So... since I am trying to figure out how to accomplish this task (working with a 24" span between studs) and yet make it as least offensive visually (to remain married!)  I will now complicate it further.  Shocked

I have attached a picture of a Lovan audio rack like I have. (See below.)  Since I have been staring at my wall in my listening room trying to think of a way around my TT wall mount problem, I've been thinking about "wire management" too.  I figure if I'm going to drive myself nuts, I may as well do it "all the way".  ROFLMAO

Do any of you have any ideas that will hide my I/C's, Power Cords, etc... behind an open rack like I have that I can somehow incorporate into my wall mount solution?  Rolling Eyes

Suggestions...???

Thanks!

Make a full height hollow box as your stud widener, 6" deep. Veneer it or faux paint it to match.

Boy oh boy, what a hassle!!  Change your table, as per my comparo and suggestion here (reply #24):

http://www.audionervosa.com/index.php?topic=3426.msg43770#msg43770

Spare your walls the butchering.  Spare your marriage.  Spare yourself the work and aggravation.  But most importantly, get better sound, and a fatter bank account.  And no more worries about footfalls.  For a solid summer my street was completely ripped up for new sewer/water lines.  The house was shaking like it was gonna fall down.  Played my Rock III thru everything...didn't skip a beat.

A Rock III table will run about 500-600 used.  Add a decent Rega or Michell Techno-arm and you are done for around 1000. (I use Kuzma Stogi Ref on mine)

A used Kuzma Stabi "s" / Stogi "s" setup will cost 1000-1400 and will also beat the Linn. 

Not just talking crap here, I have owned all three setups.

I see you are on LI.  I am too.  Come by for a listen.  Feel free to bring your Linn for direct comparo, if you like.

Good luck whatever you do!    Thumbs Up

toobluvr, thanks for mentioning The Rock again, it looks pretty cool.

Does it have a suspension that isolates from vibration? I didn't see that mentioned in the website for the V7, but I didn't study it.

I have a Rock III, several generations older than the 7.

It does not have a sprung suspension.  It has a built in air bladder (just like the Townshend Seismic Sink) and a silicon dampening trough at the cartridge end.  The 7 only has the latter.

So to avoid a wall mount, I would need a Rock 3? Rock 7 would still need a wall mount? Thanks john

No experience with the 7 so I can't comment on it, but wall mount not needed with the 3.

John's table & system sounds very nice!

Be a Linn "separatist", just like Mr. Rollo!

Pete and John

I appreciate the thoughts here, but going to a new (different) turntable is not as simple as you make it sound.  Besides taking into consideration what's involved with finding a reasonably priced used Townshend Rock III, tonearm & cartridge combo. as a replacement.  I'd also have to simultaneously find a buyer for my LP12 to fund that purchase and do it all without the benefit of having a safe and secure Audiogon site to buy & sell from.

Believe me, I can't imagine anyone that wouldn't jump at the chance to have better sound and put some extra cash in their pocket.  I just don't know if I'm willing to wait for that whole process to come full circle right now.

If (?) I can somehow solve my wall mount crisis now, it doesn't mean I can't explore "swapping" turntables at a later date.  I'm sure the Townshend Rock III or any other new/used turntable won't mind being on that wall bracket when (if?) that time ever comes.

I will keep you all posted as the saga continues...

  Bill years ago when designing a interior of an apt we were asked to come up with a solution for racks.
   We used small Roman style columns topped with wood. Attractive and functional. Spiked the bases and looked great.
   If it were me I would consider selling the wall mount. Use a column with a sand box atop. The inside of the columns are hollow. A great place for wire management. If you like you can fill the columns  with sandblasting material. [ Steel ]. Better than sand.
  In the end three or four columns [ spaced apart ] with either individual wood tops or one large top with columns below. Looks great works sonically as the gear is spaced to reduce magnetic field interference, so a nice wood [ Wifey picks out ] and finish the columns any which wat you desire oh my !!
   BTW the footfall issue should go away as well.
