I like my Zoethicus units but they are expensive

Swallace i just went into my favorites to get the website address for Mondo and have found that the company has closed shop as of the end of 2000. Its a shame because they made beautiful racks that looked the same as Zoethicus racks. I was going to have them custom make me a rack and amp stand. Wow what a shame.
If you like salamanderdesigns, but want something with a little flash try this. I made a custom salamander stand out of T6061 sheet aluminum, black threaded rod, black jam nuts and black washers. It looks amazing and everyone who has ever seen it makes an offer(it's NOT forsale though heheheh)
Seeing as aluminum is fairly strong and kind of light it works well, I chose to use 1/4" aluminum and have well over a 1000lbs. on it (I am not sure what that is in metric, sorry) it weighs about 280lbs empty and after two years has NO visible wear. Just a suggegstion good luck and choose carefully.
Snook2, is it true the Polycrystal shelves tend to sound neutral but a bit slow in pace and music lacks rhythm? I have not heard them but was put off by a comment from someone that has. I reckon almost all commercially made stands are made of too thin metal and that you need to use something like 3mm thick bright steel. Therefore, I tend to design my own and get a suitable company to make one up.
Check out the Sistrum Platforms from Star Sound (original Audio Points folks). It's a component stand, it's an amp stand or it's one of the newest talked about speaker stands. All I know is it works under anything with amazing results. Form truly follows function as this resonance control device works like a charm. Check them out at www.audiopoints.com and phone them. Their people provide one heck of an education on resonance and sound, plus they will support you with reviews, pricing, etc.
