    Yeah, now these it is possible to find. Seen a few. Even found one that was a super shorty. A bit massive to put in my living space The shorter one you have gives the option of putting a larger surface on the top. Need this as I have a Technics Sl-1000 mk2

    I have never seen another like mine. Who made yours? Makes me wonder if it is the same guy that made mine. The difference being mine has fantastic wiring, dead silent and about 10 watts per channel...each channel strong.

    But it looks like the same guy built them. Or one of them copied the other? When was yours built? and do you know the builder?

    I bought mine off Ebay as well. The seller was the builder. His name is Dave Ricciardi. (I asked permission to give credit to him) I'm wondering if he built yours as well...maybe one of his earlier ones. To my knowledge he has built several Magnavox amps in this style. I know of mine and one that is red and white based off a different tube amp by Magnavox.

    I have seen those amps as well, almost bought one myself. Glad now I didn't. They do have a cool look to them though....

    I did a major reorganizing of my computer and audio equipment today. I moved my media server to my newer A/V rack which required relocating the UPS closer to that corner of the living room. I had to move some network cables and find longer speaker wires for the subwoofers, too. Luckily I'll only need to purchase a couple of minor items to make it all fit together again.

    I'm moving my two channel audio rack closer to that same corner so I can fit one more comfy chair in the room for group movie watching.

    The next step is to move my printer to it's new location and mount my main stereo amplifier in the aluminum audio rack. And hook up a few more speakers. {grin}

    Anybody have a single audio shelf solution? Here’s a pretty silly mock up. I don’t have access or time for a diy solution. Just want to put my preamp above the CD player and DAC. Limited space on this ikea shelf. Since getting married and having a baby, now toddler, I don’t see us using my salamander rack for a few-everal years.

    It’s for a modest system.
    Technics sl1600mk2 with (pmount adaptor)Stanton D737 with d72s stylus to emotiva phono pre amp going analogue in on the emotiva dac. Oppo 980h going coaxial into the Emotiva DC-1 dac. Bryson 2B-LP pro monoblocks powering Vandersteen 1C’s. I have a recently recapped audible illusions 2D that just makes this system come to life. The hours just disappear. Not that I have hours anymore, but I’d like to set it on a shelf in the middle. I have looked on and off for a few years and have toyed with the idea of making something. Just can’t get it together.
    Any suggestions for a pre made or a plan, or someone who would make something for less than $80?

    Should I start a new thread? I'm coming from headfi, where starting new threads unnecessarily is frowned upon.

    Have you considered a wall mount turntable platform?

    Thanks for the suggestion. Not really. The turntable is pretty isolated, and if it was wall mounted would essentially be in the same spot. I guess that would free up some space, but for now, since we may move the shelf around, etc, I’m looking for a single shelf solution with long enough legs. Maybe something adjustable. A pre cut piece of lumber with some big metal bolts or poles is all I can think of. Just not so great at finding something like that.

    My DIY in the forum here somewhere. Thick baltic birch. A few different 80/20 profiles. SUPER solid.
