So, I learned a ton from this forum and was able to get a great set of speakers.

Being a newbie about speaker stands as well... I thought I'd ask before going out and buying something. Does the quality matter for audio quality in anyway? Should I just go out and buy something that looks good enough? Metal vs. wood?

Perhaps by some esoteric measure the material a stand is made form might be considered an influence on the sound, but the reality is there's really no audible (and more than likely even quantifiable) difference. Purchase whatever you deem appropriate.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

This probably goes without saying, but the height of the stand makes a difference. Ideally the tweeters should be at ear level, so keep that in mind when deciding on which stand to get.

Sony KDL-46HX800 ** Denon AVR-X4200W ** oppo BDP-103D
HR20-700S DirecTV HD+DVR ** Panamax 5300
Harmony One Universal Remote
Hsu HB-1 MK2 (L, R & S) ** Hsu HC-1 MK2 (C) ** Hsu VTF-15H (sub)
