• The SF26 speaker stands from Sanus manage to
look like factory original stands in that they compliment a wide range
of bookshelf loudspeakers, big and small, which is all you can ask from a
third party stand.
• The SF26 is an ideal match for many large
bookshelf speakers in that it places many tweeters and/or midrange
drivers at ear level.
• The SF26 is ideal for left and right mains
as well as rear channels though for center channel speakers I'd
recommend either the SFC 18 or 22, which mate well with the SF26 and the
rest of the Foundation Steel Series.
• For those who prefer more mass the SF26 will allow you to add more weight by way of sand or shot. Low Points
The included cable routing channel isn't really designed for many of
today's higher-end cables, cable such as my Transparent speaker cable.
The rubber feet that accept either hard wood floor stoppers and/or the
carpet piercing spikes are not the most intuitive items to attach to the
base during the first steps of assembly. Competition and Comparisons
I said earlier virtually every mount manufacturer makes and/or offers a
line of speaker stands. A few other companies to consider in this arena
are OmniMount, Solid Steel and Mapleshade
. For more on these stands as well as others please check out Home
Theater Review's AV Racks and Furniture page
just under $170 a pair the SF26 speaker stands from Sanus are difficult
if not near impossible to fault. They look great, provide a sturdy and
reliable surface with which to place your beloved bookshelf speakers and
don't cost a fortune. While you can spend more and get something a bit
more robust from Sanus' own Ultimate Series, for me the Steel Series and
the FS26 is all the stand I require. Highly recommended.Additional Resources
