Bassocontinou Audio Racks

Has anyone had any experience with these racks? I'm expecting delivery next week, and so far have been very impressed with their service and my perception of their quality. The are made to order and hand made in Italy. I ordered carbon fiber shelves.

I guess im the first, or this is the wrong forum for audio racks. Regardless i thought id share the end result as they arrived today. Craftsmanship is superb, and the only gripe I have is that I spec'd the shelfs out in carbon fiber thinking the whole thing would be covered in that finish, when only the top portion is. Problem with this is that once your equipment is on it the sides of the shelf pretty much make up 50% of what's visible. I have sent the concern into the company and I have yet to hear back.

IMO I should have been made aware of this, and given a choice of what the alternate finish would be. I would have chosen piano black over the wood finish. Ill reserve frustration until I get an office response from them.

For now here it is.

Very nice indeed.
Almost a shame to clutter up that stack of hardware with cables.

Working on the next one...

the cabinet holds all my sources an 90% of the cable. The amp and processor only have XLR cables between them. Besides one thick tech flex of cable taking all the audio from the sources to the SSP there isnt much in the way of exposed cables.

I work hard to hide them all.
