Because my system was in our living room, and because we had mostly antiques, I was in a similar situation as you. Searching antique dealers, I was able to find a cabinet meant to display dishware that probably originally sat on top of a counter. By strengthening the sides and back and converting the shelves to maple (from Timbernation), this became quite rigid and functioned very well. If you are interested, give me your email address and I will send a picture.
I have most of my gear in an antique jelly cupboard.
I removed some of the back boards for ventilation and connection access. My turntable sits on top and my amps are on floor stands next to the speakers.
This works well for me , when not in use I keep the doors closed so the room is not overwhelemed by gear.
I have modified other antique pieces such as a pennsylvania dutch dry sink.
I think many cabinets can be adapted and work well.
And you say they sound good too?Phaelon, if you rap your knuckles on the stone you get nothing but a dull thud and sore knuckles. The stone seems exceptionally inert. If you click on the Bel Canto pic you can see the shelf up close.
It sounds as if Sean34 found what he is looking for. Good luck with the project Sean.
