    Hard to tell from the pics but the cross members seem thin. Some kinda steel, but plate stock. A c-channel or box section would be better for sag. Harder to machine for a DIYer. The Adona racks use a similar design, but welded box section for the cross members.

    Nice looking Quadraspire on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Quadraspire-SVT-5-Shelf-Rack-Black-Bamboo-w-Black-Hardware/112827056091

    Tempting.

    s-l1600.jpg

    Edit: I don't know why the auction title and description says that the shelf material bamboo. I asked the seller about that, because they clearly look like the standard wood shelves with a black veneer.

    Edit2: The seller is going to take more photos of the shelves and the original box for me. This is a pretty slamming deal considering new this would go for "$2,245".

    Hey, it's local! "Item location: San Francisco, California, United States"

    It's an art piece! I did read that a "hanging rack" is supposed to be good.

    Interesting concept. I wonder if the hanging rods are dampened to the main structure? That would isolate it from ground even further.

    I don't know man. I'm calling form over function on this one. I could be wrong though.

    Adjustability is what I was after considering what some amps require. Fixed shelves is a bit limiting.

    This makes me extremely jealous.
    It also makes my system look cheap:

    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'.

    Mike check out those CD racks, they even have spiked feet.

  • HermitismHermitism Posts: 2,500
    I'm guessing the spiked feet on the CD racks are to help keep them from falling over on carpet. They are so tall and narrow, one small bump could knock them over if they were sitting on top of padded carpet with normal feet. Just a guess though. They don't look all that straight to begin with, unless the camera lens is creating the curve.

    They're actually hideous and I hate them. I would never store my CDs like that.

    The seller provided me additional photos of the Quadraspire, supposedly to prove that the shelves are bamboo? They're clearly not. And he can write whatever he wants on the box label.

    Maybe "BB" stands for "Basic Black" (spray paint), "Buffalo Birch", "Beautiful Butternut" or "Batman Balsam".
