    No reason a third box cannot be used but it really shouldn't be necessary so long as the unit is properly secured within the center of the inner box.

    Make sure to tape the lids tight of the inner box to hold it down.

    Audio Classics box was fine, not a dent in it . I can't recommend either shipper as both are a luck of the draw so to speak.

    My MCD500 was triple boxed from the music room and the 1st box was suspended in the original Mc box by four Styrofoam inserts and the outer box was completely surrounded in cut pieces of Styrofoam around the Mc box. It traveled across the country for a week 3x via FedEx and arrived safely each time.

    Can anyone share WHO at Audio Classics is the right person to contact about boxes? I did a "contact as" on their site to one of the fellas yesterday and got no response yet.
