Amp Stands
« on: 29 Mar 2007, 11:52 pm »
I called Klaus last night to check on the status of my order for the Mono Extreme SEs (shipping within 2 weeks, yeh!) and he talked me into going ahead and ordering the Candela.  He told me the waiting time for the Candela is pretty long as he has a pretty long list of orders.  Anyway, I was talking to Klaus about audio furniture (I am still searching for somthing acceptable to both me and the wife) and he recommended I give Arnold at Core Furniture (www.corefurniture.com) a call.  Klaus said he had used the Core Amp Stands at a recent audio show and highly recommended them.

I spoke with Arnold of Core Furniture today and learned he used to be (may still be) a Symphonic Line Dealer.  After decribing my needs Arnold e-mailed me some detailed picutures of his equipment racks and amp stands.  Everything appears to be high quality and priced fairly for Black Walnut.   

I would like to know if most of you use Amp Stands and if you have experience with the Core Furniture equipment racks?

Thanks,

Ken

Klaus had their stands at RMAF. Build quality was very impressive.

I picked up a pair of used Zeothecus amp stands used, but near mint condition.
These things are strong enough to hold a couple hundred pounds without the slightest groan. Before that I had a pair of Targets (think they were anyway), and they were not up to the 75lb of weight.
    I really liked the racks that were on the link you supplied, and may invest in a LP rack. My current speakers are of lace wood as well, but think I'd rather had them in walnut. Also looks like I'd have to have two units as I have close to a thousand LP's right now, and I'm in the market for some good book cases. May just drop this one on my Amish friends over by Milroy.
