    WOW. :o

    Thank you VERY MUCH for checking on shipping those to me. ;)

    That takes me out of wanting to pay that much for your VTi rack for sure. Even if you provided the boxes it would still be more than I want to spend since my 401K is still hobbling around like a wounded chicken. :'(

    Man, I really wanted to try and fix it and also give a second opinion review of your findings on that thing.

    Thanks again Drew. That was kind of you to give us a realistic cost to try and obtain it. ;)

    I'm telling you, shipping prices are ridiculous right now unless you have a corp/business account. I didn't even want to bother going over there with one of the frame/shelf sections because I knew it was going to be excessive. But I really did spend the time and energy to go get a quote!

    This rack is rock solid. And the seller is throwing in some Polks to boot!

    I'm waiting on a set of these Herbie's Audio Lab "Giant Cone/Spike Decoupling Gliders" to arrive: http://herbiesaudiolab.net/spkrfeet.htm - They were recommended for my suspended hardwood floor in order to reduce vibrations from footfalls from entering the rack.

    Once they get here then I'll set up the new rack.

    Nice. I like those double wide racks! Totally what I would do if I had the room.

    Make sure you hit up @helipilotdoug for it! https://www.douglasconnection.com/SolidSteel-S4-Series-Wide-HiFi-Audio-Rack-SolidSteelS4series.htm

    Not sure if that's the exact one but I'm sure he can get you any model.

    No, I don't.
    But maybe I have a Sanus rack, I but not like the style you're looking at.

    But the photographer is probably the one who mounted the KEF speakers on the upside down speaker stands I posted a few days ago.

    I guess the photographer and everybody around him NEVER owned an electronics stand or rack before. :o:s

    The website isn't working quite right for me. But I did see your stand picture on their site and it is indeed showing the back of the stand, as I would use it. The wire holes belong in the back, right?

    Not bad, but I like the look and stability of 4 pole racks myself. Do those upward pointing spikes go into the bottom of the component?

    Our Solidsteel Hyperspike Prestige series (HP series) racks are real beauties, with excellent isolation.

    Or the HP-4 Travertine available by special order.

    That's been my underlying fear for 15 years now out there in my cottage. :#
