    Has anyone come across some wall shelves for standard size Hifi Kit? I'm interested in two shelves, one for an amp and one for a CD player. Glass or wood preferable.

    Just the sort of thing I'm after but they cost more than the equipment I've just bought.
    Anything similar available?

    I'm thinking right now of my bathroom suite which has a glass shelf near the bathroom - bought at B&Q. Perhaps a visit to the bathroom section there and a subsequent trip to a glazier to modify what you see/buy would be the answer.

    There is a danger, though, that any such modified item may not be sturdy enough to hold the weight of your equipment. I can't think of anything else.

    Let me know what you do eventually

    MMM... Not to sure about shelves anymore. Did think about a couple of those metal things they make for Poratble TV's but its got to look good as well. Maybe I will look for a stand instead. I just don't want to keep bending down low and fiddling about with CD's, I want everyting at a decent height.

    Ikea do CD shelves that you can hang up on the walls horizontally. If you have one nearby it might be worth a visit.

    vogels do a system where you have no shelf just a v-shaped metal prong. Can be used like that or source some glass seperately.
    www.vogels.com
    and look in the consumer section.

    I thought you couldn't hang a plasma from the ceiling as the glass warps because it gets so hot and the screen cracks?
