Excellent guide, very comprehensive.

I've checked your two references at the start also, and I'll
just note the somewhat contentious issue of dressing
the arm lead correctly is not covered.

I have to saythat I have found that after experimenting with a wall shelf and the top of a rack on a slightly wobbly floor , than the rack on the floor was better.
This I believe is due to the high level of resonance induced into a wall rack from the weight of the turntable on the unsuppoted end.Even though there is a diaganal brace to support some of this weight you can feel in most wall shelf the high frequency resonance if you tap the far end.
This I belive results in a peaky treble and a higher level of vinyl noise.Though bass weight was more solid and firm.
On the floor rack the midrange opened out and the treble region was smoother and less brittle, but the bass was a little softer.
I used to have a concrete floor in my old house , which was the best of all.
