    I am realizing that I may not get the time to build a audio tower now, so I have looked for a plan b stand and have looked at probably 15-20 great looking stands on line, in the $400 range, from all the popular brands, most are measured across the front including the supports that are in the way , then the depth is a problem also , Sansui 9090,8080 Marantz 4400, 2250b , RTR ,2-TT, so will need 6 or 7 shelves ,need at least 24" wide shelving 18" deep, would like one large opening for RTR . probably not possible for $400, even $600. I know I cant be the only person that has had this problem.

    One of the many reasons I don't have any monster receivers anymore; those things take up lots of valuable real estate. My solution was to put the unit on the top of whatever rack I was using. Storing them was another headache and I built a custom wide storage flexi for them.

    Most vendors tell you what their stands are capable of holding.

    How about the Pangea below? The shelves are 18" x 24". It's available at Audio Advisor @ $99. The shelves are rated for 44lbs per shelf. Add on shelves are available.
