Sure could use a run down/update on SO's system.  Looks great, whatever it is.

I'm just a little concerned where his magnificent Sansui receiver is.. :confused_face_2:

WOW thats an incredible spread.

 

Curious, why all the vibration isolation under the solid state components and not the turntable or tubes?

Thanks. I like my TT - Music Hall MMF-7.1

I'll be needing to upgrade the cart late spring.

Not a DAC but the Apogee Big Ben Master Clock. A digital Swiss knife, if you would. :D

Only the Master Clock is solid state... but it's a clock. The preamp middle left is a tube preamp. My Mapleshade Iso tweaks are leftover from a previous system - all of those components are not on display in the above pix which include 6 pound brass footers. 

 

Shindo Laboratory voiced their gears to be placed directly onto shelves with no iso tweaks. The current shelf is interim only until I can afford a tuned Box Furniture rack. I just moved and experimenting with the new environment - the new room has a different vibe, so trust and verify I say! Lastly, the current rack lacks vertical height clearance in the middle shelf needed for the proper tweaks.

On the TT, if you look at it more closely in the pix below, you'll notice the TT is isolated by design - a base sandwich with sorbothane filling the middle:
