back to shelves and platforms

Here is the first shelf. Home Depot 1/4 inch steel brackets lag bolted to

studs behind drywall. Two layers of 1/2 inch birch plywood with a 2 inch layer

of Y20 dense foam. Under the Thorens TD160 MK 1 is a Brite Star Iso-Rock platform. 

This shelf eliminated the foot fall issues I was having, allowing the Thorens to play

undisturbed by vibes that previously, were constantly working it's suspension.  Sonic improvements were

apparent and substantial.
