The VTI racks are nice looking and very reasonably priced, but I would caution against their use for a high-end setup featuring speakers and/or vinyl. My local dealer has 4 of the short VTI units holding some seriously nice VAC, Esoteric, and Rogue Audio gear, with a turntable on top; this configuration has no lateral rigidity. You push a little against the top shelf, and the whole stack oscillates significantly for quite a while. The worst combination ever is this rack with one of those Clearaudio magnetic-bearing tonearms up top (I hate these arms, btw) -- talk about egregious low-frequency oscillations! We filled the units with lead shot, which did nothing for the lateral rigidity, but at least killed the high-frequency ringing that occurred when tapping the hollow tubes (e.g. with your fingernail) -- a problem with all the hollow metal racks.
I've used Lovan Sovereign racks, which cost more than VTI but has decent rigidity; it's acceptable enough for a good table. The Lovan does display the ringing problem, unless you fill it with something. The shelving boards look nice enough, but aren't very high quality material.
Finding good quality hifi racks that look great and don't cost a fortune is very frustrating! I'd have already upgraded if it wasn't (my Lovans are all nicked up and look a bit ragged; would like something with better quality shelves). My dealer is going to carry Critical Mass Systems; they look stunning but good lord their pricing is ludicrous for a freakin' rack ($3300 per shelf? I don't think so...). I feel the same way about the new VAC Statement gear. Visually a work of art, and I know it'll be likewise sonically, but $50K for a phono stage? Sorry, had to rant a bit :P
