    Re: Rix Rax Meets Diapason

    you can barely see the plinth sitting below the rack, on which I have sitting a black computer server (not optimal). I think it's intended for turntable tools and such - it just sits directly on the floor.

    I did a google search for Rix Rax and found several images online, etc., if those are of any help.

    The last email I have for Rick was rickcox2010@gmail.com.

    Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

    Hounddog- Racks look great. My rix rax has straight tubes on corners and not the angled ones. Other than the one I bought, I have never seen these before. They are built very sturdy which is what I needed for my 72 lb. receiver! I see there have been some for sale in Canada for a huge price. Yes, I think you are correct about the plinths. My husband has insisted on putting my speakers on them but doesn't that change the sound? I thought speakers were supposed to be elevated off the floor. Are the plinths expensive too? The guy threw the two of them in with the rack saying he did not know what they were. I also think I need better speakers as mine are Sansui sp-1700. I have four but only using two for now. I am waiting on the little discs to ship that go under the cones. Thanks for any info as I have just recently spent the money to fix my receiver.

    Speakers should not be on the plinth, for all kinds of reasons, but they need to be properly separated from the floor. The plinth is really just a fancy shelf to sit on the floor - it is meant for various sundry, but not meant for speakers. Try sitting the speakers on the floor using their existing spikes/feet and then start exploring other options to isolate them from the floor - they'll pick up vibrations from the floor and vice versa, none of which is a good thing.

    As to better speakers, etc, et al, this is the place to learn all of that stuff. Literally, the sky (or the ozone layer) is the limit. If you keep on getting good deals like you got on the rack though, you'll do well. Somehow, I never get those.

    Thanks for the info. I will try to convince my husband to take the speakers off the plinths. My speakers are original and in a wooden housing with no feet and no spikes. I will look into some kind of speaker stands for them. Thanks for the help!

    Re: Rix Rax Meets Diapason

    Maybe someone can help me. I have a Rix Rax system shelf and I need the little discs that go under the cones. These are 18mm x 2mm stainless, I can only seem to find the 1" size. Anyone have any ideas or work arounds?

    Herbie’s should have something to fix that up. Just google herbie’s audio.

    Look on Ebay and other sources for spike protectors. 3/4 inch should be the closest match.
