About the Solidsteel WS-5

Wall-mount your turntable for vibration-free playback

If you'd rather have your turntable out in the open than in a cabinet, the Solidsteel WS-5wall shelf is an esthetically pleasing option — and one which isolates your turntable from virtually all sound-muddying vibration.

Wall-mount your turntable for vibration-free playback

If you'd rather have your turntable out in the open than in a cabinet, the Solidsteel WS-5wall shelf is an esthetically pleasing option — and one which isolates your turntable from virtually all sound-muddying vibration.

This sleek, décor-friendly shelf features a heavy-gauge steel frame and a large wall plate to ensure rock-steady stability. The inset shelf is made of 3/4" MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard), a vibration-dampening material. And the shelf itself is isolated from its steel frame by three aluminum cones. These cones ensure that vibrations from the wall aren't transmitted to the shelf.

Okay Depending on what it is mounted too.

If your mounting this product on a wooden frame wall and floor construction you may experience feedback via the turntable due to vibrations when the stereo is played loud. The shelf does not isolate vibrations when the stereo is played loud. The current isolation feet that come with the unit are not adequate. Had to use additional vibrating isolation products to eliminate feedback via the cartridge. (Isolation feet for shelf and turntable) Now all is good. I'm certain this would not have occurred if the walls and floor were masonry instead of wood studs and joists. Buyers be warned.

Pros: Solid build, easy to install.

Cons: Doesn't completely isolate vibrations. Additional isolation between the wall bracket and the wall maybe an improvement or needed.

Very solid and well built shelf. Slight blemish on the wood tray and the company name label on front was crooked but I can overlook both even though it was a cool $500. Maybe they need a little more quality control prior to shipping.

Pros: Solid and proper dimensions.

Cons: Slight Quality control issues with finish.

Solid as it gets!

Crutchfield is the best hands down. I was in the market for a turntable shelf but was unsure on what to choose. I figured if Crutchfield sold this it had to the best. The construction and quality of the Solidsteel WS-5 is the best. I have a large old house with a hardwood tounge and groove floor. Any turntable I had on my component rack vibrated slightly no mater what. Mounting this unit on the wall eliminated that . Bass response ant just the total sound is vastly improved. I used a backing mounted oak board and mounted that to the studs in the wall

Pros: construction, performance, appearance

Cons: absolutely none

I received my rack about a week after ordering. I unpacked it and noticed it's very well made. I didn't receive any instructions but it's very straight forward. There are two pre drilled mounting holes and a third partially drilled hole ( if needed ). I noticed the supplied template was off a bit from the actual rack so I discarded and laid out my hole locations by hand on the wall. Located two studs. At this point I didn't like the supplied hardware and for my application I ran to the hardware store and picked up grade 8 ti screws a type of lag bolt if you will. I also deviated at this point and decided to layout and drill two more holes in line with the originals butat the bottom of the mounting plate. Attached it to the wall making sure everything was level and it is very secure. I took the extra steps on mounting as I'm sitting a Linn LP12 on it most people will not need to alter the mounting but wanted to explain how easy it is if needed. End result. Looks great and preforms outstanding! My sondek came alive. Sounds much clearer. More separation and bass. I recommend this rack to anyone as Linn tables can be a bit tricky to set up correctly.

Pros: Construction! Isolation!

Cons: Could add different hardware for different needs. Not a big deal

This is a great product, well made, very solid and easy to install. I'm using it for my turntable to isolate it from the rest of my system. Will probably get another soon!

Pros: Excellent quality, looks great and easy to install.

Product Research

Features

Solidsteel Philosophy: Solidsteel's philosophy is that there should be no compromise in the build quality or benefits to sonic performance, and that the products should reflect the Italian "style" of design with the use of excellent materials, clean lines, well-considered utilization of space, and attention to detail.

Wall-Mount Shelf: The Solidsteel WS-5 is a wall-mount shelf for your turntable.

Steel & MDF Construction: The wall-mount frame is made of heavy-gauge steel, while the shelf is made from 3/4" MDF (medium density fiberboard). The benefits of MDF include a much higher damping factor and superior rigidity over time.

Isolation Cones: To minimize resonances, the wall-mount turntable shelf is supported on - and therefore isolated from - the frame by three aluminum cones which are positioned to precisely discharge unwanted energies into the chassis and then, by design, into the ground.

Compatibility: Your turntable should measure less than 19.75" (w) x 16.125", and weigh no more than 100 lbs.

Mounting: The Solidsteel WS-5 wall-mount turntable shelf is designed to mounted on 16" studs. Mounting screws included.

Dimensions & Weight: The Solidsteel WS-5 wall-mount turntable shelf measures 21.75 (w) x 6.375" (h) x 18.5" (d), and weighs in at 28 lbs.
