So I'm looking to build a media unit/av rack, getting hold of the materials isn't a problem, will be designing the stand in CAD then getting the main profiles CNC routed as I have access to the equipment. Bits like the feet will just be bought off the shelf (no pun intended).
There seems to be a huge amount of difference in price between these things as usual with anything HiFi. Does anyone have any advice on the main principles/fundamentals of good AV rack design? I guess the main thing is to produce something fairly sturdy and provide good isolation of the individual pieces of equipment from each other and the floor but I'm wondering what the best ways are of achieving this?
