How much are you willing to spend? Sound Anchors makes a very solid 3 shelf stand and the top one which is set up to accomodate turntables works very well and looks great.

The simple Target or Rega turntable shelf that is wall mounted is better than many of the exotic floor mounted stands as the vibration path from speakers and footfalls is drastically minimized. They also have less mass than the exotics so tend to release, not store, energy when excited. They are also quite cost effective.
Here are some requirements for consideration: I don't want to use a wall shelf, as the only location for mounting would be a corner too close to the speaker (possible standing wave feedback). Thanks anyway, Viridian! I am using an SME 10 turntable. I don't want to use a regular stand as a tube amp will have to fit under it. Thanks though, Franklapdog!
You didn't tell us what kind of turntable it is. The type of suspension will have a large effect on the recommendation if a floor stand is the only option. For suspended tables I like the Sound Organization stand. It may or may not fit your tube amp, again, the model of the tube amp would be helpful. And this stand is rather low so that may be an issue. More info is called for.
Hi Fatparrot. I am having a TT stand build especially for me to hold my VPI Aries TT. It is being custom constructed by a person very much into room acoustics and stablization systems.....and the best part is he is resonable. E-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I can hook you up with him. Can't promise too much since he is just starting out and works on a tight budget and works in NJ.
