    As a former GP user I would say go for it if it s the model with the carbon fiber shelves. They are much better than those using the acrylic platforms. I would go so far as to urge those using the acrylic to upgrade. Finite is always good. Hard not to like their sweet warm character.

    Bebop,

    I am thinking about selling my GPA stuff. I have a 3 shelf rack, and an amp stand. Apex footers/Tungsten ball bearings and all formula shelves.

    I've owned both. Years ago a Finite Element Master Pagogode with the Cerabases and a few Cerapucs under certain components.

    Grand Prix in a different class...clearly better.

    I did like the looks of the Finite...
