Dave says "Need be I will throw myself under the falling slab to save my electronics.".. . . hehehehe.... back when I was getting into the home theater thing, I had my rears held to the ceiling by a spring tension curtain rod. You know, while I was tweaking. I would have made a decision sooner, had I known that my clumsy brother would come over, fall backwards in his chair, into the tension rod. Well, a few stiches later, we decided speakers should stay within 2 feet of the floor :) Anyway, regarding the support of Rega's, the English have a little different interpretation of physics than the Americans... surprise... Linn and Rega tend to recommend LIGHT but RIGID structures for their tables. I suppose the Rega design itself suggests that train of thought. Not familiar with the Vantage Point, but Linn recommends a fully welded but light structure, not filled, but painted thickly. For what ever that's worth.
