Audio Suspension ASU-100 Turntable Wall Mount
Standard Overall Shelf Dimensions : 550mm W X 450mm D 20mm Thickness Special sizes available to order
With many manufacturers recently seeing increased sales of their turntables and record sales of both new and used vinyl showing healthy increases, the turntable is as popular as ever.
However turntables can be tricky to set up and get the best sound from. One of the key elements to getting the best from your analogue equipment is to ensure it is on a sturdy base, protected from unwanted resonances, knocks and bangs. One of the best ways to do this is to use a wall mount, which will ensure it is isolated from all those clomping feet and wobbly floor boards.
Many wall mounts can be ugly looking bits of metal and glass which don’t show your pride and joy to its best. Audio Suspension believe a wall mount should be both functional and beautiful, which is why they designed the ASU-100 wall mount.
We've seen quite few offerings and elaboration on this simple idea, but non so far looks so elegant yet so transparent. Polished chrome and acrylic looks upscale and fits both classical and contemporary surroundings. It just feels and looks right.
This unique wall mount is made of 20mm clear acrylic, which has great properties for audio equipment as it is extremely efficient at damping unwanted resonance and adding none of the ringing tone that glass can incur. The shelf is attached to the wall with 2 polished chrome shelf supports with silicone rubber to ensure damping at the wall. At the front 1.5mm steel wire cables secured by polished chrome pos-i-lock supports ensures the shelf is stable, level and able to hold large weights while creating a beautiful, contemporary look.
There are cut outs on each side of the rear of the acrylic shelf for easy cable management
Of course you don’t have to use it for your turntable, it can be used to support all sorts of hi-fi equipment such as cd players and amplifiers.

"Turntables in particular gained from this sturdy, low vibration base, with greater dynamics and superior rhythms. Given the amount of quality engineering that has clearly gone into the design of this shelf, I consider it to represent excellent value for money and it will provide a solid base for turntables and other equipment."
