I had the same question regarding the weight issue and stability. I eventually purchased the StudioTech Ultra. Each movable shelf can support 100lbs. Each shelf can be mounted with either rubber tipped or spike shelf supports into a steel frame that is conceled with wood veneers.It is vented with steel mesh on three sides and has an extender panel on the back for equipment that is deeper than the average equipment. With optional kits you can rack mount your equipment, add fans, drawers, wheels, (it comes with hard wood floor glides or carpet spikes). It is a great piece of furniture for heavy equpment.

I have a BellO ATC-2052MN, and while I would agree with Inertia4U on the deficient wire management system, the glass shelves have been supporting a 755, (2)200's and a 950 along with the usual dvd, cd, turntable, etc. without a hitch for a couple of years now - don't have a picture of mine but it can be seen at http://www.audio-video-furniture.com/AUDIO-TOWER-Bello-ATC-2052MN.htm

Take a look at the Solidsteel racks.....Series 6


Some of these are $$$$, but well worth the bucks. Either of these system will solve a lot of problems...isolation, vibration, feedback, etc.

Good luck

Where are the Outlaw racks located on the site? I can't seem to locate them.


For my two cents, from what I've seen, Salamander is the best choice if you need custom built racks to fit your needs. Their "design your own" web application is pretty nice and lets you see exactly what you need.

Haven't found anything else on line to compare yet.

If anyone else has found something similar, would like to know, particularly if their stuff is better value than Salamander.

Of course, if I actually have to go to a store (what a concept eh?) and talk to someone to get what I need, if you have any ideas on manufacturers to look at for that, would be cool too.

I think Outlaw dropped the racks - based on traffic in this corner of the saloon, I suspect that sales were too slow to justify the warehouse space. Of course, you could give them a call and see if they have anything around still - if they do, they could probably e-mail you some pictures of the stuff.

I'm with the Blogger. Salamander racks, while expensive, are extremely well made (translation: support a lot of weight and don't wiggle) and will easily pass the wife approval process (unless she sees the cost). They're very easy on the eyes and built to last.

I just purchased this rack in cherry.


Advertised to hold just about anything. It is a bit expensive but I got fans placed in every compartment and they can customize however you wish.

If you got the money, need something to sit your TV on while keeping your components nice, and you want it to be a central piece of furniture, you may want to consider this little beauty.

If you are interested, I will post a review here once I receive it. After 5 or 6 emails and a couple phone calls, I am convinced I made the right decision for my needs.

I use a BDI Vector 9522. Glass shelves; the bottom one holds 150 lbs, just fine for my 755. My 990 is up top. Connecting cables to the 755 was a bit difficult, solved through 90-degree connectors. Cherry panels meant a high WAF, and the stand is rock-solid.
