I'm looking to purchase an inexpensive rack or rack system for my HT gear. The rack will be placed in my furnace room so I absolutely could care less what it looks like.


I would prefer an open rack system for maximum ventilation. It needs to hold:


Sound receiver (probably Onkyo 806)

Blu-Ray player (probably Panasonic 35 or similar)

Dish network 622 or similar receiver

room for a couple more sat receiver sized components


Thanks in advance!

Why not an old server rack - should get them dirt cheap on craigslist...


Example - For 50$

That is essentially what I did. My company had an old rack in the dumpster so I ran out with some tools and unbolted the primary rails. I then cut the rails down to size (sawzall) and screwed them into my framed out opening.


If you don't care what it looks like, I might also consider something like this which would be quite well ventilated and plenty of places to route and zip-tie cables. Also, not too expensive:
