    I have the Bell'o AVSC-2103. It holds my 34" widescreen Sony TV which weighs close to 200 lbs.

    Yep, while fairly light, these nicer AVR's are large.

    Usually well beyond what most TV stands / cabinates can take. Generally need to step up to real component rack / shelf system once at this level.

    Thats gotta be great for the internals. All the stands that would fit it are super expensive.

    I'm using a Piano Black, Silver, and glass stand from Wal-Mart. It looks much more expensive than it really was ($80). The 1014TX just barely fits although i'm using fairly stiff cables w/ fairly deep connectors (Canare). Here's a picture of the stand while it still had a Pioneer Elite 43TX in it:

    I'm going to be getting the same receiver but i'm actually going to be building all of my speaker stands and equipment rack. I was looking for a nice rack and found all of them were like 200$ and had like 30$ worth of materials.
    My suggestion is take measurements of what you'd like to see and do it yourself. Pride of building somthing is the best.

    Stephen do you know what brand that is???

    Mike I'm in the same boat. I could easily make something better for less than 2. But that 80$ stand seems nice.

    Just do search on this site for "flexi rack".

    I built 1 and I swear I can sit on it ..... and I'm 300 pounds.

    My unit is about 20" deep, and about 20" wide.

    Sorry no pictures, I don't own a digital camera.

    Not sure the brand name. Walmart doesn't have it on the website anymore but I still see them in some stores (but not all). They also have a vertical version to go beside RPTVs for the same price.

    Just measured my cabinet. Luckily, it is about 24" deep, so NO problem for my 1014 this week :)

    The 1014 is nothing, try a H/K AVR-7200 it is over 20" deep and weighs 72 lbs. I do like my 1014, it seems to have no trouble driving my M&K S-125s yet the AVR7200 would keep shutting down

    hey,
    I recently created a flexy rack. It is awesome and was pretty fun to build if you're into that kind of thing. You can see pics on my website.

    Good luck with ur search

    Hey Stephen
    Hows the ventilation on that. The manual suggests an 8 in clearing. Does it get real hot?

    Nice rig BTY! How do you like your swans??

    The oak rack I am using is a mere 17" deep, which is insufficient for a 17" deep amp, allowing for breathing space behind it (4" is good). My solution was to get a piece of particle board furniture, cut it to 21" deep and the exact width of the shelf where I wanted to put the amp, effectively extending the shelf. The weight of the amp is still 90% on the oak, and it's weight keeps everything solidly in place. Of course, You could also remove the back of the cabinet (if it has one)........[​IMG]

    When I first put my parents' system together, I came to the same conclusion: holy crap, it's too big for the wooden entertainment center!

    Turns out though that ventilation is poor in that center, and the fact that the TX1014 holds the front door just a crack open really is a blessing! [​IMG]

    I only have about 4" clearance at the top but have had no issues due to heat. I've felt the top after extended periods of use (up to 3 hours) and while not cold to the touch it didn't feel hot enough that any damage could be done, definitely not so hot that I wouldn't want to touch it.
