Built-in tilt for perfect aim at seating position. Again, no enclosure for center channel to resonate in. Speaker brackets can be removed [same with the shelf]and table utilised as an occasional table, if one sees fit later on.

Thanks AttaQ

Since I don't get to live with my designs, I seek pleasure and satisfaction from the process.

This Audio Protein Buffet was recently shipped to Albany, New York to go under a FP screen.

Shelf is adjustable, other units in the works include Ebony, Rosewood and Maple 8" columns. 19" component width spacing. Sizing built to suit.

VB,

I seriously doubt he would be, I actually met him once, and he didn't seem like the jealous type But thanks

Name origin is from my ex-wife's nickname for me.. [ bruiser] spoken affectionately...not as in wife beater

Tommy's unit is reminiscent of a Soundations design, where the glass is a single pane extending thru the center [I'm betting].

I may have someone interested in my Altar design...stretched for length:



Only problem is financing the $600 custom shaper cutter, ouch!

It's damn near ideal b/c you can put speakers on top of this platform. It also has a bottom shelf, below the shelf that holds the t/v. And it sits on large casters. If any of that makes sense.

Sorry I can't give a better description. It's all I can remember. Here's a brilliant rendering of what I recall (the single line being the floor).

It's very simple and open (only 4 poles and 3 shelves, no back or sides) probably ideal for many. I think it was $195. Alas it's too deep and wide for my set-up.


I just saw one of these yesterday - it's a nice design IMO, and I'm debating between getting one, or spending $500-800 for something more substantial, probably from Bell'o. Here is the Lack entertainment center on the Ikea Australia site. Another view.

LACK... yep it Lack's beauty all together. It looks more like a storage shelf you'd find in somebody's garage. Just my personal opinion.

Jeez - that's what I get for trying to help!

Meanwhile, I think I've talked myself into the Bello AVSC-2517MC. Is that any better from your standpoint?

Nice job, Brucer! I've been away from this thread for a while and missed your post a while back about this credenza. Does your customer find that his Krell amp does not overheat in this enclosed space? Even with the doors open, I'd think that the 20" width is a tight fit for such a large amp. Please e-mail me with info on what this unit cost to build (with and without the plasma support bars), if you would.

During my neverending search to find a "furniture-type" TV stand with a height suitable for my Samsung 6168, I came across this site:

Modloft

To see the stands they offer, check the 8th and 9th pages of their catalogue. They have about 15 or so.

They don't seem to offer different finishes (only a wenge finish) and seem to be made of MDF with a veneer. Some of them also don't seem very functional (for IR reasons and possibly ventilation). Still, "furniture-type" stands with such a low height are difficult to find so I thought I'd share the info.

Thanks Geekman,

So far so good. The inside width is slightly wider than the openings, and the cabinet well ventilated. The Krell amp [a heavy beast] was previously parked in the bottom of a wall unit rack on a slide out shelf [with even less clearances], I built a few years ago for him. That tall unit had pocket doors, and never had any heat problems, although I'm fairly sure he left doors open most of the time system was in use. I've yet to have to add fans for cooling to any unit I have designed and built, this includes rack mount pro gear racks for sound reinforcement systems. Of course pro gear tends to have fans in the components, anyway.

I was looking at stands for the Samsung 6168w, because the official TR61X2 is a bit too short for me at 17". But the one (Z-line Z22-1S, 22" tall) I'm looking at most closely is slightly too small for the TV - only 55" wide, while the TV is 56.9" wide. Might this present a problem - should I worry about it?

Other stands I was looking at include the Gusdorf 18421 (19.25") and the TR63 (20.3"), the stand for the older Samsung 63 series.

Take a look at this stand as it sounds like it will fit in the size dept you're looking at. All metal/steel and glass contemporary open shelf type stand.

Dimensions: 59-1/8"W x 17-3/4"D x 19-7/8"H
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=3601502

"When only ultra-contemporary style will do, Bush's Platinum Mist 60" Flat Panel TV Stand is for you. Tempered glass shelves rest on vibration-dampening rubber pads for enhanced sound quality. Eye-catching open architecture allows you to configure your components however you wish. Tested for tip stability with your safety in mind."

Last night I put together my Bello AVSC-2517MC. This thing is really nice. It weighs 120 pounds, and is solid as a rock.

Unfortunately I had to remove the feet from my Kenwood VR-4090, which can't be good for it. I had worried about having room for my center channel, and hadn't even thought about the height of my largish receiver. On the bright side, I would kinda like an excuse to ditch the receiver anyway - hopefully it will last until HDMI-capable receivers are more affordable.

You're right.....there's lots of nice stands out there but few that will work with certain components and speakers. I like your choice of Bello but I finally had to go with the AVS-2601. It had about the most usable shelf space. (height and width).

I see one person here has it and loves it, but I have a 45 lb Pioneed RT-707 reel- to-reel tape deck and I just won a 42 lb HK AVR-635 receiver on e-Bay. I want to put a Technics SL-1300 turntable on something and my new Panasonic S-97 DVD player on it too. The AT-423T just scares me. I have the Bello AT-422T rack which is its companion. They do match, but the thing I have supports the lower glass shelves in little clips at two points attached to the two front legs, and the glass then slides into a slit in the rear center column. That gives each glass shelf three points of support. With the AT-423T, each glass shelf is supported only by the two little clips at the sides. The shelves are rated to hold 50 lbs each, but with components like mine, I fear I am too close to the limit wrt the tape deck and the HK receiver. How much weight is anybody trusting to this rack? Does anyone think about 45 lbs on two of the 4 shelves would be safe? Bello has another 5 shelf rack that has 4 straight legs and looks a lot safer (the AT-4211), but it has a companion that also has 4 straight (vertical) legs and so it might look funny with my three-legged AT-422T, two of whoes legs come up and back at an angle. The AT-423T's legs also come up and back at an angle so it matches what I have, but is it safe for 45 lb components?

Sit in you favourite chair and measure your eye height above the floor. Then measure from the center height of your TV screen to the bottom of your TV. Subtract this from your eye height and you have the perfect height for your stand.

I just bought this stand at a great price for my soon to be 42 inch Panasonic Plasma.

Hopefully it will fit fine.

Just ordered a 60" sxrd and looking for a stand...

What stand satisfies your need for room for a center speaker? What did you buy?

I'm looking at the BELLO AVS-2762

Any suggestions??
