I got this stand for my MP11SE, much cheaper than many of those mentioned. It is pretty stable, only wobbles a little when I get my most exuberant expressiveness going. It could be more attractive but for home use I think it looks nicer than the K&M 18950.

I've googled a bit about these, and the E44. They apparently have a wide stereo field, which is what I would need.
My iLoud Micro monitors are good by I feel they're a bit 'underwhelming' at times.

My MP11SE is in the living area, which is a bit comparable to a loft, i.e. open space. I was considering the iLoud MTM's but horizonal placement is not recommended by the manufacturer (and reviews I've read), even though they include supports for horizontal placement in the box.
These Presonus ones are designed for horizontal placement which is what I would want. I would place them pointing straight ahead, not towards me at an angle. Might go for a couple of Zaor Miza V36 or V42 stands.

How is the sound quality in your honest opinion ? Excellent for acoustic piano, or just good ? I'm also looking at the E44 ones, a bit smaller, as I feel the E66 might be overkill.
Also, I haven't got the faintest idea about calibrating monitors, not an audiophile. I especially want the whole 'sonic range' to be excellent, lows, mids, and highs. I like a clear sound, with good trebble, but I also want enough bass (I hate it when speakers sound tinny).
I know too much bass is probably the bane of anyone who knows all about setting up the perfect studio sound, but I happen to like it.
So, in other words, I want all 88 notes of the piano to sound perfect, clear in the treble, full in the middle, and powerful like a 9 foot concert grand in the low-end.

Would these E66 do the trick ?

For that behemoth I'd go with either On-Stage WS8540, or the more heavy duty model On-Stage WS8550. Strong and looks good.

I'm very happy with the E66s now they are horizontal and I've tweaked the settings on the back but I'm no expert and I happened to have them from another setup. Prior to using them with my piano I had some me Adam A7X's but much preferred the E66's.

There's a YouTube video of Pianoman Chuck talking about them connected to his MP11 if you've not seen it.



Those stands look great though my next upgrade will involve me trying to hide the monitor stands and mount the speakers behind the piano.

I’ve seen that Youtube video, all of them, really.
Not much difference sonic wise between these and the iloud mtm’s, other than the fact that the E66s have a much wider field. Plus, they visually give the impression of being better quality, which I think they are...

Those Zaor stands are indeed very nice smile
It’s going to cost me a few bob but I like the way your setup looks. Hope you don’t mind me copying it ( except for the monitor stands, then wink

I can appreciate an honest answer.

Could you explain what is unappealing to you? Curiosity killed the cat.

I personally don't use this stand, but owned one years ago when I was using a heavy digital piano.

The Yamaha lg800 looks like a really solid stand and kind of looks like it’s part of the mp11se, i.e. more akin to a proper furniture stand like you can get for the ES8 for example...
I’m sure that On Stage stand is good quality but as far as looks are concerned, it wouldn’t really be that much diffferent friom,the K&M stand I have now.

But thanks for,the suggestion wink

On-Stage = designed for stage and not designed for look and home. Do you fold your stand every day at home?
