Norstone Bergen 2 4 Shelf : Quality hifi rack at a great price.

Take your time putting it together as the shelves are individually isolated giving clearer sound quality. It does seem a bit strange stacking each shelf on top, but so long as you get the spikes seated correctly, it’s a great unit.

Quality hifi rack at a great price. . Just purchased this for a new hifi system having looked at the atacama stands as well as other makes. Having read the reviews of this on other sites i was surprised to see some negative comments on amazon from someone who doesn’t actually own this stand. I am not sure what they were reviewing or who had put it together, but their opinion of the stability of this stand is the complete opposite of my experience. Assembly is pretty simple – leave legs loose until positioned in the spike ‘cups’ of the shelf below and then tighten. Stability is absolutely fine when everything is tightened correctly. It looks good but best of all it has improved the sound from my set-up. I also have the amp and cd on bamboo boards which fit perfectly and add further to the sound quality. The price is also much less than the atacama stands of similar style and leaves more money to spend on vinyl.I also have a norstone khalm tv cabinet which is excellent.

Norstone Bergen 2 4 Shelf for Hi-Fi Systems – Glossy Black

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Spikes and counterspikes
  • Self-gripping strap
  • Easy assembly

Not sturdy enough, especially for playing records. I’m not in the habit of writing reviews about products i don’t own, but since many potential purchasers would not be able to see this product in person, i thought it would be useful to share some thoughts, based on thoroughly examining it (and several others) in a shop. First, it looks good (although i would argue not as good as in the photos) and realistically, will do the job of holding a hi-fi. However, i was surprised at how unstable it is, in that it sways at the slightest touch. This is far from ideal in a product that is supposedly designed with the purpose of reducing vibrations between components, the building, etc. In addition, the silver disks in which the spikes sit appeared very easily scratched. It is possible that the one i was looking at had suffered some abuse. However, i feel that a great product wouldn’t have degraded to this extent. Most importantly though–and the reason i’m writing this review–i would highly recommend seeing the product in person to check whether it satisfies your standards.

Excellent product at a keen price. Require some self-assembly but needs no tools. Fits together well and fulfils its function as described. Delivered earlier than estimated date.

Once assembled and everything lined up, spikes in cups and what have you, it’s ok, looks reasonably attractive, supports equipment adequately well. Sitting on a solid floor, it’s quite immune to footfall, but i can see it would be a pain on, for example, floorboards – it does wobble a bit if bumped. And if you’re a turntable owner, you do have to be a little creative about leveling the top shelf – i have used washers between the spikes and uprights, and a handful of shims under the feet of my rega. The better half tells me the glass shelves are ‘dust magnets’. Ho-humon the whole, does the job at a reasonable price.

Spikes on each shelf lie via gravity onto the next shelf layer and need to be positioned exact to be stable. Would rather have a solid one piece structure but some people might like this unique visual appearance?.

But very careful with thisyou have to make sure the legs are nice and tight but not over tight, and don’t overload the rear of the shelves. I moved this and one of the legs was slightly out of the seat and the whole thing collapsedbut lucky nothing brokei doubt i’d go for this design again, i’d much rather have a solid unit.

Atacama Nexus Speaker Stands in – 700m : Hoping to fill will sand soon to get a better sound. But I like how they look

I needed a stand of a certain height so that speakers were perfect for my hearing when seated , these fitted the bill perfectlyi liked the fact they could be part filled to improve sound reproduction (something i am still fine tuning)well finished for the price.

Well packed and excellent quality.

Atacama Nexus Speaker Stands in Silver – 700m

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Award winning Nexus range speaker stands
  • Heavy gauge steel
  • Centre column is designed to be mass loaded with Atabites
  • The top plate is manufactured from 4mm thick steel plate
  • Dimensions: (HxWxD) 700x250x300mm

Nice stands, easy to assemble. . No much to say other than they are as nice as the picture would have you believe plus they’re a cinch to assemble.

Well packed and excellent quality.

Atacama Nexus Speaker Stands in Silver – 700m : Hoping to fill will sand soon to get a better sound. They’re a bit more flimsy than i expected.

Hoping to fill will sand soon to get a better sound. They’re a bit more flimsy than i expected. The wobble in them made it hard to work out if the stands were not level or if the stands were wobbling. Hoping to fill will sand soon to get a better sound.

I ordered these as i already had a set for my front speakers and liked the quality of those. These are nice solid built stands and the cable management is not bad either – might have been better if they could have found a way to get the bottom cable exit under the floor plate rather than above it, but that’s a small niggle. The finish is slightly changed from the original ones i bought, with more of a matt feel than the original high gloss look, but as these are for back surround speakers, it doesn’t matter for me. Overall well made and good value for money. Quite heavy, so having them arrive flat-pack helped. The stands also have the option to add sand/dampening material to the front leg for added stability.

Now installed in our newly decorated lounge. Spent a long time looking for the correct size and colour-could not have done better.

Soundstyle Z2 Stand Blk : solid pair of stands. one of the screws didn’t

After careful review of many speaker stands on the market i opted for these based on top reviews on amazon, richer sounds as well as what hifi review. Price wise these are in the same ball park as most speaker stands though a bit more expensive than some it’s definitely a case of ‘you get what you pay for’. These are really well engineered, a breeze to put together and you can tell they are well engineered, everything fits together nicely and they feel like they’ll last forever. The top plate isn’t too big either so my smallish speakers fit nicely without showing the base plate. If i was being pedantic i’d take half a star away for not having cable management but it’s simple enough to use a little bit of black tape or a small cable tie to attach the speaker cable to the rear supports out of sight. All in all a good buy and the good reviews are justified.

A pair of quality sturdy speaker stands that look stylish. Just a bit of a fiddle to build.

Very nice pieces of equipment. Really did well at defining and tightening the sound of my turntable’s speakers. There are better models out there for sure, but at this price you can’t really get much better.

Soundstyle Z2 Stand Blk : Smart speaker stands, easy to put together and give good performance.

I have owned many pairs of quality speaker stands in the past and this is undoubtedly the best to date (using with a pair of mordaunt short ms10i pearls). Soundstage is well defined, imaging solid and detail crystal clear-i feel like i have bought a brand new pair of speakersthoroughly recommended. Great service from supplier (superfi) also – same day despatch and next day delivery at no cost. Off to listen to my system again now.

Great service from the seller and very good stands at a reasonable price.

Very practical and look excellent. This is my second pair as i took speaker off the wall and needed some for the rear channels. It is tempting to buy lesser stands as they will not be seen but i wanted the same again as i was impressed with my first set. Only downside is no cable management so they hank loose.

Very nice stands, can be mass loaded. Will make your speakers sing. Would recommend to a friend.

Smart looking and well engineered product. This is a well engineered product – comes with good assembly instructions. Have tannoy speakers in ash with grey covers – these tone well with the black of the z2’s. Super sound from the speakers complimented by the height of the z2’s which project the sound around the room. Very elegant solution to the challenge of mounting bookcase speakers in a room without a bookcase with freedom to arrange the room for all uses – sitting, relaxing and listening to music.

Smart speaker stands, easy to put together and give good performance.

One of the screws didn’t fit in but i did some diy and managed to stable it. I’m wondering if you can sand fill these tubes???.

Flexson Floorstand : Read the instructions – and then construct – then perfect stand for Sonos 1s.

Easy to assemble, robust, complement the sonos 1 very well, carpet spikes very useful. Solid british engineered product.

Fairly discreet, i use these to lift my 5. 1 surrounds up behind the sofa. They’re about the right size for this.

A great addition to the excellent sonos play 1’s. These aren’t exactly cheap, but they are sturdy and well finished. What’s surprising is the sound improvement. The stereo effect seems greatly improved using the stands compared to having the play 1’s on a sideboard.

Nice looking stands for sonos:1. These are, i think, the same stands that sonos sell through their own site. Require assembly but it’s easy enough. Come with detachable metal spikes for the base for carpeted floors and plastic rounded equivalents for hard floors. The cable slots into the upright. Looks good and useful to get the 1s to a decent height for sound surround set-up.

Disappointed with the quality of the stands. Paintwork damaged and also peeling on speaker brackets. As per other reviews of the stands, additional washers are requried to secure speakers properly. Would expect more from this premium brand, not great value for money. I would expect them to resolve issues that are clearly recorded as customer feedback.

Flexson Floorstand for SONOS PLAY:1 – White (Pack of 2) : Feels sturdy and looks great. Improves the sound quality of sonos rear speakers.

Fairly discreet, i use these to lift my 5. 1 surrounds up behind the sofa. They’re about the right size for this.

Wasn’t able to get them set up properly, not all the parts fitted together, very strange.

Enhances the sound quality of our sonos speakers.

Sleek looking and good quality. My sonos play1 speaker previously sat on the floor in my conservatory which was fine but i wanted to elevate it up for sound reasons. The stand is simple to assemble, sturdy, sleek looking, slim, and doesn’t vibrate with loud music. The base is weighted so that it sits tight to the floor and doesn’t move. Comes with rubber feet for wood or time surfaces and pointy feet for carpets. Had it assembled and set up in no time.

Read the instructions – and then construct – then perfect stand for sonos 1s. . Does what you want it to do. For the price, it’s perfect. They are in, it’s working nicely and no complaints. Easy to construct – once you read the instructions properly and don’t rush it like me and do it in the wrong order.

Easily put together, tidy, sturdy. Obviously a tad on the expensive side, but you won’t regret buying them if you do.

1st package arrived with parts missing but a simple returns process and instant dispatch of a replacement seen me have my stands the next day. Well built and very clean look.

Great accessories for sonos. Flexson really do make excellent accessories for your sonos products. They compliment them excellently and make them a focal point of any room. They are made to a very high quality and are really sturdy. They fit the speaker well and easily allow you to hide the cable within the stand. The choice of feet for either carpet or hard flooring is a quality touch that shows the companies attention to detail. Basically if you have sonos products, you need flexson to add that finishing touch.

Q ACOUSTICS Q Acoustics Q3000ST Speaker Stands : Great stands for Q Acoustic Speakers.

These stands are the correct height for your speakers to be at ear level for perfect listening. The bases are weighted to reduce. Specifically made for the 3010 and 3020 speakers, these stands are the correct height for your speakers to be at ear level for perfect listening. The bases are weighted to reduce the chances of toppling over should they be knocked. They are the perfect to accompany the 3020 speakers that i have on my system.

I recently purchased a pair of acoustics 3020 speakers and was using them with heybrook stands. They sounded great but were not at ear height when listening from my sofa. These q3000st speaker stands did the job and even improved the bass response performance. If you already have or are considering buying a pair of the excellent acoustics 3020 speakers i urge you to spend the extra £100 on these stands.

Every thing about these speaker stands was great good paint finish and they support the speakers. Every thing about these speaker stands was great good paint finish and they support the speakers perfectly.

Great stands for q acoustic speakers. . Bought a couple of packs of these to go with my 5. 1 q acoustics speakers (reviewed separately – very good) as i wanted speakers in each corner of the room. The base screws into the stand, the speaker place screws to the other end. It’s all very simple, with two sizes of speaker plate included depending on whether you are using these with the 3010i speakers or 3020i speakers. Carpet grip feet are included to screw into the base, with rubber caps that you can put over the end for wooden floors. The stands are hefty – made of metal and solid quality. The speaker plates are indented to match the rubber feet on the speakers so they sit nice and snug.

Would recommend these stands to anyone that buys the q acoustic speakers.

They look good, they’ve worked well. For the price i was anticipating a more secure looking connection: a couple of bolts, rather than just rubber feet, but they’ve proved fairly immovable after six weeks. I also worried that i was going to regret blindly mixing white stands with black speakers, but the combination has worked as well as i’d hoped.

Would recommend these stands to anyone that buys the q acoustic speakers.

A little bit concerned with the lack of a bolt to connect the speaker super secure, we have a dog and grandchildren so would have prefers that option instead of just the rubber (really hard to screw in) feet sitting loosely on the plate, it is not wobbly at all so those of you who have no plans for bumping the speakers will be more than happy with this , but a dog that corners fast or curious children can be a problem.

Nice metal stands, top quality manufacture with easy assembly (they come flat packed). Also included are rubber feet to cover the carpet spikes which allow placement on ceramic/wooden flooring. Not cheap but fit and finish are 5 star. They are obviously a perfect fit for the q acoustics 3000 range, for which two sets of speakers base/stand are included in the kit.

Flexson Floorstand : Amazing heavy duty

Flexson products aren’t cheap but imo probably the best for sonos. Flexson products aren’t cheap but imo probably the best for sonos. They are well made, pretty easy to assemble with the height near perfect for listening to surround sound or just when used on their own.

Solid stands, perfect for play:1’s. The pair offer great value as they are easy to set up and if your flooring is unbalanced for whatever reason you can adjust the feet with ease so that stand will not wobble around. Also the cable management is fantastic and simple. The height of the stand is perfect as it is ear level for when you’re sitting down and that helps to provide the full dynamics of 5. 1 wireless sonos surroundsound system. However, one criticism would be that the speaker itself could be a bit more securely attached to the stand, this is only a small matter though as the product functions as it should do within no longer than 10mins after opening the box.

Expensive but really worth every penny. I don’t leave many reviews, but when i buy something that is as nice as these stands i feel like i really should. They are absolutely brilliant and look as if they are made by sonos they fit the speakers so well. They are expensive, but if you can afford to pay sonos prices for speakers then it’s a shame to put them on cheap stands ruining the ‘look’. The power cable for the speaker runs up the main shaft of the stand hiding it from view. The downside to this is that the already short plug is shortened again so unless this will sit right next to a plug socket you will probably need an extension.

Flexson Floorstand for SONOS PLAY:1 – Black (Pack of 2) : Exceeding expectations and that’s rare. Bought these flexson speaker stands to support 2 of the play 1 sonos speakers to complete a 5. I have always hated speaker stands as they look wobbly and ugly but these have exceeded my expectations. They are well made, sturdy and suitable for hard floors or carpet. Well packaged and easy to put together, i would recommend these to anyone for a solution to the rear speaker sonos challenge.

Expensive, but you can’t argue that they’re absolutely spot ‘ on perfect.

Cable tidy is neat and they’re at the perfect height for surround sound. Look fanstastic, cable tidy is neat and they’re at the perfect height for surround sound. Lose a star because they really are very expensive for what they are but moreover for how unnecessarily unclear the assembly instructions are at first glance.

Would expect more from this premium brand, not great value for money. I would expect them to resolve issues that are clearly recorded as customer feedback.

Makes sonos play 1’s sound even better. Very fast delivery easy to assemble look great and really improve the sound, thoroughly recommend to anyone with sonos looking for an improvement in sound. Also very neat with no wires showing and really look well.

Awesome quality and the floor spikes worked really well for stabilising on my deep pile carpet.

Flexson Horizontal Version Floor Stand – Perfect compliment for my play 5

I will also suggest to the company that they should put better protecting in the package to prtect the plastic inserts. Waited for them a long time but when they arrived the bottom plastic insert , between pole and baseplate, was broken on both speakers. I have glued them together for the time being but will request new plastic inserts. I will also suggest to the company that they should put better protecting in the package to prtect the plastic inserts. The quality of the stands is otherwise great and the speakers sound better now that the stands are installed.

Very suitable companion to the sonos 5 speaker. Sturdy and robust, stylish and attractive. They are heavy and, surprisingly, do not actually fix to the speakers – the (heavy) speakers sit in a cradle.

Had this on order for some time prior to product release. On receipt, i was really pleased. It was packed extremely well and on opening the carton the quality of the product was there to be seen. The stand comes in component form, but don’t let that put you off. It goes together very easily with the two allen keys provided, and the instruction leaflet is there, should you need it. In a few minutes the stand was ready to accept the play5. I opted for the included ‘soft’ feet as the stand is permanently standing on a tiled floor. It also comes with foot ‘spikes’ for those hi-fi buffs that want to isolate on a carpet. The main vertical support has been really nicely designed to hide the mains cable.

They are of real good quality and look great in the lounge, much better than the stainless steel stork stands i had previously. Very heavy and sturdy so my dog hasn’t managed to knock them over yet, which is a testament to them. They are not the cheapest of things but are good value for money.

I ordered these stands just over a week ago and to my surprise they got delivered within a few days of ordering, a very good service at this time of year. The hk stands are very much a designed unit manufactured to high standards, all the wires run within the units and out of sight. The bases are manufactured from cast iron and hold the units very firm. Speakers sit on top of the units very nicely attached to the purpose built brackets. Assembly of the units is very easy and un-complicated,you only need a screwdriver,they are the perfect match and aid the listening experience just at the correct height. The high gloss finish is designed to match the speakers exactly, they look great and expensive. If you buy you will not be disapointed.

  • Designed for HKTS 20/30/60/200 systems
  • Elegant complement to any décor
  • Seamless cable management
  • Optimal height for stunning playback

Expensive and confusing but worth it. Stupidly expensive for these two metal poles. Well worth it, they’re high quality heavy and have an exquisite finish and feel sturdy.Hugh quality svrews and high quality fitting for the screws too. The boxes however didn’t match the product description, which was worrying. I followed the instructions, which i can recommend, since assembly is a bit illogical. Just a touch of class but poorly boxed and lacking description on the box.

Great stands & ideal if like me your lacking in space. If you want quality stands & speakers then i would recommend you take a look at these. Great quality but at a price.

Expensive but they do the job and look nice.

Classy and well-made stands. These stands are expensive, but well worth it as they are far more classy and well-made than any other stand i’ve come across.

I know they quite expensive for just a pair of speaker stands but they are worth it. A good height, lovely solid material and obviously they fit the speakers perfectly. Other stands are unspecific and seem lightweight but these are class.

Expensive but they do the job and look nice.

I bought harman kordon hkts9 a year ago, with which i was very happy, but i was not getting the full benefit from it as some of the speakers were left on the floor, below the ears level and also vulnerable to dust and scratches. Today after installing these stylish stands the room looks better, the surround system makes a better sound. Now less likely to keep falling and collecting dust, as the base is heavy and the rest- lightmy only regret is that i should have bought them from the start with the speakers.

Only let down by the poor instructions. . These stands are attractive and well made, only let down by the poor instructions.

Great product, easy to setup. I have bought this product to go with harman kardon hkts16wq speaker system, very easy to setup and look great with the speaker.

Q ACOUSTICS Q Acoustics Concept 20 Speaker Stands – Perfect for Q-Acoustics Concept 20 speakers

Yes they do make a big difference (compared to using a generic stand). I’ve been listening to the c. 20s both on table (on sorbothane pads) and then on some shot filled metal stands, before trying with these. Each change has given a bigger improvement in the sound seperation and spatial shape. I still can’t believe though how much these have changed the sound for the better. Proving that it wasn’t the placebo effect; it was my wife that immediately commented how much the sound was so much more smoother and less ‘shouting’ – i guess meaning less harsh – something i hadn’t been listening out for. The speaker feet are changed for metal feet which position the speakers onto the stand. My 4* are because a better level of clarity were achieved by the addition of a slab of white tac between the top plate and base of speaker. But heh at this price point this speaker + stand combo are one of the best in terms of hifi sound quality.

You get exactly what you pay for.

Extremely heavy and solid and makes an significant improvement to how the speakers sound. Here are the specifications for the Q ACOUSTICS Q Acoustics Concept 20 Speaker Stands:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Floor Stands

Look stunning, easy to build, nice and heavy and has really made a noticeable difference to bass response, a little too much for some tunes, much smaller than they look in the photos, but excellent quality, use to mount monitor audio gold gx100’s, much more sturdy than the atacama duo 7 they replace.

Perfect for q-acoustics concept 20 speakers. Stunning stands which perfectly compliment the concept 20 speakers. I was dubious these would add anything to the sound after reading the what hi-fi review which mentioned the speakers are considerably better with these stands, and also seeing the price. They are not wrong however, after testing them with some other capable stands the difference is palpable. If you own the concept 20 speakers, then these stands are the only choice if you want to get the best out of your equipment.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Perfect for Q-Acoustics Concept 20 speakers

They are a perfect platform for my q acoustic concept 20s, and they look beautiful.

Another reviewer mentioned how these stands transform the sound from the already excellent concept 20 speakers, and i can only agree with them. The depth of sound and the low frequency response of the speakers seems to have improved since being installed on these stands (i have run the concept 20’s for about 12 months before purchasing the stands). The stands are expensive, but they are very well made, and have relatively clear self-assembly instructions.

Extremely heavy and solid and makes an significant improvement to how the speakers sound.

Matching stands make speaker placement simple. Very expensive for what they are.
