My one gripe is that the racks may start level but by the fifth level they are out a bit.

Which can be most infuriating if you're planning to place a turntable on the top shelf!

Exactly, Clive. I have some Christmas cracker sized cards which are used. Now they go under the Fraim cup for the TT! Does this happen with other racks. One theory is that it’s the carpet spikes sinking. 

Sorry I have not got back to you. I’m overseeing workmen in another property at the moment. Also, I’m letting the 252 mature a bit. Do you have any time at the weekend?

I think the key is to not stand on the base level but push it down firmly into the carpet, and make sure it’s level and solid before moving to the next shelve, I noticed whilst building the rack that this could be a potential problem.

In fact this issue was mentioned somewhere back in this thread and this was the advice given.

In my case the Fraims are in Naim Chips onto a solid oak floor, so there's no sinking into anything. I guess it's due to tolerance build up, which, over a number of shelves, can lead to difficulties.

Good foundations is key to everything we build.

I’ve had to get planning permission before starting to build the racks and building regulations, I’m just waiting to get mine signed off.....

I guess it helps that SWMBO actually likes the design!

SWMBO is very happy with my choices, it helps having my own listening room of course

First thoughts one I think it it looks great, two an overall improvement in audio quality but the kit is warming up after been switched off for a couple of hours so a final verdict in a few days.
