    Hi

    just bought one and didnt think it would be that huge :lesson:

    any recommendations for a stand? it will also need to support my plasma 5090, ps3 and xbox

    PS i have seen a Alphason | Iconn Series - Model: ST300 120-B - open stand but am worried that with only 2cm clearance on bottom shelf it might be a close call for the airflow

    your thoughts?

    cheers

    Amp Dimensions (W x H x D) 420 x 200 x 459,5 mm @18.5kg / TV 50" weight 33kg

    I have an Soundstyle ST310 with a Pioneer 508XD on top, with an B&W LCR6 (a big centre speaker) on the middle shelf and my SC-LX71 on one side of the bottom shelf and my BDP-LC08 and SKY HD box on the other. Plenty of room all round, it's a really nice rack that I would thoroughly recommend.

    I have one of these stands (SONOROUS) and the '81 sits nicely on the left side of the bottom shelf. Bid of a squeeze getting it in there since the amp is so deep but is good. :)

    Try the Alphason AD3/105, my LX70 fits fine. Here's a tip, when I was looking for a stand, I made paper templates the exact size of the 'footprint' of my kit. It was easy then to place them on different stands to check it they will fit. You'll also need a tape measure for the height.
    Good luck,
    Dave

    I am pretty much settled on the SC71 but would appreciate any feedback on space/cooling requirements. I would only have 20mm clearance above the unit when installed, although there is more space at the sides and the back would be open. How hot does the unit run and has anyone had problems with overheating?

    Thanks in advance

    My LX71 runs pretty cool even at -10 to -15db. I have a good 5 cm clearence using my ST310 stand but I feel it would be fine with half that.
