    id buy the floor stands with some foam risers, depending on your driver size having the speakers off the desk gives you more space and the proper height, which i think is over looked in monitor placement, i looked at the video and went to the comments knowing someone would say about the speakers being on different levels for the test, which does make the test pointless, i personally have used the iso stands, there good, i currently use floor stands like the adam stands, very little difference in the sound.. If you have the space get the stands

    I was certain I was gonna get the iso acoustic stands, they looked great, however after handling them in store, they seemed really cheap and flimsy. After a back and forth battle with myself I decided to go with a set of mopads. best decision I made. Each one comes in 4 foam parts, enabling you to angle your monitors upward, downward, or level, depending on listening level. and the cheap price is a good selling point too!

    Yeah a lot of the reviews said they were of a poor construction but then a lot really rated them. May go for the used ones on Amazon to take the edge off the price but i'll check out the mopads as well - cheers.

    I've got a pair of the isoacoustics and I like em a lot. I immediately noticed a big difference in sound when I set them up. They're pretty sturdy as well. I have never used mo pads or anything else though.

    Cheers - I've ended up going with the Mopads due to the price. If I come into some cash down the line I'll probably give the Isos a go.
