Are the Apollo AZ/5s speaker stands any good?
Just auditioned the B&W685 theatre speaker package with a Yamaha DSP-AX863SE amp (which sounded brilliant!) and I was recommended the Apollo AZ/5 speaker stands to put the 685s on (they were sitting on Soundstyle Z2s during the demo): http://www.apollohifi.co.uk/Speaker/Speaker.html
I was told that they were just as good as the Partington Super Dreadnought, but at £99.95 compared to the Dreadnought's £180 could this be true?
I realise that price doesn't necessarily dictate how good a product is, but as the only unknown entity in the system does anyone have these stands and can comment on how good they are? At 500mm high they also looked potentially a little small. Any thoughts people?
Thanks in advance for the help.
