Ensuring your hi-fi and home cinema kit gets the support it deserves is important: it will help isolate delicate electronics from unwanted vibrations, which can affect performance, and keeps everything cool by allowing plenty of ventilation around each component.

You've just invested a significant amount of money in a new system but the job isn't finished yet. Don't stack your system on that rickety table; opt for a solid, stable support instead – and don't even think about putting it on the floor.

Hi-fi and AV kit needs a dust-free, level and secure base otherwise it won't operate at its best.

Invest in a dedicated rack and you'll reap the rewards. This list will ensure your system gets all the support it needs.
