Wall Shelf for Heavy AV Components

I've been searching for hours looking for wall-mounted shelves for my Denon 6500 (32 lbs) and Emotiva XPA-3 Gen 1 (57 lbs). The only thing I've found that is nice looking and capable of handling that weight is a wall-mounted AV rack (at $1000).

For where I need those devices, only a wall mount would work. My only other alternative is to put them on top of a SVS PB-13 and I want to avoid that option given the potential issues that might introduce.

Have you seen anything on-wall that might work for those heavy components?

FYI: After a bunch of research, I ended up going with these.

I'm actually looking for the same thing and I am highly considering mounted one of these to the wall (see pic). I've got about 70lbs worth of stuff to put in there and most of the reviews say it will sufficiently hold 130lbs!

My concern is I was going to wall mount it right above where my marty sub is and I'm worried that the metal rack will vibrate and make too much noise...

I was looking at a rack solution and even evaluated the one you mentioned. However, when I looked at the end expense, mounting hassle, and need for heat monitoring, the open rack system worked fine for me.

That being said, I run a 42U closet rack for my main HT. So I do love a nice rack.

Do you think one of those would be a rattle trap if I wall mounted it above a marty sub?

Maybe. Do your walls shake? If they do, those vibrations will transfer to the wall rack.

Yep.

I suppose I'd be better off building a rack out of wood to lessen the potential issues...
