Help with a wide/twin bay rack
So as my system grows, I'm realizing that my rack is rather inadequate for a number of reasons (everyone feel free to respond with their witty plays on "rack"...I've already teed it up). I'm looking to find a horizontal solution with two wide shelves that would allow me to have my SCD-1 and TT (Right now a MH MMF-7, but eyeing a Scoutmaster or Ares 2) on the top shelf, and my integrated (see system for list of contenders) DAC (stello or MuFi trivista) and phono stage below. There's not a WAF factor, but almost as difficult MAF factor (where "M" is "Me; I'm pretty picky). Mostly, I just want something not dominated by glass, cheesy looking, sonically detrimental, or too stiled. I have rather eclectic tastes, and want something that will show off my lovely toys, which is really what this is all about (yes, I'm a small, shallow child).
I'm looking to keep this under a grand, and so far the only thing tolerable I've found is the Bell'o 2512/2500 (different finishes, and about 200 price difference). It looks a little too ikea for me, and I wonder if it's really worth the money. Do you think a viable solution would be to get a suitable piece of furniture, and invest the same amount in isolation platforms and footers, and do some tweaking to the piece itself? (I'm a furniture dealer, and can modify most things).
Any ideas, links, pictures, etc. would be much appreciated.
