    None whatsoever. I do have a concrete floor under the carpet and pad though. I can knock on the marble slabs with my knuckles while records are playing without any issues at all. I have the same slab with spiked cones under both tables. I also replaced the wooden peg legs under the Dual with spiked feet and replaced the stock feet under the Music hall with Mapleshade radiused bottom brass footers. The VTI racks are sitting on the carpet without the spikes at the bottom. I removed them.

    Thanks to all for some really good information and some really nice racks and set ups. Mickey how about some information and close ups of those stringed instruments, they look beautiful from a distance?

    I bought three racks and configured them into two taller ones. They are 24" W x 20" D, but I rotated them 90 degrees to fit. They are very sturdy and versatile. You can configure them anyway you want.

    I've been looking at these racks for awhile, love that there modular and you can get different spacing. Looks like you have the BL series which is the one I want, I prefer MDF boards over glass, only problem is theres no cable management. Wish VTI would add the cable management of the BLG series to this one.

    Thanks guys.

    Really want to set them up but I have several coats to go to get the surface built up the way I want.

    I also managed to knock out 5 cutting boards while I was putting them together. LOL.

    Used black chrome Dayton speaker spikes. The 2 piece kind that have a smaller spike the screws into the larger cone. Since the will be on laminate flooring, I plan on just using the little discs that came with the set to put them on the floor. The third one has divots for it in the tops of the other racks' legs.

    You can buy optional cable management hardware for the BL series. I would have to rotate the racks 90 degrees to install it. The backs of my racks are positioned against the TV. I rototed mine because of space limitations.

    A very good selection of Racks and Stands, both commercial built and self made. I have an old cabinet that I had made several years ago, I need to find something new also.

    That looks like a clone of the Salamander Synergy racks, which I own. Very nicely done.

    Salamander and Timbernation were my inspiration.
    Of course, now I want to build a set of open baffle project speakers using Zebrawood faces and then build the woofer enclosure out of solid maple at the bottom to match the stands lol.

    Those are beautiful speakers. What do I know, at first blush I thought they were Vandersteens of maybe 2ce .I guess the logos on top which Vandys don't have should have clued me in better. Again they are very nice
