    I've seen them before but can't recall where.

    I'm looking for a free-standing AV stand that as the Plasama Mount built in and includes some shelves for a few pieces of equipment.

    Anyone know what companies I should be looking at.

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    An AV rack with shelves...erm..... how big, how many, what material?

    Actually, I'm a big fan of making your own.
    I've made 3 over the years as my equipment changes. It costs a tiny fraction of having a pre-built one and you can tailor the design to your needs.

    You don't need to be a DIY guru either.

    I just worked out the size of each peice of wood I'd need to make the thing.
    Then I popped down to my local timber merchants and asked to them cut my chosen wood into exact sized peices.
    I took them home, fixed them together then sanded down and polished it up.

    Now I have a home made wooden cabinet that looks like it was tailor made for my kit, including my large KEF THX Centre speaker.

    It requires a bit of thought and planning, but well worth the effort.

    Handy tip... take your wife/girlfriend to persuade the guys at the timber merchants to cut the wood for free and round off some edges :thumbsup:
    In my experience, they really like 'helping out' females, but get a bit shirty with blokes.
