    My freshly refurbished vintage metal office book case. Using it as a stand for my R2R. Orange and teal with burgundy interior. Camera makes the orange look red. Was going to keep it original with typical vintage office furniture grey, but decided to spice it up a little. 10.5" reels fit perfectly in it. Might make a wood top as the sheet metal has a little flex in it from the weight of the R2R.

    Pangea Audio Vulcan in plain ol' black. Nothing fancy but it does the job. I did turn it "backwards" because I thought the flat back side looked better than the rounded off front. Need to get the extra shelf kit so I can put my tape player in there.

    The speaker stands are NOS Paradigm from the mid 90s. They are surprisingly heavy and nice with metal carpet spikes. Again nothing fancy but really sturdy.

    Couldn't manage all this gear without the five shelf "Z" rack. Leveling is done with it's adjustable feet.

    Those little Ikea units KLH9 shows in #607 are quite good and very useful. I once used 4 to house my complete system. They can be stacked or adjacent. They're on casters for easy moving, even when carrying 2 50lb mono amps, with a 40lb turntable on top; plus they're rigid, with no wobble. They're open-backed for easy hook-up and cooling air flow. Shelves are height-adjustable in 1.5" steps, and can house a slim-line preamp with its matching monster power amp, with the right spacing.

    I'd still be using them but I moved away from racks in general. My gear doesn't need to be centralized, and I now prefer to decentralize because it's less obtrusive.

    I don't know the name, and it's probably not a current product. I got one from a friend, found three others at thrift shops, all at least 10 years ago. I'm not much help, sorry.

    This gear sits on top of an old piano bench. Inside the bench tubes are stored and underneath are LP's.

    Shoot, I use a dresser as a stand. Currently my new system is on the floor in another room for testing. I'm in the process of going open baffle with some Betsys.

    Found a new home for my gear. It was the right size had sliding doors the left door is glass to show the gear off and the right side is big enough to hold records and fit my reel to reel. Plus the silver accents go perfectly with the silver faced gear. Got an incredible deal for it weighs a ton though. I'll probably take some better pictures when I've got some daylight.

    Edit: a couple more pictures in better light.

    What you need now are some nice speaker stands that get the tweeters at ear height when seated. Those speakers (Advents?) are not floor standers.
