    What with new amps coming and space for any future bits of kit being non - existant I have been thinking about a table which could hold everything

    It would need three shelves, be about 1500mm x 500mm and have adjustable feet.

    Bottom shelf would have to take about 50Kg

    Anyone know of any manufacturers of such a thing?

    Make one?

    Choose whichever kitchen work-surface you want for the shelves.

    B&Q furniture legs (in a variety of lengths) with adjustable feet - or remove the feet and fit spikes.

    Job done for a total cost of £100 or so. And with the flexibility to swap the legs should you swap for higher/lower components in the future.

    If you like isolation, make the shelves double thickness and sandwich an inner-tube between.

    Good call. Or talk to Earl about the chap he knows that does bespoke items.

    I have had similar thoughts to Stickman, but actually ended up just buying some used Atacama Equinoxe units. These are normal size (actually there's a lot of width and depth for standard equipment - I can fit both Welborne monos on a top shelf).

    These can then be placed side-by-side, with extra height on one side if you, like me, don't like to bend down to change records! That's one of my pet peeves with a lot of racks, and I find the asymmetric look pretty cool.

    So those amps - going to be 50kg then?!??

    50kg is a bit of a guess but 25kg each is probably not that far off the mark.
    each amp is approx 600 x 400 so the footprint excludes most standard racks which is why I thought of a table.

    Adjustable feet are a must as I have a not quite level concrete floor and no adjustment in the TT.

    Making something is not an option and kitchen work tops are out.

    Thanks for the link Phil, I will have a look at that sort of thing.

    If I could afford a G8 table Murray I would be buying the Gakuohs to go with it!

    I've got an Apollo Mezzo AV Rack. Although standard metal legs and glass shelves, it's double width and very strong.

    I have had over 70kgs on the bottom shelf before (currently supporting approx 57 kgs), though I did notice the glass start to bend when I went up to 95kgs, I could have supported it further but have decided to build a new rack when I redocorate the living room (hopefully in a couple of months time)

    Hutter, imported by Phonography but not cheap. New boy to the forum Russell Collinson will make you virtually anything from wood, he advertises on the Dealers Cassifieds. He's a nice chap who does excellent work.

    I think I forgot to say cheap!

    I am really not into spending loads on stands and furniture for purely cosmetic and dubious acoustic benefits.

    I have a concrete floor, as long as I can spike through the carpet to that and adjust the leg height then I am happy. As long as the stand itself doesn't bring anything to the party of course!

    Maybe an AV rack table theing is the way to go.

    I am planning for the future here really as I can just about accommodate my kit on my existing Quadraspire rack with the amps either side on tiles to keep them off the carpet

    If any one knows a good cheap source of 600x400 tiles or stone blocks I would be interested. I have seen some at Fired Earth but cheaper would be better!

    No idea where you got that idea from, apart from the copper chassis maybe,


    Kondo don't sell kits!

    I've seen the chasis and it's huge! Best put the beasties on the floor... preferably on some TAOC platforms

    not such a bad idea. My valve monoblocks went on small soiked target stands just beside each speaker, with the added advantage that speaker cable runs were very very short and interconnect the long un. It also looks nice, de-clutters your rack, removes huge amounts of heat from beneath other electronics and means you just need a standard jobbie for the rest. I put a 8/10mm glass plate ontop of the targets, cut and bevelled at the local glass merchants whilst I waited. Between the targets and the glass, tiny rubber buttons such as are sold to prevent carpets slipping. Top job.

    I agree. Each on a thick piece of mdf on the concrete floor. They aren't going to be delicate enough to warrant mollycoddling.

    A couple of lumps of MDF is certainly cheap!

    And would allow me to look at a more permanent solution at my leisure

    (Which means it won't ever happen unless forced by other circumstances)


    I could always go all audiophile and put spikes on the mdf!
