    Help, I am trying to finda 4 or 5 shelf audio rack that does not break my piggy bank. I would like it to have open architecture and some sort of cable management system. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

    I like the Sanus AFA black stand: http://www.hififorless.com/acatalog/...YSTEMS_40.html
    It has cable management and sells for $137 at the above site. You will pay $35 shipping, but that is still cheaper than what this stand normall sells for. It goes for $189.00 directly from Sanus.

    William,

    I have the BellO AT-484 component rack and love it. Very stylish, glass shelves that tier back, open all the way around, wire management inside the frame, and room for seven shelves.

    I got mine at a local Tweeter for $249. That is the rack and four shelves. Extra shelves are $50 a pop.

    Good Luck!

    Peace,

    DM

    If you like the style of the flexy rack, but don't have the talent for DIY, I suggest you look into Salamander. A 5 shelf rack will run around $250. These racks come with very nice finished shelves.

    Marty,
    Where can you get the Salamander for $250?
    Also, I went to www.hififorless.com and saw the sanus model for $137. It seems nice. However, is the similar StudioTech model as good or better than the Sanus? Would appreciate any help.
    Thanks,
    Bill

    William,

    The studio tech doesn't have the cable management like the Sanus does. I like both of them.

    William,
    I don't know "exactly" what your requirements are for an
    A/V Rack but for me (I looked at Sanus and some others)
    I decided on a Bush Visions A/V Cabinent in Galaxy finish.
    It's not real wood it's Veneered MDF and has 2 front glass
    doors and storage in the pedastool and CD storage in the
    front and Movie/DVD storage in the side. It works out for
    me and you can add more shelves by purchasing more from
    Bush.
    You can see the Visions A/V Rack at http://www.bushfurniture.com
