I built my last few audio racks, and they were OK but not classifiable as furniture. I can’t count the hours I spent sketching and thinking about of ways to build new ones that would be both useful and good looking without me getting a woodworking shop and better cabinetmaking skills. When the time came to make a decision I chose a ready made set that was my best selling cabinet line back when I had a storefront – the Sanus Naturals. I was influenced by seeing them with fresh eyes at AXPONA in the King Sound suite. While listening to the speakers I looked at the Sanus cabinet and thought how cool they looked. I like the solid hardwood frame, smoked glass shelves, cable management, and really low price. Plus repeated recommendation by The Absolute Sound, which is rare for anything affordable.
The pair I ordered retails for about $700 and sells for as little as $560 on the Internet. I will special order them for $500. Here is what they look like in the finish I chose, Cherry. The also come in black and “Mocha”, a dark finish.:
