A bit of off-topic then: Since I cannot afford, nor place two Harmonihyllan at the moment and I know that the Quadraspire Sunoko Vent wall shelf isn't the best on the market, I decided to look into what I can do to improve it at a low cost.
A friend and I tested about 10 different boards in a self-built metal frame with spikes, which were used as a support for his Solos. The boards were made from different materials and had different thicknesses. The differences were surprisingly big and most were really bad. Then we tried the shelf from the Audiotech wall shelf and that was really good.
Well, you can't buy those anymore (I needed 6 and my friend 4), so we started thinking and came upon airplane grade plywood. There's at least one very good manufacturer of audio tables, that uses a very similar shelf.
So we found a shop that sells them in various sizes and thicknesses. I use 8 mm with 16 layers of birch, they are extremely stable, yet light. Cost is about € 32,- per 50 x 50 cm shelf. I cut them to 50 x 40 cm (you have to use a very good electrical saw). So I tried one first under the LP12 and the timing was a lot better and everything just came together. Then I tried it under the ADSM and the same thing happened there. I put Oehlbach Mini Spikes (cones 11 mm) in each corner between the Quadraspire and the new shelves. Do not put them in the middle of each side, that's a lot worse.
Thank you Tendaberry, excellent info for improve ...
P.S. Yes a bit of off-topic, and it will be good to be moved to ...

Thats interesting info about the shelf material. You know that you can buy Harmonishelf system without the very expensive shelfs. Then you can make your own shelfs and experiment with different materials. I did that with very good results. From the prize list at Tonläget. "Harmonihylla - kit (exkl alla trähyllplan) Pris per hyllplan: 2900Skr" (about 290€/shelf). His prize list very complicated so I think you have mail him to get quote.

Highly recommend this video of A Winged Victory for the Sullen followed by Nils Frahm at the Royal Albert Hall Proms.

This lockdown is expensive! When I thought I was going to be without my LP12 for a long time, I bought quite a few new CDs. The standout has been the Schumann Quartett's trilogy of albums on Berlin Classics: Landscapes, Intermezzo, and Chiaroscuro. Now the LP12 is back sooner than I'd hoped, I've bought a lot of new vinyl as well! Treated myself to several Eterna AAA reissues, but today's package was Charles Lloyd/Dreamweaver (nostalgia rules!) and E.S.T. live in Gothenburg. Even though I've got several E.S.T. albums, this is a real standout. Eagerly awaiting the new Lucinda Williams album...

Dipping a toe in the court of the Crimson King. Was rejected by the rest of the family before the end of the first track, but it's caught my attention so started listening again thru headphones...
