Anyone here made his/her own stands and racks?
I am thinking of getting one made.
What are the things that separate the good from the bad (apart from the looks).
Any tips, links would be appreciated.
Well Dichkaun wood has its obvious advantages but i have seen some (partington+ alphason etc) steel/glass racks which were superb. The glass was 12 mm and the steel pipes were really heavy and thick. If it matches the rest of the decor go for it.Hi dinyaar,
I was thinking of steel and toughened glass. Any advantage of wood over that? Glass and steel only because it gels in with rest of the decor.
What is the difference between an AV rack and a HIFI rack? My plan is to make one with 5 shelves (two players, Pre, power, one extra) keeping future expansion in mind. For now I will be placing only the player and a int. amp in the rack.
A few specific question:
* Do I need to use spikes for legs? (some online pics show that) What is teh advantage?
* What sort of damping needs to be there?
Thanks for the standanddeliver.com link. Got some good ideas there.
PS: For those who are wondering, I am getting some wood/masonry work done in or flat. So decided to get some work done for my music/movie needs too.
Thank you guys.
Let's see what I come up with.
