Just got a new set-up, nothing super special but a huge upgrade from where we were at. 
U-Turn Orbit Custom
Ortofon 2M Red
Marantz PM5005
Wharfedale Diamond 10.2


The TT on the same surface as the loudspeakers... Do you have anything to isolate the vibrations on the TT?

Can anyone suggest a vinyl shelving unit that is 42-44 inches long and holds two shelves of records and I can put my turn table, amp, preamp, and digital streamer on?  I've been using one from walmart for the last 4 years, but with the addition of bigger amp and streamer, they are hanging like an inch off the top.

I had a make shift set up a few years ago and then my turn-table kicked the bucket and I moved, so I got rid of everything except my small vinyl collection. A couple of weeks ago, I found a turntable, receiver, equalizer and a couple speakers for cheap, so I have a set up again! Eventually I'll start upgrading, but it'll do for now.


Ion USB turntable
Yamaha receiver

Pyramid Equalizer
