    Default Plateau L-36

    How about these Plateaus from Racks & Stands? They are sand-fillable and seem reasonably priced at $70.

    And if you would like metal ones:

    I agree. I like those. Appears to have a nice large floor base for stability.

    Default remote control stand

    i saw over at avs a guy's HT setup which included stainless steel bases/glass top speaker stands, and also a smaller version of these for his remotes. looked very sexy - anyone have a clue who would supply these kind of bad boys?

    I think those a both ugly. I prefer round pillars. I really like the styling of the ones in my first post. Too bad they don't make a 36" model.

    Looks like it's Wharfedale & it comes in 24" & 28" flavors.

    hm.. could be. i remember the top being a lot smaller in surface area, though.

    edit: damn nice stands, though.

    I really like these:

    but I'm also considering the adjustable model of these:

    The can get the adjustable ones about $25 cheaper than the studiotechs but something tells me that I won't care for them that much.

    For some reason I'm having a hard time shelling out over $100 for speaker stands but I really want fillable ones since I'm going with such tall stands. Does anyone else use their 170s for nearfield and can recommend a stand?

    I use 30" stands which puts the top of the 170's at approx. 42" above the floor.

    When I first set them up they seemed too high. After a while I realized this was perfect, at least in my setup. I think this is the recommended height by Ascend as well.

    I use the Wood Technology MU-30 stands that Mag Neato mentioned. I believe 30" is about what Ascend recommends for the 170. They've worked fine for me -- they look nice with the 170s, they're stable, they're fillable, and you can route the speaker cable down through one of the support columns and out through the base. I got them from Hififorless for about $90 delivered. Try this link: http://www.hififorless.com/categorie...categoryid=696

    Good luck.
