I'm close to ordering some XTZ 99.25 speakers: ignoring the small matter of the cash outlay they have the GAF (which is always good). However being a slave to the aesthetic she is insisting that I must buy the matching stands if I am to get the blessing! I currently have an old set of Atacama SE24s that are less pretty but crucially made of steel (or something fairly heavy duty). However I gather the XTZ stands are made from mdf which I'm not sure what to make of. Can anyone who has these (or knows of any mdf-made speaker stands) vouch for them? Thanks.
