Overview

Our take on the Solidsteel WS-5

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Very Sturdy

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.
