Okies gentlemen...  Thoughts on a turntable stand so I can get this Linn off the wall rack???  Paul???  Looks rock solid and thinking some cones on the bottom and possibly iso pads under the plinth...  This thing looks heavy duty and is going up for auction 75 miles away in Columbus...  Road trip or no???

I love it 

Looks like a butchers chopping block 

However I would remove the wheels and then place some Sorbothane under the legs and also under the TT

That's exactly what it is!  All 4 legs are solid and pinned w/inch pegs it looks like.  The top is butcher block so it should be heavy enough.  Now it's all about the dimensions and height also the width between the legs.  Going to go with a butcher block look beneath the table for the integrated.  Hopefully the table top is large enough for the Linn and the Schiit Mani then we're rockin.  Take it all down, stain and finish it.  I'll be a happy boy if it all comes together!  Don't want to spend big bucks on an Adona stand or something similar.  I love it simple!  Thanks for the thoughts Paul.

I have just finished a compilation album as a precursor to playing 4 way street 

 

Most of the great and favourite tracks are on it - any more and it would have been a double album 

 

Artist - Crosby Stills Nash and Young 

Title - Celebration Copy

Nice Mike!  Gotta love "Pillow."   Nice choice on the Jackson Browne LP too!

 

Well the butcher block is torn down and still in the car.  Guy that moved it to the sale site told me it didn't come apart.  Ha!  It went together so it came apart  :)  Together that thing weighs a ton and with a lil bit of work the top of the block should look great.  Complete w/a drawer and pull out cutting board.  Gonna fill the drawer w/$100's!  24x24 so perfect for the Linn and Schitt Mani.  Tomorrow it goes to a friend of mine who owns his own mill and won't have a problem at all cleaning up the top of the block.  The legs are solid maple also.  Then he get's the job of providing me with a piece of maple for the amp to sit on down below.  He's just another old rocker who happens to own a lumber yard.  TWO years looking for this thing and I finally found it.  Adona racks @ $1800???  I'm gonna save $1600 when I'm done and it's gonna look just as nice to me!  Boom!    :)

A good design can be used for many purposes and this one is made to order for a TT stand 

So I offer my congrats

 You should post updates on the individual stages of the transformation

Thanks for that.  I think it's gonna work just fine.  Now I'm truly debating taking the top down by sanding.  Perhaps a good cleaning is in order.  Have to take a better look and decide.  I really don't want it perfect.  A used look just gives it character.  It will need a good cleaning though.  Researching several ways to do that.  Have to eyeball and thunk a bit more now that I have it.  Who knows!  lol

Anything that works is better than nothing! And if it works well, bonus!

I have tried putting together a similar system for streaming 

In the end a Bluesound Node won the day

Found one I haven't played in ages... and I had forgotten how cool the beginning of Side One was

This tour was the one that they were close enough and I was old enough to get there, my first visit to the Dean Dome.

I may be totally out to lunch on this cause I know NOTHING about streaming or puter sounds but they say these are great.

Sorbothane is what I recommend 

You can encase a raw egg in Sorbothane and won’t break after smashing it 

 

Neoprene ( As in the link )  is something totally different and works great under machinery
