Desk mounted hifi amp? Answered
So I've just moved back from uni, and have encountered a couple of relocation problems - my beloved turntable won't fit on my shelves. So I'm planning on keeping it on my desk, but there's another problem, the amp that goes with it (Technics SUZ11) is shallower than the turntable, so if I stack them, the turntable is very prone to skipping from vibrations in the table (even if I just move my laptop a bit).
So what I was thinking, was put the turntable on the desk, mount the amp underneath, have a joyously neat workspace? :)
I was looking at this instructable:. There are vents on the top and bottom of the amp, so airflow shouldn't be a problem, but I am worried about the weight (and ripping the mounting screws out of the table). I'd probably be sticking it on a cheap IKEA desk, which is made like this:
Table top: Height 4cm
Top: Fibreboard, Acrylic paint
Frame: Particleboard, ABS plastic
Filling material: Paper
Is it likely that I would encounter any problems? Or are there any other suggestions on how to do this? I've seen some CPU racks which hold the unit in place with heavy duty straps, but these all seem inordinately expensive...
