ive noticed in many pictures of home theaters, People's media rack faceplates are cut perfectly for the device in the rack. Xbox 360, dvd, blu ray, reciever etc etc.

I'm looking to eventually buy a rack and my questions is how do you get the faceplate cut so perfectly to fit the devices?

There are several companies that you can buy specific face plate cutouts or from Middle Atlantic directly (though that is a little harder).

I buy from:

You should indicate the maker and model of whatever component you are looking for -- it stays pretty up to date!

A finished rack is a beautiful thing. smile.gif

I was going to comment that Stayonline was expensive until I looked at the prices over at performanceaudio.com .. I was paying around $105 just last year .. that's a 30% increase. As IF, it wasn't expensive enough to do a MA rack.

wow thats great so the company makes it for ya. I always wondered.
Thanks and OMG its approximately $140 for plate and shelf. that would be roughly 600 bucks to cover my devices with shelves and faceplates. This is not including the rack itself.
Ugh. it could get a bit pricey. not sure if the price is worth it just yet. I think i"ll keep my custom shelf in the wall for now.

Thanks so much

this is the reason I'm building my own in-wall shelf as well. I just can't spend more on the rack than the gear it's holding.
