    Default Monitor stands

    I recently acquired a set of the speaker stands Polk sold optionally with the Monitor series when I bought my Monitor 5's. Checking recently sold stands on an auction site shows that they are selling for $100-120 plus shipping. Are these actually rare? Why the value? They seem kind of flimsy to be honest and I wouldn't have thought they were worth even half that.

    Did they sell for that much or are they asking that much? Big difference.

    I better sell mine quick. I'll profit $20-30 on a pair of speakers that I get to keep.

    are the monitor 10 stands bigger that the monitor 5 stands. I have 10 stands. I would have thought the monitor 5 stands were taller with a smaller pad-----im using the 5jr+ on 10 stands and the pad it too big. So i brought it forward & it seems to work temporary.

    The ones I have are not the short stubby stands, they're a little taller. Going by memory around a foot? I only set them on the stands once but I don't remember the pad or whatever it's called being bigger than the bottom of the speaker.

    These aren't originals by any means but they might do the job:

    I'm sure there must be a place in the US that sells them too.

    Let me take a look.

    Edit Yep, ever so slightly. Turns Monitors into wannabe RTA12's?
