    hi all,

    Anyone know of any good speaker stands for the davs 550 rear and front speakers.

    Seen the ones in Currys (not good at all - and not really compatible for the screw fixing on the sony speakers) and the ones in Ikea are not too good either.

    What have you lot got ???

    If you feel the price is a bit much I just bought 2 pairs of Alphason Speakers out of Comet at £35 per pair .
    They do the job and you could probably get them cheaper if you find a local stockist.
    My problem was that I could get them cheaper but by the time delivery charges added it would have cost the same.

    There is a link on the early pages on the "Help for a newbie" thread on the T.V section which I originated which shows a range of speakers stands.

    I have purchased a pair of Alphason stands from Argos at £35 a pair and they do the job just fine.

    I had never had a sound system as such before buying the Sony Davs 550 with my new T.V.
    Just a 9yr old T.V with Nicam sound.

    However,for me who very occassionally watched a film have now watched more films in the 4-6 weeks than in the last 6 months because I enjoy them so much more with the sound system.

    To be absolutely fair I am not certain this is because I have a specific make of sound system or just such an improvement on what I had previously.
    I would have to hear another sound system to compare before I could say it was definitely the Sony Dav S 550 but the sound I have is definitely enjoyable.
