Good looking rack. Adona is a solid choice of no nonsense approach and value for the money.

Canít say my system sounded better after installing it but it has never sounded better.

Very happy with the overall result.
Another congratulations, Craig. Iíve been eyeing Adona racks for quite some time, feeling like they are a great value for the money. I was a little surprised by your observation, though. Kind of hoping thereíd have been a bit more to hear with respect to the change. You can just never tell with these things, I guess.

Itís just too hard to compare the SQ when there was an hour in between. I donít trust my memory to really comment.

It looks great and as I said, my system (still) sounds great. I am pleased with it.

I'm with Craig here,...15+ years owning AV45 series here. After an hour or more of lugging gear and racks around, taking down, putting up, cleaning, etc...I suggest it's pretty much impossible to (truthfully) compare.

Time is the ultimate test as are volume levels in room, inducing vibration into the rack or floor while playing and hearing no impact in soumd quality. They just work...
