Joe,
If you have the inclination, time, and background to build an AV Stand, the savings would be tremendous. Thinking of that, I think it would be pretty cool to have a DIY AV Stand Subforum. Otherwise, Sanus makes a quality product and Salamander are excellent as well.
Cheers,
J

I searched high and low, the salamander was the only rack that was fully adjustable, open design, could handle 100 lbs on each shelf and was a good value. Ended up with a rack that can easily handle my 70 lb amplifier, has excellent ventilation on all sides for all shelves and all of them can be adjusted to exactly the shelf heights needed. All together very hard specs to find. Sure its an easy design to build yourself but for me spending $230 and saving the time finishing all the boards was worth it.

Thanks for the input guys!

I really like the thought of DIY, but as Type A said, once I get to the point of setting gear up in the closet, I may be all DIY'd out. Thanks for the suggestions - one question - if I understand correctly with the Salamander shelves, you can actually stack 2 of those to make a 6' shelf - is that correct?

Re: Looking for a good HT equipment rack

Hello,
Salamander makes some of the best ones out there. My little brother uses Billy Bags for every single application from his TV Stand to his Media Collection and I must say it too is amazing. However, it is hideously expensive and I personally could not fathom spending thousands of Dollars just to store LP's, DVD's, SACD, Blu-rays, et al.

That is the one area where I went with relatively budget Racks. The BDI Deploy Max that I use for my TV and Center Channel I absolutely adore. It was one of the most fortuitous purchases in my life as it was during the final days of Sound Advice (part of Tweeter/HiFi Buys Chain) when the Liquidators had taken over.

At that stage, the price on the Tag was the price you paid with absolutely zero exceptions. In this instance, amazingly they literally left a Zero off the Tag so a $600 Stand was $27 Dollars as opposed to $270 Dollars. When I saw it, I found the Salesmen that I knew the best there and showed him the Stand. He laughed and rushed the transaction and loading it in my car. The box was so big that roughly half of it was hanging out the trunk. Nonetheless, when I got home and set it up, I was blown away by the build quality and ease of construction.
Cheers,
JJ

Re: Looking for a good HT equipment rack

Wow - what a find!! Best $27 ever spent in history IMO......

I was searching around last night and came across the Billy Bags racks. I looked across at the price on the first couple, did one of these , and immeadiately left that page.

I could not agree more! And I think my brother is insane to spend so much on Billy Bags. He has both a 2 Channel and a HT that are both utterly insane. While I feel so blessed to have a nice HT, his setups are utterly insane. Especially the 2 Channel which features Focals with Beryllium Tweeters powered by Rogue Audio M-180 Monoblocks, Rogue Audio Preamp, Rockport Turntable, and Cabling that costs more than many wonderful sounding HT's.
Cheers,
J

Re: Looking for a good HT equipment rack

Those are indeed some nice racks, something I, too, definitely appreciate.

I'm a fan of those flexy racks, too, I wish they had been around back when I was using regular racks for my gear! Interesting that the Salamander rack is almost precisely the DIY Flexy rack in black with some polished bits.
