All products are constructed with durable solid steel, designed for easy mobility and flexibility, and finished smoothly and beautifully. All units are equipped with long cord electric outlets and are readily assembled. VTI residential lines mainly include audio / video racks and speaker stands for home theatre use. All the audio racks are constructed with steel frame and tempered glass or MDF shelves.
VTI racks offer deeper and taller shelving space to accommodate the most-up-to date electronic equipment. Both the stackable and fixed racks give you the most beautiful display of your equipment matching with your furniture at home. VTI speaker stands, on the other hand, are all metal construction with cast iron base. This special feature not only offers flexible and beautiful design, but also stability and sturdiness. The rapid development of technology is changing our world. VTI, as a manufacturer, is also constantly updating their design and products to accommodate the changes.

These stands, as others have pointed out, are sturdy enough on initial construction, with a few minor concerns. Which are: the slightly shifting top plate (something which could have been remedied with one more bolt), the ability to actually fill these w/ damping material, and the color (minor). I am using a rather large Dynaudio speaker on these, and they seem to rest quite comfortably atop of these stands, making them good for larger speakers. They also look half-way attractive, too, with the matte silver finish (others have noted the color-to my eye, it's probably more a matter of taste, and I would not be off put by this. They do not look far off in color from what I recollect the silver 805 stands to look like).
Not perfect, but still good.

This stand is very good in context of its price range, but I thought I should let in on a few issues that may bug people.
Great Quality stand a good price
Alan from Chicago,IL– Verified Buyer
This is an excellent quality product for the price. I purchased the black version and it has a nice rough finish. Holds up my 35lbs.+ bookshelves with ease. The base is a very heavy cast iron and I don't feel the need for extra dampening with sand/leadshot.
Good Stuff, could be improved

The stands (in black) are very attractive and match my B&W 602's perfectly. There was a marked improvement in sound, too. I have two small nits...The biggest being that the plastic cups included for the spikes to rest in (preventing hardwood floor damage) are pretty useless. The tiny indentation for the spike is so small that you get no feedback when the cup is engaged. Trying to put four of these on is a lesson in frustration. If one comes unseated after your speakers are attached, it's a dicey proposition to get it back on without toppling the whole rig. The other, lesser thing is that the cable pass through is too small if you have heavy wire with bananas already installed. That doesn't bother me too much.
I'm Very Happy

I purchased these for a pair of Klipsch RB81 II speakers. The transaction was easy, the product arrived quickly and assembly was a breeze. They really do look nice and the speakers sound much better than before. Highly recommended!
Good speaker stands

I don't think you can fill these stands with sand as it will leak out of the kind of cheap hole cover -- you could make your own seal I suppose. I drilled new holes in the mounting plates to match my B&W mounting screws to add stability -- a minor annoyance and to be expected with universal speaker stands. BTW B&W speaker stands cost 5x more.
These stands are a great value
Leon from Springfield, VA– Verified Buyer
I am extremely satisfied with the VTI UF stands that I purchased. I have found them to be high quality, attractive, and sturdy (my bookshelf speakers are 55 lbs each). They were easy to assemble, but using the wire management feature was a little tricky; but once I did the first one, the second was easy. The stands are generally stable, but it would have been nice if the base plate and top plate were an inch larger in each dimension.I got a great price [...] through Wayfair, with free shipping. I highly recommend both the stands and store.
Good enough with minor problems

The stands are very sturdy even on carpet. My only issue is that my speakers Klipsch rs-62 have a weird shape (think home plate in baseball) and there is no way to put the weird peg on the rectangle stand.
Great stands, great price!
CJC from St. Petersburg, FL
I'm using the stands with an older pair of B&W 600 large bookshelf speakers. I added sand to the hollow supports in the stands which I think is a noticable improvement. I'm very pleased with the construction, appearance, performance, and especially the price. You can't go wrong!
