I didn't get stands, but I did get wall mounts you could tilt for $25 dollars a pair on Amazon and they work great.

Thats the the good news, now here is the bad news. Almost every speaker mount or speaker stand made for this size surround speaker has a 1/4-20 thread pattern. If you look in your Samsung handbook it actually tells you these speakers have a 1/4-20 thread size........but they are wrong. The thread size on my speakers was 8 millimeter, which is almost the same. I almost went nuts until I figured it out. In the end I bought a 1/4-20 tap for $6 at Home Depot, ran it over my 8 mil threads, and now the holes are perfect 1/4-20 with no slop or play when I put in a 1/4-20 screw. You will need to do this to fit almost any mount or stand unless my speakers were the only ones in the world they used the wrong screw. I have the HW-K950/ZA

I also had trouble finding the right screw for the surrond speakers. In the end I found out that the speakers use 1/4 UNC (coarse thread) screw thread. Many stores only sell the UNF-version (fine thread).

 

The 1/4 UNC screw fits perfectly 🙂

What speaker stands are used in the Samsung demo videos and advertisements? Do they work? or are they just a 'prop'?
