yashu: you might try boltz or billy bags. boltz makes a 2400 cd rack for <700 usd. both company's products are very sturdy and well-built.
I've made several CD racks that are inexpensive, and will
hold hundreds of CD's depending on how big you make them.
They're pretty simple. E-mail me if you'd like the instructions to make them. Most of my friends that see them think they were purchased, so I guess they look O.K. too! E-Mail: [email protected]
I bought two Harlequin media storage cabinets from Bombay Furniture Company (probably found in your local mall). They have closing doors and store CDs in the doors and on shelves. They look like real furniture and the spouse acceptance factor is off the chart. You may need 3 of them for your healthy collection, but 2 handled my 1500ish collection with room to spare. I paid a little over $200 each, which may seem pricey but was actually a good investment (for me).
I like Tree Designs (http://www.treedesigns.com). I have a 750-cap. one in black oak that is very well built. The larger ones are built w/ kit-type cam locks, but the panels are still very good quality. The shelf assemblies are supported by pins in the side panels- the added bonus was that I needed to move the whole rack across the room and this made pulling each shelf + contents out without removing the discs. They're definitely a good deal for the money.
Alright, now here is the "real deal".
I am almost ashamed to admit this, but you can go down to your local BestBuys and look for the Atlantis CD rack. Now they have plenty of junk so hold your nose as you look. It helps with the smell. You can wear a hat and shades and no one will no you've been there. Anyway, they hold 350 CD's, have silver aluminum bars and black, MDF sides. They cost $79.00 and fit very well into an "Audio Decor".
They are almost as nice as the Bolts, some would say more, since they don't make your room look like a construction site. However, you can not assemble multiple racks together like you can with Bolts.
Your total cost would be around $500.00. So with the money you have saved you could buy 300 more CD's to fill up the empty spaces.
BTW, if you buy let me no how you like them!
