    I am interested in this rack from Ikea called the Oppli
    I am more interested in this style rack than this specific one. I like that it is wider than it is tall. I also like that it holds six components.
    The problem is that I really don't know much about Ikea as a company. They state that they use a birch veneer. Anyone have any experience with Ikea?
    Anyone know an alternative company that uses this wider than taller rack?
    Thanks for any help.
    Jon

    I think Ikea is generally a good company. The wood is just mdf (i think) with the veneer. The quality of it seems pretty good. The few pieces I have hold up. The stuff is completely disassebled but they make it clear how to put it together.
    I don't think it's as nice as real hardwood - but your not paying a lot either.

    I use an ikea wall init that my father bought about 20 years ago. Its still looks great and has not broken anywhere. Ikea's wood products are quite popular here and generally have a good reputation.

    I have that exact same rack but in Black and I love it, it works great. The only problem is I'm about to get a new Panny 47 inch and I'm going to have to get rid of the rack now. Oh well I only paid $80 for it anyway. Good purchase anyway.

    I am wondering if my components will fit in the alloted shelves. They do not post the dimensions of the shelves on the website or in their catalog.
    If it's not too much trouble, could you give me the measurements of the useable inside dimensions of the shelves?
    It's good to hear that Ikea has a good rep. I could only hope that a piece of furniture used to hold stuff could last 20 years.

    No problem Jon the width is 17 1/2, inches and the height is 10 1/4. In each of the 3 spaces across. and you have a shelf that you can adjust in height by moving the pins they give you into 3 different heights. hope everything fits, I haven't had any problems with my components fitting.

    Thank you very much Dan. I'll have to figure out if all of my components will fit.
    Once again thanks. [​IMG]
