    Can I put the HomePod on my computer desk? It is a floating desk so its not really solid and I am worried about the vibrations in the air and through the desk hurting my external HDD and my iMac. The HomePod will be about 2.5 feet from the equipment.
    Thanks for any help.

    Buy one, test it.

    Good: keep it.
    Bad: return it.

    Problem solved!

    I am more concerned about the safety of my hard drives. It really is the only place i can put it.

    • turn the Mac off
    • disconnect the hard drives
    • put a coin on the desk
    • make the HomePod play some fat base
    • see if the coin bounces around
    • draw conclusion
    See my previous post :)

    I'm pretty sure bass is Hdd-safe, otherwise millions of DJ's would be buying new drives weekly.
