Definitive Technology StudioMonitor Stand
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
These stands were easy to assemble and my deftech's sound fantatsic sitting on them!
Designed to match Definitive's StudioMonitor 45, StudioMonitor 55, and StudioMonitor 65 bookshelf speakers, these stands feature sturdy all-metal construction. They come with wire guides to help you cleanly route wire to the speaker. You also get rubber feet to protect hardwood floors and floor spikes for extra stability on plush carpets.

Great stands. I filled them with cat litter, (never used this stuff before... I've never owned a cat). You don't need much. I'm using on a stone/ ceramic tile floor, and the pads adjust enough for the uneven surface. Look good. Only small complaint is the holes for the wire management clips are on the edge of the column that I wanted facing forward, that way the base is tuck against the base board while the speakers were away from the way wall. But I guess it wasn't designed that way.
Pros: Perfect hight for studio monitor speakers
Cons: Wire management effects setup choices.
Look great but not sure how to secure the speakers to the stand plate. They supplied screws I used Velcro! Looks good!
Pros: Looks good
Cons: Small plate for AM 65
These stands weigh a ton but they are very nice once they are assembled. I am using them to support the Def Tech Studio Monitor 65s and they seem quite stable on carpet when I added the carpet spikes. They are solidly built and they seem to be a quality product. I would expect nothing less from Definitive Technology.
Perfect stands for the perfect speakers.The StudioMonitor 65's fit on here perfectly.The weight of the speakers holds them if place.No need to drill any holes in you brand new speakers.All metal so what can you say.They will last a life time.Anyone running StudioMonitor 65's should get a pair of these stands.It's a must have
Pros: Not a one.BE careful you put the right top plate you want to use.There are 2 sizes.Use the bigger one and it will sit great.
Love these stands and price was amazing. Very sturdy and my Wharfedale Jades are probably too big for most of these types of stands, but working great. Thank you Crutchfield and Definitive!!
Pros: Sturdy Not obrusive Work well on both carpet or hardwood/tile
Cons: None I can think of
I needed some stands for my Definitive SM55's in my side Surround position. These are quite heavy, with thick base and top plates. The only thing that slightly lets them down is the large upright, which is why I gave them four stars. Like most all hollow tube stands, they impart a slight ringing. Thankfully, Definitive put a 3/4" hole in the top of each just perfect for your damping material of choice. I filled each with about 5-6 lbs of kitty litter and that did the trick. Other than that, the styling and finish is nice and blend perfectly in a Definitive or other all black system. Well worth the money!
Pros: Very strong and sturdy.
Cons: Slight ring right out the box. Need to fill with a damping substance like kitty litter or sand.
Great speaker stands. They were just what I needed. I was looking for speaker stands that would accommodate "first generation" Play 5 Sonos speakers. These worked perfectly.
The key to speaker stands is they must be rigid and non-resonant. I expect metal stands to resonate and thus require dampening. Since the top plate is metal an attachment mechanism is required. As expected, the stands are Very rigid, but quite resonant. Easily remedied with 25 pounds of #8 lead shot in each stand. Found that on line and it fills the column to within about 1/2 inch of the top. Dry sand would also work, but might be more prone to leaking from the cable mount and bottom plate. The stands correctly position Spica TC-50s : Base 13w x 11.6d. Weight 20lbs. The large plate works quite well. Speakers are attached to top plate with 4 Isolate-IT 2.25" sorbothane pads essentially making the stand and speaker a single cohesive unit. Imaging is rock solid and there are no resonances or colorations.
Pros: Simple to assemble. Very Rigid. Expect to fill Any metal stand. These are simple to fill with Dry sand or lead shot.
Cons: - none -
the stands are very strong and built to last for years
Pros: very strong stands ,easy to use
Cons: a little complicated,takes alittle while to figure out innstractions
The stand worked well for my older BP2x surround speakers. I was a little hesitant about the size of the larger platform on the stand for fitting these speakers, but they fit fairly well. I was also somewhat originally concerned about the stand height since in my previous house these speakers were attached to the wall. But after calibrating the system in the new house the sound is excellent.
Pros: Great height, stable stand
Cons: Setup directions not as clear as I would have liked. Had to redo the first one I put together.
The SM65's are the biggest in the studio monitor line and these stands work just fine. The stands come with two bases, use the large ones for any definitive texhnology speaker in the SM line.
Pros: They look great.
Cons: No way to attach speaker to the stand without using velcro or some type of tacky glue.
Very strong & solid using too hold my def tech 65 speakers
I wanted to find speaker stands that would work best for my speakers. I couldn't be happier with them. Just some advice..don't use the eight screws they give you to screw into your speakers,very bad idea. Mine stay on the stand just fine..no need for screws.
Pros: Great fit & look.
This stand is well made with black powder coated finish. The stands have good weight to them. My only complaint isn't even the stands fault, it's definitive tech's fault, and that is the plate that the speaker sits on is not made specifically made for the SM-55 (which has a depth of 12 3/8") while the large plate has a depth of 9 3/16") leaving overhang on the front and/or rear of the stand. The width of the plate is perfect for the SM-55s. Overall I am very happy with the construction and look of the stands.
Pros: Great look Great construction
Cons: Not an exact fit got the new Studio Monitor line (SM55/65) speakers
Purchased these to replace a pair of el-cheapo stands and the DefTech's are an improvement. The included smaller / larger top plates make it easier to accommodate different size speakers. These look great with my Definitive Technology Studio Monitor 55's. Wire management is simple. If you want to hide the wires drill holes in the top and bottom of the tube or buy something else! My only "complaint" is mine have a bit of wobble using the carpet spikes, but still a great improvement over the cheaper ones these replaced. Not a serious issue. Happy with my purchase.
Pros: solid, easy to assemble. The included extra larger / smaller top plates provide placement of a wider variety of bookshelf speakers.
Cons: May require adjustments using carpet spikes.
These stands are a good height for audio rooms where you are sitting in a chair. Easy to assemble. Wire control is two plastic stays on the back of the pole. Comes with two difference size top metal stands to allow for small and fairly large monitors
Pros: Strong construction Carpet spikes included Wire stays to guide wires down back of pole
Cons: Small rubber like pads to stick on top, wish they were a bit larger
Wasn't expecting the only attachment method to be with a screw. Hadn't read any of the previous comments before buying and probably wouldn't have changed my mind. But, I agree with what "JB, Wichita" wrote previously...
Cons: The top is slightly larger than the width of the Def Tech 65's
Used with Definitive SM45's. Good heavy duty stands with good base weight, All Steel construction. Would have given 5 stars if there were better means of attaching the speaker to the stand. They only provide wood screws and there was no place on the speaker to drive them. Bought some Velcro and that seems to anchor them pretty well.
Pros: All steel construction, heavy base plate, stable platform.
Cons: Only long (2.5") wood screws provided for speaker anchorage.
Great well built stands. I have been looking for stands to hold my Monitor Audio Bx2 speakers and these fit perfectly! Easy to assemble and look great.
Pros: Well built, great looking, big enough for large bookshelf speakers
A very attractive and stable speaker stand. Actually a little heavier than I thought they would be. Very easy to put together. I used locktite blue just to make sure vibration wouldn't loosen anything up. They arrived in great condition, no issues with shipping or packaging. These stands have a look that sets them apart from the other cookie cutter stands you see. These also mate up PERFECTLY to the Definitive Technology Studio Monitor series. I have the model 450 studio monitors, the base fits them perfectly and hold them securely. The indentations for the feet on the speakers line up exactly right. Makes a powerful statement to see them on the stands and this puts them at perfect height for listening. You can get others, but get these and get it right the first time!
Pros: Perfect fit and finish, they work amazing with the Studio Monitor line of speakers. The look is amazing, very modern and very sleek
Cons: they could benefit from better speaker wire concealment
My concern before ordering was stability. These stands are solidly balanced and were easy to assemble. My one and only disappointment is an inadequate wire restraining system. Wires are not contained so are visible and unkept looking.
Pros: Simple unassuming appearance. Well balanced.
Cons: Inadequate wire maintenance system.
I bought two pairs of these stands, and I am very happy with my purchase. Not only are these stands stylish but also they are well-made. These Definitive Technology stands definitely outshine my other stands. By the way, I don't own Definitive Technology speakers, but these stands are perfect for my speakers.
Pros: Quality construction and great contemporary styling.
Cons: Could have been packed better by manufacturer, but Crutchfield was great about replacing one of the damaged posts.
I ordered these because a friend had a pair for his Def Tech bookshelf speakers. The stands arrived expeditiously and well packaged. I already knew what to expect as far as quality. They are first rate stands. The only thing I will gripe about is the fact that one of them sits with it's speaker stand surface just slightly crooked. It's not a big deal... I placed a foam pad under the actual speaker so when you look at it you can't really notice it's not 100 percent straight. Not a big enough issue to return them, still, slightly annoying. But that aside, overall I'm happy with the product
Pros: Well made. Holds speakers of considerable weight without fear of toppling over. Nice design - looks cool
Cons: Top plate doesn't sit exactly flush on one stand. Slight annoyance
Stands make my SM 65's look great and sound even more awesome than they already were. Perfect height, minimalist look, to me, make a winning combination. I am taking away a star for not being able to bolt the speakers into the stand, which of course would make it more secure, however they are almost the perfect size so it doesn't matter too awfully much, just would have made me feel better. Having the wire running behind instead of inside the stands doesn't bother me because my cables are fairly thick so running them inside might have been a pain. All in all I'm glad I got these! I recommend them.
Pros: Perfect height, minimalist look makes the speakers look even better.
Cons: Cannot secure the speakers directly into the stands.
Very nice looking stand. Heavy weight making it very sturdy, easy to assemble.
Pros: Looks, sturdiness and price. 2 difference size mounting plates.
Cons: Wish wiring could be hidden inside stand.
A great, all steel, black painted, stand with a choice of stand platforms to use.. Heavy, angled, and the right height to send the sound to you at about ear level when seated.. There are cable attachments on the back of the vertical stand piece to attach your speaker cable to, so it doesn't just hang down.. These are typical of any Definitive Technology product - just perfect !
Pros: Heavy, solid wide base, not going to tip over.. Can hold a Studio Monitor Series Speaker perfectly Have clips down the back of the vertical pieces to help hide the cable Crutchfield did a great job of getting these to me quickly and damage free !
Cons: None !
Stand itself is a 5 star. However, the pole is not matched. I had to return the first order and I had to select the matching pole with the second order
Pros: excellent stand. very sturdy and well built.
Cons: mismatched pole in the package
I got a set to use on a pair of DT StudioMonitor 55 bookshelf speakers. The stands are well made, sturdy, heavy and easy to assemble, comes with the option of "spike" or "rubber" feet for installation over either carpet. or hardwood. Very stable. The top plataform is a tad shallow for the deep StudioMonitor 55, but still supports about 80% of the speaker's depth. And the width is just about perfect match. My only concern is the way it secures the speakers. It comes with 4 wood screws to screw into the speakers from the bottom. No way I would drill holes into my new speakers. Instead I may get superduty velcro to keep them in place. DT could have easily pre-installed threaded holes at the base of the speakers for easy bolt on installation (just like the do with the bases of their subwoofers). Also, the speaker wire runs behind the stand post, instead of inside of it. So it's visible from the side. Not very clean.
Pros: Sturdy, good looking speaker stand. Great match for the StudioMonitor speakers
Cons: Speaker wires run BEHIND the stands, instead of inside of it. So they are visible from the side. Also, in order to secure the speakers to the stands, you would need to drill wood screws into the base of the speakers. Not really the stand's fault but the speakers'. But since both are made by DT and the stands are specifically made for these series of speakers, they should have made it a straight bolt on system. So I don't see the benefit of buying this set over a set of aftermarket ones.
Very we'll made, sturdy and stable. They look fantastic and fit well. I received my order in 3 short days, Crutchfield is awesome!
Pros: Assemble easy and look great
Just an average speaker stand
Pros: Heavy and stable

I have some bulky speakers and wanted to get them off the floor, but also wanted speaker stands that would support the speakers. Allen was very helpful in checking the size of my speakers and the size of the stands in which I was interested. Best customer service ever [ Peggy Aug 14, 2017 ]

I wanted to find the best fitting stand for my speakers. These are maid for my speakers that's why I ordered them & not get some cheaper speaker stands instead. [ Randall Mar 07, 2016 ]
The custom fit for the Def SM45 speakers [ Benedict Amaebi Feb 09, 2016 ]
Yeah they should handle that weight and dimensions just fine [ ANDREW Aug 09, 2017 ]
My Spicas weigh 20 pounds and don't flex the stand at all. The 10 in sq speakers should fit nicely on the large top plate. My stands are on carpet with spikes and have not moved in nearly a year. I filled my stands with 25 pounds of lead shot to deaden them as they are quite resonant. I added acoustic couplers to anchor the speaker to the stand. Another option would be spikes to ensure the speaker is well coupled to the stand. I'm 110% satisfied [ Ian Eales Jul 28, 2017 ]
I used the larger (8.125" x 9.125") top plate with the SM55 speakers. I used 1" x3" permanent 'velcro' tape to secure the bottom of the speaker to the top of the stand (mainly for a little bit of child proofing). I love the stands, they serve their purpose well. [ Aaron Mar 29, 2017 ]
About the plate- For the top I use plate that a little one, big rectangular plate I used for the stand. And remember the poll going too be under angel leaning toward the wall I have sm65 and no I didn't attach them to the stand. I just can't imagine who in right mind gonna put screws into the speakers. i have no i idea why they include 8 screws and drill four halls in each small top plate! Personally I didn't used them Just have to say stand is sturdy and well balanced Hope it's helps [ Yevgeniy Mar 28, 2017 ]

These were designed specifically for a few of the Definitive Technology speakers, so we don't have an exact weight rating on them. I did some checking though, and the heaviest of the speakers they were designed for comes in at 22 pounds each. [ Jeff Sep 10, 2015 ] Staff
