Built and painted. Some imperfections but so worth it. Brings look but also improves something... tweeter at ear level now. I used 35 cm legs  with 2 x image.jpg14mm cover. Can't rotate pics.

Those look great. I was having a look at my local Bunnings yesterday.

I was thinking of going with the 70x70mm square dressed pieces for the legs in lieue of the suggested 90x90 - which size did you go for? Also have you finished with the painting yet?

@Willmax thanks. not sure on the size but this was the only square pine leg available at my local Bunnings. Just went with my hunch and they turned out quite good. Those 40kg speakers need strong support.. Thinking of another layer of gloss paint later but the charcoal black brings good contrast.

All the best.

Ok, this might be a stupid question, and I think the answer is obvious given nobody's done it in any of the links in this thrread, but, could you put some sort of whee/castor on the bottom of your stands to make it easier to move the speakers around/adjust the angles?

 

I'm guessing there would be some loss of SQ with such an addition?

 

Great thread btw.

 

Cheers,

Skender.

If you add wheels then the legs would need bracing closer to the floor. Changing trhe look and increasing the complexity for entry level woodworking DIY. Totally doable, just a little more effort.

Since i now have floorboard, i decided to cut back my Yammies stand to 31 cm (from 40 cm thru DIY). It impacted the sound - more bass is immediately noticeable.    So far i am enjoying the change... definitely makes subs redundant for music.

This community and people here are gold mines - glad i followed general advice i.e spend on good speakers, proper positioning, quality amp, dac, cables, power cord etc.... in that order. This is turning out to be so true.

If you just want to move them on a hard surface, then at Bunnings where they sell floor protectors you will find a range of items that look like variations on teflon pads.  I think they call them sliders or something similar.  I have used them very successfully under heavy patio chairs on tiled surfaces.  As long as you don't try to use them on carpet you should be ok. They move very easily and as they are 'solid' there should be no SQ consequences.

My favourite design for NS1000M. My second attempt came near to what I expected. Still in the process of making the final one. Custom made brass spikes and shoes shown in the photo will be used with the final ones.

Those already look great as they are, you must be a perfectionist :-)

Please keep us posted on any developments.

And my hunt for the NS-1000M continues.

It has been over a year since this thread/poll was started and I finally have some updates about my speaker stands solution. 

 

What do you guys think?

This Ikea step stool could be more solid, each one can support 150kg and you can stack them to suit the height.

Good fun stands, though I'm not really sold on the colour!

Oops wrong photo above, but that is where it all started ;-)

 

I have since done a bit of DIY on the cheap and came up with these stands for the time being until I get something proper done for them in the future:

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

      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).
