It's easy to build a DIY HiFi rack if you have tools, here are some links

very cool. thanks.
i have a question though, that might seem a little silly, but i cant for the life of me figure out how a rack for audio equipment can make a difference to the sound quality.
if one is using a turntable or a source that is mechanical in nature, a rack might make a difference (and i can understand why), but what if the audio comes purely from a source that isnt affected by the relatively small vibrations caused by audio. for example, in my case i have my audio coming out of the optical port of my computer, into a DAC and then into a pre/power combo on towards speakers. how would a rack make the sound "better"? what is the theory behind this?
i can however see the need for a good rack, but wouldn't that be for the convenience of keeping the equipment clean, well ventilated and easy access to the rear? i guess even for turntables where vibration and resonance will directly affect the sound. I guess CD's and the like wont suffer from this problem nearly as much, as the rotational inertia would keep it pretty stable.
i dont mean to offend anyone. any info that would help clear my doubts would be much appreciated.
Thats 16mm MDF sheets , I primed and painted in clover blue shade (asian paints).Nice work.
Can you help me with a few answers:
* What is the blue material? Is it available in other colors? What is the thickness?
* The legs bolts, are they one single piece from top to bottom?
The screw rods, are they one rod per leg (3 rods in all) or did you use multiple rods for each leg joined by nuts.The S.S threaded screw rod, nuts, bolts washers need to purchased seperately, and the planks/M.S and rubber washers needs to be shoved in all the way while the nuts need to be screwed in patiently over a few 50mm of threading on average.
Congrats, great effort, it looks cool.
How many days effort it took? From where did you procure the materials and how much did it cost?
gobble.. nice work.. congrats.!!
what is the Length x Breadth of the MDF board ?
btw, i was planning to make the same type but was planning for 10mm or 12mm Glass sheet. What do you suggest ?
