ID:	51258 today I received my second custom rack from Herzan made of welded 2" steel box tube. With 4 racks in play, I can now organize the system better. I should have it done by tomorrow night.

      damped steel plate. This rack weighs 350lb. An appliance mover dolly was used to get it up into the house and down the stairs into the cave. Solo effort.

          Like one of the mythical labors of Hercules! Bet you're happy to have that job complete. 350 - lb. Herzan rack moved by one person? What kind of machine did you use to move it? Very impressive work. By the way, what are the dimensions of your listening space? Seeing this snug-but-awesome rig, I'm feeling better now about the close quarters in my room, sitting up sort of close --- at least it feels a bit close --- to my humble Vandersteen 5A's.

            I don't know the dimensions off the top of my head. As you can see, I'm set up on the long wall for listening. The speakers are 8ft spread woofer center to center, I sit back 10 ' with about 3' left to the wall behind me.

          Christian I don't see how you did that solo! Looks like you probably took your share of IBEBROKEN.

            Using an appliance mover I eased it up the 4 stairs into my house then down an L-shaped stair case into the basement. The first step into the basement staircase was the scariest. Once in the room (carpeted) the leveling feet act as sliders. I'm 6'7" 230lb so I suppose that helped.

              I just noticed the Stillpoints (5s?) under the Clearaudio. How do those work for you under the table? I've tried 'em everwhere but my TT, which would require specialized adapters.

              The Ultra 5's work very well with that table.

              I bet you enjoy the access. Cable management can be quite the chore without it.

            Still trying to "see" how you did the 350-lb heavy work. What sort of "appliance mover" did you use?

              The total weight with ship crate was 350lbs. My bad. I estimate 250lbs for the stand. I used this same dolly for my Wilson bass cabinets which weigh in at 350lbs. Two people required for those. I'm not that strong.

                Chris, this is what you need to go up or down stairs, awesome device for stair climbing.
                i bought one and it is an invaluable tool.

                Also, never seen so much gear in one room, wow.

                    We should all be fortunate enough to live your "disarray"- Congratulations on a very impressive system .... is there any active element to your new stand or is a passive brute force device from Herzan?

                    Thanks.

                      ^^^^Both stands were designed for use with the TS-140 active isolation table. I designed the foot print to be the same as the TS-140. The newer taller stand will remain as an all passive device for my 2nd string turntable. I had problems with the TS-140 not functioning properly on my prior stands that had little lateral rigidity. Rigidity is required for the actuators to actually push off the stand when counteracting incoming vibration. If there is not enough rigidity, the TS-140 can go into a feedback state where you can hear the actuators making a periodic knocking sound. Originally I thought the unit was broken. The final test was to put the device on the floor. No feedback loop hence I determined it to be my prior stand. These stands made to order are an unbelievable bargain....less than $2000.00 shipped depending on build size, options.
