A recent test match in a Home Cinema mag gave this AV rack 5 out of 5 stars. Absolutely raved about it. It beat a couple of glass and chrome AV dedicated racks costing £300+. I was quite taken with it as it is nice and low compared to most AV racks. Their test stated it will safely support a 100kg load (higher than Ikea's stated 70kg). They also said that for best acoustic isolation use the top or base thicker shelves to support the more sensitive equipment rather than the thinner adjustable shelves. The adjutable shelves can be put in the centre section too. At 50cm deep it can easily accommodate my huge Pioneer AX5Ai-S AV amplifier with no overhang at front or back. With the Sagem 56" DLP screen on top, I can fit the AV amp in one side, my DVD player and recorder in the other side and my centre speaker and Freeview box in the middle. Sorted!
