Wall mounted av and comms enclosure


Standard Member
Hi all, I am currently in the middle of building a home cinema with a small office room behind it. I’d like to store all my av kit in that room, but I would like it to be ideally up high. The things I need in there are:

AV Receiver
8 port switch
4 port switch
Router (in modem mode)
shield pro
hp micro server
possibly a blue ray player but unlikely

I was thinking of a wall mount server rack 12U but most seem to be network based so poor cooling for server and amp.

I found this but only 6U deep:

I also found this one, it was cheap but high postage as from France:

The second looks better for cooling, it is available elsewhere for £350 but I would rather keep the cost down.

Would be grateful for suggestions of what others use. It doesn’t need to be a cabinet it could be open shelves if needed. I could even if I had to store the switches above the ceiling in the loft space but being accessible would be easier. Come to think of it the server could go in there too if needed but again maybe best to be accessible.

Thanks in advance
