    Comments about DR Pro DRPRO SMS1BK Wood Studio Monitor Stand (Pair):

    These stands are great given the price, but that's not to say they don't have their issues.

    Construction: The stand consists of 2 wooden boards held together by a small solid compressed wooden center. 2 plastic fill tubes fill the gaps on either side of the solid center piece in between the boards (I should have taken a picture)... basically if you're looking at the front or back, you see the plastic fill tubes, if you're looking at either side, you're looking at the wooden boards.

    The top and bottom of the stands screw into the plastic fill tubes... I was a little disappointed with this design aspect, but it does feel quite solid.

    I highly suggest filling these stands. They feel considerably more solid filled. My beef here is that the fill holes are extremely small! I couldn't find a funnel that actually fit in them. I had to physically hold the smallest funnel I could find on the hole while filling it, which I feel is notable, but not a big deal either. IMPORTANT: you must use a fill material that will not clump because the fill holes are so small. I suggest pool sandfilter sand. You can find it at any pool store, or even Home Depot (in the pool supply section, not the building materials!) for a 50lb bag for about the price of a burger at Five Guys... unfortunately, you probably only need about a quarter of that!

    I'm also not impressed with either of the feet options included... I won't be using them.

    All that said, I'm not unhappy with the purchase... they hold my monitors well and they look nice. I would expect them to last a long time in a stationary situation, which I'm sure applies to most potential buyers; however, I wouldn't expect them to last nearly as long for those who would subject them to any kind of road applications.

      i think for the money they are a great stand .. they were very easy to set up.. i do agree with the sand idea i haven't added sand yet but am planning on it. the top section that holds the monitor looked a little small but is holding my m-audio bx8a's very well..they are also a great hight for a normal computer chair. all in all great stand and im happy.

      Quality Control Issues, But Nice

            Comments about DR Pro DRPRO SMS1BK Wood Studio Monitor Stand (Pair):

            With the first pair I ordered, one of the stands was manufactured incorrectly, such that one of the two support beams sat several centimeters higher than the other, meaning the top panel could not attach properly to support column. I exchanged it for another pair, and both work as expected now.

            They are sturdy and attractive. This is my first pair of monitor stands, so I don't really have a basis for comparison, but they have served their purpose thus far. I have not yet filled the support columns, but they do offer the ability to do so.

            If you don't mind taking a risk on getting a dud and being bothered to exchange, these appear to be of good quality when done right.

                Cable organizer tabs that these stands come with don't stick very well or hold. I tried to use them to secure the power cord and xlr speaker cable but they kept popping off. Other than that minor annoyance these have been great. Very stable even without the extra weight added to the stands.

                  Comments about DR Pro DRPRO SMS1BK Wood Studio Monitor Stand (Pair):

                  I'm strictly an amateur musician and play around at recording/computer audio, etc. I have a Studio RTA Creation Station desk, and previously just placed my monitors on the top "bridge" of the desk. But I needed more room, so decided to get speaker stands. I considered various alternatives: 1. Engineering and building something from available materials, and plans from the web; 2. Metal stands (i.e., On-Stage Stands SMS-6000 Monitor Stands) 3. Wood stands.

                  After doing some basic engineering, I determined that the parts that I'd have to buy and then build wouldn't save that much money...and my engineering could be off, i.e., I didn't want to experiment with no real savings. So alternative 1 was off the table.

                  So I purchased On-Stage Stands SMS-6000 Monitor Stands. Pretty solid, but in a short time I determined that I wasn't satisfied with the stability of the narrow neck of the stand, and the base is actually quite large,so I dispensed with those .

                  Finally, I looked at the DRPRO SMS1BK Wood Studio Monitor Stand. Seemed solid and well priced. Bought them. They were well packaged and they took less than five minutes to actually assemble. My only criticism is that the neoprene/foam pad on the top of the stands could be a bit thicker and the full size of the top (it's about 1/4" thick, and about 1.5" smaller on all dimensions than the actual top of the stand). But that is easily remedied if necessary.

                  Recommendation on use...do as the instructions suggest and fill with sand during the construction process. Adds amazing stability, and further dampening . Go to a local home center and get SILICA SAND...very fine, goes right in and stays dry (just don't breathe its dust). I first tried using "play" sand, but it came out of the bag wet.

                  Finally, I placed the speakers on the stands. WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN SOUND! While that wasn't my objective (i.e., improving the sound), having my monitors (KRK Rokit5)on these sand-filled rock-stable stands is the best change in my sound/production system I've ever made! And it freed up much needed space on my desk. Wish I had gotten these earlier!

                    I needed to elevate a pair of Tannoy monitors, and these stands fit the bill quite nicely. Sturdy, functional and well-designed. Three feet tall is perfect.

                        Decent Monitor Stands

                        By Rick-DRvdO

                        from Washington, DC

                        Comments about DR Pro DRPRO SMS1BK Wood Studio Monitor Stand (Pair):

                        Overall, these are bargain-priced, yet sturdy monitor stands that will hold just about any prosumer to pro level monitor with up to 8" woofers. If you're buying or have larger or ultra high end reference monitors, you may want to invest in larger speaker stands to keep your monitors safe.
                        These are monitor stands. Their feature is holding monitors. The do this adequately and even when not filled with sand, they seem sturdy and unlikely to tip over.
                        I'm dropping the rating a couple notches due to my stands having a few small chips and dings, but I attribute that more to shipping damage than subpar quality. Still, denser wood or pressboard wouldn't chip this easily. Overall, they look great.
                        These are an outstanding value. Some monitors stands are two to three more times expensive, but these do the job I need. I may even get a second paid for my A+B mix monitors.
