Ok out of all the various questions and roadblocks I've come across going through thus HT Journey, this is one I can't seem to solve.

I need a 4-6 shelf rack, open concept, and available in Canada. The top shelf needs to be at least 6.7" tall, if not bigger (the Denon AVR-3805 needs its room)... Sanus has a Platnium Stand that has 9" shelves...any thoughts on them?

What do you guys have?

Build your own is not an option for me, being 90% blind and all

Are you located in the GTA?

If so, take a trip downtown and walk along the trendy furniture districts...

King St. East (from Parliment to Jarvis): many trendy and cool furniture stores (there must be a map somewhere that highlights all of them...)

Queen St. West (from Peter St. to Strachan): ditto, but maybe not quite as expensive as King St. East.

Open concept still seems to be a popular trendy look, so you'll likely find many items to suite your tastes. Many are customizable with your choice of a dozen wood staines or glass types.

I have an older Sanus rack. The build quality is excellent.

I just put together this bad boy this weekend. Very easy to assemble, and VERY high quality. It looks great and matches my Axioms quite nicely to boot (rosewood finish with black screens)

I have this system:

http://www.audioholics.com/about/staffsystems/system3.php

...which I reviewed here while I had the Epic 80 System:

http://www.audioholics.com/productreviews/avhardware/BDI_furniture_review_1.html

Can't beat that I think... Plus it comes in Black as well.

I like it! I'm waiting on my SRS4 form www.middleatlantic.com. They cost about $275. The space I will save will offset the cost in the long run. I'm getting two of them. I can't wait.

So it looks like the "cognac" finish matches the boston cherry pretty well from that link of yours. Is that in fact what I am looking at?

Hawk (Clint :P) I had a peak at BDI's stuff, but $800 (via racksandstands) is pricey as hell :P and glass shelves kinda scare me.

Daphoid,
a good bet might be to try a couple of B&M stores in your area. I don't think you have A&B sound stores down east, but a Future Shop or Best Buy might have something like this Gusdorf. I picked up a larger 10514 model TV stand and it has a nice open design (solid too). I believe the Brick has started carrying their line of products as well. Bonus is they aren't too pricey.
