Best hi-fi and AV racks

The ideal environment for your hi-fi and home cinema kit is level, dust-free and secure. These racks tick most of those boxes and a few more besides - though the dusting is your job. So don't go to Ikea, don't even think about stacking stuff on the floor - get one of these instead. Trust us, your system (and your ears) will thank you. And with Black Friday around the corner, it's a good time to be keeping an eye out for bargains.
