    Currently have my Series 6 Panasonic Plasma wall mounted, but fancy a change. Rather than moving the mount, I want to get a stand for it, but i'm unsure as to the best purchase.
    Are the Universal Stands any good? Which is the best one? Where is the best place to buy from?

    Thanks

    Thanks for that. Its cheaper than the stands I have seen elsewhere.
    The image for it isn't very good though - where on the PW6 does it fix? is it nice and sturdy?

    cheers :)

    Yes it is nice and sturdy... unfortunatly I didn't see it being installed, and don't have the instructions, but there is a long "platform" which sits on the pedestal, and the PW6 sits on this (I think there are "pins" which go into the PW6).

    When I get a chance to take some photos I'll take a picture from the back which may help.

    My stand came half assembled, only had to put the 4 screws into it and it looks better than it does in the pictures

    one word of warning plug the mains lead in before you put plasma on the stand, very little room to do it afterwards,

    I use an SMS stand (see http://sms.shopsystem.nu).

    It allows space below the plasma for a centre speaker as the stand is height adjustable!

    Thanks, Mr Noisy :clap:

    I gave Joe a call & just waiting for an email response on prices. This stand looks great and will free up a whole shelf on my AV rack, I just hope it will be in my price range! :eek:

    The stand for the old PA20 also fits the PW6. It looks great as well. Model no is TYSTLOCAL1. Not sure if you can still get hold of them though. Got mine for about £300 but it did take about 6 weeks to come!! Well worth the wait and has a nice big core to hide all the wires in.

    I got the panasonic TY-ST05K with my PWD6 from AV-sales, its the one with the 2 metal rods which insert into the underside of the screen, very solid connection and quite stylish, I like the fact that you cannot see underneath the screen, easily hiding cables etc.

    cheers, spook

    Mr Noisy,

    I view this stand , as not widely available, but is it sturdy & rock steady? Any other drawbacks?

    Also, compared to your picture, by how more and less can the height be adjusted?

    Thanks again.

    There is a pdf with full info here and mounting instructions:

    http://sms.shopsystem.nu/product.asp?product=122&page=1

    You can also apply a very small tilt, which is handy if your plasma partly faces a window (I have set mine up so it tilts downward slightly).

    There are cable management slots either side of the support to partially hide your wires.

    It seems very sturdy - it's made of strong and rather heavy metal! :) :thumbsup:

    :) Yes, and combined with a heavy plasma, it took me a while to be confident the glass shelf could take it!

    I am very happy with my stand. I bought it at the same time as the plasma from Joe at TMF and got a reduced price as a result... can't remember what it was though - too long ago!

    Its got no reserve, and is currently only just over £3!

    I admit I was hoping for a LOT more than that - but it is an auction, so the highest bidder will win it, whatever the bid. I got it as part of a package deal, so no idea what these are worth, although there is another for sale on ebay for £150 new.
