    I just completed building an hifi-stand, I designed myself.
    It is made of a welded steel frame, the standalones sit on glass-plates, which in turn rest on 3 spikes on the frame.

    You can read more about the stand on my website: http://www.busch.nu/busch_hifi-rack.htm

    Looks nice. How much did the glass run you?

    The glass was 70 Euros/plate (1cm thick hardened glass).

    I get the spikes for vibration control, but what I'm not sure if I get is why put the hands-on units at the bottom? I'm guessing that you've put them in decreasing order of use, but it still seems to me that the receiver would be the least-touched unit of all.

    That being said, sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

    Holy shiiii...

    70.00 EUR = 89.0482 USD

    I suppose I shouldn't be surprised...quality home theatre is expensive [​IMG]

    Oh, and just a suggestion: ditch the moving binary background on your page...feeling nauseous :S

    While it can be a bit expensive, I'm sure the D.I.Y. route for this particular audio rack was still significantly less than if it had been purchased from a custom vendor.

    Belgarath, Very nice work on the equipment rack! You should go into business making these professionally. [​IMG]

    Kyle-sm:

    Yep, your right.
    However, although I control all components through my Philips Pronto NG remote, I do use the receiver most of all.


    Wayne Ernst,

    Thanks a lot for the compliment.
    All in all the rack cost me 400 Euros in materials, which is significantly less than what I would pay for a similar quality rack in a store.

    BTW, you might enjoy another project of mine, my HTPC called Busch SVC-107TD: http://www.busch.nu/busch_svc-107td.htm
    It has been posted in this forum before though.
