    Hi.

    I'm currently in the middle of moving house, and that means I can finally get a new TV rack...you can see below why I don't like the current one.

    Only issue I'm having is that I can't find one that can take my centre speaker, without spending a fortune on it. The centre speaker is the MA silver which is 500*200*185mm (w*h*d), closest I've found is the Sonorous lb1620 but the centre space is 490mm wide.

    Ideally I'd pay under £400, and it would be similar colour wood to my speakers.
    It also needs to be able to take the tv ontop, ideally not with a mount for the stand as it will be sitting in a bay window.
    Any ideas?

    Here's a list of what it needs to hold along with rough dimensions in cm.
    Silver Centre - 50*20
    RXA830 - 44*18
    Xbox 360 - 32*9 (plus power brick)
    Xbox one 33*8 (vent on top)
    740c CD- 43*12
    Bx580 Bluray - 43*5
    Dvsp 406 DVD - 44*6 (not vital)
    Sky HD- 35*7
    Wii - 5*16 (add 6 for GC controller use)
    Router - 6*14
    Sonos connect - 14*8
    WD NAS - 5*20
    RPi2 - 6*10

    Thanks.

    Design the cabinet to suit your needs then find a local joiner who can make it for you. That's what I did and it cost less than £400

    Thats a really nice unit. Can I ask how you did the lighting and what did you use.

    Thanks

    Thanks
    The joiner who built the unit just made an allowance for feeding an led strip along the top and through the walls of the cabinet

    That looks really smart. May copy this idea.
