RE: Who makes these stands?

I never regretted buying Sound Anchors custom-tuned for B&W Matrix 805s. More than just a tweak; a fundamental change in presentation. A rock-solid focused soundstage, without tonal coloration, with a cleaner if not more coherent treble, and a firmer bottom-end for the Kevlar driver.

BTW, I've evaluated dozens of pads for the purpose, and the best interface between the bottom of the enclosure and the three top pillars of the stand, is a tripod set of 40mm x 10mm Carbon Fiber Discs with 40mm Herbie's Audio Lab Thin grungebuster Dots (black version, with optional adhesive backing) adhered to both the top and the bottom of the discs. The recipe can be found in the AA archives.

I'm considering use of a 50mm x 20mm disc, but it will raise the 24" Sound Anchors speaker stands even higher than the 10mm thick disc, which may or may not be a good thing to expand the soundstage/imaging, while providing an even greater resonance dissipation and vibration wave blocking function. Ear level alignment is less important than how the loudspeakers actually project the soundstage into the room, since I don't always listen to the loudspeaker system on-axis.
