    Got some B&W 685's and currently have them propped on my weight bench as a temporary fix, obviously not ideal. Looking to spend £30-£40, a height of around 60cm is ideal and the location is important due to me not having a car. In or around Liverpool would be great but if you let me know where you are we might be able to sort something unless delivery is possible.
    Thanks

    Got a pair of Alphason Design speakers stands but is 45cm high and would need to be delivered.

    £25 incl delivery

    Hi,
    Got these and they are pretty much mint with no marks or scars. The top plate has marks from blu-tack and cones.
    They were £300 and are as heavy as Hell filled with lead. 57-60cm high with spikes extended. They come with bottom and top spikes and adjustment tool. Think they are made by Partington.
    I can deliver them but £50 delivered is my absolute bottom line as it'll take more than £15 in petrol as I'm in Blackpool.

    Don Dadda, thanks for the offer but they're a little shorter than what I was looking for. Will be using them for a HiFi setup and around 60cm puts the tweeters level with my ears.

    Droom, they look great I've just got a couple of questions. Could you possibly tell me/estimate how heavy they are with and without the lead? Also, I'll be moving back to uni in September and taking these with me so was wondering if it's easy to remove the lead in future so that I can transport them more easily or is the lead poured into the stands? Thanks

    Don't know weight without filling but easy to take out by removing top plate and pouring into a bucket.

    So the lead is in liquid form and can just be poured out and back when needed?

    Liquid lead?
    The inert and solid filling can be emptied into a bucket

    Happy to take out the lead shot and replace with sand which will reduce the weight considerably.

    I'd rather have the lead if it can be really removed then I'd rather have the lead thanks, heavier the better right

    Tomorrow works for me. Just had a quick Google and they look a lot like the soundstyle z1 stands but I could be wrong. Assuming they are as described and all then £50 delivered is the agreed price, I'll pm you my address now?
