    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.

    Hey Doug,

    With the Star Sound products, your gear does not sit directly on the platform. They use the points to elevate your product and the points are able to be placed anywhere through the slots. You can use three, four, or however many you want to ensure stability. Their products are not built on the idea of isolation, but vibration management. The rack is steady but is absolutely meant to vibrate. The energy transfers to the floor so it takes the resonance out of the system so to speak.

    While that picture doesn't show it, they do have caps that go on the points so that you don't scratch your gear. He has some really intuitive designs. I ran into several of his clients during the show who recognized it and they loved the gear. They confirmed much of what Robert told me so it gave me more reassurance that he knew what he was doing.

    They even make platforms that could be used in conjunction with existing stands - which is what my BoX was sitting on at AXPONA.

    Did you notice any audible difference from your previous Ultrasonic rack?

    I'm not going to dance down that road this time. My room is a disaster. My components are cold. I've been listening to a completely different system for a week.

    I know it's making a difference or I wouldn't have invested in the product. Right now I don't even have all the necessary pieces. What I heard at AXPONA was more than enough to convince me the products are legit.

    I can say without a doubt the products definitely pass QC. >:)
  • DSkipDSkip Posts: 15,961
    I can also say that even bough the Evolution 845 extends past the shelf in the back - where it is heaviest - the amp is dead solid. It isn't going anywhere. I have four points stabilizing it and it's doing the job exceptionally well.

    He did want to put that 30 lb. TT on top again didn't he. :#

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

    He is sensitive to Monoprice smoke, humming, low-res files, and wobbly racks. This could be a dangerous rescue. :p

    Well, while we have to wait some more, here's my new storage / test rack. :p I hope to put components on this and be able to get to the backs easy as just swinging this thing around or stepping behing it. I plan on bridging a pair of Adcom 555II's into mono while on this thing soon. I want to see what they do for the Cerwin Vega's I re-foamed 6 months ago.

    That's an interesting looking piece, Tony. Where'd you find that?
    How thick are those shelves? Are they stout?
    Are you planning to stack those amps in some fashion on the floor shelf?

    It was on Craigslist for 1 1/2 months and he finally reduced it enough and I went and got it. 80.00. He said he paid 300.00 for it. It's like brand new!

    It was wobbly but tightening the bolts on that top plate solidified it nicely. I re-tightened all the nuts and bolts but just the top ones were loose.

    The shelves are folded steel and very thick steel at that. It's ALL industrial. Even the wheels are hard plastic so no flattening. It's very stable as it is.

    I'm thinking of putting the 555II's higher up. Probably on the 2 shelves above the base shelf. Easier on my back. But if the weight makes the rack flex, I'll stack them on the base plate. Probably tomorrow, while it's raining. ;) B)

    TM, you know I would have made you a deal on my ULine's. 800lb payload per shelf. Pick up in Houston?
