DNM reson from the UK makes a rack that is designed to be used with their gear and the resolution opus (Jeff Kalt of Resolution and Denis Morecroft of DNM have worked together on some design elements)
The rack is very light and uses a type of light transparent "plastic" for the shelves. The rack itself is made from black, thin, hollow tubes that attach together (I believe these are aluminium). The rack is relatively affordable and comes flat packed so easy to ship and assemble or disassemble
The fit and finish is good the look is very utilitarian and when I had an all DNM system with the Resolution Opus it worked the rick as a nice tidy package.
BTW that was one of the very best systems I ever put together with the top line DNM amp, 3Dsix pre with phono and the GNSC upgrades Opus 21.
timbernation can make a rack to any size you prefer out of solid maple or walnut. i'm sure mapleshade can customize their racks for you as well. i've never purchased anything from eithe company, but they have a good word of mouth reputation from what i've seen.
how long have you had your components? i would say wait at least two or more years before committing to a custom sized rack as it would be a shame to have a small rack custom built only for you to change one of your components out for a standard size piece that no longer fits on your rack. i'm sure you've already contemplated this, but just in case...
I just purchased a Salamander Designs shelf. It holds my 6 components and includes a TV Bracket for the TV set to attach to. This allows the TV set to float above the cabinet (expensive wall mount not required). Please see http://www.salamanderdesigns.com/ They make several different models so see the web site.
I used to work in a health food chain in mpls,mn.In walks pia zadora,she was a gas to bs with of course see in person.She was amazing looking in person,as i drueled over her she said she come back tommmorow...sure enough picture autographed by the lovely pia zadora.....never forget it.I met lou anderson too,but not quite as thrilling,pia was nothing like her persona...what ever that was?
You should also check out the Audiav racks at www.audiav.com. I just purchased a custom built rack and AM VERY PLEASED. I like the cam-locks used to build the rack.. no messy or exposed hardware.. very clean looking and likely would look good with the equipment you mention. There are multiple options for shelving/finishes/even the ability to match custom wood trim if you like. All shelf heights are infinitely adjustable and it was a snap to install at home. IMO his racks are superior to many others including ADONA and Billy Bags at least in terms of function/adjustability/and subjectively aesthetics.
