I use a Target equipment rack because, reading audiophile magazines, I should use something of that kind to keep everything stable and isolated from vibration etc. When you look at some of the very expensive installs featured in HCC (and other magazines) you hardly EVER see an equipment rack or "named" A/V cabinet. All of the equipment is normally standing on (very nice looking) normal or custom made furniture and quite often the DVD player is stacked on top of the amp! Sometimes the featured cabinet clearances are so small I wonder how the equipment doesn't melt. It wouldn't be so bad if a few isolation platforms could be seen, or even a bit of granite, but.......nothing! Also there never seems to be much mention of how the power is suppled to the equipment (I have read a few reviews where it has been mentioned, but not many). No mention of the sort of stuff that is incorporated into a lot of "budget" systems (Russ Andrews' Silencers, Powerkords etc.). Has anybody else noticed this? Are we being duped into buying specialist A/V racks/cabinets etc.? If a £20k+ system doesn't require this sort of equipment then am I wasting my time buying it?
