I have used a Bello rack for a long time now. This is what I had:
I recently moved and it was damaged in the truck. I was planning on buying another more updated unit. Like this one:
They both have the same weight capacity, but here is my problem.
I have a Parasound 6 channel amp. It used to sit on the bottom rack. The glass on that rack was only a half inch from teh metal frame. The amp is over the recommended weight capacity of both racks. I e-mailed Bello and they did NOT suggest using either rack. They suggested an all steel unit. The Amp which weighs 70-80 pounds sat on that bottom rack with NO problems. What scares me is the new model rack's lowest shelf is much higher off the ground. Wound this make a possible unsafe condition. I think if the amp were to break through at that height it may cause the entire rack to tip. Dumping alot of equipment! Anyone have any insight to this. I would hat eto order one just to have it not work! This site does have the greatest prices on the stuff. I bought that first rack at 6TH ave for over 1000, years ago. Thanks for any input.
