I'd pay $1 for a shelf like this 10 times over, but to get one that the owners had painted black? Even more awesome. Tripled the amount of knicknacks I could store in the same place. This is about eye level when standing.
Yes, I keep my speakers elevated. I don't like the sound of music partially blocked by furniture. Fucks the equalization all up.
EARTHQUAKE UPDATE: I actually had this picture open in my tag-check view (a local HTML file generated with my pictures, tags to the right of them, caption below them, so I can get them just right *before* uploading) .... When the 20110823 Virginia Earthquake struck, a few of these fell over, and a few fell completely off the shelf. So this picture becomes the "before earthquake" picture :)
