Any racks that use coasters/ wheels ?

I know salamander does racks with coasters but are there any others?

Never understood why people don't like coasters for the racks. It's impossible to move a rack after being populated with components without major effort. Not sure the isolation value is all that meaningful, ie. Not using coasters. Unless you got a turntable



Sound Anchor racks and stands are outstanding and all have threaded openings on the bottom that could accommodate coasters such as these or these.

It is about sound quality. If you want the highest sound quality out of your system then vibration control is of paramount importance. Coasters or other convience devices compromise sound quality. So folks interested in sound quality would not consider them.  

Once upon a time I used pointy metal feet galore, but for the past few years the only place I've had pointy metal feet is under my turntable. Whether or not I'm taking a sound quality hit with the current regime I just don't know. I just don't care very much, either, as my stereo has never sounded so good since I had a special room built for it.

I believe you can get butcher block racks with threaded inserts and then find rollers or easy glide feet.

"Never understood why people don’t like coasters for the racks."
Simple. Rollers do not stop vibration.

"Not sure the isolation value is all that meaningful," I am 100% sure that isolation is meaningful even if not using a tt.

Another option is Herbie's Audio Lab Threaded Stud Gliders, i believe they work for racks as well.

I think the vibration rationale for improved sound when using coasters is laughable The only people saying they hear a difference are those marketing the product.

Yes you need to isolate a turntable obviously. components come with special feet that offer isolation as they should.

And amplifiers certainly don't need isolation as they are built like a tank and quite heavy. 

Maybe if you live on top of the subway platform or a raging Street prone with lots of noise but then why bother if this happens.

I added large rubber wheels my TV rack. My audio system solid steel vertical rack being roughly 19 x 19 was too unstable. I recently replaced it with a solid maple table top 5 x 2 x 2", it rests on 2 @ 20 x 20 end tables under each is a large harbor freight dolley. The improvement in all 3 dimensions, as well as bass, puts a huge smile on my face every time I play a CD


so the fact that it's on coaster wheels doesn't impair sound quality. Mobility is extremely important for this heavy equipment.

Common sense tells me that rubber wheels are important to avoid vibrations reaching the floor and vice versa.  

I think all this isolation crazed people need to focus on common sense approaches.  Spending thousands and thousands on these crazy racks it's kind of bizarre


Adona racks can be had with threaded inserts suitable for heavy duty casters, the likes of which are available from McMaster Carr and other similar places. 

Out of sheer practicality, I decided to buy dollies to place under my Klipsch Lascalas. At 175 lbs. each moving them conveniently was impossible. However, the sizes of dollies were less than ideal and seeing how simple they were, I decided to build my own. It all worked out great. I placed 8 isolation pads between the dollies and the bottom of speaker. They are virtually unseen and now I can shift the angle and position of speakers with one finger. But this is where it gets interesting. The enhanced clarity of both mids and treble was shocking. Even so. my situation is unusual due to my floor being so unstable. Did the same with component rack with less improvements but still noticeable in upper frequencies. Very much worth the effort.   

Clearly racks are not designed for usability by most people. Once you put them someplace they pretty much have to stay there. Mobility is lost.

Why don't rack manufacturers do a better job here.

I wanna stack two Mono blocks but there is no rack that is sold with coasters. The rack is too small, etc. A wonderful market opportunity that no one takes an interest in.

To the OP, why start a post if you've already made up your mind and are not interested in other peoples' experience and opinions?  Just curious.

+ 3 on Herbie gliders. I am using the ones which accept spike points.


@emergingsoul  No opinion about coasters, but I have read monoblocks are best utilized close to each speaker. Supposed to improve the sound quality using short speaker cables and long interconnects.

Not true. Take a look at my very first post responding to your question. Sound Anchors makes wonderful, sturdy, sand-filled racks in whatever configuration you need, and they specifically offer two types of coasters that screw into the threaded inserts at the bottom of the racks. Many audio enthusiasts have used their racks to support amplifiers and other audio equipment for years. What more do you want?

You’ve now got 4 recommendations for Herbie’s Gliders, but I’ve got a feeling they’re just hitting a brick wall.  Good luck.
