They look techy-tweaky so not surprising.
Hard to beat Sound Anchor for performance at a reasonable price.
Not high tech but simply as solid as it gets.
I have dressed mine up a bit with wood shelves (pic on system page).
Use whatever footers you want on the rack and/or the supported equipment.
MC would probably decouple by putting the whole rack on Townshend pods or podiums.
Mine is on Herbies Giant Fat Gliders but I have thought about using some stiff springs.
To combine two of the above postings/recommendations:
The Core Audio racks are constructed of beautiful Baltic Birch ply for their entire structure; I believe Core also offer individual BB shelves (if they don’t, others do. Alternatively, you may buy a sheet of BB and have it cut into shelf-size pieces.). One interesting idea is to use BB shelves installed into a Sound Anchor stand, imo opinion the best metal stands on the market.
That's the racks I have, @stereo5---three of the original Italian-made Solid Steel 4-shelf Model 44. The rack itself is acceptable (the four corner pillars hollow, sand/lead shot fillable), but the shelves are just 3/4" formica-covered MDF---ugh. I was about to make some Baltic Birch/Slate shelves (with a sheet of ASC Wall Damp constrained-layer damping material between the BB and Slate) when the Pandemic closed everything down. My project for later this year.
I have been pretty pleased with my Solid-Tech rack. I have a four-shelf Hybrid rack with separate corner posts for each shelf - filled with sand. The rack feels very solid to me and looks sharp.
I just ordered a couple more shelves and corner posts to reconfigure as a double-wide three shelf rack since I have more equipment I need to set up.
I considered some of the solid wood racks such as Timbernation, but I wanted a rack that can easily be reconfigured and I like the high-tech styling of the solid-tech rack.
