Room Comments/Treatments:
My system is built into a room which was previously a garage. It has a poured slab floor at ground level, with the room's current floor about 18" over that. When we moved here in 1985 I reinforced the wooden floor a bit and had the contractor build the wall system you see here. The support for the turntable is a cinderblock column which starts on the poured concrete floor and rises through the wooden floor and wall unit, not touching them. There's no mechanical connection between the turntable and the rest of the room. The equipment rack uses a UniStrut sliding-nut and rail system, with shelf standards as well, to flexibly support both rackmount and non-rack gear. Note also that the speakers are soffited into their own enclosures in the wall unit.

Some of this gear is pretty old now. I bought the NS1000's around 1977, as monitors for my recording studio, and they've been with me ever since.
