a simple mod on the lack tv unit

jonas tipped me on this media set-up, modified from the lack tv unit, on minhembio. both sides of the tv unit are removed and replaced by metal legs.

    within 1 month the lack will bend…

  3. Where do you lead the cables? Is there any way to lead them through the top shelf? I’ve got something similar and judging from the weight it’s either hollow or filled with very light and soft material.

    Looks like the “legs” are 1/4″ threaded rod you could find at Home Depot. You should find loads of info if you Google “diy flexy rack”.

    Does anyone know where to get those metal “legs”, or even what they would be called such that I can try and find someplace that sells those online?

    the upper shelf seems to low to the receiver unit….might not be well ventilated for the air vent holes on the top panel of the receiver.

    Looks great. Although…is the lower shelf sagging a little bit? It almost looks like the weight of the stereo is causing the shelf to bow.

    Or maybe it’s just the photo.

    Well, its changed to a new form… I don’t see how it isn’t a hack.

    On a side note, that color does not seem to be offered in the US. It that unit varnished a different color?

  10. I don’t see how this is a hack. Anyone else?

    I wonder what line of conduit and walljacks that is.
