This has been bothering me for a long time. I always stated in these forums my eyes are as sensitive as my ears and I can't buy ugly no matter how functional it may be.\n\nI was looking for speaker stands for years and years and would only cringe at all those single, double, triple (any number) of ugly metal pipes welded between two metal sheets (B&W rectangular pipes are just the same to me).\n\nNot only do I like these (and I very much do), not only are they, in fact cheaper than all those ugly pipes, they are CUSTOM and I can tailor them to my speakers!!!\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nOh, and guys, let it rup, hold nothing back. I like'em so much, I won't mind. These are the ones.
