I never realised how expensive lead shot would be, so it might well be sand for a start off!

Thanks Doc,

Very useful.

Who would have thought there was a crossover between Hi-Fi and teddy-bear making!

Thats the same shot I bought I think. Worked a treat. Just use a big funnel to put it into the stands saves making a mess.

Doc, I’d like to buy the best stand possible for the Cubes. Marble is not such a big issue here, so I’d like to copy your stand. Could you please tell me the measurements, and how do you attach the speakers to the stone? Thanks!

'Something Solid Stands' here, work very nice but not to everyones aesthetic eye.

I use metal frame screwed in to the wall, upon which my speakers sit. Better than any stand I've used
