I tried calling the folks at KEF Direct and all they'd tell me is that I could try Sanus or Bell'O. But given the size of the speakers, I'm looking for something that has a substantial enough platform on which the speaker can safely sit and not tip over. If any of you has purchased stands for Q300 that you're happy with, I'd greatly appreciate a tip. Thank you!!!!smile.gif

I have some older Q series and I have both Sanus and Bell'O stands. Unless you get silly with the stands AND speakers, the risk of tipping is always there. That said, a heavy stable stand should be fine. Of the ones I own (or have owned) I prefer the Sanus Steel Foundations. Sturdy, heavy, can be filled with shot if wanted, and reasonably priced. I have the Natural Foundations, and they eventually broke at the base. The top end Sanus stands are awesome, but very expensive. Look at the Steel Foundations imo.

Unless you want their best....

I just got them in the other day and am satisfied with the purchase.

Thank you! I got Sanus stands as well. Just nervous about stability. Going to try it with BlueTac. If it doesn't work, back in the hunt!!!
