Question about shelving... while you guys are here, I gotta ask for recommendations for any ample and sturdy shelving for some heavy duty amps. Back home I had an Emo sitting on top of the equipment cabinet, as it's too big to fit inside. And I had to install a fan inside to keep the AVR cool. I'm looking for something more suitable.
Some of you have posted pics of your racks/shelving and when I inquired about one, was told it was "Flexi rack". But when I googled the name I only found instructions on how to build your own... nothing I can just buy and assemble. I've looked at HD for prefab shelving but most of it is too small and too thin to support the weight of a hefty power amp, much less three of them.
I bought a nice TV stand for a 70 incher that looked like it would accommodate some equipment on the lower shelves, but when I got it assembled and went to place the gear I discovered that the struts reinforcing the shelves were about a half inch too low, protruding into the shelf space below and prevented pushing the AVR all the way in. I'm sure a smaller AVR would fit, but not my Denon monster.
Ultimately I will have the Denon and two Emo's probably on a free standing three shelf open air rack and leave the TV stand for smaller gear such as the BR player, cable box and such. Any suggestions? I'm not into woodworking but have fabricated a few pieces in the past out out of necessity. Thanks for any pointers.
