5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressed, 11 Feb 2009
The Alphason AD100-S Speaker Stands were easy to put together and look excellent. They are robust, quality, speaker stands.

The bracket (it comes with different brackets to ensure universal fit) hides the cabling and screw connection away, plus the cable goes through the tube, making it all neat and tidy (it was easy to get the cable through the tube).

This product is a perfect fit for my Sony DAV-DZ260 speakers. The shade of silver matches the speakers exactly. It just looks like the speaker stand and the speaker are one unit, looking from both the front and the rear.

1.0 out of 5 stars tons of hassle, 24 Jan 2007
I got this free with the Netgear DG834PN router. The router is great, I highly recommend it. The WPN111 on the other hand has caused me so much bother.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gahan can do it., 10 Jun 2003
I bought this last night. Being a fan of Depeche Mode something i felt a little obliged to do. I didn't expect to actually like this album but my expectations were SO wrong!
I tucked my walkman into my pocket, set my earphones and off i went for a midnight walk. I've now listened to the album 3 times over and it's not even 24 hours after buying it!
Gahan really can do it without Depeche Mode, though Mode it may not be, Gahans voice cannot be mistaken for another. It's pretty obvious that he's drawn on personal experience for his lyrics and that adds to the way in which the songs draw you in.
Well done Dave!
