I'm looking for some cheapish stands (poss second hand) for my new Dali Zensor 3's. For those not familiar with them, they are quite hefty at 351h x 205w x 293d and weigh 6.3kgs. At the moment they are sitting on top of a pile of books.
I've never owned stands before, so a little unclear about what I need to look for.
As I understand it, the speakers just sit on top of stands, they are not normally attached in any way? The Dali's don't appear to have any fixtures on the bottom for this. My concern is that one speaker will be situated quite near to a door and there is a chance that someone (probably my clumsy self!) will bump into it. How stable are they going to be? What size base plat and top plat should I look for to give adequate stability? I presume filling with sand will also improve stability?
Any advice greatly appreciated.
