Looking to build some speaker stands for my Yamaha NS series speakers.

Which stand design in your opinion has the best looks and will do the best job?

Comments are welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Looks are purely subjective ...

 

A good rule of thumb is make them heavy and solid.

 

Build them out of steel and the heavier the better  :)

Prefer no.2 the Skylan style stands.
Built my own when I had a pair of NS1000M'S

How about these ones I made in ebonised jarrah?

These are with NS75TS which have identical dimensions to the NS1000s.They also sound much better!

I did a search on the Skylan and they sure look like they are built for task. Thanks for the recommendation.

I always liked the stands Kenrick Sound make. I think they are very similiar to the original stands NS1000 stands.

I used to use Linn Isobarik stands with mine. The width and height just happened to be spot on

Yes these are bulkier versions of the original stands.  The model number is SPS-500 and you can still get them from Japan if you like them or build your own.

Each stand weighs 45kg ........... so I only filled them with kitty litter so that the tube was not empty ............ :) ........ I hate to think what they would weigh with lead shot ........

Now that's what I'm talking about! ... nice and solid :)

 

 

 

These are the stands I built for my previous speakers ... I don't have the speakers any more but still have the stands.

 

By comparison they are only 220mm high but also weigh 45kg.

 

The base is 25mm mild steel ... the post is 75mm heavy wall RHS filled with lead shot ... and the top plate is 50mm mild steel ... spiked of course :P

I had a fair idea your stands were home made ... you don't find stands that solid in a store. :)

 

How did you make your legs ... cut and welded or did you have access to a big ar$e break press?

 

Yep ... nothing wrong with overkill ... :P

Cut and welded 100 x 25 flat .... trying to bend it at a certain point with that taper would be a pain ..... and unless you have a well designed die setup you usually end up with crush marks which have to be linished off ...... :)

I followed this thread:

 

http://liquidaudio.com.au/diy-yamaha-ns1000m-speaker-stands/

 

All wood was chopped to size for free at Bunnings.  Glued the tops together and sanded back and gave an undercoat and a couple of coats of gloss black.  Use a foam roller.  I then used some Sorbothane pads to rest the speakers on.  Solid as a rock and looked the part.

@Jakeyb77 Thanks for this link. I am going to build my new stand a it looks fairly easy. 

My NS1000x stands on a makeshift light stand at 30cm height. What is the optimum height? Heard it should be between 30-50 cm.

      Item Condition: Used - all drivers work perfectly but there is cosmetic damage. Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Camden State: New South Wales Payment Method: Cash Reason for selling: They've been collecting dust for too long. Hi,
       
      I've had these beauties tested and all drivers are functioning perfectly, they sound incredible.
       
      Matching serial numbers as indicated in the photos and they also come with a stand for each speaker. There is some cosmetic damage so please refer to the photos.
       
      Local pick up in Sydney region. I don't have an amp, i had them tested at a hifi store so you'll need to byo if you want to test, my appologies.
       
      They were left to me from a family member who has passed away, I know theres someone out there who will appreciate them.
       
      Edit: I'm no longer accepting PayPal I'm only accepting cash, my apologies to anyone wishing to use this service but there are too many scammers. Still happy to prove they're fully functional to those who are serious about the purchase.

      Edit 2: I'd also like to mention that I've included the speaker stands in the purchase price to offset the cosmetic damage. I know their valuable and I believe that's a fair trade.

      Item: Yamaha NS-1000m speakers 
      Location: Adelaide SA
      Price: $OLD
      Item Condition: Excellent for age
      Reason for selling: Looking to consolidate.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Gift or +3%, EFT
      Extra Info:
      Bought this pair last year to compare with my NS-1000 Ebony version, very similar sounding. I'd love to keep both but wife is on my case to downsize 
      This is a matching pair with original crossovers but no front grills, serial no above 80K. All edges and corners are straight, there are a few minor marks here and there but these do not detract from its overall appearance as can be seen from the pictures.
      Pick up preferred and will demo for local buyer. Also have a Yamaha CR-840 receiver FS which would go very well with this pair. 
      Happy to answer questions via PM.
      Can include Ikea stools if buyer so desire 😉

      After many months if not years searching, I finally have the opportunity to have these coveted speakers under the one roof, so I thought it would be a good idea for a video comparison having them playing side by side, utilising the same source and same music.
      For the comparison I used my trusty old Yamaha CR-1020 receiver as it allows me to connect 3 different pairs at the same time and be able to switch on the fly throughout the song, so please excuse the rudimentary technique.
      Also used a Rode VideoMic Me to capture the sound as best as I could, unfortunately it does show in the frame due to the camera and audio jack position.
       
      I'm not the best at describing what each speaker sounds like and the differences so I'll let the video do the talk, but I would love to hear your thoughts and any opinions about the comparison/setup.
       
      Cheers,
      Willmax
       
       
      Take two:
      I've moved the NS-1000M next to the NS-1000 (ebony) to be able to compare them side by side, the NS-690 was put in front with the stand a little higher (the CR-1020 receiver cannot be seen as it is behind the speaker). Hope this will allow for better comparison particularly between the two NS-1000 versions.
      For the purpose of this video all High/Mid Level adjustments for all speakers were left as Normal (12 o'clock).
