Places to buy audio racks?

Post by JJ2013 » Sat Jun 15, 2013 2:08 pm

Hi y'all,

I've been googling and yahoo'ing around for ideas and I read somewhere that a furniture store stocked a nice looking wooden case/cabinet that could be retrofitted with 19 inch rails. Some of these costs oodles of cash though!

I could probably do it myself, but I am looking to buy a 19 inch case for an
audio rack (just a couple of rails and a framework that holds it all together). Do you have any suggestions for finding just a frame that would come with 19 inch rails on the front? I will have 5 pieces of equipment in the case (perhaps 6, making it a 6U rack), but don't want to spend a lot of money.

Any suggestions on where I could find one of these? I know companies out there offer really nice furniture looking pieces with front and back rails pre-installed and I've been looking at one. However, I don't really need all of the parts and would leave the "top" panel off most likely any way for better air circulation through the audio equipment. It's just that I would be still paying for the "top" panel even if I don't use.

Something like what is shown above, but I don't like the angle and the size. Also, I wouldn't want to spend money of shipping from the UK to Texas.....

Sure will appreciate additional thoughts.

Maybe this could be a good address?

I am asking for trouble by using a rack mounted fan?

OK, sorry my bad, found one with extension .nl (for The Netherlands) and assumed that the .com was USA located.
