Might be better to get rid of the glass shelve, and replace it with a heavy maple wood replacement. I would even think that a wall mounted target type mount might suit you better. What kind of floor is it all resting on and or where do you believe the vibration problem is coming from? I would say if you have all setting on a bouncy wood floor than go the wall mount way but if the floor is tight than possible gettting rid of the glass might be what is needed.

Timbernation is presently building a sandbox to the specs of Galibier Design for use as an isolation platform. Chris at Timbernation does nice work, and Thom at Galibier is thorough in what he designs and recommends.
I ordered the Timbernation sandbox, but I have not yet received it.
The box costs less than $250.
Presently, I use a Neuance platform with excellent results. They are no longer manufactured, but they can occasionally be found for sale on Audiogon.
The previous suggestions are all good ones, but if you want to consider a "DIY" approach, you could make your own isolation platform. Sorbothane works well for vibration isolation, but the prices for audiophile versions of this material are absurd. Here are 2 links to sorbothane items that work well and are very reasonably priced.
