Socrates7 has posted a review of the Mye Sound stands of the Magnepan 3.7 loudspeakers ($600/pair) at Confessions of a Part–time Audiophile. His conclusions:

Midrange is where the biggest benefits lie. They’ve always been the strength of the Maggies, but with the Mye stands, they’re even more natural. Very physical. Almost tangible. Freakishly good.
In summary, I got deeper, more controlled bass (at volume), treble extension and precision, and a mid range “trueness” that is even more compelling (a minor miracle with the Maggies, which already do this superlatively).
Do I recommend the Mye Stands? For their $600 asking price, this is a very easy “yes” and with no qualifications (other than to be sure to turn it up).
