Possibly this thread would be more comfortable in "General Hardware" - moderators feel free to redirect if you wish. Does anyone have any suggestions for CHEAP but beneficial stands or racks for AV equipment? Lack of floorspace means that I am going to have to look at arranging things vertically, as I am going to end up with big, deep, 32" TV, Sky+ box, DVD player, processor, power amp, DVHS video recorder, two fair-sized floorstander speakers, a large centre speaker, and a fair-sized subwoofer all up the same end of the room, and there just isn't that much floorspace. I don't mind spending a bit more money to get something sturdy enough to support my power amp (Bryston 9B THX). If I am going to put the amp on the shelf then it needs plenty of space for airflow around it. I don't mind spending a bit more to get something where the shelves are properly isolated from each other and from the frame to reduce vibration. I would like something that's made from a material with good internal damping. Most HiFi racks seem to have metal frames and shelves made of glass - what's that about? It may look nice, but surely it will ring almost as badly as metal once it starts to vibrate? Chipboard or MDF or something like that seems like a much better bet. I don't care at all what it looks like. And I don't want to pay three times the price for something just because it is called a "Hifi Rack" instead of "Shelves". Any suggestions?
