Need Speaker Stands for Home Theater System

Question for you all .... I just bought this:

Yamaha 730W 6.1-Ch. Home Theater System with 5-Disc Progressive-Scan DVD/CD/MP3 Player - Silver

Model: YHT-750

There are 6 speakers - 5 that I need to find stands or wall mounts for, but I'm leaning towards stands since I don't care to jack with wiring through the walls/attic.

The stands at Best Buy were about $100 for 2. The wall mounts were about $80 for 2. Do any of you know of a source where I can find more inexpensive stands?

The speakers aren't big... maybe 5 inches tall and they don't weigh much, so we're not talking about anything massive. I don't want to take the cheap route, but damn... $250 - $300 for speaker stands and/or mounts sounds insane to me.

Gracias,

But your right about the stands i had to do a lot of hunting around for some cheap stands that were sturdy enough they wouldnt get knocked over. There are not many out there.

Well, a Yamaha is system IS relatively "high-end" so I wouldnt skimp on the cables...they WILL make a difference! I just bought a similar system from Onkyo and I can tell you that if you were going to buy the same system you had better buy the high-end cables to go with it. The difference in sound quality was more than obvious.

As for stands, I made my own but I am a steel fabricator with access to all the high gloss stainless steel that I need. The stainless steel stands along with the silver system looks pretty nice and nobody can tell that they are home-made.
