Sound Anchors....No doubt!

there are some (expensive looking) stands on a youtube video demonstrating the pulsars at an audio show. they look really solid and more elegant than sound anchors. OTOH i personally think sound anchors are an excellent choice as well, although they may need to be filled in this case with sand or lead shot. you can even order them with spikes that can raise or lower the front or back of the stand if needed. you tell them what you want and they manufacturer it from scratch if you so desire.
Speaking of filling with sand, I have each Pulsar sitting on a large Tupperware-style plastic container that measures 4 1/2" x 7" x 11". Each container is filled to the brim with fine dry beach sand. Each speaker sits on a solid wood book shelf. The sound is amazing. I don't use stands.
When I visited their room at Axpona, Jeff Joseph was using some funky looking home-brew stands that either he or a friend made in a machine shop. They appeared minimal, functional, but not very attractive. I thought Jeff needed to find something that looked more in line with the great aesthetics of the Pulsars themselves.
Sorry I somehow missed your last question. I doubt you are still on the search for stands, but if so, the medium size stand from Sound Anchors works. Or, you can tell the guys at Sound Anchors what you have, and they build the top plate to work exactly with the Pulsars (if you want to bolt them down).
