Interest Check: Apos x MattyBlue Wall-mounted Audio Rack

Meet the MattyBlue Wall-mounted Audio Rack

Yo! This is Tom at Apos. We’re creating a venue where designers, manufacturers, and community members can interact. With that in mind, we’re excited to introduce the first of many projects we have planned—a hand-crafted wall-mounted audio rack specifically designed for turntables and tube amps.

It’s created by Matt Jabloner (aka MattyBlue), an audiophile and designer based in Washington state who’s created loads of products for places like Bottlehead. 

We have plans to launch a Group Buy for this product, but before we get too ahead of ourselves, we want to know what you think. Below you’ll find some product info and a poll for you to leave us your feedback.

Tell Me About this Audio Rack

It’s a Bauhaus-inspired, heavy-duty, three-shelf audio gear rack that mounts on your wall. Each corner of the top and bottom shelf is independently adjustable, so you can get it dead level—a must for those of us with turntables. And because we know vibration is the enemy of good sound, the top and bottom shelf has a double-layer with silicone sandwiched in between. The top layer is insulated from the rest of the rack to keep vibrations at bay. The middle shelf is intended for vinyl. Built by hand by an audiophile for audiophiles, this rack is perfect for turntables and tube amps alike.

Note: The wood used in the prototype that’s pictured is subject to change. 

Why Wall-mounted?

Floors are bouncy. Every footstep sends shivers through your gear. Walls, on the other hand—especially solid exterior ones—are way more stable. By mounting your gear on the wall, you’re giving vibration a run for its money. Add the double-layer silicone-damped shelves into the mix, and you’ve got yourself a setup that’s as solid as a rock.

Who made it?

Matt Jabloner aka MattyBlue was once an environmental engineer who now channels his expertise into crafting audio equipment. Hailing from Washington state, he’s created numerous enthusiast audiophile products like the Bottlehead Solitary Confinement Isolation Platform, Bottleheadphone stand kit, Bottlehead Subette Passive Subwoofer kit, and the Bottlehead DIY flat pack speakers. He prioritizes warmth in design, using solid woods like Alder and Sapele and ensuring his designs complement rather than dominate a room. From turntable platforms to subwoofers, Matt's creations blend modern tech with timeless materials. He’s ecstatic to collaborate with Apos on his latest design, the Wall-mounted Audio Rack.

How much does it cost?

We estimate it’ll cost between $700-850 (including shipping). Remember, the more people who join the group buy, the cheaper the product will be.
