No in all seriousness, I really like your new shelves, they look great. It's good to see that you went with solid timber, better quality and much more attractive than any particle board shelves IMO.

I think its always interesting to see how different folks place their gear in the rack. Meaning I have seen several people put source components on top first, then the receiver below them, then power amplification and power conditioner on the bottom. Personally, I'm kinda like arc trooper where I would probably put the receiver or pre/pro on top. Do you guys know if custom installers have a best practice with this as well or prefer some order over another?

Yeah, I like how you got that turntable in there as well!

I'm in the process of putting mine together. I'm thinking my component order will look something like this from top to bottom when complete:

-rack light/power strip
-pre/pro
-laserdisc player
-blu-ray player
-DTV tuner
-vcr
-htpc
-Uninterruptable power supply (if I ever get that far).

This totally follows the "keep the good stuff out of little hands reach" concept. You get older, you get taller, you get to touch the laserdisc player.... maybe. lol.

They prefer to keep heavy components lower & hot components higher, but thermal management solutions & aesthetics play a role also.

http://www.middleatlantic.com/pdf/ThermalManagement.pdf
http://www.ehow.com/how_7306629_arra...rack-case.html


Equipment_Positioning.jpg
"Believe it or not, in certain circumstances with properly designed furniture, adequate ventilation can come from natural air flow. All of our furniture systems feature space behind the shelving and generous notches in the back panel. This channel of space creates an “air chimney” that allows rising warm air to escape. This natural ventilation can work IF, your equipment does not run constantly, the amplification is modest, and the equipment can be loosely spaced in the enclosure.

Proper equipment positioning is also critical for this natural flow. Your hottest components (Receivers, Amplifiers, DVRs, and Media Center PCs) should be placed at the top of the cabinet and should not be stacked upon. This way the hottest air will not rise up through your other components. Leave as much excess space above each unit as possible. As you work your way down the equipment cabinet, position progressively cooler components. Components at the bottom of the cabinet should be devices like CD players, DVD players, or VCRs as they tend to run pretty cool. The hotter, upper components should each have their own shelf. The lower, cooler components can be safely stacked on each other, a couple per shelf. A good rule of thumb is, if it has vent slots on the top, it’s a “hot” component. Do NOT stack these components and place them higher in the cabinet. If it has a solid top surface, it likely runs cooler and can be placed lower in the cabinet. See the diagram depicting an example of good equipment positioning."
