As long as you are using a good solid stand, any will work. The ones NHT sells (Sanus) work very well (can be found on many other sites also).
I'm using ones from Metal Technology, which was a division of Wood Technology. I don't think they are in production any more (not sure why, they are very heavy and solid). Maybe the profit margin was not as good as their wood version - always comes down to what people buy. I'm using 4 of these (Surrounds for Threes and Wides for Twos). Here is what they look like:
As far as other brands I have used that make good stands (remember, there are Many out there that would work beyond this list):
The most important factor for you is to make sure the top plate is larger than the width of the rails of the NHT's. When you have a flat speaker bottom (pretty much all other speakers on the market) then it's not an issue, but with NHT there is no choice.
