Thread: Right height for bookshelves

    Default Re: Right height for bookshelves

    While music will be about half my use, they'll also be used (with a matching Sierra 2 center and a sub) for home theater. My tv and all components are black, which is why I'm leaning towards saying black, but the bamboo looks great and they're on sale...

    Which of the finishes for the Sierra 2 are made in the US? It sounds like the natural bamboo is, what other ones are? That would certainly be a priority for me!

    The domestic made Sierra-2 cabinets are available in the same exact finishes as the towers and horizons.

    Domestic made cabinets:

    Satin Espresso
    Satin Cherry
    Natural
    Black Matte
    Satin Black Bamboo


    Standard cabinets:

    Piano Black
    Natural
    Satin Dark Cherry
    Satin Dark Espresso

    All Sierra-2 cabinets presently offered on our website are for the standard cabinets. For domestic cabinets, simply give us a call (they do cost slightly more)

    I use these stands and I love them. They come in 4 different heights.

    Hey sludgeogre,

    I'm liking those Pangea stands. They appear to have a good design at a reasonable price.

    Question; How do you feel about the stability of these stands with your Sierras? I see the top plates are only 6x6 inches square.

    I have the Sierra 1's in Piano Black and currently have them on the TP-24 stands which have been fine. However, I think my Sierras will look a touch classier on metal pedestal stands while raising them to the 26 inch height. This topic and discussion is very useful to me!

    btw, I plan to upgrade, one way or the other, to the 2's in the next year; possibly via kits.

    They are immensely stable and sturdy. They take a little while to put together, but are very high quality. Pangea has gone through a couple design iterations on their stuff and it's the best it has been right now. Most stands like this are all 6x6 top plates. I have had even larger speakers on top plates like this and it has never been an issue for me.

    Awesome! Thanks for your reply. I think they'll look better and the slight elevation will be a plus.
