RE: TT Shelf

How about 'for the man who has everything'.  Mount the TT shelf on a floating gimble, screw the gimble mount to the wall, connect the gimble to a gyroscope . . . perfection, cost an arm and a leg, someone could offer damping for the set up, no spirit level required!!!  A money spinner or what . . . ? woohoo!

Well CJ you do have a history of this kind of engineering stuff, particularly your work with speaker stands.  So off you go then. See you on Dragon's Den?  excellent!

 . . . ?  puzzled Well now MF, if I did do it, I would be laughed out of court . . . then everyone would go and copy what I hade done . . . Look at speaker stand design, before the original 'Foundation Classic, Pi and Designers', most stands looked like 'electric cable pylons' without the arms.  After 1985, when Classic took the inovation award, suddenly everything changed . . . 

Nah, I'll let someone else do the donkey work, I'm retired and intend to stay that way!  Quetly working in my shed, inovation for my own satisfaction, now where did I put that soldering iron???  Cool

RE: TT Shelf

well that seems to have took on a life of its own. Thought the Podium was a bit pricey so I've opted for the apollo. All the hifi gear is currently on a dedicated rack but its in the corner next to the radiator. So I'm planning on putting it all on the tv rack & doing away with the cd as I've got the blu-ray. Oh, and I've ordered a nice new comfy chair to help the enjoyment along. :grin:  I do like the look of the Podium racks so maybe thats something for next year. thanks for the comments.
