Audio Rack Opinions

After a fair amount of research, I have landed on 3 candidates for upgrading my audio rack:

  1. Symposium Acoustics Foundation Ultra 
  2. Core Audio Plykraft 4L
  3. Butcher Block Audio Rigid Rack with 4 shelves 

This will be used with the following system:

Palmer 2.5i Turntable

  • LFD NCSE Mk3 amplifier
  • Sutherland Little Loco phono stage
  • Oppo UDP 203 CD player
  • Palmer turntable power supply
  • This sits on hardwood floors to the left of my Harbeth speakers which are Tontrager stands

I am not in the market for a $10k plus rack, but would love to hear opinions on the above racks or any other suggestions  


Thanks in advance

For that system with those options, doesn't really matter.  One thing you didn't mention is whether your "hardwood floor" is hardwood over concrete, or a suspended flooring system; ground floor or above?  This may have more impact on your decision than the cosmetics or recommendations from the inmates here.

I will be posting a 4 shelf Sistrum rack for sale very soon I have more than 1. Tom

I previously posted my choice, Timber Nation, but my system photo was not public. Public now..

I know that I should have had them apply a black stain, but I just couldn't cover up the nice grain.
