Now there’s is a middle aged middle class topic for you.
But a serious one nonetheless.
A built in wall unit encompassing hi fi ,TV books and assorted crap (Mrs Wells collection of ceramics for starters) are to be housed in a timber wall unit.
The bloke that does these things has been around and a design has been sketched out. My concern is the hi fi set up.Currnetly they (t/table, tuner, amp, cd player ,tape deck …yes tape deck) are all housed on a metal stack that I rahter brilliantly attached some felt to on the bottom so I can slide the unit out on ther floorboards and tinker round with assorted leads and cables- just like a real roadie. But thisis not an option in Mrs Wells brave new world. I thought of shelves on sliding racks but they wont be adjustable should a new piece of equipment have differnet dimensions and I wonder about the stability esp for the turntable( hmmm perhaps wooden base for t/table and sliders for units below, but how to get down belowthe turntable shelf which necessarily goes on top…..).
So you see my challenge. Anyone amongst the Massive ventured into the realms of built-in cabinetry and how to accomodate hi fi with practical rear access …TMFTL
