    Hi,

    Firstly, apologies if this has been posted in the wrong forum.

    I recently bought a Kef KHT5005 speaker package and was gobsmacked by price of the (admittedly lovely) Kef speaker stands - £200 per pair! The ones I saw were like a black, metal tube that the speaker sat on top of.

    Can anyone suggest a cheaper alternative which is fairly easy on the eye? I've been in touch with Alphason, but they said their stands wouldn't accept egg-shaped speakers.

    Any suggestions (other than serves you right for not checking first) most welcome.
    Thanks,

    Andy

    You really should stick to the stands that are designed for those speakers. Anything else will look ungainly and out of place, as well as not holding them very securely.

    Thanks crustyloafer - I take your point, but £400 for four stands is alot to come up with.

    Mind you, I didn't get into this AV lark because I thought it would be a cheap hobby :rotfl:
