A well designed equipment stand should provide a stable vibration free platform allowing your equipment to perform at its maximum sonic potential. Its structure should be optimized to damp mechanical energy through the use of proper mass loading and rigid interfacing with the floor while decoupling your electronics from distortion inducing vibrations. If effective isolation from mechanical forces is not achieved, the resolving abilities of your audio components will be severely limited.
 


Next, consideration should be taken to allow for the proper circulation of air to prevent any overheating of the audio components. It is a well known fact that thermal instability has its own consequences. Along with the obvious side effects of temperature variations (mainly subtle shifts in a component's overall sonic signature), there are also the risks associated with circuit elements operating beyond their thermal ratings. If precautions to ensure proper ventilation are not taken, components being asked to perform beyond their capacity will certainly have a decreased life expectancy resulting from thermal stress.
