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

      I had read reviews of these on MF as well as other sites and was a bit unsure of how sturdy and solidly built these would be. I was pleasantly surprised by how hefty the box was when I initially went to carry it up the stairs as some of the reviews on other sites had noted that they were on the light side. Definitely a solid weight to them.

      Setting them up was easy. A couple of screws and washers for each and they were ready to go. I debated the carpet spikes or the rubber feet and decided on the screw in rubber feet. They sit solidly, and unless you've got huge 50 pound monitors on them I can't see how they would be unstable even without filling them with sand or litter.

      The metal bits are just slightly shorter than the surrounding wood, but I'm not so picky as to sit on the floor and stare up at them so it doesn't bother me. That little gap is completely covered by the monitor platform and they look totally pro in my opinion.

      They sit right basically right at ear level for me while seated, so no complaints there either.

      Very happy with the purchase and would recommend to a friend.

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

      I bought this pair of monitor stands to hold my M-Audio Cx5 studio monitors. They ship in a compact box(which is pretty heavy for the size) and took me about 10 minutes to put them together. They look great and are solid. Both stands come with 2 channels that run the length of the stand to be filled with sand(not included) to add stability. I chose not to go that route and so far so good. I can however see how these stands could be unstable. Pets, children etc. could easily bump into the stand and it will come down. I positioned my stands out of harms way so it is all good. Just something to consider. Either way, for the price you get 2 solid good looking monitor stands. Glad I made the purchase.

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

      The DR Pro SMS1MPL Wood Studio Monitor Stands could be very nice stands--they just need to improve the quality control. For the price shipped plus ~the money for rubber and cat litter, these are probably more stable and look nicer in my studio than the cheaper SMS-6000 stands I was going to get, although the "maple" finish on these doesn't match that of my Studio RTA Creation Station Studio Desk (the latter's is a tad darker/redder). I'm not sure how these compare to the more expensive American Recorder Technologies version, which appears to be identical minus the foam pads and plus a longer warranty (lifetime instead of 5-year).
      The stands are just over 37" tall including the foam pads and rubber feet or carpet spikes (it includes both, as well as vinyl feet to go under the spikes on a hard floor, and cable clips you can adhere to the back). The feet/spikes screw in to the bottom of the stands, so you can level them, and they seem sturdy. I didn't use the included pads, as I already had some Auralex Monitor Isolation Pads, which raise the speakers another 2" (not ideal when the stands are already 1" too tall--I might need to get a taller chair) but should provide better isolation and support. (The included pads reduce the supporting surface from 8" x 9" to about 6" x 7". The Auralex pads are the perfect width at 8".)

      For fill, I shopped around and settled on cat litter as the cheapest convenient option--Home Depot's sand had accrued some moisture, so I went to Walmart and grabbed a 20-lb jug of Cat's Pride scoop litter, which is cheap, fine enough to funnel through the 3/8" fill holes (you need a small funnel), and comes in an easy-to-pour jug. It ended up taking about half the jug to fill the columns. Not as much weight as sand or shot, but the metal no longer resonates, and that's what matters most.
      When I took mine out of the box, one of the corners of one of the wood columns was smashed in a bit. Oh well, I'll put that corner in the back and it won't be too noticeable. The bigger problem is the metal columns came shorter than the wood columns (the stands are each made up of two square metal columns surrounded by an H-shaped column of veneered particle board), meaning if you try to tighten it all together, there will be a gap (no gasket seal on top) and you'll likely split the top wood piece around the washers. To solve this problem, I ordered an EPR Sheet, 60 Durometer, Black, 3/32" Thick, 12" Width, 12" Length (cheapest black sheet rubber of suitable thickness I could find), cut eight 1.5" squares of it with a utility knife, used a hole punch to put a hole in the center of each, and stacked them two high on top of each metal column before putting the top gasket and platform on. While not ideal, they fill in and seal the gap well enough and don't look bad if you happen to sit on the floor and look up at them. I still had to be careful not to overtighten the bolts.
