RE: Lets See all those Vinyl storages spaces !!!

When i'm next near an Ikea, Im going to get an Expedit in Gloss White to match my TT.

Whats the concensus about siting your TT on top of an Expedit?

It would free up my Hi fi Rack too so I will be able to site my AV amp and importantly get my TT further away from my speakers.

Another Ikea storage idea, these are Billy units which were nice and cheap and they keep all my vinyl (oh and books, CDs, etc.) in one place....unfortunately I have to keep them in the dining room as I just don't have the room at the moment.

Greg, I see you are heavily into plastic outer sleeves; which do you purchase? Would you recommend them?

Hi Ifor

Yes I would definately recommend them but then again I am a bit anal when it comes to my LPs (Sleeves are so easily marked) ROFL

I get all mine from Covers 33, been a while but I think it's about 25 quid for 50 delivered (must get some more:type: )

I put adjustable legs under my IKEA unit (see page 1). Got them from B&Q for a couple of quid each. So that you can ensure your TT is level.

But as I have wooden floors, I then went for a wall-mounted Rega shelf above it to be safe.
