Appropriate table stands for 8340?

Hi all,

Which are the suitable table stands (and stand plates) for the Genelec 8340 APM (SAM)?

I had a look in the Accessories Catalogue but must admit that I'm still confused about compabilities, as the naming scheme is a little obtuse. I'm sure the answer is very straight-forward and can be easily cleared up however, so thank you for that.

Having looked around, I wonder if the K&M 23310 Table Stand + Genelec Z8260-450B is the proper combination for 8340 APM?

Are the L-shaped stands also compatible in "upright" position (not lying down)?

I am looking for some stands that can raise the tweeters to ear-height on my desk. Unfortunately, it is a plain desk with no elevated parts, so if there are any table stands that are generally tall enough it would be good (I'm just slightly shorter than average height, so having measured I think about 170 mm as the K&M 23310 would be okay although maybe 190-200 mm would be better).

This is the adapter plate you need: Genelec Z8040-408

Genelec Z8260-450B is for the 8260A's.

K&M 23310 Table Stand will work but it may be a little top heavy with the XX40's, those stands work best for the smaller models XX1X-XX3X.

Manutal, thanks for the help!

Do you know of any other table stands that willl work with XX40's, which are better suited than the K&M 23310?

Edit: I ordered for the 8340 APM, the Genelec Z8040-408 standing plate and K&M 23310 table stand. I had missed the compability chart on p. 25: https://www.genelec.com/sites/default/files/media/Studio%20monitors/Accessories/genelec-accessories-catalog-bbage045g.pdf

 It does seem to indicate that they are compatible, but I will be a little careful if they are top-heavy.
