Love the setup! Just one question - would it be better to have the turntable behind the speakers in the center? Looks like in the current position the turntable might be affected by the sound and corresponding vibrations coming from the speaker?

In the center is where the Table was originally placed (see Avatar) the Rack was much taller to accommodate the TT. There is a Heat Vent directly above that position, and the Rack full of gear was tampering with the Image a bit.

Moving the TT into its new spot allowed me to lower the Center Rack a few shelves and this has really improved the Image.

I built the new Rack using a 8/4" (2" Material) for Top Shelf, on top of which is a 3" Block supporting the Table, and 5/4" Material for the lowers shelves. The total weight of the Rack itself, plus the Butcher Block is well over 80 lbs. The Table and associated gear weighs over 70 lbs., I have 2" Spikes Supporting the Rack on top of a Carpet covered Concrete floor....it's Solid.
