The WS-5 is a rock-solid platform delivering reference-level isolation at an attainable price, weighing in at a massive 13 Kg (28 lbs). Form follows function, the WS-5 supports even the heaviest of turntables. Heavy gauge steel for the perimeter and the massive wall plate are complemented by graceful ouches adding air and life to what might otherwise have been a monolithic design.
An Italian-Made Wall-Shelf
Solidsteel’s WS-5 puts an immediate end to any doubts about the practicality and performance abilities of a turntable wall shelf. Weighing a mighty 13,0 Kg (28 lbs), WS-5 supports even the heftiest ‘tables while providing the reference-caliber isolation crucial to superlative analog performance. Rated to handle up to 60 Kg (130 lbs) with a large shelf (500 x 410 x 19 mm | 19.5″ x 16.25″ x 0.74”), the WS-5 works with almost any ‘table made. Ridiculously sturdy, WS-5 touts a massive (50 mm | 2″) tall by (25 mm | 1″) thick steel outer frame welded to an extremely thick (150 mm | 6″ tall) back plate. Its (25 mm | 1″) square crossbars are taken directly from Solidsteel’s own audio racks. Ditto the proprietary Duraluminum isolation cones. Leveling of the MDF shelf (laminate black finish) may be fine-tuned via the four cone cups using an Allen key (always included). The Italian-made WS-5 can even be mounted on brick and concrete provided you employ the proper connectors. Give your turntable the support it needs with WS-5.
