Amplifier stands.....

Anyone have a source for amp stands or something that you did yourself that you would share? With a pair of Silver 7T's coming its time to park those bad boys next to my Klipsch! I was thinking maybe along the lines of some maple blocks, but maybe that doesn't go with all my black gear.... so lets see some ideas!

Re: Amplifier stands.....

here is the start of my amp table...
went to lowes looking for material to make a table, I let my daughter pick the color, she found some pinkish white polished granite, and for the edge we picked a 12x12 sheet of small glass squares, she picked a platinum color.....had to order this.
going to use mdf for the body of the table, next week I will cut some legs out of stainless, then over the weekend we will put this together....
trying to get my kid into audio.....
I have a ton of extra stuff to set her up with a system that will kick ass, plus it will drive her mother nuts.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nice.... thanks for sharing that idea! I would certainly like to see the finished product.

And whenever we can pass on our love of music and the equipment that drives it.... well it just seems like the right thing to do!!!

I take it that you are not aware of the cost of the above amps.
