I have a pair of Totem Mani-2s and use May Audio stands. They work very well.

I have the dedicated Totem stands for my model 1's and they are ok. But if I were to do it again I would look into the Sound Anchor stands for about the same money. I think they may be more "dead" than the totems which to me don't seem to be as inert as they should be even though they are filled w/sand and lead shot.
I tried a few brands at different stores. I had trouble finding people's suggestions in the stores that were near me. But the suggestions gave me a sense that I needed a good quality stand that can be filled to make it more stable. Sonus fit the bill, well made, not terrible to look at and it was selling for a good price from a dealer that I like. I would have preferred the Sonus R series but they were selling for more than I wanted to pay. So I went with the next step down and the dealer threw in Spike Shoes. I'm trying them now, and I may upgrade in time. I have a friend who uses the Racing Cones you suggested. I may borrow them and see what they are like.
