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).

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