Hey Russ, what was the final verdict on those speaker stands? Do you like them? What speakers are you using with them? The problem you had was the add showed spikes, and they didn't come with them, right? Everyone else's feedback is welcome too, of course! Thanks!

I have some new B&W DM303's sitting on top of them for mains in the HT. They did come with spikes, but they were plastic. (they would not 'crunch' through the carpet)
Micah and Ken and the president at Sanus took care of me. They sent me some metal spikes, and I modded the stands ever so slightly and they work great. Good, solid foundation.
I am happy with them, I think bang-for buck in EVERY price point, Sanus takes the cake.

I was reading on Audio Advisor's site that wood stands have very poor performance compared to metal stands. Any experiences with metal stands? I wonder how much difference there really is. I think the metal stands look ugly, too.

My local Radio Schack had used 3 pair in a demo setup of their stuff. When they were done with them they sold the 36" for $10 a pair and the 24" for $5 a pair. I bought the 2 pair of 24s they came with metal spikes and work great IMO. They are very sturdy with my M12s on them. Not the perfect match for the M12s but they work.

The keys to the "sound" of a stand are stability and rigidity. You can have both with either metal or wood, depending on construction details. A metal stand that is filled with steel shot is the best but the price tag is high. If your speakers are pricey and very high performance, and you are a picky sort, it may be worth it to get good metal stands. BTW Sanus makes some nice metal stands called Ultimate Foundations. We haven;t offered them on our site but I may give it a try to see what the demand might be. Opinions?
