EOI Custom Built Home Theatre Rack with Mass Storage

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at a downgrade in theatre rack size and I'm asking for EOI on my rack. This was custom built to my design and will suit almost any home theatre that can accomodate its size and colour. It houses 9 separate pieces of equipment plus all the additional storage for DVDs, blurays and CDs. It also has the ability to house a HTPC, either in a rack enclosure or a normal desktop enclosure like I'm running. It's on a dedicated shelf which is on a soft close drawer slide so it can be slid out for maintenance without removing the PC.

The six lower drawers are all on extendable roller slides meaning they fully extend the full depth of the drawers which is roughly 730mm. This allows you to easily grab a cd or bluray at the very back of the drawer with ease. They also remove completely from the base with a flick of a switch.

It has two 50watt halogen down lights fitted to the top overhang to light the rack itself and the shelf above the cd storage. The lighting is fitted with a std wall plug. The rack breaks down into two pieces for transport, the bottom drawers and then the upper rack. It also comes with a base on rollers so it can be rolled forward for servicing of the rear of the cabinet.

Specs are:

1753mm wide x 760mm deep x 2170mm high. The rack is a midnight blue colour.

Currently holding 342dvds, 112 blurays and 420 CDs plus the equipment listed above. Also has room for another 112 blurays in the empty spare drawer. Behind the DVDs is more than double the space again for even more storage, I have all my VHS tapes stored back there.lol

Six spare shelves will be supplied with the rack

The rack is in a dedicated home theatre so is only used occasionally therefore it's in excellent condition. This custom rack cost me just shy of 3k to build.

if your interested pm me and I can email some pics.

cheers

I have monitor 2 mounted using a vesa removable arm to cue movies or use the HTPC.

I never got around to painting the edge of the cabinet base black.

DVD stops can be removed easily with two small screws. There's double the space behind the stop for storage.

This is an old iphone pic of the HTPC extendable shelf. It can easily be removed if need be.

How much are you looking for mate? Also any damage and how old it is? 

Thanks Mate

Well i'm not entirely certain what its worth.  I'm guessing around $1500- 2k, although i might be a mile off. To buy something that will house 10 pieces of equipment, over 500 movies and 420 cds and still have storage behind that is impossible to find, unless its custom. The unit is coming up to 8yrs old and doesn't have any external or cosmetic damage. Although i have had to make some modifications over the years.

When it was first designed i made an oversight in making just three or four two inch holes in the back to feed cables through.  As i start installing more and more equipment those holes have become near useless. So the cabinet maker said to remove a panel from the rear for easier access. So directly behind the bluray player, the receiver and the two power amps a section of the MDF has been removed. That was the best thing i did and made cabling much easier. Removing this section has made no difference to structural rigidity of the cabinet.

Here's a pic above the receiver.

Correct it was made by a cabinet maker who main business was kitchens and bathrooms, sadly he's passed away not long after he made this for me. If there's anything else you need to know just say so.

      Item: Timestep Technics SL-1200, SL1210 New Precision Bearing
      Location: OAK PARK, VIC 3046
      Price: $450
      Item Condition: NEW - UNOPENED (JUST GOT IT)
      Reason for selling: NEW DIRECTION
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank Deposit
      Extra Info: Will ship Australia wide at buyers expense. 
       
      This is a brand new unused Timestep bearing for the Technics SL-1200 & SL1210. I just received it from Dave at Timestep, but decided to go in a new direction while in transit. The price i've proposed is the price i paid less GST and shipping from the UK. So saving around $80. 
       
      Technics SL-1200 SL-1210 New Precision Audiophile Bearing
      The standard bearing cannot keep the oil in place.  Instead a high viscosity "anti-fling" oil must be used.  "Other" bearings can only be "topped up" and the oil not actually replaced.  Imagine not being able to change the oil in your car, only adding a bit now and again
       
      Why would you want to change the oil ?  Well we found a fairly heavy oil works best with the Funk Platter and thinner oil for very heavy platters.  But you have the choice, you can take our advice, or change the oil to whatever, whenever !  BTW, unlike others, our bearing fits the Funk platter perfectly, as it should !
       
      The Timestep bearing has the spindle as a solid single piece of polished 303 Stainless Steel with a much larger base diameter and the bearing is polished PB102 Phosphor Bronze. A silicon nitride ball and PTFE thrust pad are fitted. The whole assembly is in a captive oil bath so that you can use more suitable thin oil, or any oil of your choice.  
      One image shows the Timestep bearing shaft on the left and the Technics on the right. The Technics bearing shaft has a cut out just below the brass part, resulting in a diameter of just 5.9 mm, the Timestep bearing shaft at this point is 10.4mm. This gives the Technics a critical bending moment around the reduced diameter. 

      The main part of the Technics shaft bearing surface is 7.1mm diameter and the Timestep one is 11.1mm which results in a bearing surface increase of nearly 2.5 times more (actually 2.445). And that's a lot!  The other image is looking down into the captive shaft bearing. At the bottom would normally be the P.T.F.E. thrust pad and the silicon nitride ball bearing, and a lot of very nice oil. 

      So with 1.76 times diameter at the weakest point and 2.5 times more bearing surface area, you can see why we get such great performance. 
      We deliberately use the existing Technics bearing housing because it fits properly and being cast has great strength and rigidity, also it does not ring like a brass bell.  It keeps the cost down too !
      You don't need any special tools, you don't need to modify the PCB and you don't need to remove parts to get it to fit.  A simple Philips screwdriver is all you need and less than 15 minutes of your time.
      This is the best selling Technics bearing, users have reported more solid bass, considerably better timing, greater soundstage and a general "feel good" sensation.

      Item: PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium HP Integrated Amplifier
      Location: Perth
      Price: $4,500 with EL34 valves, $5,200 including EL34 and KT150 valves
      Item Condition: As new - barely 50 hours on the KT150 valves, nothing on the EL34 valves
      Reason for selling: Sticking with separates

      Extra Info:
      This unit is basically brand new. The EL34 valves were removed and replaced with brand new KT150s prior to initial turn on. It has been used for around 50 hours on the KT150 valves and performed very well. 
      It has been fed with clean power from a PS Audio P10 only.
      New the amp is $6,285 and the KT150 valve set is $1,100.
      Comes with remote, valve cage and all packaging. Input valves will be supplied as standard PrimaLuna - however I do have some others I could throw in as part of negotiations for the right buyer.
      Treated with care in a dust-free installation as can be seen in the photos.
