Hello all,

I am in the process of completing my home theater and I was wondering what audio rack/audio tower would you recommend. The only components I am going to have on the rack are VCR, digital cable box, Denon DVD-1600, and Denon AVR-2803. I am looking to get a 4 or 5 shelf audio rack. I am thinking of a price range

Yeah, i say go with a flexy rack as well... cheap, sturdy, and easy to build

While I built a Flexy rack, I have since moved on to a much better rack and the difference as far as stability is concerned is huge.

Here is a link of what I just purchased. Flexy racks are cheap that's for sure but I've since moved on and loving it.

Click on "My Gear" in my sig and you can see what I use. Sanus "Accurate" line. You can get the black version (they don't make the Maple anymore) for just over 100.00.

thanks for reply guys. Scott, every man enjoys a nice rack. I will let you decide which one you want to enjoy. The flexy would be a cool project for me to do. I did not buy those power tools to just feel like a man.....

My vote is also for a flexi. I built a 4 (instead of the normal 3) post flexi and I really don't think it could be any sturdier.
I used pre veniered particle board then veniered the edges after cutting them. Then stained, sanded and a couple of quotes of clear. It looks great and is definately very sturdy.

I can't find any bullnose MDF at HD or lowes. None of the southern cali stores carry bullnose mdf. Anyone in so. cal. know where I can get some? I guess I could just use the regular MDF square edges and perhaps sand them down. But I dont know how good of a sander I am. HD and Lowes did have some particle board bullnose.

Is partcle board a worthy substitute?? What is melanine? There are white treated melanine and untreated. Or should I get the regular MDF and be happy? Anyone in so. cal. know where I can get bullnose MDF? I have tried Ganahal lumber also.
