RE: Damping metal shelves

The best price I've spotted for a 22" wide x 18" deep x 1.5" thick maple board is $39 (see link below). I would recommend placing six Herbie's Audio Lab grungebuster Dots (1" diameter) under each maple board, then position vibration control footers of your choice under each component placed upon the maple boards. Also, it might not be necessary to dampen the bottom of the steel shelves, since a maple board with grungebuster Dots will dampen them quite well.
