    I've always thought the goal of high end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    I had a similar layout envisioned for my gear.

    Spikes or sliders? That is the question.

    I guess I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer. I googled "toolfan inc.", to check on pricing!

    Ha sorry I wasn’t very clear that I was joking. Don’t worry, I’m sure we’ve all done the same at some point or another. I remember several times I did that... won’t go intimidated detail as to not cause myself shame :tongue:

    Toolfan, you probably could actually make and sell those on the interwebz... it could be “ToolFan’s Audio Racks Inc.” that has a nice ring to it! :smiley:

    Market demand for that kind of stuff is quite small (re niche) compared to the other stuff I'm sure his company makes.

    Plus keep in mind it would need to be shipped and I'm quite sure its NOT light so it would be pricey enough that most regular consumers (audio forums are not what I'd consider regular) wouldn't be interested.
