I want to replace an oak cabinet that I am using to house my components with open shelving of some kind. I've been looking at items like this VTI BLG 503. They say the poles can be filled with sand or metal filings to improve the sonic qualities.
There are also various wooden component shelves available; some made of MDF and some of hardwoods like oak. What material is best for component shelving?
If anyone has experience with these VTI shelves, I'd like to hear about it. Can you recommend other products?
Finally, I also need a TT shelf that I can mount to the wall. It only needs to be able to support a Rega P5, which isn't very heavy. Recommendations?
