    BESTA go big or go home!

    Question Besta unit cooling info

    Hi all, I haven't put the doors on yet but as you can see my amp is in the middle, at the back of it there is a big cutout already so I am hoping that will be enough when the door is on for the hot air to escape. Where the PlayStation 4 pro is there are small cutouts in the top left and right...

    BESTÅ both worlds... family lounge meets home cinema

I've got lots of...

    A Modest Ikea Besta Build Log

    This isn't going to be your standard audiophile super-duper build (sorry), rather a more modest and I daresay, more common (?) sort of build. Like most, I'd love to have a dedicated home cinema room, but a young (boisterous!) family negates the outgoings for such wonderful things. That said...
