I had a Michael Green clamp rack that I used for nine years both as a clamp rack and as a regular rack. It looks a lot like yours, but the shelves were 1" thick and the steel rods were 3/4" thick.
I now have a Sistrum SP-6 from Star Sound Technologies. It made a big difference for the better sonically. To me it was well worth the $1,000.00 price difference from the Michael Green clamp stand.
What difference do my budget and number of componants make in your experience with better racks? Any good rack is going to conform to my needs anyway.
Bgrazman the stillpoints rack is not designed to be used that way. I guess any fool could throw a shelf on the top, but they have specific ideas that went into the design of the rack that are not just thrown together junk.
The reason I asked about budget and number of components is that I had a custom suspension rack made by a company I ran accross at CES. It is excellent but was expensive. The price depended on how large I wanted it. A good rack may conform to your needs if it accepts the required number of pieces. In any case I would recommend a suspension rack. If you would like info on my rack please E mail me.
Fair enough, but fool seems a little harsh-- one can certainly think about how to couple (or decouple) a shelf that meets ones needs to the rack below.
If you don't care for my advice that's ok too. You asked for opinions & I gave mine.
(In my opinion, there are a lot of "know nothing" designers out there and I couldn't care less about their design ideas if they don't make sense--I prefer to put my money elsewhere in my system).
