Vitsoe as support

Hi!

I am in the process of building new listening room. For this project I am considering the Vitsoe 606 shelving system. As it is wall mounted, light and rigid (I think) it does seem on paper to be suitable for supporting a stereo system. Does anyone here have experience in using this system to support HiFi? Specifically an LP12, Roksan TMS and assorted Naim and other black boxes. I am mostly using Mana presently.

Best regards

Hans

Can’t help with using Vitsoe for equipment…but have recently fitted Vitsoe for cd storage and in another room , for books etc.
The quality of the product is exceptional, even the packaging! The staff at Vitsoe HQ are also v helpful.
Dieter Rams obviously intended the shelving to be used for his / Braun equipment ( of a different era though !)
I don’t see why with the use of additional isolation platforms this would not work …good luck.

Yes – I have practical experience here. In my previous home, following a top-to-bottom renovation and after consultation with the Vitsoe design office in London, I decided to house my Naim set on a Vitsoe system. It looked very neat and I had no concerns RE stability even for the heavy boxes (incl 300/300PS and 555PS). It obviously won’t confer the benefits of a bespoke rack such as Fraim (which I have now, in my new home) but it was a super solution for that space. Can send you photo if you can find a way to send me your email address. As an aside, I first saw Naim on Vitsoe in a dealer in London: Robert Taussig. Lovely showroom with a keen sense of design in case you are ever able to visit.

Let us know how you get on. It looks as the ideal weapon to counter my wifes Ikea reflex.

Sorry, can’t help with the hi-fi question, but the quality of the Vitsoe system is superb. As a result I doubt there would be an issue. My only question may be the turntable, hence personally I might keep a Mana table around for LP12. There’s a BBC documentary about Dieter Rams. His hifi was on 606. Sadly he wasn’t using the Braun LE1 electrostatics.
