I have a set of these for my JBL 8's. My setup is... um unique so required a stand that could have the monitors up pretty high. So far no issues though they do seem a tad wobbly up at the highest point. So say if you have cats, small children, or are prone to knocking things over - I'd not use the highest setting and just wall mount them instead. Otherwise.... they do the job. Plus for carpeted flooring they have the lil' stabby pointy bits to help dig into the carpet. Plus they are adjustable to help you level the stands out. Last thing of note. I ended up getting foam so I could angle them down toward my ears better for that "triangle of sound" to get the best listening experience from them.

I hate to rain on anybody's parade here, but I've got two points to make: First of all, I'm speaking as a guy who owns the pair of monitor stands below on the right. I don't know who Sonic Fiber is--so far as I know, both sets below are actually made by (or made for) the same company: Auray (you can find them at aurayaudio.com). I chose the set on the right because I liked the look of them better and as they point out in their description, the open foot design allows you to place them around corners (or the legs of your desk/table) with more flexibility than the less attractive, closed foot design on the left. Both versions are rated to hold 90 lbs and both adjust to heights you'd probably never use. So why the big price difference? I'll come to that later ;- )

I purchased my set for a pair of JBL 300 series monitors I bought right here on good old MD (back when it was good old MD). Initially I thought moving my speakers from the desk, to stands would improve the sound and free up some desk space. I was right on the second point and wrong on the first--here's why: unless you really are running a recording studio, the idea of getting the speakers at precisely the correct height (ear-level) is kind of a non-issue. I don't know what kind of speakers you're running, but for everyday listening, particularly with a desktop system, you're just not gonna realize that damn much of a difference from about 36" (on your desk) to say... 51" (where my ear is). Yes, the sound will be different, but not better. So, do you really, really need them? If you're really pressed for desk space, maybe. My JBLs aren't overly wide, but they're deep and they do take up some space. But to me, the height of the speaker isn't a big deal, but getting the correct listening triangle placement right, is. If your present setup doesn't allow for that, a set of stands might help. Speaking of placement, regardless of the model, the feet do get in the way and can be easy to trip over and a pain to vacuum/sweep around--and being black, they do get dusty! After using mine for a few months I decided they just didn't provide any real benefit, that, and as I've mentioned elsewhere, they really did ugly-up the place. Granted not a big deal in a studio, but for me, the ugly vs lost desk space equation just wasn't worth it. I have a fairly wide desk (92") so dumping the stands and mounting the monitors right back where the came from wasn't much of a sacrifice. Okay, if you've gotten down this far, here's point two: MD's price is nuts. If, despite my advice to the contrary, you really, really want a pair of stands, don't buy them here for sixty-five bucks, for god's sake, buy 'em where I did--at B&H for $49.99 (for the ugliest pair) or for $79 for the better pair that I bought (which are sitting in the garage now).

Wouldn't be surprised to learn they all come from the same factory in China.
