Adona audio Racks. Anybody use them?
I own a Zero SR4 rack:  https://www.adonacorporation.com/zerosr4.html .  I like the fact that one can position its shelves literally anywhere within its confines.  It does a great job of supporting and isolating my 120 lb. turntable.  And as menti...

Abominations: HT processor to tube amps?
@erik_squires, glad you asked the question.  I too have had the thought of doing likewise -- i.e. using a tube amp for L&R in a H/T setup.  So, I am also interested in hearing any good/bad or otherwise comments or experiences....    
A problem with AC Power you may not have considered.
