    I've been looking online for a 4 shelf component rack and DVD/CD storage unit and not having luck finding what I want, so I thought I would come here to ask for recomendations.

    I want to buy both units to match, and I prefer the metal and glass look. I would like the AV rack to have a good cable management system, so that the cables can be as hidden as possible.

    I really like the look of the Boltz floorstanding DVD/CD racks, but their AV racks aren't as nice, and they are super expensive.

    If anyone has any recomendations for a good company that has products that suite my needs, I would appreciate it. Budget is under $500 for both units.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you checked out the glass and metal component rack at walmart.. its only $80.. it looks nice the only downside is the shelves cannot hold a ton of weight.

    It's not super high tech or anything, but both Target and Wal-Mart have some audio cabinets that look nice and should work fine.

    There are undoubtedly higher quality ones out there, but I'd prefer to put the extra money into my projector/speaker/cables/receive/etc.

    I'd second the flexy option. I built one with wood shelves http://www.moesrealm.com/hometheater/flexyrack.html but there is nothing stopping you from building one with Plexi or glass shelves.

    Nice things about flexy racks is you can build them to your exact specifications and they are a great bang for the buck.
