Default Help with Speaker mounts/stands.... newb alert!

I just bought an Onkyo S6200, and I'm going to set it up for 5.1 use. I've been analyzing my apartment and I think that speaker stands would be the best use for them. So I'm wondering, which stands would be great for two surround/rear speakers? Bang for the buck is the phrase of the day!

Also, I'm in Canada (Toronto) so model numbers are appreciated much more than links (if I had a nickel for everytime I've seen "DOES NOT SHIP OUTSIDE CON US")

Thanks!

Monoprice sells a set of speakers stands for around $15 that should work. They sell wall mounts and pretty much everything else you will need at great prices like HDMI cables for around $7. They ship to Canada, so I will link away...

Thanks, but I'm hesitant to buy monoprice stands after reading that they're not too stable. In the end I went with a set of B-Tech BT11 stands. Thanks!

That is true about the stability when using larger/heavier speakers with these stands. I have my 7 pound Velodyne speakes on the Monoprice stands for my surrounds. They hold them up pretty well suprisingly, especially since they are on thick plush carpet. But they would tip over if brushed up against. But since they are surrounds and not in the way of anything, not an issue.

Since your 6200 speakers are only between 2 and 2.5 pounds, I would think they would of held them up fine and would be quite stable. As long as you stay below the 5 pound requirement, You will be fine in most cases.
