Hiya,

Just ordered a set of Diamond 100 Wharfedales
http://www.harveynorman.co.nz/tv-and-audio/audio-and-home-theatre/speakers/wharfedale-diamond-100-surround-sound-speaker-package.html

I'm new to the home theatre scene, so just wondering what are some good brands of speaker stands I should use for the Wharfedale Diamond 121 Bookshelf Speakers..

 

I see some sites overseas seem to have some official wharfedale stands (http://www.musicdirect.com/p-99915-wharfedale-diamond-101-102-speaker-stands-pr.aspx?source=igodigital&) but can't find any in NZ..

Are there any particular brands that are good, is there stand 'specificaiton' that I should refer to when looking for stands or are they all generic?

Thanks in advance

I have some fantastic Dynaudio speaker stands in white gloss for sale if you are interested.  At 50% off retail but I've hardly used them.  PM me if interested.  They are gloss white though so note this if interested.

Bugger, I just dropped off two wooden rear speaker stands that had those small Wharfdale rear speakers in them to The Mary Potter collection place in Porirua. I couldnt give them away (till now).

They are probably still there, was only last week, ring them. They are opposite Advance Electrical (next to Rutherford and Bond)

You can get the Wharefdale speaker stands, just go back into Harvey Norman and ask to order some in.
