    Re: Atacama or Quadraspire bamboo racks?

    I need shelves for five items plus space for the Sbooster and Rothwell Rialto.
    I don't want the rack to be too low or high: Too low where I have to bend to place records on the turntable and too high where the turntable is above the windowsill.
    At the moment I need shelves for six items but one of those items is a Sony MDS-JB920 minidisc player/recorder which I have not used in years, so really I'm only looking at five.
    I will eventually get rid of the cd player so that will be another shelf not needed.
    At the moment I have two 4 shelf Soundstyle hifi racks.
    I'm thinking of doing the same, but I'm also thinking of getting the AV rack (Grand Stand XL) instead. Something to think about.
    I like the look of this design from Hifiracks.co.uk:

    Bamboo is very strong. I have never ‘heard’ it. Naturally sourced so I think it will be very similar to wood with its presentation.

    Re: Atacama or Quadraspire bamboo racks?

    I'm not sure what to do.

    I've been in contact with a lady from Hifiracks via email (I don't know how knowledgeable she is about the finer details) and from what I can make out, they don't test their racks and if they don't test their racks how do they know their racks do the job of getting rid of vibrations?
    I know Whathifi? have good reviews but I don't really rate them.

    I'm most probably thinking too much into it, but I want to know that a rack is doing what it is meant to be doing, especially when spending over £800!

    I'm now thinking of getting the Quadraspire SVT with bamboo shelves even though it's more expensive.
    From what I've read, they test their racks.

    I also like the look of the Atacama Eris Eco 5.0 but not sure how good they are.

    I'm going to have think about it especially as I was put off of by the look of the SVT. I've read that pictures don't do them justice.

    Re: Atacama or Quadraspire bamboo racks?

    Found out Hifiracks do test their racks so that's good news.
    I am now thinking about the Quadraspire SVT.
