instead of placing on stands, suspend from the ceiling. "aircraft" cable works well. Form a "wooden" swing (like at a playground), place some isolation material under the monitors on the "swing"

make sure you've anchored into a ceiling joist ofd solid lumber backing (I wouldn't rely on 'swag' hooks)

Mmm, interesting idea! Even if I guess that most of people prefer to use stands rather than making holes in their ceiling, the idea look good :)

it's good to be a homeowner!

and really not any more of an infringement on the walls and ceilings than attaching diffusers, baffles, and traps!

If I could attach a photo I'd send one!

StainlessB > you actually can attach a picture even if it's not as immediate as we would hope :)
1. go to your member page on the "images" page : https://en.audiofanzine.com/users/615480/photos/
2. Click on "add an image" on the right
3. Upload an image with a title (optional)
4. Click on the image (it might not appear immediately but if you click you will see the image)
5. Right click => copy image URL (on the full size image)
6. put the image link in your post with the [img] tag

I promise that we will implement the "attach" feature in the future...

You can also do it differently: upload the picture on the "monitors" category:
