I have a custom made rack that was used in my office to house my Rega gear. The rack was made by Audiophile Vibration Control. The materials used are ApplePly Birch and a 1/4" cork material. From their website:

Think of our cork material as a cross between cork and linoleum. It contains granulated cork, linseed oil, powdered pigments and resin binders. It is very dense as well as being extremely durable. The two outer layers of cork add considerable mass and form an attractive, durable, non-skid and self healing surface that gives slightly. These same attributes make it an excellent choice for extensional vibration damping. We offer it in several color choices, depending on the product.

The ApplePly is an American made product using birch inner plies (imported from Russian and Poland) with maple faces bonded with urea-formaldehyde free soy based adhesives. The ApplePly thickness varies depending on the product ranging from ¾” thick 13 ply in our isolation blocks all the way up to a massive 2” thick 36 ply in our thickest equipment platforms.

We chose ApplePly for several reasons. It is very dense while at the same time remaining very stiff and unbendable over time. Having multiple, crosshatched layers laminated together make it very good at dissipating vibrations even before the outer cork layers have been applied. Where materials like solid wood, glass and stone tend to ring ApplePly’s multiple layers make it an excellent choice for eliminating unwanted vibrations

When the ApplePly and the cork are combined there is a synergistic affect creating a very high mass, low resonance combination that stops vibrations cold.


I have sold my Rega gear - reason for the sale of this fine mini-rack. The useable area on the shelves are 13" deep x 10.5" wide with 4" between shelves.

$175 and buyer pays shipping and fees. ConUS only please.

Isoacoustic ISO L8R130 stands in picture are for sale also - $50 plus fees.

    No interest in the stands, just the rack.

    Upon further investigation these are too small for what I could use. GLWS!

    That is such a cool little mini rack! I keep thinking of how I could put it to use! :D

    I’ll measure the other usable dimension and post later. I used with Rega gear.

    The other usable area direction is 14" x 9.5", depending upon which way the rack is facing.

    I was hoping to buy this but it won’t fit my components due to height. Sorry for the delayed response miner.
  • minerminer Posts: 1,203
    Quite OK Skip - just thought I would give a friendly bump.
