NDX also means ND anything or any streamer type unit, its going to happen anyway (sometime) so I would like to make it to a design that works & avoid stuff that does/might degrade SQ. My questions to the forum are for those that have experience of adding a support shelf (bought or DIY) (a) Does a support under a streamer actually make a sonic difference (honesty please) (b) whats the best shelf material; glass, slate, plastic, wood (c) ditto support types, spikes, inverted dome nuts, washer/balls, sorbothane, hard rubber, fixed firmly to the shelf or not.
Yes - it does. I've asked my local supplier to make some glass shelves, in toughened black glass - size matches the Fraim glass shelves.
Each shelf sits on 3 VibraPods, providing the necessary isolation. Note: a VibraPod under the front-right corner is firmer (transformer sits here). VibraPods are relatively inexpensive (around EUR 45 for a pack of 4).
The differences are not subtle at all - it is probably the best and the most obvious upgrade I have ever heard.
I will add a photo in a second (if I can find it).
Wow, more than any of the electronic items?
Given that and a claim made on the current 'ethernet switch' thread, and some claims made about cables, maybe all we all need is the most basic of electronics, and focus only on the connections and supports!
