Looking for long-ish media unit


Prominent Member
I'm looking for a media unit for underneath my 42" Panasonic TV. The length must be around 200cm and wide enough to contain my Onkyo hts3305 receiver which is pretty bulky.

Ideally, I am thinking something similar to the IKEA lack unit but a bit wider as this is only 151 cms and maybe or this, although probably something which is open so you can see the consoles, Sky etc.

I don't really want to pay much more than £100ish so IKEA might be the only place suitable but has anyone saw any or modified any within my budget? I like the look of this but again it is not wide enough

I got these from Ikea.

The main unit is actually a shelving unit on it's side. One shelf is left out so the centre speaker fits.
It's 190cm long by 35cm high and 38cm deep (75x14x15 in Roman Catholic)
It was about £80. The other unit is a bedside cabinet and was £10. The internal dimensions are 45cmx45cm (17.5x17.5).

how big is the TV on your ikea unit? The Lack one that's a similar size suggests it can be used as a TV stand for a small TV but i'm looking for one that would be used for a 32 inch for now with scope to upgrade to a 50 inch plasma in the new year
