I just received my new M22s, and they sound wonderful. Only one problem: the SS16 stands failed the Spouse Test. On the web site, the SS16s appear to be cherry and tan, but in fact they are black and aluminum. It's the aluminum that fails the Test.
Can anyone suggest an alternative? I need stands that (1) are in the 16-20" range; (2) have top plates small enough to accommodate the M22s; (3) are extremely solid and tip-resistant (able to withstand two small boys); and (4) are aesthetically pleasing ("elegant" and black and/or cherry). Help!
