    This simple affair (see attached pic) cost under a fiver, has some small pitch and roll adjustment and looks ok from below! Idea was nicked from an avsforum diy AE300 mount thread.

    Parts include:

    1 x small length of 19mm diameter chrome pipe
    2 x chrome worktop mounts to suit above pipe
    3 x 40mm M5 bolts
    6 x M5 nuts
    6 x washers to suit
    1 x small piece of 5mm thick perspex or similar
    1 x small drill bit (for drilling holes for self tappers in chrome pipe)
    6 x self tapping screws (to attach worktop mounts to chrome pipe)

    Just substitute the M5 nuts/bolts/washers to suit your own PJ (AE300 was M4)
    Previously held my AE300 for 18mths and is not even screwed into a joist, just quality plasterboard plugs used on the top mount plus a dollop of no-nails for good measure.

    However since switching to the much heavier HS50 paranoia has set in and I am going to get into the loft and bridge the joists near my mount to give me something solid to screw into :)

    Thanks!

    Heres another piccy:

    p.s The circular hole in the perspex seen in the earlier pic was to allow a Benq 5120 which I briefly owned to vent.

    And another with the AE300 (should have used shorter screws!)
