    1. Obviously there are no malign vibrations degrading the sound quality in music room one. No PS Audio anti-vibration platforms with integrated balun filter are seen. And even the VPI turntable isn’t protected by a separate wall-shelf or a pneumatic or magnetic platform/footers. Having myself no long-term experience with dipole loudspeakers maybe these speakers do no harm? πŸ˜‰

      1. Both my wife and I were talking about this, after watching Paul’s video.
        A hard lessen learned by me, is, there is no such thing as a perfick rack.
        But I wouldn’t stack my components on top of each other either.
        Because, not only do you have to dampen them against vibrations, you have to make consideration’s for ventilation.
        A class A amp would especially need a lot of ventilation, because rather you’re playing it at a high volume or not, the amp will still make a good deal of heat.
        Turntables are in deed the hardest things to damp against vibrations.
        And so, you will need a study case with a good deal of spacing, and a good deal of damping.
        So tite, that not even a baby would be able to move it.
