It looks better than this now, I have it all trimmed out. I'll post some better pics once I get the rest of the stuff put in and situated.
I had to wait forever for the Denon 1909 shelf to be added to their database. I tried to get denon to send them a unit but they just laughed at me (more or less). I don't really think the techs and denon could take accurate enough measurements for something that precise. I'm sure there is some trial and error involved as alot of the faceplates have curves and such.
What splendid racks on display here, I can only hope to achieve similar result.
I am attempting to do something similar to what hellerbrewing above is doing:
I have a media room whose back wall is shared with a closet in the adjoining room. It's a big closet. I want to put in a Slim 5 MA 37 space rack in there with the faces of the components showing in the media room, just like you have...
I was thinking of ordering the following:
Rack - http://www.performanceaudio.com/cgi/...oducts_id=1949
4 of these custom faceplates+shelves:http://www.performanceaudio.com/cgi/...oducts_id=2225
since I have the following devices:
Denon 3310 - 5 space
PS3 - 3 space
Toshiba HD-A3 - 2 space
Dish HDDVR VIP722 - 3 space
1) Would I need anything else besides the above parts? like screws and such, i am not sure if they are included?
2) I am going to have a carpenter make the appropriate cut in the closet wall (since my studs are 16" apart and this would involve cutting a stud out and building a header -> way over my head) and am also going to have him put the trim around it (in the media room). I am not sure how exactly is the rack attached to the wall? I mean, are the front rack rails mounted to the wall? If so, then wouldn't this cover up the holes for attaching the custom faceplate?
If not, then does the rack just sit there without being fixed to the wall? is the rack going to remain stable like this?
From your photo, it looks like the rack is free-standing? can you confirm?
3) Does the custom rack shelf above include the shelf and the custom faceplate? or just the shelf? i think it's both, but just want to confirm..
Thanks in advance,
