looking for a new audio rack.

Hi everyone, I'm in the market for a new audio rack just for audio equipment, turntable, Integrated amp, DAC, etc, etc... I will probably need two, sturdy 4 shelf racks with spikes.. I would love to know what other audiophiles are using so I can get some idea's.. My total budget for the shelf would be around $600. to $700.00

Sturdy is the key word, any help would be appreciated.

I've been eyeballing this site below for about a year but haven't pulled the trigger just yet.

Build one yourself

 

Invest in some 1/4" threaded rod, bolts, and washers. for shelving you can use maple or any other type of material. Drill holes into shelving and slide the shelves down the threaded rod and have them resting on the washers and bolts. This design is used by Michael Green and Salamander.

Gives you flexibility in spacing the shelves to your liking and is heavy enough to make the stand as sonically dead as possible. Good luck!

If you want to see mine: Go to the gallery and look under "mark evans"

nice shelf

Thanks Mark,

that is a great idea. I did think about building my own rack and yours has possibilities. I do like the fact the shelves can be made to fit any piece of equipment.. I bet drilling holes in marble wasn't easy..
