    Sorry for the late response, I wasn’t aware that my hack had been posted.

    To answer some of your questions:

    - Yes, the remote works through the cloth.
    - The speaker cloth was bought in a Norwegian web shop, but I’m sure that you can find it on Amazon as well.
    - I’m not trying to hide the Tivoli and Mac Mini from view, but from my curious 1 year old daughter :)
    - I belive the white Samsung TV is discontinued, sadly.

    several amazon sellers sell speaker cloth.

    so where can i find speaker cloth?

    You’d improve your stereo imaging a bit if you relocated the Mini to the bottom shelf and the right speaker to the top shelf.

    I love it. I’d like to do this with the plethora of computer equipment we have. Pop all the boxes in a vertical expedit unit, and cover with speaker cloth.
    Cheers, JD

    Simple and beautiful. I have been designing an entertainment system rack but I hadn’t figured out what fabric to use and how to attached the frame. You solved it all for me.

    Well done.

    Does the remote control Infrared signal penetrate the speaker cloth?
