    i'm looking for stands for my monitor audio radius speakers and can't really find anything that fits the bill. are there any speaker stand manufacturers about that build stands to custom heights? i like the stands by customdesign.co.uk, especially the RS100s as the stands are quite small and so would not look silly with my speakers. however, their stands are either, 20, 24 or 39" inches high and i need something thats around 30-32" high. i've sent them an email to ask them if they custom build the stands but they haven't got back to me. so can anyone help please?

    You might like to have a look at www.hne.co.uk for a selection of custom built granite stands,which seem very well received by a number of folks.

    Not cheap,but beautifully finished,and certainly the ones to have for things like B&W 805s....hope that may be of some use.

    i dont know the exact model. They are made by standdesign, about 70cms tall, charcoal in colour, very solid and can be further filled with sand. They have carpet spikes and speaker mounting spikes too, excellent condition.

    Right they are actually 75cms high, 29.5 inches so just about the size you were after i think. let me know if your interested, as if you are and can drive, im happy to arrange to meet up with you in say Watford area, at w/e so you can decide whether they are what you want.
