When you’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars on a home stereo system, you’re probably willing to do anything it takes to make it sound as amazing as it can. Or at the least, do anything to convince yourself it sounds as amazing as it can. Like spend $650 on these wooden boards from Japanese home stereo component maker Kripton, which are designed to neutralize vibrations which could affect the performance of your equipment, while minimizing electromagnetic noise.

The Kripton AB-3200 (pictured above) weighs in at ~33 lbs, can support gear up to ~330 lbs, and is actually priced at ~$442. (¥35,700) While the more substantial AB-5200, which weighs in at ~52 lbs, will set you back ~$650. (¥52,500) Both are made from natural woods including teak and rosewood, with a dense MDF wood substrate providing the heft and stability.
