) speakers that couldn't stand up without one.
